"Fantastic for ease-of-use"4.5 starson by makiato
Pros: Integrated DVD, optical out, good video color, cool design
Cons: Hot (to the touch, shouldn't heat up a room), mediocre computer display, resolution (for computer)
Summary: I think CNET has gone far too detailed into the review of this unit. I have watched several movies on mine and have never been compelled to adjust the "True Vivid" settings. For movies, people and things appear to have very natural colors. So far I've only found it necessary to change the color mode and brite mode (my favorite is sRGB with brite mode off).
I haven't noticed ANY rainbow effect with mine, and my last projector was an LCD. The resolution doesn't matter for most sources of video, it compresses/expands nicely.
The offset lens projection (which projects up) is odd, but just get used to it! Not a big a deal.
The only downfall I've noticed is it does not show a very good computer display. Color reproduction not very nice, small resolution. Obviously, it was intended for movie viewing - and that's what it's best at!
