Totally. Although, I think it can also lead to it being overlooked.

That's telling you what it's inputting, not outputting.
For example, the current Marantz DLPs specifically tell you the PJ's output rate is 48Hz when using frame rate conversion on 24p material. As I understand it, with DLP 1-chippers, it is a bit more complicated than LCD or LCOS 3-panels to get a 24-multiple rate as it involves adjusting the speed of the DMD *and* the color wheel.
Thus, I am extremely skeptical the HD8600 is able operate outside of 60Hz. The only possible indicator is the fact that they offer a CFI of any sort, but this just could be 2:3 pulldown or other cadence variations within that narrow range.
Having said that (for all you Curb fans), I haven't been keeping up with the latest PJ advancements until recently (upgrade bug!) and could be completely missing something. I'm looking to possibly replace my trusty Sharp Z12k and want to stay with DLP, but I may end up with the RS25 or something instead.
