~$10k, but that is not atypical of 0.95" DLPs in general. Here's the Infocus IN81 ($3200 MSRP):

So are you saying the lens that produced this (1080p) image is incapable of resolving 4K?

And the VW600 (the US version of the VW500) isn't anywhere close to under $10k, it's $15k with SURE pricing.

Well, for example the VW600 lists itself as "HDMI 2.0 Compatible", however it is only capable of 10.2Gbps not the full 18Gbps, so it potentially won't fully support 4K BD. Apparently some Receivers...

True but I think H.264 .mov files are really an mp4 container, just with a different extension, so in this case the renaming is just for file associations/recognition.

One thing I'm curious about...

Well even without HDCP, displays like the Sony 4K's don't fully support 4K due to their limited, 10.2Gbps HDMI chips. They will probably be able to handle most 4K Blu-ray's since they'll be 24fps,...

Yup, my Dell Precision M3800 has a 15" 3200x1800 display. Obviously if you set your desktop like normal, everything would be way too small to use. So I have my text size set to 185% (High DPI...

Well if there's no VW300 (or VW400) then the VW600 is still the cheapest 4K projector available. The Epson is pseudo-4k just like JVCs have been for the past few years.
