Ble0120 and others
I dont understand it too
I have seen the X70 ( calibreted ) and it was very good and a very fine projector, but I wouldnt even trade it for my 95ES - who I think is a more complete allround projector (BTW thats why I did buy that
, rather than the X70 ), with no major weaknesses in any area ( not that it is doing allthing best - it dont !, but it perform very well on allmost everything and has no area where I think its "fall through".
Dont get it wrong, I did like the X70 and think its a very good value for the money and yes, it has the lowest black level ( without using a DI ) with highest native on/off contrast off all projectors out there ( besides the X90 - and IMO the difference between say "native"10000:1 and 40000:1 is small in the real world and picture quality depending on a lot more things) and maybe a little brightere then the 95Es !? , but it didnt have better intra contrast ( showing "more" or better details in the dark scenes - On the contrary - here I did find the 95 better ) it wasnt sharpere, in was more noisy, it wasnt better on 3D, it wasnt better on motion, it wasnt cheaper,it have less memory settings and have "maybe" lamp problems !? etc. ....you get the point - it didnt fit better ,actully a little less then the 95ES for me
So what about the 1000ES versus the 95/70 on the "paper" and for now ( til I get one to compare by my self ) , the feedback from owners and all the "proffessionel" reviwers and jungle off measurment ( wich half off them are 100% useless, because they are made off a prototype -
In my book it looks like this:
A hell off a lot expensiver
( but this is a personal view
depending on your priorities, and of course your economy )
A much better/sharper optic with better zoom and lens shift ( more flexsible on placement and options )
much more light output in 2D ( giving a lot better options for bigger screens, brighter/ more dynamic picture, possible options with lower gain screens / AT screens )
Better 3D with less/ allmost none? ghosting ( and maybe the opportunity to use a higher settings - duty cycle - of the Monster glasses for more brightness !? )
About same or better black level/contrast as the 95ES ? ( because off higher light output, better DI,better lens )
4K future "prof"
( yes I know, there maybe come 4K48P/60P, and maybe not 4K "bluray" right now and only maybe
it can hardware/sofware upgrades - but I do think, that when the 4K movies arrives, the main part
will be 24P - except maybe the "hobbit" and Avatar 2
) because the most movie theaters cant deal with 4K48P anyway )
Even better motion handling.
extreme silent for the high light output
Higher real resolutions for photo´s and movies ( wich I think is better
even with moderate screen sizes )
Better scaling engine ( the RC chip ) ?
So I really dont understand the comparsion with the X70 - and even less a compersion, where you lower the light output to match them and then conclude they are in the same "ballpark" ( like buy a car, who can
drive 200 KM / Mph? but only
compare them at 120 Km/Mph because the other car cant go any faster than that
Just my 2 cent
