Just a quick comment on TzungILin's list above. While there are some good points in comparing the feature set of the H77 with the BenQ 8720, keep in mind that the 8720 is actually direct competition to the Darkchip 3 H79, not the H77.
Yes, PE8720 is a direct head-to-head competitor to H79.
That is why I wrote in my post that PE8720 is almost the same as H77 except for Darkchip3 and power lens shift. What I meant was that PE8720 also has 8-segment color wheel, 10-bit green processing, lens shift, power zoom/focus, Corsina lens high end features like the H77 does, which PE8700 is lacking.
Hence, H77 is a lot closer in features to PE8720 than PE8700+. Of course, Darkchip3 creates a difference in image quality.
I still see a difference in image quality between H77 and PE7700, PE7700 is bright and color is very accurate, but in terms of contrast ratio, black level, picture depth and color saturation, H77 throws an overall better image. Of course, everyone has different taste and opinion. For people who likes a bright image, PE7700 and SP7205 are two good choices, with PE7700 being more value.
