  1. Thank you, Gregory - this indeed is a welcome news, albeit not so surprising since Philips/XGEM was procrastinating with the release of HDP2550 so long that one could predict that they would probably need to come out with a bit more updated model than what HDP2550 was to be offering over HDP2510. I personally like the paper shredder/cooling box design and I can understand why they decided to go with the white color this time. Nonetheless, for my particular situation (I plan to put the projector besides my black speakers), I would still prefer to have it in black. But if I were to be using it "stand-alone", I would choose a white one. Hopefully HDP3550 can match the performance of ViewSonic PX800HD, which (putting aside the fact it can't be purchased in the EU) you seem to favor over HDP2510. Google Translation:
  2. Hello, 5000 lm is the light source brightness and you should get 1300 - 1550 lm at the screen. At least this is the information I found at AVS Forums, where as the source they cite this chinese forum. What potentially bothers me personally - besides the projector not being offered directly to the European market - is the noise (up to 44.3 db) and high input lag (88 ms)... But we'll have to wait to get confirmation or rebuttal of this information from more reviews when they trickle on the internet. Google Translation:
  3. Also I believe this to be a personal information phishing scam, where the 'seller' cancels your order but in the process collects from Amazon as much of your personal information possible, transmitted to them after you make the purchase. Traduction Google: Aussi, je crois que cela est une escroquerie de phishing d'informations personnelles, où le «vendeur» annule votre commande, mais dans le processus recueille d'Amazon autant de vos informations personnelles possible, transmis à eux après que vous faites l'achat.
  4. Hello, I am fairly certain that at least the supplier on the Amazon UK is fake as its Trade register number is nowhere to be found within the UK register of companies (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/), the VAT ID information is missing and its Business name is TASKschauspielschule (an acting scool for children in Germany? https://kinderschauspielschule.de/) with its business type being Schauspielschule (acting school). Also needing to contact the seller (at some pretty generic gmail address) before making a purchase is pretty shady and telling in itself. As cclr put it eloquently - I wouldn't risk it either. Traduction Google: Bonjour, Je suis assez certain que au moins le fournisseur sur l'Amazonie britannique est faux car son numéro de registre de commerce est introuvable dans le registre des entreprises du Royaume-Uni (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/), les informations d'identification de la TVA Est manquante et son nom commercial est TASKschauspielschule (un scool en fonction pour les enfants en Allemagne? https://kinderschauspielschule.de/) avec son type d'affaires étant Schauspielschule (école d'action)? Aussi besoin de contacter le vendeur (à une adresse assez générique de gmail) avant de faire un achat est assez ombragé et dire en soi. Comme cclr le mettre éloquemment - je ne le risque pas non plus.
  5. Hi cclr, I am glad to hear that you are happy with the HDP2510! And I totally agree with you on the "old school" menu styling - I fancy it too! In the end, the software side matters only as much as it limits our ability to use the product or, on the other hand, gives it some additional functionality, which other solutions (running different software) are missing. In case of using "proper" Android, the bonus might be access to certain apps (and their ability to extend the basic functionality of the projector) or to use Google casting directly (without the need for Chromecast). But the HDP2550 doesn't seem to offer the latter, only Miracasting and I don't know if the former will be possible (installing apps from Play Store). Also, if we are able to gain comparable functionality through some other means (possibly cheaper), all of these "out-of-the-box" additions become just a matter of convenience. Even more so, if they come at a (too) steep increase in price. In case of HDP2550's Wi-FI, buying a Chromecast (~40EUR) or even something like Xiaomi Mi Box (estimated to cost under 100EUR) would pretty much achieve the same thing the new Screeneo is presumably trying to offer over the old one. In fact, setup with such an external device hooked-up to the HDP2510 might functionality-wise quite possibly far surpass a standalone HDP2550! Doing so at comparable or even lower cost! Traduction Google : Salut CClR, Je suis heureux d'apprendre que vous êtes satisfait de la HDP2510! Et je suis totalement d'accord avec vous sur le menu style "old school" - je crois aussi! En fin de compte, le côté logiciel importe seulement autant qu'il limite notre capacité à utiliser le produit ou, d'autre part, il donne des fonctionnalités supplémentaires, que d'autres solutions (exécutant un logiciel différent) sont manquants. En cas d'utilisation Android "appropriée", la prime pourrait être l'accès à certaines applications (et leur capacité à étendre les fonctionnalités de base du projecteur) ou à utiliser Google coulée directement (sans la nécessité de Chromecast). Mais le HDP2550 ne semble pas offrir ce dernier, seulement Miracasting et je ne sais pas si le premier sera possible (installation d'applications de Play Store). En outre, si nous sommes en mesure d'obtenir des fonctionnalités comparables par d'autres moyens (éventuellement moins cher), tous ces ajouts "out-of-the-box" deviennent juste une question de commodité. Plus encore, si elles viennent à un (trop) forte augmentation des prix. En cas de connexion Wi-FI de HDP2550, l'achat d'un Chromecast (~ 40EUR) ou même quelque chose comme Xiaomi Mi Box (coût estimé à sous 100EUR) serait à peu près réaliser la même chose la nouvelle Screeneo est sans doute d'essayer d'offrir sur l'ancien. En fait, la configuration avec un tel dispositif externe raccordé-up à l'HDP2510 pourrait fonctionnalité sage très probablement dépassent de loin un HDP2550 autonome! Cela à un coût comparable ou même plus bas!
