The 'best' time to upgrade is probably after the CEDIA Expo show (in September). You can either find a good pre-order price for a new 2015 model announced at the show or perhaps find close-out deals...

Your only real choices for use with a 2.35:1 screen at anywhere close to $3K are the Panasonic PT-AE8000 or the JVC DLA-RS46 models that include lens memory. Between these two I would pick the JVC. ...

I would say yes for the initial roll out in 2nd half of 2015 with perhaps 25 to 50 movie titles available by year's end. This is a 60/40 positive answer however. I think we will learn more at CES...

Is there a reason JVC calls it DILA and Sony calls it SXRD rather than LCoS. There are trade names the manufacturers use for their own specific variation of LCoS technology.
