Has anyone got a Sony 1252

What do you think of the picture quality compared to a 1272?

Are you using a doubler if so what type?



I am finding really hard ot deside on either a 1252 or 1272 I can get a 1252 really easy but finding a 1272 here in Australia if pretty hard at a good price.


I can get a 1252 with 670 hours on it ans very very very clean for $2300 AUD

The best i can hope for with a 1272 is around 1000 to 1500 hours for around the $4500 to $5000 AUD.


Either one i will be using a Quadscan Elite tripled and will only be used for DVD's


Which way do you suggest i go

The main diffrence between the uniots are...



1272 has a higher scan rate, but if just using a doubler either will perform excellent.

1272 has a 21 points of convergance vs the 9 in the 1252 ( although for $250 you can upgrade the 1252 to a 1272 21 pt convergance ).


Either can handle tripled DVD and either will be stunning. The 1272 just has more headroom on the signal that it can accept and more flexability to get convergance just right.

By upgrading the 1252 will you get the extra bandwidth that you get on the 1272 as well as the 21 point convergence

if you are using a screen not more than 100 diagonal 16:"9, then the 1252 with direct progressive in is fantastic and can rival the best out there. But you do need a dvdo or decoder board to convert the progressive signal to RGBHV, the 1252 or 1272 cannot accept direct progressive in.

Just a clarification...


the sony accepts RGBVH, but not component. Just make sure your line doubler can output RGB and you are set. It accepts RGB sync on green and composite sync as well as normal RGBVH.

The better picture will be dictated by which projector is in better condition / lower hours. The scan rate is really a moot point, although the 21 pt convergence would be nice but not required if you do a really good job of converging.
