Well, I've had a bunch of projectors including all the DLP faves. I've raved about the Sharp clones, and I thought the Thumpered Plus UP1100 was the best of the bunch.


However, I was wrong. Grant Smyth, take a bow. The genuine LT85 (and I assume 150), has a siginficantly better picture than the clones. It is as good as the Thumpered Plus series, but with better brightness.


Even weirder, on mine the S-Video is great. Better than the Infocus 340, which was a major disappointment.


I thought the Vortex/NEC proprietary stuff was marketing.


Not on the evidence so far.


I'm very impressed.


Steve

Thanks Steve,


I have a bias and it is simply this - there's a ton of hype out there and it is easy to be impulsive. I am a great example - I see, I want, I buy. Problem is I have spent lots on money on items that were overpriced (relatively speaking)and not necessarily the best for my needs. I saw the NEC projector, when compared to several others, and I do mean several, as a bargain! Sure it has its liabilities, but if image is what you're after then this thing is a bargain!


I don't blame people for being cautious - My ego isn't so big that I assume everyone will follow me down some slippery slope without question. You have to see for yourself - your needs, your reality etc. are different from mine.


Cheers,


Grant

Steve, are you using a HTPC? I've been using UP1100 and UP880 series projector for a long time and the look excellent only when you I use a HTPC 72 Hz refresh and adjusting the the fine picture on projector to minimum ghost and max sharpness, use to be 78.

I would like to get an opinion from people using those projector (UP1100 and LT150) basically about the black level and contrast when connected to a PC. BTW I'm using a HTPC with the Mpact video board, after testing with many other video board, for me this gave me the best overall results .
