There is no way the input lag is any better than any of the other 4K models. This seems to be a problem with the XPR chipset not being able to work nearly as quickly as the 1080p chip sets do. 4K and serious gaming is a huge fail with DLP this go around. I would bet TI will address this at some point.... .... .... maybe.
This projector seems like it could be such a huge win, but the fan noise just completely kills it. I can't believe they would bother to release this without rethinking the entire cooling system. Make it an inch taller and put a large 120mm fan on the top to really move air and to cut the noise level by 10dB. Put a high quality fan in there that makes almost no noise. I can't even image how exciting this model really could be if the fan noise was nearly non-existent. How many people would be stoked to get a nearly silent LED projector with 4K for about $1,000.
But, nobody wants a noise factory. NOBODY!
They really want to want this, AAXA has shot themselves in the foot with the 4K1 and the excessive noise levels.
Obviously the 'user' picture settings that don't show you what you are changing was a huge mistake as well. But, this may be a limitation of a cheaper chip set in place and may not easily be corrected. The noise level is all on AAXA and their design. Trying to go as small as possible, then engineering a cruddy design and releasing it without anyone telling them it was unacceptable and would KILL sales.
Congratulation on making a product that everyone wants, but nobody will buy because of what you did to it AAXA.
