I've contacted Optoma Germany on Facebook and asked if they have any news.
The only reply was :"There will be intresting news at the beginning of October."

P1 disappeared from Amazon, perhaps date got pushed, but it's odd that they would remove the listing entirely:

Maybe they are trying to upgrade the P1 to the EU version without creating all this mess? 🙄

While all of us are waiting for the Optima P1 to launch, I found something very, very interesting and I thought I would share with you all. Go to google and type Optoma P1 Cinemax and do a search. Then click on the 2nd link for Optoma’s P1 site. There are two links to their website, and the websites are slightly different—— only one has this picture and it’s the 2nd link.
Scroll down until you see the picture of the Optoma P1 surrounded by golden picture frames. Now look at the picture frame on the top left. It says: 2019, 12/12, December, Thursday. Could this be a new, later launch date??? The 12th of December 2019, is indeed a Thursday. And now look at the picture frame on the top right: It says 15 degrees. This would point towards winter weather (if interpreted as Fahrenheit).

Thought this post might stir up some conversation and investigation as we all wait for this amazing projector to be released. Thoughts everyone?

I think it's just an example of the "InfoWall-Art Gallery Collection" with a random date. That sure would be a bummer though.

Not sure if this is helpful or dated... but received this last week from ProjectorScreen.com as I ordered mine from them in early September:


I wanted to let you know that we received an update from Optoma regarding the expected shipping date. Optoma is expecting to start shipping now on September 24th, about a week later than previously anticipated.
Optoma is also running a promotion where they will reward the first 200 people to leave a review for the P1 on their website with a $200 prepaid Visa Gift Card. Once they publish the form, we will send an updated email so that you can submit your review and hopefully win.
Since you had placed your order with us, you will be among the first in the country to receive your projectors and should have an advantage over many other people whom had purchased elsewhere.
We believe that Optoma has pushed the release date back to complete firmware updates on all units prior to shipping to ensure that all customers have fantastic experience, right out of the box and will leave them the positive reviews that they seek.

The price you quote on the Epson might be wrong along with the release date -
https://www.richersounds.com/tv-proj...00b-black.html


In answer to the comment below - I was trying to show people fixated only on the P1, some of the potential competition. I was also looking at purchasing the P1 and thought it had no real competition - I'm glad to be proven wrong, it seems the UST space is filling up and from name brands. Also it is most definetly a UST.

Wow, that's a stretch of a conspiracy theory 😛. One was the preview / teaser page, the other is the actual product page. My team worked on both of those pages. The product page has the specs and datasheet available for download, the teaser does not. Theree is no delay until December.

ProjectionHead, any chance you can share if the P1's remote is IR or something else? I want to make sure it plays nicely with my Harmony. Thanks!

On the data sheet it lists it as Bluetooth. "Bluetooth smart home remote with Airmouse (rechargeable)"

Well spotted, thanks! Hopefully Logitech adds support for the P1.

**Update**
P1s are expected to leave Optoma tomorrow to select dealers. Optoma has sold out and you should expect that most resellers will sell out very quickly, if they have not already.
We are looking at a potential 5 week lead time before more units hit the states.
If your dealer still has units available (and confirmed on the way from Optoma) I would strongly suggest placing that order ASAP if you don't want to wait for the next wave.

Honestly, I'm surprised Amazon hasn't already sold out of these. If you have pre-orered from them, please keep us up to date if they are still expected to be shipping out next week or if they are turning orders into "backordered" status. If backordered it could be at least another 5 weeks before the next batch arrives in the USA.

Any chance the (assumed) moratorium ends prior to release?
