Anyone know anything about the new NEC DLP Dark Chip 3 projector about to be released?
Murray, this is the 3rd thread you've opened along very similar lines, usually one will do!
Jeez, I'm sounding like a mod.
Thanks so much pjtx100 for being such a friendly and welcoming member. Its a shame you didn't take the time to read the threads properly, as then you would realise each question is completely different. I noticed you didn't have any answers to any of my questions on new technology! Very interesting indeed
Well, they all mention Dark Chip in the title and Dark Chip 3 in the content. It could be argued that they are different aspects of the same technology.
But that's not the point. The point is that I was in no way rude, yet you have chosen to take great exception to an innocuous comment. You have even PM'd me to further make your point!
I'll let others judge who is the more unfriendly.
Where did you see the mention of this? Got a link or something? If it's true, it's been a long time coming!
Hi Gary thanks for your interest in the new NEC. I was told about it from the importer in NZ yesterday but they didnt have any specs yet. I have an overseas phone number which I will make contact today and keep you posted. Ive been told this dark chip 3 will be much more affordable. Also just been told another new dark chip 3 from Benq PE8720 ready for realease June/July, 5500 contrast ratio. We really are seeing the beginnings of new things to arrive I think
They both sound promising - I wonder what that CR will be in reality though? Still double what some are claiming before being set for video use, so maybe a true 4000:1 is on the cards. Can't wait to see them in the flesh so to speak. Keep us informed if you find out anything.
