Weird colors? On which projectors? Reviews I've read of the Sim2 have said that it can be calibrated to real excellence.
Except the high lumens I don't see any added value for an average consumer at $30k level. Strip out the whole soon to be outdated future technology this projector will be at par with under 7k line. I am one of those who heavily invested on the short lived laser disc technology of early 90s and later HD tv "raedy" tech.
For that money I would go after Sims or DPI projectors which can deliver no nonsense good quality image.
I was also at the Sony presentation and the Sony consumer electronics spokesman also made several statements related to the need for 4K content. A few points were:
A few quick observations on the projector:

As stated in previous posts, there was no mention of price, but it was emphasised several times during the presentation that this is the first consumer 4K projector (thus one would expect pricing to be consumer oriented and not a $100K commercial product). I'm certain quite a few of us here on AVS will be asking Sony representatives tomorrow about price. Perhaps they are holding off a little to set the final retail pricing until they have an opportunity to see what JVC will announce. I suspect the above speculated $30K price point may not be too far off the mark.
