I will say that when I have contacted the V...A (about a screen) people they were helpful and knowledgable, also willing to admit if they didn't know something and refer me somewhere else. I talked to Mark there, x250.
I went with a different forum sponsor last week, and it arrived promptly, no problems. They even gave me some off on the expedited shipping. So far from what I see everyone is basically charging the same amount (froogle it), and I don't have any insight on "which is better".
Offhand, I liked the rep better at the V...A place
More direct, helpful and knowledgable.
I bought the 3-year bulb warranty which you have to decide on when you order the PJ. The other warrenty (extended manufacturers) you can order for like 90 days after, so I haven't decided yet. That one does not cover the bulb, but does cover the rest of the unit.
I do have some misconvergence, but you can't tell unless you go to a white/black test pattern and then stand 1 foot away from the screen, and look at say a black line or cross on a white background. Doing this shows some red on one side, some blue on the other. Also some green/yellow vertically maybe. I was initially disappointed when I discovered this, but I hear it's pretty much ubiquitous and I can't tell from any type of seating distance at all.
I also see a slight reddish-ness on a flat white image on the left hand side. Both things I only saw because I was looking for them after reading the projectorreviews.com review, and I absolutely don't notice it except on a purely white image.
