Here is a screen shot. I gave it a couple nudge up in brightness in photoshop just to make it move visible.
I've found that the red haze seems to get more prominent the longer the projector is on.
The best way to check for it is most likely at the end of a movie when the credits are rolling since most are all black with text/credits.
The easiest way to look for it is look on the bottom right then scan your eyes across the bottom to the left than back to the right from about 10-12 feet away.
You'll notice the black is not consistent across the bottom and has the reddish haze on the lower right. You can use the same method from top left and scan to the right.
Another method is if you have a digital camera, focus on the black screen without flash as if you are going to take a picture. The view screen seems to pick up the red haze pretty good but I couldn't get it to capture it very well or even as good as the one Zanna captured below.
*You'll most likely will not notice this in normal viewing because your eyes are focused near the middle of the screen. Only when your eyes wonder to the upper left or lower right during dark scenes will you notice this red haze.
Still not sure if I'm going to keep it since this is the 3rd unit with the same exact issue from 3 different stores.
