As of today (12/4/13), the 55ES is selling for $3999 and the 50ES is selling for $2999. This is my very first projector. My question is., Is the $1,000 bump worth it to buy 55 instead of 50?
I am sure when content builds up for 4k in 3-5 years, I would trade in either to get on to 4k.
Pl share your experience!
PS - The $1,000 price bump is not an issue (I just want to know if it's worth it)
It is allmost the same projector - AFAIK : the 55 is a 50, but is 3D RF ready with ext RF transmitter and optional TDG-BT500A glasses + ready for optional HDMI wireless + a new bulb with longer life time ( 3000 versus 5000 ) and from what I hear
, it has a Little less light, but WHO knows,EDIT: the spec say´s its the same for both projectors ( 1700 )
, I would probely take the 50, save the 1000 bucks, especially if you plan to buy a 4K projector in a few years ( 3- 5 years )
bottom line is, you will probely be impressed with both, considered its your first
