    Word on the street is that the price may come down slightly however they are removing the faroudja chip which is the srongest reason for owning this PJ. If you are considering getting one I wouldn't wait.

    The Infocus 4800 which is an X1 rebadged will keep the Faroudja however this PJ is $1400+ lots of good info on these PJ's at avsforum

    I have no idea how much this projector will go down, if it goes down at all. I will point out that this projector has already taken a big drop from something like $1400 or $1500 to $999. That is one reason it is so popular.

    I suggest getting one now before the Faroudja chip is removed. You may not need it, but when it comes time to sell, people will pay more if it has the Faroudja chip than if it doesn't.
