I was hoping to upgrade my VPL-VW60 to a 4k PJ this year but the lack of a DI in the 300ES is a huge deal breaker. To my knowledge, the 300ES it the first Sony SXRD PJ without a DI. Had they improved...

Craig, I agree that for you, using a 600ES, the black bars may not matter but:

1. The area of the screen is used less efficiently; and
2. For those getting a 300ES, it seems that they will have...

No. Both the 1100ES and the 500ES have this weird 19:10 aspect ratio and resolution.

If one adjusts the zoom to fit the width of a typical 16:9 screen (like mine), one would end up with...

I have a Da-Lite Tension Contour 133" 16:9 electric screen, which cost me some $3,500 a few years ago. At the beginning of this year I replaced the fabric roller with HD Progressive 1.3 for about...

I have the same question. Why do 4k PJs use a 4096x2160 resolution and not a standard HD 3840x2160 resolution? Does this mean we have to change our 16:9 screens? Something does not make sense, I...

I sit 144 in away from my 65 in tall 16:9 screen (133 in diagonal). Does this mean that I would not be able to take full advantage of the benefits of a 4k projector like the 300ES?

There is no way...

I have been hoping to upgrade to a 4k PJ this year but the absence of a DI in the 300ES makes this new PJ a real deal breaker. Its 20,000:1 on-off contrast ratio means the 300ES is worse than that of...

Is it indeed confirmed that the DI has been eliminated?

If that's the case, this would be a huge deal breaker because the on-off contrast ratio of 20,000:1 is smaller than that of my six-year old...

If it's something that alters and post-processes the image, not for me, thanks. I run an unaltered video channel straight from the Blu-ray player, through the receiver to the projector.

Maybe. But one needs an appropriate source of signal, too. To my knowledge, there's not much available in 4k these days.

My screen is 133" diagonal and I sit at 12 ft away. This amounts to 2.2 times the screen height. In order to get the full benefit of high definition, Joe Kane suggests maximum 2.5 times the screen...

Order free screen fabric samples and test your projector with them to see which one would be the most suitable. Try to get large samples, minimum 12 x 12 inches, as smaller samples are not too useful.

Thanks, Mark. I don't know why but I'm not attracted by 4k, which I consider a gimmick, same as 3D is, in my opinion. I'd love to have a PJ with a high-quality, motorized lens, excellent picture...
