Of the four leading manufacturers of DLP front projectors BenQ obviously remains the only one that doesn't consider FI as an important feature.
Acer (AcuMotion), Optoma (PureMotion) and Vivitek (VividMotion) feature FI (even for their UHD front projectors) but BenQ remains stubborn and withholds this feature.
Wake me up again, once BenQ implements good FI in its front projectors.
1080p projectors don't need FI nearly as badly as UHD ones do, because it's easy to rip 1080p content to your HTPC and do the FI from there.
If I could do this with UHD Blurays I wouldn't pay 500 bucks more for FI. Convenience is good but not when it adds multiple frames of latency (UHD65 vs UHD60 for example) or a lot of $$.
I would definitely rate a 2500:1 native CR way higher than FI on a 1080p DLP, in the list of desirability, for sure.
But the noise on these...ugh. Plus, there are 1080p DLPs coming out with HDR10 support and UHD downscaling (making 2160p 420 video equal 1080p 444, plus compression artifacts are 1/2 of the size, i.e. blended away). 1080p DLP with lasers, WCG, HDR10, HDCP 2.2, laser dimming, low lag, 2500:1 native and way more dynamic, and of course HDMI 2.0 means 1080p120 in 444 (including with HDR). And even 1080p60 frame sequential 3D. Possibly even 1080p72 (for native 144hz). Actually I believe the bandwidth for 1080p144 in 10-bit in 444 is there with HDMI 2.0.
2160p60 = 1080p240 in terms of bandwidth. Take off 20% for 10-bit, you're left with 192hz. So 192hz in HDR10 2D, or 96hz per eye 3D, also in HDR10. All possible with 18gbps at 1080p.
