Summary: Don't be fooled by the falling prices, the MSRP was a little over 4k dollars when this projector was new. It will certainly out compete other entry level 720P projectors. The contrast is phenomenal, and the projector is really a light cannon.
Summary: This is a very bright, very crisp PJ. I am blown away every single time I have this unit turned on to watch a movie. I have my PS3 and Oppo DVD player hooked up for DVD viewing and the picture is amazing!
Summary: Personal Experience Have had this for a little less than a month. With the limited internet coverage for this projector, I was hesitant to purchase. At the sub-$1500 prices out there, this PJ cannot be beat. This PJ should especially appeal to those requiring a short throw.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for a month now and it is the tops in my book. After even looking at some of the new 1080p, forget the other 720p, they cannot match this projector's image quality and feature set. Marantz has surely done the job right. Problems None
Summary: Personal Experience I was searching for a quality PJ for under $3000.00. I reviewed and demo many and was luck to find this at $2500.00. This projector has an incredibly natural picture with lots of 3D pop and excellent black levels. It is extremely well made and constructed.
