I don't have any experience with this projector, but I would be interested in any reviews as well! I'm also looking at the Optoma 755. I may be able to demo them side by side in the next few weeks, if so I'll post back here about it.

Mark, is there a place in Austin where one can demo the Optoma?

I'm in touch with a place calleg Padgitt's that has a main office in Waco and a branch in Austin. They said the Sharp rep was going to be there on the 21st with a demo PG-20MX(A?) at about 2:00pm. Unfortunately I have orientation for my new job that day (doh!) so I can't make it. They also have the Optoma 755 in their catalog. I'm supposed to get in touch with Jeff from Padgitt's to set up a demo.

If someone can test the new sharp:

Please check, if it can handle 720p and Pal progessive / 576p.

Sharp says, PAL is not supported, but maybe it will work.

As I know, the Sharp has a 3x speed RGBW color wheel.

Do you see any rainbows?
