Personal Experience
After having used the unit on a regular basis for nearly a year now, i have no queries in regard to its reliabilty and image quality, which still amaze me every time i turn the unit on. The chickenwire effect is somewhat noticeable when an image greater than 100" is being used, and can thus degrade your viewing pleasure, but by limiting the image size to less than this mark (which is pretty big anyway), you can't but enjoy the realism and amazing colour reproduction produced by this projector, which gives an impression well above its market price.

The lack of connectability to a computer and the fact that you have to buy sony's own cabling (which is priced accordingly to the segregated market), is a little on the annoying side, especially for your wallet!!!
