Hey bqmeister--no problems at all. I think I am going to get the Oppo today. At $100 I do not have much to lose.
dchayer--The picture is very nice on this Sharp. It is definitely better then the Panny, with more depth. However, i can't say I am completely blown away yet. In some ways, the XVZ3K seemed to have a bit more contrast to me then this one, but that could be past imagination. I am going to reserve judgment until I can dial the pic in better.
I am one that sees RBE. I have not seen any with this PJ so far, but i have not watched many movies yet. I guess i should go get the "sin city torture test" and see what happens. On HDTV and such, I have not had any problems yet.
As far as the noise from the fan, because you can have this PJ so far back, it really seems to be a non-issue, for me at least. If it was close by your head, this could be a problem for some. My PJ is about four to five feet back from where I sit. However, this also means that I cannot get as large a picture as I could from the Panny or the XVZ3K of course, but it is big enough. It would have been nice if the zoom was a bit larger, but this is not a big deal at all.
Love the lens shift on this baby!
The XVZ3K seemed to have a better over-scan option. I am curious to hear from anyone that came from a Z3K or DT500 to see how you think they compared to this one.
I do have some questions for people that have one of these already.
Is the only way to work the overs-can with the picture resizing mode on the remote? I did not see any over-scan key in the menu. The XVZ3K seemed to have a better over-scan option. I am curious to hear from anyone that came from a Z3K or DT500 to see how you think they compared to this one.
Is there a way to put the fan in a slower or higher speed, or is it just one speed.
