Anyone know of a proper theater setup demo'ing an RS 400/500/600 anywhere from Houston to New Orleans? They are in the Magnolia centers but have terrible viewing environments there. It makes them...

I would normally attribute the poor PQ to bad setups but my Epson 8700UB looked much better right out of the box with no calibration. All I can assume is the light scatter was more severe than I...

Ok I just went to two different Magnolia centers where they were demoing the 550, which is the same as the RS400. Both looked like dog crap. The contrast was like something you would expect from a...

The RS 600 is listed as 150,000:1. My Epson 8700UB is listed as 200,000:1. I find it hard to believe my projector has a higher contrast than the 600 since it's been descried as a "contrast...

Can anyone list a benefit of watching something at home in 8K over 4K? You already need to sit closer than normal to a 4K screen to see the benefits. I would think for 8K you would have to be so...

I can't envision why they would do that. Very little stations, if any, are in 1080P. Jumping straight to 8K when there is no benefit over 4K is a bit silly.

I read that Occulus switched to OLED from LCD mostly to help alleviate motion sickness problems but that should also solve any screen door effect.

I can't wait until one of these models gets tested with actual 4K discs or content. I won't consider one until it does.

I will probably end up with one of the new JVC's. But to be honest, my buddy's Sony eshift 3 for $4000 ( can't remember model number) doesn't look any better than my Epson 8700UB. The real test...

In regards to the streaming comments, even 35 gig files would blow through your monthly data cap pretty fast depending on how often you stream them. At 100 gigs, that would kill a third of your...

I sit 12' away from a 120" screen using an Epson 8700UB with a Darbee. I wonder how big of a jump in PQ it would be going to an RS500. My Epson is pretty darn bright with excellent contrasts.

lol I remember Vizio talking about the logistics problem of even delivering a 120" set. At 160", it might be easier for them to ship the manufacturing equipment to your house and build it there!

As mentioned before, the 120" was to make a statement, not to make a profit. Vizio needed something to get them out of the stereotype of being low end and cheap. The 120" does that.

As far as...
