I'm in complete agreement. Casio really doesn't have very good image quality overall, with weak colors, and I don't know if you likely have anywhere near 1080p. More likely 720p resolution (maybe). But, if you are happy, then that is a BIG factor in where you are.
Where you want to be is the other big factor.
If you love home theater and have darker walls and ceiling, or are heading that direction, then I would head that direction first, and get a really good projector once you are there. If you are pretty stagnant with your setup and don't intend to do much to your 'typical' family room/basement setup that you use without lights on, but have light walls and the rest, then maybe just go for a 1080p model like the BenQ HT2050A and really make the room pop and enjoyable for the next 5-7 years or so. No rush to get into 4K in a weak room, and plenty of love for 1080p to enjoy from all sources these days.
Waiting is always fine, as technology always seems to improve and pricing always seems to drop, but DLP is the king of cheap and their pixel shifting 4K solution is going to be 'standard' for the foreseeable future. Epson's pixel shifting doesn't look like it's getting an upgrade either. So, that leaves Sony and JVC in the true native 4K arena, and they ain't cheap. They aren't really headed towards cheap yet either. If we see a $3,000 Sony, that may shock the market a fair bit, but will likely be several years out yet.
