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,...

If you weren't interested in my DC4 Planar PD8150 at the price I was selling, I don't think you're going to be interested in the 11S2 for the price he's asking. He's asking for more. Having recently...

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

I will try this later this evening. I remember trying it very early this year and remembered it being greyed out in the menu's. If this is the case they must have enabled it in a later firmware. But...

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.

Is the input signal going to the projector 4K? If you have a source component that upscales your video to 4K, CMD is no longer an option because the projector cannot do frame interpolation on a 4K...

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...
