ohhhhh, THAT "back" button at the bottom right of the remote. was just about to give up testing it and decided to press ALL of the buttons on the remote
yeah, it's like 150% the noise of an overheating laptop. but for what i paid, i'm happy.
the only downside so far is that the color seems hard to fix/adjust. it looks realistic and/or balanced, but at the same time reds are a bit too intense.
oh, and i can't figure out how to get it to run at 120hz. guess i need to bug tech support for that.
also, i'm experiencing tearing that i didn't have with the HC4000. i've tried a bunch of different render surfaces as well as AMD's Smooth Video Playback. i haven't tried a computer with Aero enabled yet, tho.
my IN4805 was moderately loud, but at a lower frequency. i don't think i had to adjust it. my HD70 shifted to the yellow or green, which i knew about ahead of time, thankfully (due to this very forum). it was pretty quiet. my HC4000 seemed perfect out of the box, too (i can't remember if i had to change 1-2 notches on R or G or B or whatever the units were, or if i ended just going back to defaults). it was the quietest of the projectors i've had.
