I admittedly had some apprehension about going with this projector despite the positive reviews... thinking its value price correlates to low-end (I was looking in the under $1500 range). But I was just thrilled with the picture right out of the box - took very little tuning. I have zero regrets so far and get mesmerized every time I turn it on... I even watched the Bachelor with my wife because I couldn't walk away from the crisp picture on the screen.
For reference, I was upgrading from a fairly old Panasonic PT-AE900U projector... so anything was going to be better, but this has just a brilliant picture. I'll go for 4K on the next cycle.
I also purchased a Cheetah Mounts APMEB ceiling mount to go with the HD142X (as shown in the photo) - I posted a review for that if you'd like to see how they work together.
