Any updates on the Infocus HT projector? - Page 2

The way I see it, I have nothing to lose by buying an LP340 now. I can always sell it later. At least if the HT projector is delayed, I'll have something to use while waiting.

Walter,

I've got the Boxlight CD-455m which is the exact same thing as the LP340. I am very satisfied with the performance so far. I have a smaller screen than most because of the size of my room - only 84". I bought the projector back in October and it produces a great picture using a low end DVD player. The new InFocus models look awesome and I'm planning on doing the same thing as you. Use what I have for now, sell on Ebay later and grab the latest and greatest. I picked up the 455 for $2800 from Studio Experience. I can hook you up with the salesman I worked with who was outstanding and also recommended the screen I've got. PM me if you need any info.

Does anyone know of a forum member who also sells Infocus projectors? Checked AVScience, they don't sell Infocus projectors, sure wish they did.

Contact Hank at Studio Experience. He's knowledgable and there are at least 5-6 members of this forum who've purchased the Infocus/Boxlight projector from him and been completely satisfied. I actually got one with a factory defect. I fedexed it back to them and they had a new one out to me the same day. All they wanted was the tracking number for my return package.

hank@studioexperience.com

I don't have their phone number handy...

Does he know the usual problems of the Infocus LP340? I need someone who's aware of the common problems (light leakage, bulb counter, etc.) of this projector that way I can have him check the unit before shipping it to me. I live outside U.S. and shipping it back costs a lot. Thanks.

Anyone else please?

Walter,

They do a fairly thorough test of the projector. They check all of the pixels to make sure none of them are "off". They burn it in for 5 or 10 hours I think. Hank would be able to answer these questions better than I could. The factory defect I spoke of was indeed the reported light leakage problem. They had received a shipment of replacement units after I ordered my projector. When I realized I had one of the earlier models with the problem I asked them to replace it, which they did as I described.

Looks like the problem just got more complicated. The new LP340s will not have the Home Theater quality video chip anymore. Help. Buy LP340 now or wait for Infocus HT?

Are those equivalent choices? Chances are the infocus HT is going to cost quite a bit more.

Well, actually, I'm guessing so don't take my word for it. But it is something to consider.

It's okay if it will cost a BIT more as long as they did something about the light halo and white segment of the color wheel.

I thought I read somewhere on this forum that the white segment of the LP350/340 series is automatically turned off when using the s-video. I'm not sure but I think it was Wigggles that mentioned it.

Aside from the theoretical advantages of the HT projectors over the business projectors, can anyone clarify how much of an improvement would actually be observed and in what characteristics?

I have had an LP350 for about 6 months now, and the picture is very good. I still don't know what people mean when they refer to the rainbow effect. The only problem that I occasionally see in the picture is what seems to be motion artifacts associated with camera pans or rapid motion (e.g., the German battle scene in Gladiator). I assume that most of what I regard as artifacts here are on the DVD itself.

Hi,

any news on the Infocus HT series?
http://www.loehneysen.de/ces2001/ces3.html

The last picture on this site shows the CES prototype with its separate docking station, including Faroujda video-electronics.

Best regards, Walter
