Very exciting!


A little birdy told me it is a model at the bodem end of the range, a new entry level projector, the HW40


Expected specifications against the HW55 are: no Reality Creation, no Frame interpolation, lower contrast and a price of €2199 which is about $3000

The actual specs are not known though.

Until we get a hands on review it look identical to the 55es less an iris, 3D glasses and some missing calibration capabilities.

All for under an estimated under $2,500!

Throw a Lumagen Mini on this and you'd have a killer setup for roughly the same cost as the 55es

People who don't like dynamic iris perhaps.
Wouldn't those people gravitate to the Epson LCD projectors which have better contrast ratios (with the dynamic iris off) at a similar price?

It will be in accordance to European Price if it's really the case.



Edit : I just checked it, you're right. So this topic is in the wrong section of this forum.
