  1. Same here, but since I rarely see rbe it's a non issue. I see it on the 990, but never on the 5700.
  2. Yeah I'd take anything he says with a grain of extreme bias 😂
  3. Oh man this is tragic. They really need to bring their A-game when you have BenQ, Sony and Epson doing good things . BenQ have really raised the bar this year and are paying closer attention to their customers opinions. Very impressive projectors and my personal fave right now. Yes I know I sell them again now, but if you know me, i'm not about being a box mover. I sell them because they're damn good. I even have a 990 here and see some minor rbe, it needs firmware fixes, but if the engineers and developers at BenQ are happy to work with us peasants then it goes a long long way to perfecting the product because we use them, we know what they need... I can barely fault the 990 aside from native black level and some work needed with the laser dimming. (and maybe a few remote control menu changes) The image has been compared to the Sony 5000 which is 90K retail? Incredible really. Funny though I never saw the yellowing on my N7 nor has @Davo1972 ? Maybe the first ones didn't suffer from it. I'm sure they'll sort it out eventually. Just read your post @betty boop so that would explain it. One of the problems the 3 chip mobs may never fix is just that, 3 chips + couriers. You're talking single microns of movement = convergence and colour fringing on screen and the software driven helper they use only blurs the pixels, as Owen has said a trillion times. A big bonus for DLP is that never happens.

  6. I'm a dune dealer shoot me a PM any time. Update: Just chatting to rep. They are only bringing in the entry level unit at present with some Pro 4K PLus and Base 4K coming next month in limited numbers. here's the PDF of all the models and comparisons between them. 5 models in the range. the 2nd one up will be $585 RRP and the Base 4K being $879 RRP. I'm surprised there isn't more talk about these too.. Are people simply going off avs? I currently have the zappiti which is ok, but the projector remotes all take the zappiti off pause or fast forward it a chapter etc, really annoying. I don't remember having any of those issues with the Dune when I last had one. DuneHD_Pro4K_Pro4KPlus_Base4K_Max4K_Ultra4K.pdf

  8. And an attempt to confuse the masses and hide how ripped off Australia is when it comes to consumer electronics? I don't think they know what to call them. In Australia it's meant to be the N5, N7 and NX9 (assuming X is for the e-shift 8k thing) Then in the USA it's the RS1000, 2000, 3000, but they also list them as NX5, NX7 and NX9. https://www.projectorcentral.com/JVC-DLA-NX5-projection-calculator-pro.htm
  9. That's a ripper price when you take into account probably 500 in ebay fees. Not sure what price you think we get these things for, but 25% is pretty standard margin and 20% off leaves a measly 5%.. Might as well work for wages haha I think this is west coast hifi's surplus stock ebay store from memory. You'd be safe with them, great company.

  11. What model is the 5050 here in Oz?
  12. I asked customer how his new 5700 going, his reply: Do comparing it to my old w7000 it is much sharper and has a much better 3 dimensional image. The blacks does seem better and are ok(w7000 was pretty ordinary and they are DLPs). When looking at blacks on screen, they look good to me. WCG and HDR are great.
  13. I think they're saving them for next year 😂
  14. The guys that did the video of the NX9 in the USA at best value hifi with Kris Deering there, they said they had no idea when the e-shift was on or off, could not tell a difference at all.. So we get 'pretty significant' to 'is it on or off'.... Something isn't quite right there would you agree Al?
