Personal Experience
I bought this unit to replace my Optoma H31. The H31 had almost 4000 hours on it and was getting flaky. I saw this unit advertised for a good price and was looking to move up to a 720p projector.

Out of the box the factory settings didn't look very good on my 100" screen. I ran video Essentials and dialed everything in. I use my Media Center PC exclusively so the projector gets everything at 720p and it does a great job. DVD's look fantastic. For us it just looks like such a sharper picture when compared to the Optoma. Since the screen size didn't change and the pixel count went way up!

I'm very happy with this projector. I have almost 400 hours on it already and it is working flawlessly.
