It is not as noticeable from viewing position, but it definitely makes the overall image feel soft. This happens with both my sources, my htpc and ps3 as bluray player both through HDMI. I am really curious if this was what projector central's pre-production unit was suffering from?

Not bad having consistent reports from two continents and three countries!
I'm looking forward to more owners posting their impressions in here. I wish at this point I could take those sharpness comments back. With more testing, I have found that the patterns are perfect and pixel matched when native in both 16:9 and 2.35:1. It is only when using the aspect scaling method that they go out a bit, and since the image is scaled at that point, I don't think it's possible to have them pixel mapped in the first place. Again, I would like to state that after more viewing, that even when scaled and watching a video, it is imperceivable. Until a 'pro' can state what is going on, I wouldn't take the Mits out of the running.....go see it for yourself when/if you can.
Thank you very much for your full review Patrice. I was following your thread for quite some time. Eventually I will have to have my PJ calibrated (or more likely learn to do it myself), but in the meantime for the heck of it, I plugged your white balance and CMS numbers in and they look great. Everything is popping on the screen!! I love the DLP picture more and more every day.
I will watch some test material before the end of the week regarding 2D to 3D conversion and post my impressions.
