Barely, because I went to place that didn't have 3D setup to be useable. To be honest, I really couldn't tell much, I did walk up to the screen and the focus isn't bad and the projector looks sharp from seating distance. A slight uniformity error on the edges, but not that much different than the Mits hc4000 (although the Mits focused slightly tighter in the center from memory, but had about the same uniformity error, now that is a quick eye is all). Everything looked good and DLP'ish like it should look.
Based on other opinions in the forum, I think it is a very good 3D projector, but it doesn't have quite as much 3D lumens as some of the newer ones do.
Keep in mind there are places to go in most cities you can see projectors yourself, some even at major DEPT. stores, Magnolia, Fry's (some Fry's are hard and you have to be pro-active), etc... For instance Audio Video Interiors has multiple location spread around and if you call one (or even email), they can sometimes coordinate something in a particular area or near a city (even if they do not have a showroom), OR they often know the showrooms in their respective areas, or will have someone contact you. There are also places like StarPower in Dallas and others. You can also post a thread in the forums asking other members where the showrooms are in your city. Even AVS has some people that are willing to show you projectors if you are nearby where they can display one, and calling someone at AVS might give you some ideas where some other showrooms are. I think there is a thread in this forum somewhere that lists some of them, but I believe it is far outdated.
