Summary: I RMA'd the unit, taking forever, no TV. Just got notice today it's shipped.. but why not make it a quick delivery? It's going to take like a week it says, just to get here. Oh well. I'll give an update after it comes back.

Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
Decent but at 4700 lumens I was expecting even better

Summary: In pursuit of the best outdoor cinema experience, I upgraded my deck top entertainment system recently to the EH500 to take advantage of the full 1080p 3D picture and extremely high 4700 lumen output. I was not disappointed.
