Well I just jumped back into the world of front projection. I will be pairing this projector with a 106" Draper gray fixed frame screen. I am pretty excited. My last PJ was a DIY screen and an Infocus X1. So this is a BIG jump. I actually paid the same amount for both projectors to give you an idea of how much the home projector market has changed. I debated getting another DLP or LCD unit and was not even looking at LCOS as they were beyond my budget. This baby was one of those "you might also be interested in these" sidebars. It is a beast at 22lbs but worth every ounce in my opinion.

I usually like to read product reviews beforehand and found the mother of all projector reviews here.

Two year later and this projector still blows me away. For the Olympics/Superbowl/Playoffs I switched over to SPORT mode. Pretty sure the lamp kicked into high-power. Just love it, no soap-opera effect, super blacks (grey screen helps), vivid colors, no blur, no rainbows.

I don't think they even make consumer SXRD projectors anymore. Might be time to look for a replacement bulb. Mine has < 1000 hrs on low-power mode.

Thanks 57. I meant to look into the SPORT mode to see what was being done. I find the advanced VIDEO adjustment menu is quite involved and I honestly don't know what some the settings do so I leave them at their default. If I recall one of the pro reviewers said that the out-of-box settings were pretty good. But a little tweaking couldn't hurt.

I have not seen any macroblocking but it could be due to my content.
