For a regular blu ray or hd dvd i click theatre mode, which switches motionflow off. I find motionflow distracting for films. I would highly recommended throwing in the cars and rat bd's and jacking up motionflow high. Does the vw200 have the theartre mode button, and does it turn motionflow off. I would assume that they used similiar techniques for the XBr 4,5 and the vw200. I have heard from people on forums that 1080/24 is pointless unless it is done as 5:5, i still always feed my xbr4 1080/24 anyway IMO it is much better. Can't wait to hear more reports on this pj, i am looking into redoing the basement and am seriously considering this projector. Is the upgrade worth the price. What would the best pj for around 10,000 be?
Mosman I cannot comment if the motionflow in the 200 is the same as in the XBRs. I am not familiar with their other sets to be able to compare or coment. We have a choice of high low or off & I did try it with 24hz material. Low produced some artifacts but high worked fine. I prefer it off for film source. I have not done much viewing of HDTV 60hz yet.
Is this worth the upgrade for you? I would wait for more reports as the roll out moves forward. This machine and 3 chip DLP will cost you a little more then your mentioned price. 3 chip DLP will obviously offer superior ANSI contrast and brightness and will light up a larger screen. The Sony will give superior on/off contrast but your preference may find it limited to smaller screen sizes unless using a high gain screen. If you are a die hard film buff and have previously lived with a CRT this is your dream machine. I love the Film mode. Playing Quentin Tarantinos "Grindhouse " in HD with all the film scratches and splices using Film mode results in shutter flicker, for myself that is true film reproduction in the home

Everything is there in the service menu but it is laid out a little different and works different. It will take a little time to decipher. At this point the projector is plenty bright. Im using a 1.3 gain screen, 8 feet wide. At some point I am sure someone will visit this topic. At 16k retail Im not taking the risk just yet, no need

So the question for Alan is this: Sony VW200 or Sim CX3 1080. ?
There is no one answer. I truly love both & wish we could take the things we like from both technologies and combine them into one. I can only say which ever choice you make both perform to their expectations
