Same as the UB9000... they are luxury goods... you don't buy them for their real value, but for the perceived value... and to impress other people...
Sorry, but I didn't buy my UB9000 to impress other people. I think you are generalizing way too much here. I bought it for the added tone mapping setting(s) for my projector and because I was giving my UB820 to my Son with the JVC x750 that I was giving him.
