Hisense 100L7T TRIPLE LASER UST @ CES 2019

Not sure why this wasn't posted, but to me this is THE HOTTEST news from this years CES!

Quote:
The Hisense booth proudly displays the 4K Smart TriChroma™ Laser TV (100L7T), the latest addition to the award-winning series that uses the foundational elements of color - red, blue and green. The outcome is a near-infinite array of colors, including Pure White. The TriChroma Laser TV has an X-Fusion Laser Light Engine™ that combines three independent lasers to accurately display a wide array of colors and hues, reaching 96.6% of the rec.2020 color space. A TI DLP® chip enables blazing fast motion speeds with a 32 micro-second refresh rate for 8.3 million pixels, creating an unrivaled viewing experience that must be seen to believe.
  • Triple lasers (RGB)
  • 96.6% REC2020!!!!!! 😮
  • 4K
  • UST

No word on lumen output, but IIRC, their dual laser model pumps out upwards of 3500 lumens so I'm sure this will be bright.


Guesstimated retail to be about $16K and it's supposed to drop in the fall of 2019 (Q4).

It’s really interesting to me that they can get nearly a 100% rec2020. I’m really surprised by this considering that it’s a single chip dlp projector. 3 chip LCOS designs can’t do it and they don’t have the disadvantage of having to produce colors sequentially.

But here’s the bad news. It’s lens system only allows a max of a 100”. At around 16,000 dollars MSRP, it just not worth it. You can get an 85” QLED TV for much less cost that will have MUCH better contrast and picture. If Hisense didn’t neuter the screen size it might might no be such nonsense (get it ). Seriously, why? They already have a duel laser version that can do 120”.

It's not the DLP mirror array (chip) that produces the color, it's either a color wheel, LED or laser producing the color, this one has one laser for each color so it doesn't need a color limiting color wheel and therefore can produce a much wider color space. Most of the 3 chip LCOS are bulb based (read limit color space) and the ones based on lasers are older and may not have had the REC2020 color space in mind when designing them.

As far as sizing on this new triple laser model, I've read up to 120" on some of the press releases, do you have a definitive source that its limited to 100"? They offer a 120" option on their dual laser PJ, not sure why this one would be limited to 100" and even at 100" you're getting almost 40% more picture over an 85" set! That's huge and definitely more immersive.

But LG doesn't currently offer an 85" OLED, they have the 77" current model and a 88" 8K model on the horizon which I guarantee will cost more than this Hisense UST by a long shot!

From tomsguide.com:

When it comes to big screens, 4K TVs have gotten less expensive, but anything approaching the Laser TV's 100 inches will still cost you a lot of money, into the tens of thousands of dollars. But a good projector can handle larger sizes with ease, and the Hisense 100L7T can project onto a screen 120-inches in size, and does so from only 7 inches away.

Regardless of color source a single chip dmd can still only show on color at a time. So it is a disadvantage vs a 3chip design.

You can’t get a 100” lcd or 85” oled for less. But you can get an 85” 4k lcd tv. Even lcd has much better contrast and brightness than most projectors.

How do you neuter/limit the projected size? You simply pull the projector back further and you get a larger image, right? Are they saying it turns to garbage larger than 100"?

Probably has focus issues and barrel distortion. If it didn’t they would have named it 120L7T instead of 100L7T. This was the case last year between their 120L10E and 100L10E models.

The numeration only indicated the size of the screen that was included in the package not necessarily the limitations of the physical projector.

Ok, that would make sense. They probably all share the same lens system. Still, if you wanted a 120” screen you’d be forced to buy this package with the 100” screen and then buy a 120” screen separately which would make the total cost go from really expensive to outrageously expensive. I personally think they should have included a 120” option at the price they are asking. Unless your Jeff Bezos or Warren Buffet it’s not worth it for a 100” size. Moving your seating a few feet closer to an 85” would have a better result likely, and cost about a third of the price.

But like I said earlier, I have to admit it’s pretty remarkable that Hisense is able to beat the big guys like Sony/JVC at color gamut.

They also sell the PJ without the screen from what I understand.

Yeah, good for them and one of the first with an affordable 3 laser system.

I don't know if you follow the UHZ65 thread lately but there is a third party vendor/retailer who collaborated with Optoma to introduce a color filter to that projector that lets it do 80% of REC2020 at the expense of about 500 lumens in brightness, so I guess we're getting there.

I remember a rep stated that they only sell the projector bundled. That rep might have been mistaken or their policy could have changed, idk

NEWS FLASH!

Also was discovered that in the event that one of the lasers should die out, Hisense will replace the diode (at a nominal fee I'm sure)!!! 😱🤘

Per Kevin Cahill, Hisense Director of Sales & Marketing in a YouTube interview from non other than AVS Forum!!! Check out the video here.

First time I've heard that directly from a manufacturer, so many claims online that the laser can't be replaced just got blown to oblivion!

Only laser projector that I remember saying can't be replaced was the Epson LS models and that was only because they placed it so that you had to take the whole projector apart to get to it. The JVC and Sony projectors can have laser replaced. The only issue is just how expensive it is to do so. I know on the JVC projector, it is not like replacing a lamp. It has to be performed on a factory jig and the laser has to be shaded to get it set up correctly. Because of this, we know it would be expensive. The nice thing on the JVC is it has some redundancy built in (laser blocks), so it does not lose brightness if some fail. If Hisense has made it so that it is easily replaceable, that would be great, but I would ask cost first.

Watch the video again. They talk about last year's models being dual laser and this new one being three lasers (RGB).

Yeah, even if the person made the mistake of mentioning dual laser, the "official announcement" from the manufacturer (which is above) states triple laser. It's triple laser....

No, not a mistake. The guy starts off talking about their current models that are dual laser and then introduces the new model coming out and clearly talks about it being RGB, three laser system.

I wouldn't buy any Hisense product without first double checking the quality and extent of their costumer support outside of China.

I don't know if you realize but Hisense has a US division and has been selling products here in the states for many years now including at Best Buy and on Amazon so you don't have to worry about product support because it's fully warrantied for the US.

I don't think everyone understands this! Hence the reason for my excitement🤩 Even at 16K, I think that's a relative bargain especially for UST with included screen. If they can get the HDR right with those 3500 lumens, I think you'd be set until 8K actually settles in in about 10 years.

For $15.000 I wouldn't take any risks. Even for a third of that price I would accept nothing but excellent costumer service. I don't doubt that their products are fully warrantied under US law. I was talking about costumer support, which as we've all seen should be much more than fulfilling a warranty.

Not yet. Third or fourth quarter is what I was told.

Has this product come out yet...kinda interested in the 3 laser deal.
Just curious, are you interested in this as a replacement for the Sony projector you have or as a companion? This projector is an UST (Ultra Short Throw) that sits in front of the screen and has an absolute limit of 120" on screen size. I'm not sure how big your screen is now but if it's bigger than 120", you'll have to downgrade for this Hisense unit.

Troy,
I may replace the Sony....if the picture image and the tech improvements can be proven. I don’t mind it being UST. The 120 inch limit is not a factor for me. The form factor along with high quality results is intriguing.

Any hands on reviews out yet? Could this actually compete with the 88" 8K OLED?

Not out yet and image quality wise, can't come close to competing against the 8K OLED. For the same reason all the other DLP's can't compete, low contrast.

Any recent news on this projector?

I may replace my Dell 4K UST projector with this one. It is August 2019 already. No news on its availability yet. :-(
