Well I was hoping my Qumi would be here today (NOT), so I'll have to wait till Monday. I have been sold on the Qumi since January, I've been checking this thread/my E-Mail daily as to status of the Qumi.
I see a lot of people got it (jealous), but I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of videos/screens shots on this thread. Except the pictures taken by Zombie 10K (Dude nice pictures) and looking forward to more detail from him.
At first, I planed to stay out of the fray (figuring all details would be hit to the Nth degree by the time I got mine) but changed my mind. Some here know me from the LG HS201 thread and I plan to follow the same path in my “Nobody’s” $.02 worth perception, so let me start be giving some background.
I'm 53, my ears ring, and I tend to be a bit thrifty. My set up is, a Da-lite High Gain screen (2.8), a room that I have total light control over, a LG BD 550 BD player, an Onkyo (1200 W 7:1) 5300 HTIB and have a HTPC I built (after my first blew up after rearranging my room), this computer is a dual core AMD running @ 3.2G, 512 Mbt ATI video, 1.5Tbt hard drive, 4G of memory with HDMI video out.
I will be using the Qumi with everything stated above, I will be taking pictures with a Nikon power shot A1000 off a tripod using a delay (to remove any picture quality issues associated with hand movement) and screen size will be 100 to 110 inch (Diag).
My projector experience (so things can be put in prospective) is. Started with an Infocuse X1, after color wheel cooked moved on to the Infocuse IN 26, after a plastic lens melted moved on to the LG HS 201 (where I am today). I still like my 201 and didn't make the move to the HX 300 (not enough bang for the buck (thrifty thing) and wanted true 720P). So I've had the 201 since 12/09 till today, the 201 cost me $499 (and because I am a very heavy user, it has already paid for it's self vs bulb cost) and am happy that 20 months later I'll be getting a projector with 50% more brightness, 25% better contrast, and @ 1280X800 vs 800X600 and true 720P for the same price.
I hope/plan to do some side by side between the Qumi/Hs 201(using an HDMI splitter), using DVD, BD disk, and HDTV on my HTPC via USB tuner stick. Last year I took a lot of pictures using the 201 using many formats, BD,DVD, HTPC, USB HDTV ( I won't re-post them, just check page 2-8/9 of the 201 thread to see them).
Well, enough for now, let the FUN begin
