I suppose I'm looking at the situation from the viewpoint of how I view media. I view everything from my PC. So for someone who's been using a blu-ray player and only standalone devices for the last 6+ years I can see making the jump from "plug and play" to "I have to set a few things up/not quite as convenient" as a bit of a problem. Also, this specific thread, who's comprised of people who can afford a $25000 projector probably isn't the best place for my soapbox and I'm sure I'll get some backlash for my comments. I'm only 25 so that puts me at a big disadvantage to most of the folks posting in this thread who don't necessarily conform to my financial situation. I'm just out of college with about 2 years at my first "real" job and making some decent cash, but not enough to buy something like the 1000ES brand-new. I say this because it's the reason I value my PC so much. I get so much functionality and value from it at the expense of "plug and play". For me, right now at least, I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of my time to set things up if that means I can get on-par processing performance compared to the lumagen. For others (in this thread especially) who have the extra cash I completely understand that they value the convenience of plug and play just as much as I value the the slightly more tedious cheaper method. That's a totally legitimate stance.
