Watched this at avsforum.com, and I found it pretty uninsightful. They didn't even mention if it could accept a 4K signal (which is possible with a computer, and content is actually plentiful with computer video games can accept this resolution). Basically they said this is a 2K projector with a 4K chip from what I watched. Most of the people that were impressed with the projector had to do with the higher quality optics and better light engine, being a high end build, not at all from the resolution or the scaling. It also was a pretty unfair comparison using the VW30 for the "4K vs 3D" argument, since that projector is a mid-end model with factory built parts. Of course this is done to up-sell the 4K vw1000.

For something you found uninsightful you certainly had a lot of insight into it.

I'll take that as a compliment.

I just think they are simply trying to up sell a high end device in the otherwise high end market. Of course higher end machines (like the VW1000) are going to outperform projectors like their much lower end VW30. The video's purpose is to be a "4K vs 3D" argument, comparing two forms that are ultimately meant to achieve for different purposes (4K is resolution, 3D is stereoscopic vision, both can work together), but they try to sell the high end machine out as if 4k is simply "better". There was a guy in the video that complained there was no 4K video (I respect that), but also complained about DVD upconversion?

I know this projector is meant for people with the cash, but the point of the device is to display 4K content, and they talk more about how great it is (and I bet it is), but hardly anything about the device, nor anything at all. It's like selling a Lamborghini to a Ford audience.

Yeah today I read a blog from an Electronic House editor on 4K possibly being the big thing coming at CES in January. To my surprise the blog echoed some of my skeptical sentiments. EHouse seems to be pretty quick to jump on the new tech bandwagon and there is no doubt that this could be a tougher sell than HD or 3D to many. Anyways, read it here if your interested:

I'm still all about 4k if some content shows up on disc... even in limited form.
