I don’t get why this isn’t getting a lot of attention; UST has so many advantages, not least of which is higher reflected output. The only deficiency for me is the lack of HDR, which will surely come in the step-up model.

Lack of HDR as you mention and 1080P; everyone's gun ho about 4K. If this had been released just a year or two it probably would have received a lot of attention. I'm still interested in it as a daytime TV depending on what the street price is.

I thought for HDTV it looked good. $ 2999.00 isn't bad price wise.

So how is it they can put a 4000lm laser light engine in a $3k projector, but their 1080p non-UST model is several times the price and not as bright?

Would love to know how this compares in native contrast and overall image vs say a 5040.
I'm very interested. I like the design.

I have no 4K content but if this can give me a better 1080p image than say 5040 i will get one.

Laser is a big plus and i think price is decent. I dont care for HDR and have no real 4K content at present.

Question is....

Input lag for gaming any good? Epsons other lasers have had poor input lag or had to use gaming mode which degraded image.
Motion? If Motion and over all smoothness is great as people described the LS1000/15000 models the thats great.
Native contrast? Lumen numbers look on paper but if in a light controlled room the blacks are worse than a 5040 then im out.

Hope to read more on this soon. If this laser projector hits the trinity of Motion/Contrast/input lag i may grab one to last me few years.

Did motion and image calmness seem good like Epsons LS series?

Really wish more information was available on how this performs in a fully light controlled room.

* Rough idea of native contrast? Are we talking low like DLP or closer to 5040?
* Motion any good? Does it have FI support and is it done well.
*Does the design produce any image artifacts due to way the image is projected?
* Has game colour mode but is the input lag low without sacrificing image quality. I know the Other laser Epsons image degrades if using the low input game mode, otherwise input lag is too high.

Very hard to say - I only saw it a couple of times at Cedia.
