Personal Experience
You will find yourself wondering if it was possible for this little projector to have such a good image including how well it shows black. Panasonics own screendoor effect reduction works miracles in comparison with 10k $ competition. With proper tweaks and good source (very important factor) this projector will beat hands down any DLP in "blind" testing up to 20 grand. The only thing that comes close is JVC DILA line. If you get the chance visit as many dealers as you can with your own material test them all and see for yourself. OSD is very DOS like and remote is quite pathetic and those would be the only shortcomings I witnessed til now. I would not recommend this projector on a high gain screen but rather something darker. Enjoy.....
