Ok, so my initial impressions of this pj are very good, the more I use it, the more I really like it. let's start by the feature list. 1080p 120hz native. will accept 4k 60hz hdr signals. 16ms gaming lag, 3d and 3400 lumens. The contrast is ok, it's what I've come to expect from the sub $700 range of projectors, entry level. this pj is pretty sharp all the way across and top to bottom. there is definitely no washed out pic, maybe the others got bad pj's, I'm not sure. 3d is very bright with no crosstalk. gaming lag is pretty non existent. the pj is very bright. I can tell it is not an rgbrgb color wheel. the colors are punchy and bright, just maybe not quite the richness of an rgbrgb wheel, but close. for the price and features this thing is an absolute steal. This pj if you are a gamer or 3d fan has got to be at the top of your list. I've watched ready player one in 3d along with ghostbusters, played games in 2d and 3d. I did not see any crosstalk or flickering. this pj really is great, I'd put it definitely in the top bang for the buck category. the hdr is pretty good as well, maybe a little bit deceiving on a dark scene with bright hdr highlights, it looks very good and contrasty. If anyone is looking for a first pj to break into home theatre, this is a very good one to start with. I have a vivitek hk2299 also which is an rgbrgb color wheel, so that has a little bit deeper color. That is to be expected. The colors are still bright and punchy on the hd27hdr. I am really really enjoying this pj so far, and have had several pjs over the years.There are a ton of settings on this pj, So many settings, probably all the optoma fans know and are accustomed to. I do like this pj a lot. here are some pics. They aren't the best pics but you can get the idea. this pj is set to out of the box settings, I've tweaked nothing so far. A couple of the pics look blurry, thats my shaky hands holding my phone. not the pj. I'll maybe add more tonight. One last thing, I had the uhd60 and the rainbows where so bad I had to return the pj. I have not noticed rainbows but so slighlty, with this pj on a black screen with white text. So very good with no rainbows also. Someone pointed out the noise this thing makes. It has a high pitched whistle that is irritating when theres no sound playing. It's not noticeable if sound is playing.
