Most, if not all, of the current 5000ES owners on this forum are very much aware of this issue and I'm sure will be keeping track of the contrast performance over the first few thousand hours. As...

We know the countermeasure(s), as there may be possibly more than one, in the 5000ES was water cooling the SXRD panels. This was told to an owner of that model who spoke with the Sony SXRD engineers...

What "new" panel? All of the 4K units use the same .74" 4K SXRD panel. Same goes with all of the 1080p models over the past 3-4 years with the .6" SXRD panel.

The German hifi forum has a lot more reports then this one does. And even still this forum has a few dozen across several threads. Again, all I see are reports of loss and nothing conclusive that...

The only difference being that, given the information we have so far, the odds say at some point you will lose a massive amount of contrast. Right now we have two people, with low hours on their...

I would hope for the latest version of Display Port instead. One cable, more consumer friendly. Still doubt it's going to happen though. :D

Isn't that exactly what you did when you switched over to a JVC and kept it? :confused: I want to reemphasize the fact that you only had 800 hours on your unit. Please stop talking as if you reached...

We'll see what happens. Though, that's why whenever I talk about it, I make sure to mention that it's a "rumor". I would be SHOCKED if the new unit were to do 120p input at 4K. I'd be interested to...

That has almost nothing to do with the laser light source. It's almost wholly due to the fact that this unit uses two sets of DMDs to increase the contrast. The lasers do enhance the amount if light...
