I can explain the differences if you wish, though they are not significant, via pm.
Wow CM, you just can't help but try to spin things. First of all, I got 2 more lumens on low with iris closed, and 4 more lumens on high. I don't consider those very different numbers. I didn't post the iris open numbers before, but they were a bit higher. I think the Iris was not opening fully before when I measured, for some reason. Even still, I would not want to run this projector with the Iris open, because the On/Off CR is just barely at my level of tolerance, coming from an RS1.
At any rate, this is still significantly less than the rated lumens, and considerably less than others have reported. I suppose it might be much higher at a really short throw, but I am not going to mess up my install to find out.
Catdaddy, yes, the DLP look is there, and it is most noticeable in bright scenes. Where I found the RS1 to fall down, is particularly in bright scenes with light coming from behind the subject, there was definately a slight loss of depth. This holds up much better with DLP. Unlike the 3000e, I am pleased to not be seeing rainbows, so the image is very relaxing to watch.
