Summary: Personal Experience Bought as refurb unit from Toshiba direct ... excellent price at over half off what others were charging (less than $2000 for a $3500 + unit!) Unit arrived like new with new lamp! Could be brighter, but word on the street (sellers) is that DLP unit specs for lumens is slighly exagerated. Very good in lower light or low lite room. No screendoor effect as in LCD. DLP could be some issue for action scnes but acceptable.
