old member here, but only a few posts! I pretty much just enjoy the picture. I stepped up from a Sanyo PLV-Z1 and the AE3000U is fantastic as far as picture quality. Love how quiet it is and how cool it runs.
Since I'm building a new home right now, I just have it projected onto a white wall sitting on a table infront of us in our condo, I have not run any AVIA or DVE tests. No idea on convergence, color uniformity, dead pixels etc etc. I haven't tweaked anything and just watch it in Normal mode. Looks great to me and my wife concurs!
No fuzzy text from side to side, focus is very good. When using the remote, you can hold down the up or down button for a bigger effect on focus as you can actually hear the lens move. You can then click the buttons for subtle adjustment. I believe you can make subtle adjustments using the focus ring also.
