I dont see this price. Is this for monday?
Hmm, pretty sure it was the stated price this morning. Might be an early Cyber Monday price error, I'd keep an eye on it.

Ignorant comment, new to projectors. New house has an old Panasonic, which is good at 1080p, but looking to upgrade. True 4k that much different?
FauxK is true 4K. It's just the method to display is pixel shift of a 1080p chip.

Just imagine 4, 1080p TVs 2x2 and each one is displayed one at a time. So a regular 60hz (60 frames per second) would mean you only get 15fps.... pretty bad, but since this projector displays 240hz each quadrant still gets 60 frames per second.

You, as a regular human will not really see a difference from a 240hz pixel shift 4K vs a "60hz true 4K".

The only true negative pixel shit imposes is the effective lumens takes a small hit. For most people this should be fine, but everyone's lighting situation is different and individually you'll have to decide if it works for you... it should, but that cant be universally guaranteed.

This isn't faux-k, that referred to the original 1080p doublers, which claimed to be 4k but were half the pixels. It's worth noting these shift, but most reviewers can't tell the difference on sharpness at viewing distance. The native 4k usually win on contrast and color which comes with their 3-10x price increase.

They offered me 1399 since it's sold out at Best Buy. Shame I wasn't home earlier.

Depends on your distance and projection size. Most folks don't realize that they cant even tell the difference between 2k and 4k at normal sitting distances until they hit about an 85" TV. If you're over 100" projection, 4k makes a difference, but color and contrast are still roughly as important. I used to have the Panasonic 3lcd you probably have. It's a great one, but this will likely be an upgrade above 100".
I appreciate the notes, I do have a display over 100" so I'll have to seriously consider the "true 4k".

How is this compared to Optoma UHD51A? Picked one up at Amazon for $1199 this morning. Is the 3550 worth the extra $100 if it hits this price again?

I have a 140" screen and I am super happy with the image quality upgrade from 1080p (my Acer 6510BD with 3000 lumens got a "bulb too hot, will shut down" with the new bulb after the one exploded in it). I read tons of reviews and I was sure the quality on 3550 is as great as you would get in sub $2k range, my only concern was the brightness since I wanted to have some lights on for the two little ones. The brightness is certainly lower but it is very usable with the wall sconce lights in one end of the room (on the wall adjacent to the screen).

I have a short-throw distance of about 11' (with the viewing size of 136" after black border) so my options were extremely limited: the only other 4k choices under $5k being the ViewSonic LS700-4k (which keeps getting delayed) and possibly Optoma UHD51ULV (would have given 130", unless I opened the wall to push projector further back). I considered the UST projectors but passed on them for now because of cost.
