After 2 months of researching for a projector I finally chose this one.
Reasons: 1080p. Many projectors under $1,000 claim to be 1080p, but read the fine print and requirements and learn they're really not. I saw one for around $425, but says only if you use a certain cable or equipment you get the 1080p. Warranty... 2 years vs 1 year with the Optoma brand. Replacement lamp.. avg $175 vs over $250 for the Optoma. I've read if you want a versatile projector that does good with some outside light, you need at least 3,000 lumens. This one has it. Overall, when comparing with it's competitors, you just can't beat the quality, warranty, specs, reviews for the same price range. If you need a HDMI 1080p cable longer than 30 feet, go with Redmere technology from Monoprice dot com. I tried 2 different brands at 50feet and nothing came through. A bit pricy at around $65.00 for 40feet, but hey if you're gonna spend big bucks for a good quality projector, why not spend a bit more for cables that actually work!

What's just as good as the watching the Seattle Seahawks win? Answer: Watching it from my Viewsonic Pro 8300! AMAZING! Clear, crisp as would expect, simply awesome. Even IF the Hawks were a losing team this year, this projector is still a winner! No regrets.
