I talked to the national sales manager for the US the other day. They are still on track with initial units expected to ship out around the end of November. I have a preliminary spec sheet on the unit. If anyone is interested, please email me and I can send it to you.
Depends on how honest and how nuetral the lumens are.
For those who don't think 700-900 lumens are enough, try the Dalite high power. Trust me when I say that it doesn't hot spot at all despite its 2.8 gain rating.
Also, for a 220 NSH or UHP, I don't think any HT DLP will ever achieve more than 1500 honest lumens until the Archimedes (spelling) color wheel comes out in a couple of years which might push things up to 2000 lumens.
If you have to have more than that amount of light, some form of LCD is the only way to go.
That was one of the big problems with the HT250 - although the MSRP was $12k many people said it still needed an external scaler. If true I find that totally unacceptable for that price. Let's hope the HT300 will truly be a one box solution, although a very expensive one. Reed.
