    I spoke to a salesperson today about this. Stated that is a 5 segment color wheel and superior to the 4805. Will be selling for about $150 less too. Sounds intriguing.

    What is the speed of the color wheel? 2x, 3x, 4x?

    This is the product page from Benq

    http://www.benq.com/projectors/projector_pe5120.html

    It supports the same resolution as the 4805, but I can't seem to find out whether it uses the darkchip2 from TI. It's a 5 segment color wheel.

    Based on the specs it would look to be a direct competitor for the infocus 4805. I'd love to see a review on the unit, but so far nothing.

    Just a follow up on the wheel, it's a 2 speed, 5 segment wheel, with a yellow segment, along with white, red, green and blue.

    The 4805 has a 4X color wheel, so the 5120 can't compete in that aspect.
