I agree, the mitsu is a diff tier product than the pjs i mentioned in my first post. However, after reading the Mitsu marketing, which is very 3D heavy, I wanted to make sure its a different tier for reasons I care about. For example, IF it was originally a $2500 PJ due its stellar 3D and so-so other features, its probably not worth it.
My Sharp Dt510 has 1000 lumens, so the Mitsu is still a step up to 1500. I dont have much issue with ambient light other than it might be nice to have a PJ that I can have dim lighting on while watching without losing much performance.
I am torn between the BenQ and the Mitsu (at the sub $1k price). Both seem to meet my needs...
I need an offset of 17" to use my current 6" mount, or I buy a longer one (no biggy),
both are rated "recommended for rooms with ambient light" given the parameters.
Contrast Ratio of 10,000:1 on the BenQ compared to 150,000:1 on the Mitsu is a bit astounding, but I never know how much those numbers are inflated with marketing nonsense.
