That's nice to read about, but they definitely do have some significant work cut out if they are going up against the other players in that range. InFocus, Optoma, Sharp, Epson, Sanyo, Panasonic, BenQ, and others are all already playing in that field and I'm not sure if Samsung is up to date on the manual to play in the low figures.
1. What is the actual throw distance ratio range.
2. What is the lens offset percentage?
3. 1,000 lumens? That's pretty low considering some of the alternatives.
4. What's the refresh rate? (60hz? 120hz? 72hz? Fluxuates?)
I would consider HDMI 1.3 standard and it's good to see 1080p/24 acceptance in there, but the playback specification is lacking.
Hopefully Samsung will get this out to the major review sites and not just hope for some magazine coverage as it definitely hits a price point which makes it interesting. But, if it doesn't outperform the HD20, which is $1,000, with similar specs, then it isn't something I would recommend.
