I don't know about other forum members, but I have heard enough about rainbows. When I was looking at this forum and others trying to decide what projector to buy everyone kept talking about rainbows. I almost didn't buy the X1 based on what I read. Thank God I didn't listen. I mean I literally hate LCD technology. The X1 was wonderful I fell in love from the first time she was fired up. Point at hand, rainbows do not bother me maybe I am lucky, maybe not. If I were to shake my head back and forth or up and down violently I can see them. Who in the hell watches tv like that????? Yes I have seen them but only once or twice. Other than that I have racked up some hours watching the X1 at my house, and a friends. I do not see rainbows constantly, I think people look for problems with rainbows. Rainbows are an exagerated problem propogated by people that have obsessive compulsive disorder. I am not saying they don't exist, I am just saying they are minimal to none. I have had more than a few people other than myself watch the proj. and no complaints whatsoever. I know some people will hate to admit what I am saying. If anyone reading this is on the fringe of an X1 or other DLP product all I can say is just give it a chance.
