I have a old school crt style projector (nex xg 1100) which has served me well over the years, but I'm thinking it's time to embrace newer technology.
The Nec is certainly bright enough, and the media pc it is connected as a secondary display to does a good job converting 4:3 and 16:9 std def and hi def content to 1600x1200,
The projector can go higher but it's painful with focus is going soft. Displaying any PC based window type applications ie a text editor/spread sheet is not worth the bother. Besides, that is what the primary computer monitor is for...
The Nec has rich blacks, excellent color and bright whites. But it is past retirement age. Between no 3d support, and disappointing 1080P performance it's time is near.
I was wondering if the Optoma HD25e would be a disappointment?
My biggest concerns are the low 20,000: 1 contrast ratio, and possible rainbow artifacts and screen door effects.
Would this unit be a good purchase or do I need to save up for a higher priced unit?
ideally, I'd like to upgrade to a smart 4K display with 3d but $$$$ is a problem.
This is a DLP based unit, should I consider d-ila or lcd instead?
Note the primary use is display of a/v material.
