They both mention the compatible projectors (including the 1000ES/1100ES) in the description. Not sure why they list a 30 day difference with the warranty. I suppose the easiest way to see if they're...

I'll have a very similar setup soon. I'm getting the upgrade through Mike sometime in the next week or two for the 1000ES. Then I'll have the JVC DLA-X500, Sharp XV-Z17000 for 3D and then a couple...

Then I suppose the question really is "what's the best projector?". Haha

The only projector that's out right now that is UHD blu-ray ready (which is what we'll be getting over the next five years) is the Sony VPL-VW1100ES. That's the only projector out right now that...

Yes, I've played around with both Auto-Full and Auto-Limited. What I'll say is that Sony has oddly implemented the auto-iris. With everything but the darkest of content (ala Harry Potter) the iris...

I don't know. If that were the case, wouldn't the "Prev. Lamp Timer" counter say 5 Hours? Unless it was reset again right after the initial reset? It's only 5 hours. No big deal. :)

Maybe the lamp counter only works if you're feeding a source to the projector. So maybe the 5 hour discrepancy is just 5 hours on blue screen time as the projector was waiting for a video feed.

My guess is Sony put this unit through its paces at the factory? Either that or for some other reason this unit was turned on without a bulb installed.

If all they have is the same projector except with native UHD panels I'll be very disappointed. I don't think this will be enough of an upgrade to purchase a unit like this over an X500 especially if...

You're thinking of motion and on/off contrast. The two (motion/response times of the panel and potential on/off contrast) are highly effected by the thickness of the LCoS/LCD panel. The thicker you...

I don't know if Sony will continue the high end 1000/1100ES line and make a "1200ES". The $10000+ price home theater projector market is insanely niche and considering within the next year or two...

There are irises out there that can do the same dynamic range as the laser. That is, they can do a full fade to true black. The Mistubishi HC7900DW and HC8000 are like this. The laser can react very...

That's what the dynamic iris is for on the current generation JVCs. The laser dimming will simply replace the dynamic iris control in the lens. I would imagine they'll keep a manually controlled iris...

So how would that have worked if Tech Data had some in stock? You buy it and just send it with the 1000ES to Sony for them to do the swap? Or would it have not required Sony to do anything?

This doesn't guarantee it. The light created from the laser scatters less so that's good for ANSI contrast and I would imagine that means the wire grid polarizer can work more efficiently but they'd...

You know, this is a great question. If I had to take a guess, I'd argue that if Sony comes out with a 1200ES or something of the sort, Sony won't offer the same type of upgrade path they did with the...

I must have missed your post. It's a good performer for a DLP projector in it's current price range. It has a very sharp image and if you utilize the manual iris it will help quite a bit with...

Marantz claimed 1000:1. I don't know if anyone ever measured that high. Plus you'd have to have the PERFECT room to actually get 1000:1 ANSI contrast. The Marantz can do 10000:1 on/off only if the...
