Today I at last did get to see a 500ES in action , and with the "puck" on it ( sorry Mark, I know you said its only the 600/1100
and I did also only
see some 4K clips
from it ) - sadly I had only about one hour to look at it, so I didnt have time to see or test the 3D ( damn ! ).
The tablet was nice, especially if you get it in the bargain
The "4K" native looked very good and the RC is significantly less aggressive / more fine-grained in adjustment with UHD signals ( 3840x2160 24P ) ( didnt get time to test in 2K )
Only pulse mode is available in UHD ( dung )
The convergence was stabil and looked okay after 10-20 min.
In high lamp, its make some audible noise, if you are close to it ( not a problem IMO - but audible - allmost like the 1000ES, when you put that in high lamp and "high altitude" mode ) - on low, it was very silent - like the 1000ES in high lamp mode ( but NOT "high altitude" on ).
Its small and cute
( compared to the 1000 ) - a very nice and practical size.
but strangely enough, it worked a little more "plastic-like" than 1000éren, despite both cabinets are built in plastic (?)
The sharpness / focus is absolutly NOT in the same level as the 1000, the White letters in the menu had foggy areas around the letters / "defocused edges", who couldnt get adjusted away - the 1000 is quite sharp and there is no fog around the white letters there - that must be the better lense. ( Z10K - do you not see that in your 600 versus 1000 ? ) - but not a problem in a "normal" Picture on sitting distance
Didnt see any CA on it.
Just a quick first impression of the 500ES versus the 1000ES
