That will be sometime in not so near future, methinks.
On another note, I went ahead and upgraded my order request from X550 (RS400) to X750 (RS500). Of course the wife doesn't know, and I hope she never knows that I stole her money. But thanks to all forum friends for making me decide. By the way, I was receiving a bit different opinion on the RS400 forum. True 4k projectors are imminent and brightness/contrast numbers not up to snuff for HDR etc. As I thought about it deeper, I feel a full 4k next gen JVC projector would not sway me to upgrade, as for my eyes the difference will be minimal. Now if I was watching the movie in a big 20 ft screen, yes the upgrade to 4k over eshift would make sense.
I could not get over the fact that I am getting a free lamp with the X750 purchase. So there goes a mid cycle contrast refresh for me.
Now that the damage to my wife's pocketbook is done, thank you once again.
But there is something that doesn't feel right, and I feel I should say something about some recent emotions on this thread. Partly because, I feel the outbursts happened as a result of my questions, and people differed on how generous should one be on this forum, at the cost of spilling over or flooding, or hijacking the forum topic. Guys, I appreciate all the assistance, and it is quite apparent that you truly have helped me in my decision, irrespective of how you penned it.
I just want that the recent hurt across this thread is undone and the personal ignore list be revisited. Shall we?
