If anyone wants a good laugh, definitely check out this thread over on the Red forums. The amount of misinformation is staggering, and, there are many, many more threads just like it. I really hope that a consumer in the market for a 1000 doesn't read this stuff and decide against it.http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthr...er-20k!!/page6
Just a few nuggets I found after a brief skimming:
- Sony rushed the VW1000ES to the market after Red officially unveiled their projector last month. Apparently, Sony has also developed a time machine.
- The Sony is not upgradable and has a built-in "spoilage" date.
- The 1000 is limited to 4K/24Htz because that's just how Sony made it (of course, it doesn't have anything to do with the HDMI 1.4 spec...).
- The Red will be significantly lighter than the Sony (which is very easy to tell by looking at it through glass...)
I'm all for Red entering the projector game and I think they have the potential for a great product on their hands, but... wow... these people are scary! It's almost like a cult. Yikes!
What do you wanna bet Red misses their 2012 launch by months and then charges double what they originally stated (after lenses and other accessories)?
