Personal Experience
This projector had a lot of potential. We originally bought one for home theatre use. It has excellent resolution and sharpness, smoothly scaled images and great support for progressive scan (480p) DVDs. But color problems forced us to return ours.

Our first unit had a distinct green cast in midtones and fleshtones in the top-right corner of the screen. The second had almost the same problem, only this time it was in the opposite (top-left) corner, and was in blacks and shadows (and more pronounced, making the top-right look distinctly magenta.) Can only imagine it being some kind of design flaw -- offset LCDs perhaps?
