Well I read you and Zombie's experience for the ones I cannot see, so I think that is as good as my own experience pretty much when I recommend something. I'd love to go through as many as you people have, but I am so busy coding on these tools that I don't have the time. If I stopped visiting the forums so much, I'd probably have been done with these tools years ago
I've been through a lot of projectors myself SLOWLY over the years, but you guys are at a lightning pace. It took me almost 2 years just to see E-shift 1, and I still haven't seen e-shift 2. I did see an RS-46 though, but that doesn't have E-Shift. I still haven't got a chance to test a new Sony, though I did see one in a demo but it was half-working, there was something wrong with the HDMI cabling or something.
It is really hard to tell much from Dealers to be honest, as I can't tell anything most of the time. I still can't tell if the Runco I saw was sharper than the Benq, though I am pretty sure it was now that I had more time with the Benq and saw how ring-a-ding-ding the Benq sharpening filter can be at times (though I've gotten used to it, so I'm actually using HTPC on the Benq instead of the JVC).
I'm actually coding from my Couch in the living room lately ON a projector screen (sorry if I already mentioned that). At first I couldn't do it, but I got used to it.
