I have now had the pleasure to play around with the H77 a couple of days. We connected it to my Pioneer 868dvi( in the us this one is called elite 59 something). we powered it up and and we thought: hmm very nice and low sound level! And then after a few minutes the internal fan shifted to a lower rpm! Wow, this is the most quiet projector I have ever NOT heard. Without the soundsystem on , we had to consentrate to hear a sound from it, and the frequency og the sound was very pleasant. First we calibrated it with DVE and then we run the usual test scenes. for blacklevel and dithering we use the opening scene from underworld. The black level from this unit is excelent and dithering was not visable from seating. you could see some if you went up to the screen, but so you can on any dlp. So the blacklevel is on par with action one MkII. For contrast we use The Rock chapter 16 when the marines comes up from the water with flashlights. very good contrast in this scene, but one click below the MkII in this area. Colors are exelent and on par with MkII. The onboard deinterlacer/scaler seems to be doing a good job. no big diferences feeding it a intelaced signal and feeding it a progressive signal. I have to take a closer look on the menues and the manual, and watch some more film, but this was my first impresion of the unit. btw this is a "beta" unit, and not the final release here in europe. Do I remember wrong or did someone mention in a post that there has been a software/firmware release? If so, can someone tell me what this release did?
feel free to ask questions, I was lucky enough to keep this unit until monday.
