"Great, but..."1.5 starson by biggnu
Pros: image quality excellent, quiet, remote good
Cons: big pain, will not allow the ASPECT chance function through HDMI. Cannot always prperly display 4:3 and some 16:9 content. This is intentional, but silly, and VERY annoying. Epson admits this, but has not addressed it. Settings confusing too.
Summary: A real shame that such a good box has what is apparently a software limitation so irritating. Try another maker, or complain to Epson BEFORE you buy, they might listen then.
Also, note that all Epson HD projectors are the same (according to Epson).
Finally, the pre-set colour modes are all different, but their "settings" are all the same, so it is virtually impossible to clone and modify, or bring closer these settings, which is very confusing. Fortunately, 2 of the presets are good for my purposes.
