Great color and contrast, really a very good looking picture, even at factory settings. I made sure to set it to Film and Eco mode on the lamp.
Very bright, as advertised. Almost too bright for my 95% light controlled basement. The 5% is my open stairwell at the back wall that has some light leak from the kitchen. Any tips on further toning it down without messing with gamma would be appreciated.
Small and light. This thing is tiny compared to the Mitsubishi HC6500.
It has 3D. I don't have my glasses yet, but 3D is a nice new toy for me to play with, not the main attraction.
I can see some rainbow effect, but it is slight, and by no means a deal breaker. Much better than the old Infocus X1, as you'd expect. I can see it in very high contrast graphics, like the full white Oppo logo on its black background. For blu rays, I have to be moving my head, as I blink, in a fast action or high contrast scene. So basically you have to look for it.
It's much noisier than the HC6500. It's livable, but a hush box would really be nice.
The biggest drawback for me, and this might well be a deal breaker, is how damn noisy the picture gets during any material with heavy film grain. I have a lot of older films in my collection. If there are any settings I can change to minimize the sparkling grain, something that is not an issue with my LCD projector, let me know. Just as an example, the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Vol 1, shows a great deal of grain noise, some might call it mosquito noise, in all the cartoons I watched. Skyfall on the other hand, looked amazing.
So I'm not sure what to do, and I especially hope that the grain noise can be dealt with via configuration tweaks.
