them closer together). My point is DLP isn't just for the low end.
No I haven't, and I don't mention them for that very reason
and in short I don't, I have no basis to make any such conclusion.
I also don't think these and my LCOS projector are anywhere near the same budget line.
Does Sim2\Runco sell DLP's with 1500 lumens or more in the <4k$ market ?
I honestly don't know.
The simple fact
is I can't afford a Sim2 or Runco projector at 20k$, all common sense considered I shouldn't have spent the money on the HW50 either (And I got mine used).
You might just as well be asking me why I would ever consider buying a Ford estate car when the lamborghini Gallardo exist...
I'm not even considering myself much of an 'AV-phile' I just want a good all purpose entertainment projector with low fan noise, the Sony simply checked the largest amount of boxes.
Neither do I have absolute 100% light control so I would probably not see much of any difference between the Sony or JVC in regards to the black levels which pretty much was the only other brand easily available in Norway.
My choice doesn't say the JVC (or any other) is a bad projector just because I decided on the Sony.
I think It comes through quite clearly that I'm was not comparing a 4k$ LCOS with the upper 10k$++ DLP's but the cheaper ones with bottom of the line optics and high noise levels and lots of light leakage. And now with the LCOS I could host for my DLP sensitive friends, without having to mix migraine medication in the popcorn.
And quite frankly, why would the fact that I like my LCOS be so disturbing to you ?
