With 4K arriving in spades, will be see discounted high end 1080p DLP projectors?

I am still trying to find a mid-to-high end 3D DLP projector that is less than 10k. I just like the "look" of DLP the best, but it seems all that is available is budget stuff or super high end stuff...

FYI, the CABLE MATTERS 15' + 6' passive cable combo fails to work plugged into the Kinect for windows box. And it knocks external storage offline too.

It is unlikely you are ever going to get anything more than BD50 UHD (unless there is another format war, with Toshiba/etc offering a higher capacity disc - of course that would kill the market).

I wish something similar to the m.120 was available under $10k... Would buy for sure. Seems with DLP it is either under 3k, or 18k+. There is very little in between, which is a shame.

I'd rather have 3D also, I quite enjoy 3D as it is a massive departure from 2D. But you do need a DLP projector to do it justice, which is part of the reason it failed in the consumer market with...

Isn't this a moot point given that 2hr of 4k 24fps 10bit 4:4:4 and 4k 60fps 10bit 4:4:4 will take up 5248GB and 13120GB uncompressed respectively - that needs to be compressed to under 40GB?

Based on the details we know so far, it is highly unlikely 4k Blu-ray will play on PS3/PS4/XBOX ONE. There is a slim chance, but it is slim.
