They do have ONE big thing in common and that’s that both of them offer filters to enable DCI-P3 color reproduction. So maybe PJC can use that as an excuse.
Pricing in the US is unbeatable.
Outside we have:
Epson TW9400 (5050UB) $3k (2.5k on sale)
Epson TW9300 (5040UB) 3k ( (2.5k on sale)
Benq W2700 (HT3550) 2k
Benq 1110 (HT2050a) 1k
Cheapest JVC RS440 4k
This seems like a very solid entry from Benq, but do you think the pricing would come down still for the HT3550?
1/2.I believe HDR mode enables/disables itself automatically when it detects an HDR signal.
2. Not sure if this has 10gb or 18gb:
HDMI 2.0a specifications: https://www.google.com/search?q=hdmi...65a3GyrVEYQnM:
3. Only Lens Shift Vertical 100%~110%
4.TI is Texas Instruments, the DLP chip that is being used.[/QUOTE]
I sincerely doubt it. Only because, honestly, The price is already so aggressive. Eventually, maybe, but I don’t anticipate that happening soon. The most direct competitor for the HT3550 is going to be the Optoma UHD51a and UHD51alv at $1700. That projector adds Alexa but lacks the HT3550’s iris, the DCI P3 filter, and the new tone mapping. It also uses the old DMd with the light border.
Only time (and comparisons) will tell but at it’s price the BenQ is going to be tough to beat. Another thing to consider is in Europe you guys will get a lower priced 4K RGBRGB in the form of the new W1720. So BenQ will ah e a lower priced alternative for those not wanting to spend as much.
