Personal Experience
This projector, once set up properly, produces a truly spectacular image. I tweaked it using Digital Video Essentials and was admiring the picture quality of DVD when the cable guy showed up to install a hi-def box. The resulting hi-def image is utterly crystal clear and can be described as "like looking out a window". The only weak point, as with all LCD projectors at this point, is the black levels. During dark scenes, the detail in the dark areas gets lost. That's a minor issue for me, and does not detract from the viewing experience. The usual concerns such as vertical banding, screendoor effect and stuck pixels are all non-existent on my unit. I love this projector and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a spectacular viewing experience at an affordable price!
