Had one of those myself back in the day. But the JVC and Sony's are now miles ahead of the old CRTs for just about every attribute, including black levels and just above black.I yearn for the black levels I had on my old Barco BG808 CRT (however, the W1070 is actually far quieter in comparison)
Looking at RRP pricing there are no Optoma models cheaper that I could see with the same features. Some retailers are discounting so I have changed the wording slightly to reflect that. But as far as I am concerned it is accurate.Say what? There are a few optoma models available for less. Please update your review for accuracy
Good to know, but I'll need a mammoth ebay-a-thon to save up my pennies for a JVC or Sony. Although, I'm not too fussed about UHD, so could probably grab a second hand bargain HD model.Had one of those myself back in the day.

You will find at around the same price the mid-range 1080p projectors will give you a better picture, they are what you say more or less budget projectors accepting a 4k source.When neither the colour space nor the dynamic range are good enough to beat Rec. 709, I do find myself wondering - is this really worth approximately twice the price of Benq's W2000? It'll actually display a 4k source, so there's that, but is much, if anything, going to be gained over just playing the Blu-ray disc (which is mastered with this sort of display's limitations in mind) through a standard HD projector of similar price?
Not that I've got either projector so I can't answer from experience, sadly.
And your qualifications and evidence for that are?no idea why anyone would use star trek discovery on a test as it looks dog sh*t on any platform. everything about the picture is messed up
I had mine fixed and it played Star Wars all the way through (Force Awakens) in 3D using Benq Glasses without missing a heartbeat. But in the end it went back.There are reports all over the place of the HT2550 losing 3D sync after a few minutes, requiring a factory firmware upgrade to fix, so it's a real shame that 3D couldn't be tested here...
