This seems to be exactly same as 705HD except with vertical lens shift plus few extra lumens of brightness.

I just got one 6/21, so I haven't had much time to to take it for a spin. I have a Samsung plasma that I love, so I was kind of nervous about black levels with this unit, although I am not a videophile by any stretch of the imagination. My initial impressions are quite good. I have been reading the 705HD thread in anticipation of getting my feet wet, and most of what is written in that thread seems to apply to this projector as well. I knew this was a bright display, but as this is my first projector I wasn't prepared for how bright it actually is. I am eager to try an ND4 filter that some of the 705 folks seem to have used with good results. The image on the 710 is very clear and the colors are very good without any serious tweaking/ calibration effort yet. I am projecting onto a piece of boc approximately 110", feeding it a 720p signal from a Comcast DVR, and haven't actually watched a movie yet; uncertain of distance from the wall at the moment. I have seen some motion blur, and tonight a moment or two of extreme pixelation, but I believe that was the broadcast signal and not the projector. I have gone from a 42" set to 110" which is, in itself, stunning. Again, it hasn't even been a week, but I feel confident that this has been a good choice given my budget and Epson's overall reputation for quality and customer service. I hope to provide an update once I have had a chance to do some basic calibration.

I just got my espon 710hd today @Best Buy, open box for$519.99:cool:
I had bought the optima hd66, but wasn't happy with the colors no matter how much I tweaked it. It just never look that great on the ps3 or directv hd channels.
Maybe I got a bad projector. So I took it back to best buy, a little nervous but I bought the espon 710. I was very impressed right out of the box, colors really popped on hi def. watched the avengers tonight using ps3/blu-ray for a $600 projector I can't complain. And it will just get sweeter with some tweaks.
I have a 19/1/2 x 15/1/2 theater room. Painted the walls and ceiling in a dark burgundy flat paint, all trim in a flat black. I'm projecting on to a 8' screen, made from Home Depot supply's lol. I have it framed and covered with a black velvet cloth. Screen painted with Home Depot silver screen paint, which is a flat paint.
I'm using this projector for ps3 gaming,blu-ray movies and hooked up to directv receiver hd movies. In my opinion it's awesome for the price. Oh yeah I'm sitting about 13' away from the screen, no issues so far. I don't have any windows in this room, just a sliding glass door that leads out to the deck. And really important, I got Best buys 4year warranty for $139, which covers the bulb as well.

By the "overspray" do you mean the light bands ( about 2-3 inches) at the top and bottom of the projected image? This is my first projector, but I believe that has to do with native aspect ratio; this is a 16x10 projector so if you are using a 16x9 setup there is little that can be done about that. In all honesty, I don't even notice that anymore. I have had this unit since June, and I have absolutely loved it. There hasn't been much activity here, but there are lots of useful tips in the 705 thread. As suggested in that thread, I tried an ND 4 filter for a while try to improve the black levels, but in the end, decided I liked the image better without it. What is interesting to me is that as of tonight I have 884 hours on the bulb since June, all in eco mode, and the color seems better (deeper and richer, not very technical terms, I know) than when I first got it. All of my settings are default, with the auto iris always off. You've probably already seen this, but it was nice to see a decent review after I got mine. http://www.projectorreviews.com/epson/home-cinema-710/index.php
For the price, this unit is hard to beat. I saw it on sale the other day locally for 599. Good luck.

Hola,
Carl thanks for the feedback on my reply...smile.gif And yes I do mean the light above and below the picture, Other then that like i said I totally love it...!!! I bought it at best buy about a month ago for $526...biggrin.gif I'm going to build a screen and put some lights behind the screen to give it an ambiten light effect and hopefully it will take away some of the overspray.... And I also did allot of reading up on it and saw some great reviews on this unit.... Again thank you for the feed back...

Your picture looks crooked because you have the projector tilted, ideally you want to have the projector perfectly level and square to the screen. I'm assuming you just put it on a coffee table and shot a picture to the wall.

To take care of the picture spill-over you have to buy a screen with a velvet frame to absorb the light that falls outside of the actual picture.

Good morning. You are welcome. Mr. G is correct, of course, that a screen with a black border will help absorb some of that spill-over, and it sounds as though you have the where-with-all to make your own screen so perhaps that is a feature that you will incorporate? I just wanted to make sure you understood that you were not missing a setting. Additionally, his suggestion to you about the "crookedness" is spot on too. It takes some experimentation to get it exactly level and square, perpendicular to the screen. Most of the research I've done thus far stresses using keystone correction only as a last resort. If you are like me as a projector noob, it's a bit intimidating not knowing if you are setting it up correctly. We will learn in the forums and on the net; I love learning about technology which is new to me and get obsessive enough ( in a good way) to continue searching till I find the answers to my questions. As for my own setup, I continue to project onto a large piece of blackout cloth fixed to the wall. It's not exactly an elegant solution, but not entirely tacky either.
