gents (and ladies),
I've been going back and forth on these 3 units for almost a week now for various reasons: Optoma HD20, Epson 8350 or Mitsubishi HC4000
I like the Optoma HD20 because of its low price point ($800) and for all the great reviews it has gotten so far.
I like the Epson 8350 for the reviews. It's an LCD projector so if I or someone in the family is sensitive to seeing rainbows' this is a safe bet. The lowest price for this online is $1200. But the biggest issue I have with this unit is, it's big as a tank
I also like the Misubishi HC4000 also for its reviews (2 of the popular projector review sites gave high reviews for both Mits HC4000 and Epson 8350). My concern with this unit is that #1. There are very few actual USER reviews (besides the ones on this forum from a few individuals there are hardly very many compared to the above 2). #2. A lot of people have also mentioned that besides seeing the 'rainbow' effect there is noticeable light leakage. Lowest price point online for this unit: $1200
I would like to hear from users who have used at least 2 of these units in the past, particular from those who own the HC4000. I did read this one tread
on avs, but I'd like to hear more if I can.
I don't mind spending that extra $400 on the Mits4000 or Epson 8350 as long as I will see the difference on a day to day. I plan on using it for watching mainly movies during night time rather than use this as a substitute for tv.
Looking for your suggestions and recommedations. Happy Holidays everyone!
