I'm fairly new to the home theatre scene so I can't say I have an expert opinion however I am very impressed with this projector. I've clocked up 80 hours now and have enjoyed every one of them. I'm actually projecting onto a bed sheet which is probably the worst set up for a projector but the HS3 seems to make the most of it. Very bright and clear. Screen door effect isn't bad and is completely unnoticable to me with a bit of defocusing and sitting back at an appropriate distance.
On the back panel you've got Composite, S-Video and HDMI. You've then got another Composite, S-Video and Component inputs via the "PJ multi" input and the supplied breakout cable (which is a handy 5m long). No VGA input though unless you spend ~$100 to get a different breakout cable for the PJ multi input.
Can't say I've had any problems with this projector. The menu is easy to navigate, although a snappier response to button pushes would be nice. Noise from the fans when they kick into high gear gets a bit excessive sometimes but a bit of good ventilation could help. (It's coping with a rather warm air temperature in this Australian summer too)
