In general both the Runco Q750i and PD8150 look almost indistinguishable in terms of picture quality. The light engine, optics, video processing, and DLP chip are the same. The only real difference...

Agreed. The Avengers was an excellent example of this.

I saw it in theaters twice in 3D.

JVC makes more profit from the flight simulation market than they do from the home theater segment of the market. The laser models mentioned from JVC were designed specifically with flight simulators...

I like the longer calibration hold and longer "fresh lamp" lumen output the lasers have but I think you're right about the availability and limited end replacement possibilities that lasers have....

I have no issue with watching 3D. In general, when it's done well, I like to watch movies in 3D. I just think it's a fair point to say it's dying. I don't think making that point "spoils" it for...

Thousands of movies are released every year. Just because you have a half dozen examples of major movies being released in the next 24 months doesn't mean 3D is doing well or that somehow it will...

I think you're in for a big let down. 3D is already fading out and will be dead within 2 years. By the time we get a solution (brighter projectors without flicker) people will have already moved on...

I have the same setup (i7 5930K with 16GB DDR4 RAM and two GTX 980s). I was using a 4K monitor for a couple months and had no issues keeping the resolution at 4K60p. I didn't have any problems with...

If you're after more brightness, yes. The picture is very similar otherwise.

Oh you have an add on anamorphic lens. The prime lens is still the same as the other Marantz 1080p units.

Home theater projectors are almost exclusively announced at CEDIA, not CES. And sometimes at IFA. So the overwhelming chance of anything being announced at CES is pretty low. CEDIA is not until the...

About 9 months ago I purchased a B-Stock VW90ES and I had a terrible experience regarding contrast. At the time I had a JVC DLA-X90 and a Sharp XV-Z30000 here and both of these units were remarkably...

I went through three 2.4 High Contrast High Power screens before getting one that wasn't defective. The issue was a terribly uneven spread of the optical coating (glass beads) and it gave the image a...

By "upgraded" do you mean the long throw lens? If you mean the high ANSI contrast optical coating, both lens options (short and long) got this lens coating. It was only for the 11S1 where the long...

Unless he gets one used (and even still it'd need to be a good deal) I doubt he can afford one. The X500 on a good day can be found for as little as $3100 for a b-stock (~$4000 new). Most of the...

In that price range only the Runco LS-5 is a good projector to throw in the mix in terms of picture quality. It lacks a lot of other features these other projectors have though, like support for 3D,...

I stand corrected. But not all 4K signals are supported. The manual also says:

With a 1080p 3D signal it will work, but not for a 4K input. It will work with eshift enabled if the source is 1080p, however, and I think this is what you mean. The reason behind this is because it...

That's why. If you don't have an input signal going to the projector, that option will be greyed out. Send a signal to the projector and it should be available again.

I'm not 100% sure. It's the same lens in general but they may have made tweaks over the years, especially now that the iris device is a different one compared to previous years.

No, I'm not a lens expert by any stretch of the imagination. The good thing here is that it's rather rare that a projector manufacturer that's selling a projector in the under $15000 price tell us...
