After looking at several projectors and weighing out "value" I went with this one. I was closely looking at the Epson 3500 but couldn't justify the price difference. I wanted something that was full HD, could do 3D and had good reviews for reliability. This checked all the boxes, I had this setup in my basement so window light is less of an issue. I have this setup projecting on a 135" elite screens pull down screen. At 135" picture looks great and it a really nice home theater, now I just need to work on dialing in the sound for my setup. I have read reviews complaining about the rainbow effect, I will admit that I can see it. It is not a deal breaker but it is there. I think the projector is quiet and there are a lot of picture settings that I need to play with better optimize the picture. No regrets here, great value!
