Epson 5050\6050 Rumors?

And people who prefer DLP projectors over LCOS etc are ones who favor sharpness over all else. So I just don't see the technologies as comparable at any price point. DLP is normally used by those with entry-level budgets and limited experience. I don't know one serious Home Theater enthusiast who uses a DLP projector in a dedicated on theater room. No use in treating a room with dark colors, dark ceiling, dark floors etc and pair it with a projector that is incapable of anything over 1500:1 native contrast.
So what do you say to someone like myself? Someone who knows what fantastic contrast and deep, inky blacks look like and still chooses DLP? I don’t fit into your “limited experience” category and last time I checked I was a pretty serious enthusiast.
Here’s the thing: everyone has different priorities. One of my priorities is fluid motion handling. Unfortunately for me I never warmed to sample and hold style displays. I jumped from CRT straight to plasma/DLP rear projection and then to DLP front projection. I never had a chance to get used to LCD blur and, in my opinion, overdriving an LCD display to eliminate the blur only makes the motion uglier (though it does have gaming advantages). This means that, for me, all LCD based tech including 3LCD and LCOS starts to have issues once you actually have motion on screen. It’s a curse and one I wish I could let go of. But you don’t see me going around claiming all LCD displays are useless just because I have an issue with sample and hold. I understand that different people have different priorities and different ideas of what does and doesn’t look good.
So what you’re doing is making broad, sweeping statements that sound like facts but are, in reality, your opinions. Honestly, the only posts I ever see from you are in threads trashing whatever projector that thread happens to be about. You trash DLP and you trash every single 3LCD that isn’t the 5040ub. Considering that this is the under $3000 sub forum where 95% of the selection is DLP and non-UB 3LCD I’m beginning to wonder what it is exactly you’re hoping to prove? That everyone just needs to spend more money? Or maybe that everyone should just settle for a projector that isn’t 4K? If all you want to do is get your opinion out there that every under $3000 projector outside the 5040ub is garbage then, I’m happy to tell you, your message has been received loud and... repeatedly.
What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
