There is a previous discussion here about 0.47 vs. 0.66 (see the last several posts). There is also more details in this other thread:
The 0.66 chips do produce better/smaller/sharper pixels than the 0.47. The issue is if users will see this at typical viewing distances.
The conclusion from this:
is that black level becomes a more dominant feature.
It is unclear why there aren't any USA reviews yet. I've been watching Projector Central waiting for theirs. Their previous comment indicated that they should have had an HU80KA for several weeks now.
I'm looking at the UHZ65 also. There are 3 issues I'm tracking before I make a decision about which projector to buy:
- black level
- 0.47 vs 0.66
- user firmware updates (instead of shipping it back)
Since 4K HDR is still in-flux, this last point seems to be very important; and certainly is to me. I'm not willing to ship a projector back (risk of damage in shipment) for something as simple as a firmware update. The various other faux-K threads are filled with firmware issues (Viewsonic px727, Acer VL7860, Vivitek HK2288, BenQ HT2550, Optoma UHZ65).
The HU80KA appears to be one projector that has user-upgradable firmware. Due to the laser, black level should be "good". And 0.47 vs. 0.66 may or may not be an issue depending on my screen size and viewing distance (see previous posts and graph in this thread).
