What would you want to hear? that it's NOT good for the price? j/k
It is a good unit regardless of the price, but when you factor in how much less it is than the LG, it really has a great value proposition, ESPECIALLY if you want to use the audio.
Before I was told about the push-back on release date, my coworkers were talking about how this "better not be another JVC debacle" but I don't think it will. Besides, the new JVC units were worth the wait
From what I understand the units are already here in the USA and are going through firmware upgrades before they ship. There is nothing "wrong" with them; Optoma just wants to have a bulletproof launch especially since they are compensating heavily for people to leave reviews on their site.
I'm not sure if they are going to require reviewers to provide proof of purchase ("verified reviews") but if they do it's a nice rebate for those who pre-ordered.
Optoma will be posting more details regarding that soon as well.
