What a great projector!

by Harry on 9/13/2010

This projector is great and would probably satisfy all but the most OCD users. I haven't found anything I don't like about it. It replaced a Panasonic AE700U which blew a bulb very prematurely. Of course there is no comparison with the Epson's 1080p picture quality. In selecting this projector, I switched at the last minute from the Vivitek H1080FD. I couldn't be certain that I would be happy with the Vivitek 3x color wheel flashing at me continuously - and I couldn't get any acceptable return terms online, and couldn't see it in a retail store. Too much risk for the small bump in price to a substantially better projector. I am very happy I upgraded to the LCD. You won't be disappointed!
