Good info here. Just ordered mine last night and got a heck of a deal on it. Can't wait to try it out and see how bright this is. I'm coming from a Panasonic pt ae2000 which all lights have to be off and the picture is still dim. Got 1 window in the room and a light paint color so I'm looking forward to seeing how much brighter this is for me. I also have a high contrast perforated gray screen and I wonder if that should be upgraded as well.
Gotta love early Xmas gifts!
