I don't have my Minolta back yet so I can't tell you what my unit is measuring, but if you read the Lumis thread, most got between 2200-2400 calibrated lumens (the numbers differentiate depending on...

Like you said, the same thing can be said about the Sony. In the US you can buy an JVC X500 for less than a quarter of the price of the 1100ES and we don't see a drastic difference in PQ between...

I would agree that a new SuperLumis and Lumis are overpriced for the PQ you get compared to projectors like the Sony 1000ES but it doesn't seem overpriced when you take into account other 3 chip DLP...

They won't do LEDs because they are a step backwards in light output. There are no other major benefits other than longevity to the LEDs. My guess is laser, 4K native chips or a simple refresh of...

Zombie has a similar combination. Sharp XV-Z30000 for 3D, Sony 1100ES and JVC DLA-RS55 for 2D. Killer combo.

Thanks for that. I always thought they used a color filter for each LED.

Correct, there are three LEDs and each one has a color filter over them (one green, one red, one blue) and the colors are flash sequentially which eliminates the color wheel.

My point about using...

I only ask because I've only seen LEDs implemented in a single chip DLP proejctor and the LEDs had a color filter over each one to create green, blue, and red for sequential color. I'm assuming since...

I would say that it depends on the price you're getting. If he's asking more than $2000 I'd pass. I'd actually prefer to own something like the RS45 or RS46 over the RS60. The newer generations JVCs...

The gain is only 1.8 on that material. This has been measured by several well respected publications/pro calibrators. Also, that is also only 1.8 gain when you're on axis plus or minus 30 degrees and...

In a three chip projector where would the LEDs go? Is a single LED placed next to each chip or are they all still placed at the beginning of the light path without a color filter?

I think that's the case too. But that can also be turned around on Sony 1000ES owners that argue their image is better than the JVCs. Both are good in different ways. I guess I'm just lucky I didn't...

The amount of money they want for one is besides the point I'm making. I'm asking purely about picture quality, not value. You still think the 1000ES has an "extreme" advantage? If that's the case,...

Is the "formatter board" the one that holds and controls the DLP DMD? If it is, I would avoid changing it out. The last thing you want to do is open up the "sealed" part of the light path and let...

That should be good for Sony. This will most likely take away a lot of business from JVC if they only have a 1080p model to offer us this year. Sony could use a little extra cash right now, even if...

We'll know more in a few weeks at CEDIA if 4K BD is coming soon. I would imagine we'd see some kind of announcement there if it's coming out soon. My guess is that it's another year off.

Yeah, with an 1100ES MSRP'ing at $27,000 it's more than 5 times the cost of an X500 and still 3 times cheaper compared to the 600ES. Street prices do bring that multiplier down a bit but were still...
