First impressions: Awesome, mostly! My projector was delivered today from NCIX. I have pretty limited experience with projectors, but the picture is pretty comparable to the Acer H5360 it's replacing, except 1080p.
Black levels and contrast are a little better but not a class above the Acer (which is also darkchip3).
Sharpness is great and I can't see any lines between pixels from where I sit (~8 ft from a 100" screen).
No RBE to my eyes.
Smart eco seems to enable the dynamic lamp and it's horrible! The brightness increases and decreases in steps instead of smoothly. It's very distracting.
I couldn't get smooth playback of 23.976 content by setting my HTPC display to 23(.976)hz. There was noticeable judder, and I had to set the refresh rate to 24hz and use reclock to get smooth playback.
48hz seems to render incorrectly, the image is over contrasted with VERY crushed blacks.
The picture out of the box was a green tinted, but looks good after some quick adjustment.
Blacks are crushed at 50 brightness. 51 brightness is perfect.
The 3D sync seems red flash not white flash.
