A friend's kid is looking for a good option for a higher end PJ. Budget is $12-15K. Units to consider please?
There was a recent article in Home Theater Review on thix topic. Sony is still the only true 4k. However, JVC is doing something that the writer says he couldn't tell the difference in the JVC picture compared to true 4k.
At the moment, the only true 4K home market projectors are made by Sony. The others are pixel shifting designs. The lowest price Sony 4k projector is the 300 series (approx $10,000). The newest 600 series is approx $15,000. Texas Instruments has announced a new 4K DLP chip for home projectors, but the timeline for market introduction and prices are not available yet. HDR performance is not as good for current projectors as it is for flat screen tvs. Also beware of last years models that may not be HDMI2.0 or HDCP2.2 compliant (one can work around this by getting a HDFury Integral).
I do not have any personal experience with projectors but I would start with some reviews and maybe head over to AVSForum and do a search or two.
but go for closer to $20,000...
with what I know.
Meaningless, pointless Humor.
Assuming your reply is a joke, yes?
Anybody have real advice?
Mickey Mouse Pajamas. They are indeed the best.
4k projectors are thin on the ground at this time. The best rated are the e-shift ones at the moment.
My advice would be that due to both the lack of product and software you would be much better served by getting a stop-gap unit like the Epson Home Cinema 5030UB which is relatively cheap and wait out the market. Your friend will end up with a much better end result in the end.
