According to several reviews the ability to calibrate grayscale is limited to two colors at the high end of the spectrum and that is it ... Color accuracy is high on my list of important projector qualities, especially with flesh tones ... even if the Sharp had excellent accuracy out of the box, as the lamp ages they might start to slide and my ability to calibrate them or pay someone to calibrate them would be limited ... I would still buy it just to compare the two but I just don't have enough time ... I think I'm going to have to let this one go. Thanks again for weighing in, Zombie, and thanks especially for that manual link--very helpful. Reading through it, it looks like the calibration options are restricted to red and blue, which might not be that problematic, since if I remember correctly some calibrators say to leave green alone and just adjust red and blue ... still, no low end calibrations though ... I could buy it in the morning, I guess, take it home, ignore my two young children, compare it to the BenQ, and return one of them in the evening ...but the stress of having to make that decision in one day might be a little too much for me!
