The Vango is excellent. It's brighter than the Delta clones (Runco Q750i, Vivitek H9080FD, and NuVision ProVu P2), has a much nicer lens that has motorized zoom and focus (it's huge!), it has enough zoom to do CIH with either lens option, and image pop and naturalness is stunning. I attribute this to the immaculate lens quality (very high ANSI contrast and image sharpness)
The projection optical system is just like the rest of the projector, absolutely uncompromising quality and stable in their processing. The heavy glass lenses are mounted in black anodized metal, plastic one looks in vain! The above suspension optics alone weighs just a few kilograms, so sound is everything here built:
Motion processing is top notch. I've never seen pans and fast motion look so smooth. Contrast performance is on par with the Delta clones. Overall image quality is a clear step up over the Delta clones. As I said before, the image has this intangible naturalness that you just don't see on many other units.
I had three Vango's. I traded my first unit for the Digital Projection HIGHlite 1080p 260-HC. I was going to try a passive 3D stack with these units, but I just don't have the room for so many projectors. These need to go. They are for sale on ebay but if anyone is interested in them, let me know through a PM here. This is a great price for a DC4 DMD projector with high high end optics and video processing. The LEDs are just icing on the cake. No rainbows, less image noise, cooler and quieter operation, and ultra long stable and constant light output.
