Summary: Very good quality video and quiet operation. I chose this projector for the brand, which I have a lot of experience with, and I needed a shorter throw distance to fill a 100" screen. The 3800 lumens is plenty bright for my living room system. If you're looking for third party rs-232 control, the ASCII code is readily available and easy to program. Of course, Amazon service and pricing is tough to beat. Highly recommended.
