With regards to the comments re: sales, I'm betting Benq can't make these things quick enuff right now. It comes as no surprise that it's practically walking off the shelves, what with offering full HD and so very capable 3D at this price.
Just to confirm, I turned it on for a spell at work and checked, it was manufactured in April 2013 and it has Firmware V. 1.05. It also had a big finger smudge from a factory worker on the lens, but luckily on the outside so I just wiped it off. It looks like he had been eating egg rolls before he put the lid on.
And you are right, BenQ has hit an absolute home run with this projector. It will increase competition big time and it will be an overall win for the consumers.
In fact, before even considering this PJ, I was ready to upgrade to a max 47" Tv from my 32".
For a good tv at that size, you are going to pay way more than this PJ costs. So I opted for the PJ as I supspect many have done or will do. Now I will have a 100" 3D tv haha...
I have imported a lot of stuff to Germany from the US an other non EU countries, and the fees are usually equal to 19% (or your local sales tax) of the total value of the good being imported. I am not sure how it works for goods TO the US though
