The W11000 while not a stunner in performance actually has a high end feeling chassis that exceeds anything BenQ has ever put out. I was actually impressed with the chassis and the pj was Thx...

Secrets measured the popular Runco LS-5 in 5800-7200:1 range depending on SatCo/BC setting, and that was with a single chip 0.9" DC3.

Modify that to an 0.9" XPR with 17 degree tilt and DC4 and...

I've said this before in other threads, but again if I had to buy a projector under $10000 right now I'd buy the Epson LS10500 with no hesitation, I think it is the best overall. Great on/off...

Well depends which DLP 4k unit you are talking about also.

The W11500 this thread is about (and its slightly more expensive X12500 LED brother) will perform a lot better than the Acer you...

Not necessarily being fooled, some people just want the latest tech features. I mean you could probably argue the entire 4k Uhd format is completely unnecessary given how good 1080p Blu ray looks.

Acer v7xxx will still dynamically increase contrast via lamp dimming, but its slow and not as effective as an iris.

Don't get too excited I just found out the cheaper Acer has no physical iris. It uses lamp dimming like for dynamic contrast the BenQ W1070. Likely artifact city.

Remember also the Lumis used an 0.9" DMD. If Ti made an XPR version of their 1.38" DMD it probably would be similar in contrast capability of the 0.9" 1080p DMDs. So basing a 4k Iumis on an XPR 1.38"...

What I feel you are missing the boat on here is that with DLP native 4k DMD will always be at a massive contrast disadvantage to XPR 4k DMDs of the same size. So unless contrast is not a priority...

This is the point - Any given Dmd size, the XPR implementation will have more contrast than native 4k. It is all about # of micromirrors vs chip size. 0.67 Dmd with 4M micromirrors has more...

The X12000 emits an extremely impressive amount of light for LED but is disappointing in much other regards.

Apparently there is both no dynamic iris and no led dimming into the x12000. Hopefully...

How so? It's quite simple. The more mirrors you pack into a DMD of same size the lower the contrast gets. This is why 0.47" 1080p DMDs have less contrast than 0.67" 1080p DMDs which in turn have less...

Barco put 3D in the spec sheet for the Loki XPR and publicly stated they would be implementing 3D, though I haven't seen one in person.

3D is available on more expensive (over 20k) 4k XPR DLP projectors. 3D works fine with XPR but it is a significant cost (for processing power, ports, etc) while the cheaper Pj manufs are trying to...

Too bad USA apparently isn't getting any of these Acer models yet. Kind of makes the V9800 a tough sell it seems? Perhaps it's louder due to the smaller chassis?

The Barco Loki apparently is 3D capable too or will be with an FW update if it's not already FYI based on Barco's comments.

JVC maxes out at 48khz per eye per my understanding. Epson uses 3:2 frame sequencing on 24p to make 60hz.

Best of course is DLP 72hz with triple flash. No flicker and also no pull down artifacts.
