Looks decent, but DLP is a no-go for me (rainbow effect). And no lens shift is very limiting.

I use a 1080p optoma in my basement now. Looking at the upgrades and a lot of people are against lens shift. Can you please explain why it can be considered advantageous? Us novices appreciate it.

Thanks,
Cody

When is the last time you gave DLP a shot? I used to see rainbows but haven't in the newer generations.

I look forward to reading a hands on review of this. Will wait to pull the trigger until one comes out.

I can't imagine why anyone would be against lens shift? It allows much more placement flexibility, as well as being much more forgiving during install. For a given zoom setting, there is exactly one place that your screen can go once the projector is mounted, and vice versa (assuming you don't want to mess with keystone, which you don't, it reduces image quality).

I've been eyeing faux 4k projectors for a while now. I was thinking about the the Epson 5040 for $3000 when it first came out last year and then the optoma came out with their versions and then vivitek and I just couldn't decide-now $1500 for true 4K.Definitely pleasantly surprised the 4K projector market has moved so quickly.I'll wait a bit for the reviews but i am glad i waited and get potentially a better projector for half the price.Patience is a virtue!

How come this article says this is pixel shifting and not true 4k?
