Ok so as a test I projected this onto a wrinkled white sheet hanging in the middle of an open walk way between a living room and kitchen, with tons of ambient light. Yeah, ideal conditions I think.
Even given all that, I'm already impressed. I haven't been in about a year or so, but for 7 years I was involved in custom home theater sales. I've seen everything from the Infocus 4805 that I used to own, to a 3 chip Runco with the finest supporting electronics. What I saw from this unit on the Bedtime Stories blue-ray for 5 mins was enough to get me very excited. I did some basic adjustments, and the picture I can tell is razor sharp. The colors are vibrant. I can't comment on blacks or shadow detail, because of the conditions I was watching it in, but I'm psyched. I was looking at a 92" image from 10 feet away, and I'm thinking that might even be too small. I used to sit the same distance from an 80" screen with a 480p and then 720p projector. I may stick with the 92" because I value the clarity of the image over the size, but something is urging me to get nearer to 100".
Either way, I can tell already that this will be money well spent. I'm also thinking that a matte white screen is probably going to be the way to go. Any other thoughts on that?
