Resolution. At $799, the 750HD with its 1280x800 resolution faces competition from entry-level 1080p projectors that outperform it in terms of sharpness and detail. If you're looking for a razor sharp, 1:1 accurate picture from a 1080 source, the 750HD may not be the strongest projector at its price point. However, other attributes like color accuracy and brightness are in the 750HD's favor when compared to the competition, and these factors must be considered as well.
Color adjustments. Though color in factory presets is excellent, the projector's color controls are rudimentary at best. Color temperature is limited to three settings: High, which is obviously too blue; Medium, which is just about right; and Low, which is obviously too red. These presets can be adjusted by using the Color Adjustment menu, though this too is limited. Where many projectors have separate controls for gain and bias, the 750HD presents one unified slider for each primary color, making it difficult to fine-tune the projector's color performance. Good thing, then, that it is already accurate out of the box.
Connectivity. The 750HD has a single HDMI port while many of its competitors have two. If the unit is being used in occasional coffee table configuration it is unlikely that multiple HDMI sources would need to be connected simultaneously, but if that were needed, it can't be done.
