For the price is difficult to find a better one! I tried now different type of connection, starting from S-Video, Component & HDMI! Best is HDMI. I can't understand bad rating from the other user! I think, he didn't select the right option like I did before! The right selection with 6500 K, Film 1 and eco shows best movie. Better projector compared with Mitsubishi HC 1600, ACER 5350 and my old PANA PT-AE 500.

Very Good Projector and full made in Korea really value your money. I haven't found any sort of problem with this machne and I would like to recommend it. It's a nice home theater quality projector.

Review by Alamar

We bought this projector to replace our SP 4805 when the power supply died. We had at first tried the Mitsubishi HC 1600 but found rainbows to be entirely too distracting. Next we looked to the A400, which cost slightly more. There were very few specs available, but the price seemed reasonable and the specs that could be found implied that this would be a good unit. On the plus side it was extremely quiet, especially compared to the 4805. It turned out that this unit, unlike the A800, had a very limited zoom range making it very difficult to place. Most troubling was picture quality. All of the preset calibrations looked both washed out and tinted - either to the blue or green end o the spectrum or just entirely too bright. No amount of tinkering with the settings (which were buried deeply in the menu) could produce more than an adequate image. While rainbows were not nearly as noticeable on this unit as the Mitsubishi, they were still present and sealed this units fate. We're now waiting for our Sanyo Z60 to arrive and have our fingers crossed.

Any Problems: The image quality on this projector was very poor. Colors looked terrible and were very difficult to adjust. Minor but noticeable rainbows were also present.
