Looks interesting. Could be a great choice for those looking for a non-DLP flash 3D projector for under $1500.

Does the Vivitek use Unishape and 144hz triple flash too?

Warranty repair/service could get pricey with shipping costs if Benq USA refuses or is unable (not stocking parts, etc.) to service it.

I wonder what he'd think about 3D IMAX?

Still you can buy international warranty for a couple of hundreds,if not for lees.
it's infocus,not benq.
if you buy from amazon OK,you still can return the defected items and they will pay for shipping.
I ,my self had once a defected viewsonic projector ,they sent me a prepaid shipping labels(that was(http://www.jp-uk.co.uk/),not amazon.
so if you think you like it after reading reviews when they are out,then you may consider buying warranty as well.

Dark Chip 3 and a very generous throw range.

I need a link so I can order one. Amazon UK ??

There is not a requirement for 50 Hz power is there?

807 euros shipped via UPS from computer universe in Germany to Minnesota. Once in stock there, I may go ahead and buy it. The downside is warranty return ... but a great "beamer" for the price. Notice how I threw in the German slang for projector. I have ordered high def. DVD's from Germany before, no issue.

I like "beamer" more than "projector"! biggrin.gif Sounds way cooler! Now laser projector is officially named "lazer beamer"!

So the Vivitek is the same projector as the Infocus, but with a black chassis instead of white, correct?

Infocus sales told me to check back by 3rd week of November for US availability. Vivitek claims only 120 Hz flash while Infocus claims 144 Hz but I assume they both use the 4422 DMD driver as mentioned by Infocus.

Even with that, they claim 10000:1 contrast. I'd be tempted to place a shield a few inches in front of that if it mattered.

Check out this datasheet... the entire page 3 is dedicated to their UNISHAPE lamp technology:

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Not native contrast.

Not impressed.

Oh it's true.

NO DLP has 10,000:1 native contrast.

Most of the better ones (even high ends) are in the 3000:1 range native.
