Compared to its clones, the Optoma ML-500 and Acer K330, am i the only one who feels that the odd orientation of the control panel on the Viewsonic PLED-W500 scream "cheap Chinese aesthetic design" ? Why have it placed at such an odd angle ?

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. With my HP screen, I think its a good combo on a 120in screen

I message him about it has a hdtv projector and he said it won't give me the HD quality that I am looking for. And who knows if these 500 lumens will. I'm used to my Marantz for hdtv. I don't know, I'm not hoping for excellent HD with these led projectors but I want the best from these 500 lumen led projectors or the Casio. I was about to buy one of the casios about 3 times but every time I do, its always a new review that I come across. The owners of the Casio loves them, that's why I'm on the fence and waiting to hear about these clones compared to the casios.

I wonder if the PLED-W500 is able to handle screens above 80" size (focus?)? So far the spec is saying the size range is between 30 "to 80". My max screen is just 90" and yet out of the range.

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...

Anyone know what the light-source is? Is it the PT-54 driven to death, or the PT-120?
