There is nothing around $2,500 DLP for no obvious reason at all. There should really be a DLP model which DOES compete with the Epson and Panasonic at that price range with motorized zoom, excellent lens shift, long zoom, and active iris. Unfortunately, DLP manufacturers just go cheap, cheap, cheap.

They can do this because the DLP technology itself is inherently better than LCD. It has, by far, the fastest response rate for any front projection technology with no real blurring or image degradation introduced by the chip set. The use of a single DLP chip means that you get a razor sharp image with cheaper optics which is a real plus for the consumer.

But of the 200+ 1080p projectors out there it's shocking that only 6 come in between $2,000 and $3,000 with the 2+ year old BenQ W7000 as the only reviewed model from Projector Central...

I'm not sure if BenQ will follow up with a seriously improved W7000 or if they will just stick with that model for a couple of more years, but it is starting to get long in the tooth.

Instead, an upgraded version with more shift, zoom range, etc. would all be ideal and an excellent competitor to the LCD products that are similarly priced.

Still, if I had $2,500 I would figure out how to get to $3,000 so I could get the JVC RS46 or one of the Sony LCoS models.
