I really like my xb31, altho pls understand that I don't have much of a frame of reference. This is my first front projector and it replaced a 12 year old 40" rptv that was dying, so just about anything was going to be better.
You may have read some of the other threads about the xb31 and may have heard me snivel about the cable situation. All component video enters the pj thru an M1-DA port. There is a VGA to M1 cable included with the kit and a 3 RCA to M1 is available from HP or third party. The M1 is a bit non-standard so the cable companies have not yet fielded a number of options for hookup. This is my only gripe.
White blooming is adjustable to my satisfaction.
I purchased mine sight unseen and couldn't be happier! I like the color, black levels, the sharpness of the image and the "warmth" of the picture quality.
I'd do it again.