  6. Gregory, I believe that the layout of the speakers should be described as 5.1.2 and 5.1.4 configuration - not 5.2.1 and 5.4.1... ;-)
  7. @fantomas: I agree with you that Philips/Xgem didn't stretch much over this Screeneo upgrade, but if this can make you feel any better - if the same chip from HDP1690 series is used in Sreeneo 2S also (high probability), its Wi-Fi should support dual-band (2.4GHz and 5Ghz) and according to Wi-Fi Alliance's certification, HDP1690 is capable of using two streams simultaneously on each of the bands (speeds of up to 300Mbit/s per band). Also, as Android 4.4 is mentioned as an operating system running on HDP2550, there might be some improvements done on the user-interface's side. While HDP1690 has Android 4.2 listed as an operating system, HDP2510 doesn't have its operating system listed at all (although Gregory has confirmed that it is also running Android) and we all know how utilitarian its user-interface is (I personally don't mind its "old-school" feel)... ;-) But yes, this seems more of a small incremental update than a real step forward.https://translate.google.fr/?hl=fr#en/fr/%40fantomas%3A I agree with you that Philips%2FXgem didn't stretch much over this Screeneo upgrade%2C but if this can make you feel any better - if the same chip from HDP1690 series is used in Sreeneo 2S also (high probability)%2C its Wi-Fi should support dual-band (2.4GHz and 5Ghz) and according to Wi-Fi Alliance's certification%2C HDP1690 is capable of using two streams simultaneously on each of the bands (speeds of up to 300Mbit%2Fs per band).

Traduction Google : @fantomas: Je suis d'accord avec vous que Philips / Xgem n'a pas étirer beaucoup au cours de cette mise à niveau Screeneo, mais si cela peut vous faire sentir mieux - si la même puce de la série HDP1690 est utilisé dans Sreeneo 2S également (forte probabilité), son Wi-Fi devrait soutenir bi-bande (2,4 GHz et 5 GHz) et selon la certification Wi-Fi Alliance, HDP1690 est capable d'utiliser deux flux simultanément sur chacune des bandes (des vitesses allant jusqu'à 300Mbit / s par bande). En outre, comme Android 4.4 est mentionné comme un système d'exploitation fonctionnant sur HDP2550, il pourrait y avoir des améliorations effectuées sur le côté de l'interface utilisateur. Alors que HDP1690 a Android 4.2 répertorié comme un système d'exploitation, HDP2510 n'a pas son système d'exploitation répertorié du tout (bien que Gregory a confirmé qu'il est également en cours d'exécution Android) et nous savons tous comment utilitaire son interface utilisateur est (je n personnellement ' t l'esprit sa sensation "old-school") ... ;-) Mais oui, cela semble plus d'une petite mise à jour incrémentale d'un réel pas en avant.
  8. Great question, cclr - I was wondering the same thing. Its interesting that the information about operating system is omitted from the specification page for HDP2510 and not for HDP1690 (Android 4.2) and HDP2550 (Android 4.4). I am really curious whether this means that the new Screeneo's user-interface is more in line with HDP1690 series or keeps the "utilitarian" look of HDP2510?
  9. Again, Gregory, thank you for taking the time to get answers for us! :-) Since Xgem was very generic in its answer, I presume that the same wireless chip is used across entire Screeneo line. If that is true and if somebody else is interested in this information, according to specs of HDP1690(TV) on Philips site, the projectors do support dual-band Wi-Fi: http://www.philips.fr/c-p/HDP1690_EU/screeneo-projecteur-led-intelligent-screeneo/spécifications And according to certification information on Wi-Fi Alliance's page, the HDP1690 is capable of using two streams simultaneously, both on 2.4GHz and 5GHz, which means speeds up to 300Mbit/s: https://www.wi-fi.org/zh-hans/content/search-page?keys=hdp1690 Shame they decided to still not include Ethernet connector - arguably not as practical as Wi-Fi in many situations, it still can come quite handy and usually means higher obtainable speeds with connections without interruptions. Oh, well - we can't have it all. ;-)
  10. Thank you, Gregory! You are the best! :-) Could you also be so kind and ask them if Wi-Fi supports MIMO and if it does, how many data streams it can do? This would determine maximum achievable speed (150-450 Mbit/s) and therefore potentially influence usability for transmitting high(er) quality media directly to this projector. I just remembered... Does any of the HDMI inputs on the new Screeneo support ARC? True, this is more of a convenience than anything else, but it can simplify hooking projector to the external speakers (in the sense that one can operate both devices - speaker(s) and projector - with the same remote). I own Philips Fidelio E6 speakers (they support HDMI ARC) and if the new projector proves to be updated sufficiently, I intend to buy one and hook these together... ;-)
  11. First of all, please accept my apologies for writing in english, but I don't speak french and using Google for translation wouldn't do your language justice... Thank you for posting the notice for the new (or rather updated ;-)) Screeneo! I have been following this forum with great interest, because I find the projector very appealing and quality of information I have found here is really good (thank you Gregory et al.). I am very pleased to learn that Philips decided to address network connectivity as one of the features missing with the "old" HDP2510. Unfortunately, it seems they decided to go with older Wi-Fi standard(s) and not implement the newer 802.11ac. Do you know if Wi-Fi on this projector supports 5GHz band? Also in the specs there is no mentioning of Ethernet support - is it really missing or just the specs are incomplete? If one looks at the specs of HDP1590/HDP1690 on the official Philips site, Ethernet is also missing from their specs, but both projectors have Ethernet connectors. Thank you again for your help.
