The irony is that this will likely be sharper than all of the 4k projectors currently out on 99.9999% of content (1080p) due to no convergence errors and best motion resolution. And it probably won't...

Vivitek has better motion resolution due to nature of technology...

Couple of reasons this is better than the Runco:
1. It's new and has a 5yr warranty, instead of used and no warranty.
2. It has an LED light engine, meaning RBE is basically eliminated unlike the...

This type of projector will never be 2K with its superb build quality and lens. $2k is Optoma/BenQ territory.

Thought the native CR is not great compared to LCOS, it has decent dynamic CR and an...

The UHD version doesn't have the 3D Blu-ray right? It sounds like the 3D on this movie is pretty awesome:

I am not confused nor "directly equating" dynamic contrast to native contrast. I am aware the LS10000 has much higher native contrast and I am aware the 8x multiplier of the H9090 (hence my...

UHDBD is rec2020. Yes, the current BDs are DCI-P3. But the format supports rec2020, beyond digital cinema standards.



For me it is common sense. If a movie was not shown in high dynamic...

Unforunately, that wider color gamut (btw, UHDBD's color gamut is wider than theaters) is always paired with HDR, which does not represent the theatrical experience in most cases.

If contrast is the only aspect of the projector you measure by, yes it is similar - which makes sense as it is basically the same DMD. But DLP has improved in other areas.

For instance:

If the original theatrical audio configuration is available on a Blu-ray, that is always the mix I select - even if it is 2.0 or mono instead of a 5.1 remix.

TI needs to put out a .95" 4k consumer DMD to bring on the quality black levels. The .95" 1080p Vivitek H9090 recently released, for instance, can do a measured 15000:1 contrast (per Secrets) with...

Why would I want HDR when nearly every movie released was released theatrically *without* HDR?

Epson LS10000 is 250ms+ with 4K e-shift enabled, but if you disable 4k e-shift and turn off processing it brings it down to 50ms @ 1080p. I agree rather hopeless then new Epson 6040 will pull good...
