The fight Vivitek H9080 vs. OPTOMA HD91 is already sheduled. smile.gif

I don't want to flood this Optoma thread with JVC projectors but JVC should be able to put lasers or hybrid lasers in their projectors in 2 years. Seem as if they can replace the bulb and just add a hybrid laser without degrading its contrast.

Soon, we can have our cake and eat it too

When JVC (and Sony) finally brung LED or Laser light to the consumer, it won't be in a $4000 product. Just like 4K they'll take the time to let it trickle down for the masses.
post #786 of 1158
I think people will be willing to spend over $4000 for a laser based JVC or Sony.

I think he means closer to the MSRP of the 1100ES aka ~$25000.

They did the same thing for the initial batch of LED projectors. More than half of them were just Planar PD8150's with LEDs stuck in place where the bulb and color wheel were. All they really had to do was figure out how to control it via software. There was no reason why they needed to cost $15000+. Here we are a few years later and while this projector as a whole isn't as good (smaller DMD, smaller optics ect.) we're starting to see some lower priced LED based projectors. The same thing will happen with laser projectors.

Who knows, it might be under $10,000

No doubt. But this thread is about the $4000 LED Optoma and so that's the context for the conversation.

So sorry, make sure to report everybody on all the threads for mentioning something not on the topic of the thread.

Woohoo! Will be interesting to see how the technology's moved ahead (or not) in the last few years. Areas of possible improvement would be the pixel doubling ala JVC or improvements to the iris.

The 4K laser short throw projector Sony recently introduced was priced $30 000. That might gives an idea of first prices with this tech and 4K.

I meant to point out that boutique priced gear is probably not germane to someone looking to spend $4000 on a projector.

I was really responding to the OP only with that JVC link. I even stated that I didn't want to put JVC projectors on this thread but he mentioned a Sony and JVC. I was only excepting a response from him

Yeah, I can only keep refresing this page in my browser hoping in vain that there will be an in-depth review posted in a new thread before my hand gives out...
post #798 of 1158
Your best bet is Zombie to give his subjective opinion on it. Those hoping it's going to compete for image quality in it's price range are probably going to be dissapointed with what Zombie has to say. Unfortunately for Optoma there happens to be a lot of great stuff out there already for ~$4000.

Those looking for something that they can keep on all the time (LED based) there are cheaper options out there. There are some cheaper 720p units and some laser hybrid units out there too.

I have one of these options - Viewsonic Pro9000. Laser/LED. No lens shift, limited zoom, no 3D, but, 1080P, decent blacks, smooth DLP pic, good colors, good fan noise, no rainbows. 'Very happy with it.

Must be a real POS for Zombie to not bother posting any impressions.

I need a little something called electricity to run the projectors...

Major storms recently. I'll get back to the optima soon.

I have to take a close look and see what it's doing to the image, but first impression is that it didn't look overly aggressive.

I'd call that a first impression.

Give Zombie a break - he's very busy and can't test / calibrate everything at once. Patience!!

With all these storms and power outages you need to invest in a nice generator that hooks up to your electrical panel so you can enjoy all your toys smile.gif

That's not the successor to the Pro9000, boyzz - it's an UST:

Give Craig a break - he's very busy and can't tell everyone to give Zombie a break at once. Patience!!
post #809 of 1158
It would have to be a pretty glowing review of the Optoma for me to want to ditch one of my Sharp 30k's for it.

Not having the fully motorized zoom / lens shift / focus option kind of kills the deal for me.

But I do like the 20,000 hours, and no dimming over time feature.
