Thanks for the compliments
- Can you see any SDE from that seating distance?
No. SDE is hardly visibile even from very close-up. I hate SDE and after comparing many different projectors I picked this pj because it was the best in all the comparisons I made about this specificly
- Have you noticed any RBE from the 8720 at all
No, I havent noticed any RBE on it
- Do you notice the projector noise when you watch a movie?
At 23-25 db's (depending on mode selected) you would be hard pressed to find a pj that is quieter then this one.
If you can tell by the pictures of my set-up the pj is mounted practically directly overhead of our seats in the second row and you dont hear it at all during the movie unless the movie is dead silient.
Honestly I think my blu-ray player that sits much further away in the room is louder then the pj.
- Are you running your HD DVD/Blu-Ray at 60 Hz or 24/48 Hz?
When you make your purchase, make sure it has the latest firmware for it otherwise you'll have to send your projector to the dealer in order to have it updated.
If I can help any more just ask or PM me anytime.
Actually I may be upgrading sometime in the next few months to Benq's 1080p model to go with my HD DVD & Blu-ray player so I may be putting this projector up for sale in the sale section of the forum.
Depending when you need it by and if your interested let me know and maybe we can work something out.
