One is hopeful, but it's rather discouraging that dlp pj's have shown very little improvement in native o/f CR in the last 4-5 yrs, an eternity in AV developments. (They've been relying on 'dynamic black'.)
Well I've got 150 hours on my Vango and the quality of the picture it produces still delights me. It is just so smooth and natural looking. I don't know if the images are so pleasing because there is no color wheel involved and this gives better control over how the colors are mixed, if it is that the really good lens is providing extra detail, or if it is simply the LED light source, but there is something different about this projector.
Granted it may not have the world's best ON/OFF contrast, but in scenes with a mix of very bright and dark elements - the lighter stuff just jump off the screen and there is still plenty of detail in the dark areas. We just watched 'The Half Blood Prince' and even its darkest scenes were full of detail. I just love the idea that it will essentially look this bright next year, and the year after, and the year after...
