With your screen size, maybe the 1000 has enough brightness for your tastes..........I've seen the Sony HW50 and the image it throws is nowhere near the quality nor brightness of 1000ES.......but then again, you are looking at more than 6-7 times the price.
I just posted in my build thread stating the same........................
I am very happy with 2D on my 120" diagonal 2.35:1 screen, in-fact, the picture is stunning and this is without a anamorphic lens, just zoomed only.
When I run 3D it is usually 16:9 so this makes a 96" diagonal image. To me the image is not bright enough, getting close but still not there.
Just read a ouple of reviews on the 1000 and the authors still complained about the lack of brightness in 3D. If the 1000 is going to be an option
I will have to know that it will do the job.
Next option is $30,000 but it is a light canon that can double the 1000 's lumen output. The HighLite Cine 330-3D-HC has three 330 watt bulbs
and triple DLP. No lens memory, 1080 though . 1080 is ok, no lens memory means having to physically adjust and would likely need anamorphic.Edited by roxiedog13 - 9/10/13 at 5:30am
