But I am really pleased with the quality of this unit. The 2D is great and bright, the colors looked a little off though, so I adjusted them to the above and like them much better now. The 3D is just fantastic, I liked it just fine right out of the box, but will try the above adjustments anyway.
I have it on a 5m hdmi cable. I have a panny bdt310, and a non-3d capable receiver, so I run video to the pj, and another hdmi from the blu ray player to my receiver and it works great. There is absolutely no delay whatsoever, perfectly synced sound from the get go.
I have it on a table 3 feet in front of me, and in case you are wondering about fan noise, in eco mode it is not bad at all. I tested it and with my 5.2 surround sound and it stops being an issue at -50DB and below´. At -45db you cannot hear it at all and that is 3 feet in front of me, YMMV though, but I think only those not on surround sound or who listen at less than -50db will find it an issue at all.
I do not even have a screen yet, it is on my white wall and it still looks awesome. A screen will make it that much better I am sure.
Some things that annoy me about the unit though too.
The lens cap moves the focus ring when you put it on or take it off, so you constantly have to refocus it. Not sure how you guys do that when it is on the ceiling...
It also runs pretty hot...the fan puts out some hot air. Enough so that my initial idea of keeping it right behind our heads behind the couch is out the window. The person to the right in front of it would be sweating after ten minutes...If you are planning something similar, then make sure it is a couple feet above your heads so you don't get chapped.
That is really it, just some niggly issues, but overall, the thing is nothing short of awesome, and at that price, a real steal. Benq has hit a huge homer with this one...if you are on the fence about this, don't be! Pull the trigger, you won't regret it!
