Summary: I am very picky when it comes to projectors because my first one was a Sony VPL-HS10 which at the time was better than any other projector I had ever seen. A few years ago, it stopped functioning and there wasn't a replacement worth buying. I know because I purchased and returned 3 of them before I finally said I'd wait for 3D. When I decided to get a 3D projector, I was convinced that I was going with the Sony because I had such good luck with the last one.
Summary: Through a period of time, it feels good. Color is perfect Great projector...easy to set up (although it had limited picture adjustments, so you need a good place for it). Great image. I'm projecting it on a 150" screen in dedicated light-controlled room. EXCELLENT 3D...better then I've ever seen (including IMAX). Only real disappointment is that it does not play 1080p24 3D.
Summary: This review will rely heavily on comparison to my previous experiences with the Optoma HD20. I don't have experience with other projectors, so this is pretty much my only reference point. My review might be ignorant on a number of issues, but all I know is what I do and don't like based on my personal experience with the two projectors.
Not a flexible projector. Mounting can be a nightmare
25 August 2011
Summary: I bought this projector with lot of excitement to watch 3d in my 120 screen. According to pro reviews, this projector got 5 star for its well handling of all 4 3d formats and bang for your buck. But I didn't find it that impressive even as a 2d projector compare to my old Panasonic PT4000U. My big disappointment came when I tried to mount this projector in my ceiling.
Affordable and Uncompromised 1080p 3D movie experience

10 August 2011
Summary: I wanted a big screen like a movie theater, and wanted to utilize all of 1080p, and also full 3D while also be able to play 720p 3D games. This one has the best street price out there by a long shot at around $3K. The concern from reviews were 1) not flexible in positioning (e.g., keystone doesn't work in 3D mode), 2) projection size versus distance, and 3) not bright enough. My setup is a 14.5 x 12 room.
Summary: Personal Experience I'm using it on a DIY 150" screen in a light controlled room. The image is excellent. Yes, it's a little dark from the glasses, but you can up the contrast to make up for it. 3D is Stunning, better then my local IMAX theater. The IMAX promo logo on Hubble 3D actually had me grad the sides of my chair thinking I could fall into the picture. Bummed it does not support the 1080p24 that DirecTv uses for it's PPV 3D.
Summary: Great projector...easy to set up (although it had limited picture adjustments, so you need a good place for it). Great image. I'm projecting it on a 150" screen in dedicated light-controlled room. EXCELLENT 3D...better then I've ever seen (including IMAX). Only real disappointment is that it does not play 1080p24 3D. This is the format DirecTV uses for it's PPV 3D, so new releases like Tangled 3D and Tron Legacy 3D won't play.
