Im a fan of the 200 but the 004 people are use to that extra brightness and thats where the 200 is not in the same league.
There is something in the works from Sony but it is now delayed. We may get lucky with an introduction Cedia 08, maybe not. Its not laser.
i had a qualia stack long time ago but when i read about how bright
the qualia is that not true at least in some ways.
i drive it max. light out with no iris at all and full power
that give you in the first hours about 1500 lumen at 1200:1 cr.
if i remember right.
that cr. can increase in iris 2 to good 2000:1 but than the unit have max.
600 lumen light out.
as far as i read here most people drive it in high cr. mode so the
light out was not more then 600 lumen at d 65!
the huge light drop the qualia have(50% in the first 500 houres) are
some other thing.
so todays 600-700 lumen pr
. like the rs2 or the sony vw 60 or vw 200
are at least as bright as the most qualia owners use the pr
and have a far better cr.
some months ago a guy with a qualia visit me and we compare it with a
new 3chip full hd pr
. and i tell you beside cr. the qualia not look bad!
even with the only 150 ansi cr. and 1000:1 on off at
high light out and no iris i measured it looks very nice but i am sure the
qualia will lose if you compare it with the new rs2 the vw 200 or the new maranz single chip dlp.
