Update on Epson's LS10500 Laser Projector

While Epson’s ProCinema LS10500 laser-based projector isn’t new, it was upgraded via firmware earlier this year. It delivered a superb image at CEDIA EXPO 2017 on a 124-inch wide, 2.40:1, Stewart Studiohawk 130 screen, a significant improvement over what I was able to squeeze out of a presumably earlier firmware sample when I reviewed it some months ago. Kudos also should go to calibrator Kevin Miller for his expert setup. The price remains the same at $8000.

Epson also went to the trouble to strip down an LS10500 for the exploded view shown in the photo. The inner complexity of today’s home digital projectors is astonishing.

Worth while update on the Epson LS10500.
I had discounted this particular model based on several reviews (including yours).
I am hopeful that soon we (customers) would see a great 4K Laser projector for $5,000. Unfortunately Sony was the only real game in town and they held all the cards. I'm glad that Epson is pushing the price and technology envelope.

I currently have an Epson 6030ub,a Panamorph UH480 lens being projected on to a Steward StudioTek 130. I have to say the picture is pretty phenomenal. I would very much so like to acquire the 10500. If anyone is interested,not the screen. Also a pioneer BDP-09,Kuro PRO 141. Like you I would like to see this projector priced around $5,000.00
