Did you import it?
Wouldn't it be the buyer who feels unsafe in an ebay transaction?
Sometimes Projector Central has incorrect lens throw ratios, so I'd double check, but this is a good calculator to play with for figure out where you can place your projector in relation to your screen size: http://www.projectorcentral.com/Sony-VPL-HW55ES-B-projection-calculator-pro.htm

They're scaling 1080p though. It's really apples and oranges. Most of the video processing on the Sony machines happens before the image is scaled. This is why a ton of functionality is dialsabled on the Sony's when they receive a 4K input. The saving grace I suppose is that hardware placed inside these displays is designed from the ground up to do a specific video processing task and the software is also fine tuned for that specific hardware. Hopefully I'm wrong and they...
