Personal Experience
This is the unit to get. Your basically getting the same unit as the 700U, just saving $500 (or more). This projector with a nice quality screen will give you an outstanding picture. The extra 150 lumens and 700 contast that the 700U will give you wont even be noticed. I've seen 6000:1 contrast ratios that dont look any better than 1000:1. The secret is a NICE good quality screen. This unit will save you $$ that you can put towards a nice screen. That combination will blow away ANY 700U projecting onto a cheap pull down screen or a white wall. If your rich, go for the 700U AND a really nice screen.
 
Problems
Lose the DVI and give me another set of component inputs.
