casio slim line is one.
This one will most likely be lower quality.
4/3 is not as good as 16/9
2000 lumen is not very much. 100k contrast ratio is insane though!
Good for the bedroom, and 6-12 seat pitch dark living room, to project a 86cm diag screen on the wall; nothing more.

3:4 and 16:9 (and 16:10) are aspect ratios, and have nothing to do with one being 'better' or 'worse' than the other. This is a multimedia projector so 3:4 is a bigger draw to that audience.
2000 lumens is ridiculously bright! You can display it in a fully lit classroom and be able to see the image at that brightness! The sheer contrast of that in a dark basement would give you an instant headache. Most home theatre projectors of any real quality are 1000 lumens or less. Perhaps you were thinking of the candle or lux scale?
Either way, this hybrid laser tech has been around for a very long time. Having acer take the reigns though may mean that it is finally ready for mass production and general purpose use (read; lower prices). A home theater 1080p version would be nice as well and would probably sell better... but this would be a perfect projector for schools, businesses and institutions.
According to the manufacturer, the 520 Hybrid LED laser projector delivers a dynamic contrast ratio of up to 100,000:1, 2000 lumens of brightness, 3D image output support, as well as VGA, composite ...

I was thinking that this might be a business presentation oriented model. home theaters usually have higher res and less brightness, depending on the price range.
Sounds like a step in the right direction for those of us that use projectors on a daily basis, currently using a samsung F10m with 1000 lumens, 20-30k hour. this type of projector maintains a constant brightness and doesn't dim with the hour count and no need for $400.00 bulb replacement every 2k hours. I could use a couple of these in the office.
