    I'm about to purchase the screenplay 4800. Should I or should I not?

    SO the 4805 is different from the 4800. Would the 4800 have a faster wheel than the X1?

    Nope...same machine save for some connectivity/jacks.
    The 4805 is a improvement in a few important ways:

    16:9 aspect ratio
    854x480 native resolution DMD (new chip - not a masked SVGA DMD)
    4x color wheel (6 segment)
    Faroudja DCDi (FLI2310)
    2000:1 contrast @ 6500K video optimized settings
    750 lumens @ 6500K video optimized settings
    User controls for color gains and offsets, noise reduction, and chroma and luma sharpness
    DVI input with HDCP (M1-AD connector)
    3xRCA component input - accepts both interlaced and progressive signals
    12 volt screen trigger
    200W SHP lamp - 3000 hours - two power levels
    TI DDP2000 controller chip
    Based on the X2 platform (also introduced at CES)
    Optical system is optimized for the 16:9 DMD
    Chassis is very similar to SP4800 - slightly deeper to help remove heat waves

    Because the 4800 is the same exact machine as the X1. Except for a few minor differences (input jacks).

    The 4805 as a 6-segment (4x) wheel, it's 16:9 native, more lumens.
