Newest owner here....one piece of advice, after 3 hours: EXCELLENT
super bright, excellent colors, great blacks, simple setup, ultra quiet, zero light leakage.
I had to make a quick decision to replace my Sony VPL-HW10 that died. Maybe I am just overwhelmed by the state of technology today, and using a 4 year old $3,000 Sony as a basis of comparison is too easy.
So far i have barely tweaked it: hung it in same place; used the lens shift; the power zoom; then the focus. Out of the box "Normal Mode" was too bright for my room (cave; 106" screen; PJ lens about 10 feet from screen). RS702 Mode...or whatever it is called is a quick convenient setting and i liked it...put the lamp in ECO mode and shut off Dynamic Iris. Watched CBS HD football game then 60 Minutes. Turned back on Dynamic Iris halfway through, i think it was better.
Reds are outrageous...good..in my opinion.
For what it's worth, the 3 people watching liked 3 different Picture Modes, so clearly subjective reviews of PQ are just that. All i can say is i think I got a winner!
