This review was short on new information I was looking for. Looking forward to Projectorreview finishing their review now....he will receive the 7800 on Tuesday according to the site.
I have found something interesting today regarding my sharpness issue. I set the pj up from the beginning for my 2.35 screen. In the manual, you can set the screen size for 2.35, 4:3, or 16:9. It seems that in 16:9 it is doing a 1:1 pixel map, but in my case with the 2.35 screen, I think the projector is scaling on it's own. Look at the huge difference in these patterns between 16:9 and 2.35. The term 'razor sharp' really is the case with 16:9. The color fringe you might see on top of the first picture does not exist to the eye, the camera picked it up. I need the 2.35 aspect ratio for my CIH setup....now what?!!! I am relieved I found the source of the problem though. I thought that 2.35 would keep the 1:1 pixel map as it is just re-positioned within the 16:9 picture. I sort of expected the pixel map to be lost only when changing aspect ratio and scaling down to 16:9 on 2.35 screen (Mits CIH method). Very open to any advice from here
