As i posted before, unless there are substantial difference in menu options, specifically video calibration controls and/or unit turns out to be poorly designed (Qumi + focus issues), aesthetically speaking i am all over the Optoma ML-500, my upcoming new 500 lumens LED projector, hopefully...

It's my number 1 led projector. I was thinking about the Casio which is a lot brighter, but every reviewer gives it bad reviews.

That 30"~80" diagonal maximum screen size spec cannot be right, it doesn't even make sense considering that currently sold 250~300 lumens LED presentation pjs such as the LG HX350T are spec'd for screens up to 80" diagonal and these 500 lumens pjs should be considerably brighter.
My understanding is that they are recommended for screens up to 120" diagonal, although i'd imagine that a high-gain screen would help matters as well.
Looking at the picture, it could very well be that the rest of the spec sheet listing sizes up to 120" diagonal was simply cut off due to space limitations...
