I don't think there will (or can) ever be a "perfect" projector. The Home Cinema 1080 was fantastic: HDMI 1.3, great black levels for LCD, low price, etc. (But it had the "rainbow text" problem and did not display 1080p/24 at a multiple of 24 Hz.) Then, the 1080UB came out-all that was fixed, and better black levels too. (But, lots of convergence issues.) Then, the 6500UB came out-it has 4:4 output for 1080p/24 and frame interpolation for video, longer bulb life, etc. (But, focus and convergence issues, and a bad supply problem.) So, the 6900UB or whatever will probably have motorized zoom and focus, self-tracking/auto-correcting brightness to compensate for gradual bulb dimming, or who knows what next. Eventually, we will have LED-lit projectors with the brightness of today's models. Imagine, never buy a new bulb. Then, after that we will get projectors with LED arrays to replace the single-point light source of the older models, and that will boost contrast ratios even more. And so on, and so on.
I would be happy just to get a non-flawed current-spec projector into my house...
