enjoy the projector, that's a heck of a bargain for a model that's similar in performance to the expensive VW90 that was out just a few years ago.
I saw you posted that link in the Sharp 30K thread and I used it last night as my HTPC is connected to my projector through my Receiver. I saw no issues at all with focus uniformity on any part of the screen. As I said earlier, not as sharp as my Optoma, but definitely sharp.
What I did notice is that I like viewing PC text better on the HC5. The higher contrast makes the text "pop" more against a white background. I will also say this, but not sure how to phrase it..... there is a lot of DLP-style "pop" to the image from this projector. I watched the beginning of "Nothing to Lose" with Tim Robbins last night. There are bright colors in the titles at the beginning and there was a real deep contrast to the colors that was not there when I re-watched it afterward on the Optoma. I had to turn on the Optoma Brilliant Color (or whatever Optoma calls it) to get the same effect, but that screwed up the colors after the movie came in.
Part of it could be calibration, but there is "something" pleasing there... somehow reminds me of the Christie DLP projector in my nearest cinema (just opened- state of the art projection). Please take this with a grain of salt, but I said something about it reminds me of it, not that it is better, as good as, etc.
Have to be careful people are not posting that I said this PJ is a Christie killer.
