Summary: Personal Experience I upgraded from the X1 to the 5700. My first reaction viewing 480p was it seemed more film like,the color over all more true to life.The main reason I wanted to upgrade was so I could use my upconverter dvd player,DVI..Upconverted 1080I is Awesome......$1350 refurbish.
Summary: Personal Experience I have now had the projector for 7mths. I am unable to make comparisons with other models but I was impressed with the picture quality. The colours are natural and rich. I was able to set the projector up with ease and found remote control easy to use.
