Personal Experience
Overall I'm very satisfied with this projector. Because of the short lense, I have 106" inches just 3 meteres away from where I'm sitting. This gives a nice big cinema feeling. The picture is crystal clear IF the source is good, and the quality of the video-stream (DVD) is good. I'm using component cables to a DVD-930 DVD player.

I think it is a bit noisy. It's starts very quiet, about 28dB, but during the film, the fan is accelerating. I have it mounted to the ceiling, and I guess the temperature there is the problem.
