Summary: At low lamp mode, it's a nicely quiet projector, which tipped us into buying this model over others -- but it helps to have a darkened room or a high gain screen. High lamp mode is significantly noisier, but isn't much brighter. Good zoom and adequate lens shift for ease of placement. Good color, but you might have to play around with the gamma setting to find what works for you. So-so black levels with the auto-iris off.
