Great news, I hope the rest of us see them soon...


I think you ordered at about the same time I did, that has me a little worried. Borderfree is going to look into my order again tomorrow.

Well after playing with my 150 for a few hours I am totally impressed! And this is just displaying onto a bedsheet.


I'm throwing a 100" diagonal image and it looks great! Jaggies that were noticeable on my 50" 4:3 RPTV are now absent. Oddly enough I didn't find the difference between progressive and interlaced that big.


I also ran into the chroma bug on my Panasonic RP91 with my Tarzan disc - which I didn't realize until later. Since this was my first stab at running progressive I initially thought I had done something wrong in the setup and spent a hour trying various things to correct it. Trying another disc with no problems made me remember the RP91 bug.


In progressive mode do the colours tend to be a bit more muted than normal mode? Hopefully I can correct this when I do some calibrations with my AVIA disc.


Fan and wheel colour noise are quite tolerable at this point - it was sitting on top of the coffee table in front of me. I'll move it underneath tonight and see how that sounds.


Being a projector neophyte I guess my eye is not yet trained to properly assess the picture. This will probably change over time as I become discerning. Right now though - I am just soaking in the beautiful picture this little sucker is putting out.


Thanks to everyone for the great info on this board in helping make this decision!!!

Lou,


Thanks for the quick review. How did you hook up the RP91? Did you use a VGA breakout cable or just regular s-video cable? Any ideas where I can buy a cheap VGA breakout cable in Toronto?


Just got confirmation from Borderfree last night that my order has cleared customs and on its way. Hopefully I will get it today or tomorrow. Can't wait...

Hi John.


I used a VGA breakout cable I purchased at Active Electronics on Gordon Baker in North York. It is just off of Victoria Park.
