I sit about 3 ft from this projector (in a living room) - with the LED mode on ECO. Once my surround system is on (even at a night-time low volume level) the fan is not audible. In comparison, I have a PS3 (fat), which is louder than the projector.
That being said - I have 2 loud USB fans in my A/V cabinet, and an air filter in the room, as well as a HTPC running - so I am surrounded by noise (none of which distracts me when I watch a movie).
The normal LED mode is louder - and is audible in quieter movie scenes.
I will try
to do a video tonight with only the projector on.
On a side-note, the contrast seems to be better than the ml-500 which I owned for 3 weeks; based on watching 2 movies. The picture does seem sharper as well (these are not side by side comparisons - just going by memory).
