Personal Experience
A brilliant projector with bags of lumens for a real cinema experience, especially when considering the portability factor. Minimal screen door (unlike some LCD projector). I only just notice the DLP rainbow effect during certain fast moving scenes - it certainly doesn't bother me. Bumping up the contrast setting to 70 or so boosts the perceived contrast ratio to look better than the rated 400 would have you believe.

The only minor problem I've seen is that the projector occasionally has problems locking on to my laptop VGA output (IBM Thinkpad) resulting a slight smearing of the image. A quick adjustment of the sync settings on the projector quickly fixes this though. Would have liked to see component input as standard rather than an option...
