This projector is supposedly not available for sale online in the US. Must be a Best Buy/Magnolia agreement of some sort.

Also the MSRP is much higher than the current street price of $2499.98 at BB and less elsewhere.

Re: Mitsubishi HC6800 LCD Projector: Official Thread

I bought one of these a couple weeks ago at BB magnolia and have it setup and have been watching on a dark chocolate brown wall and its looks good on a less than desireable wall.

I am in the process of getting all my ingredients laid out for the scorpion N8 as it appears is the formula I will be using. Hopefully once done I can post some pictures up for all to see.

Re: Mitsubishi HC6800 LCD Projector: Official Thread

Well I have been watching my projector as my screen is about 80% done..4 coats of primer and 2 coats of scorpion (1 coat left) and let me tell you the picture is AMAZING!! I have only adjusted the colors slightly as my BD sears and munsil calibration disc will arrive tomorrow so that will be the final step.

I watch the Holiday at home special tonight on CBS at 8pm that was hosted by Faith Hill and the picture quality and colors were just jaw dropping!! I could see the fine hairs on her shoulders while she was singing!!

anyone looking for a projector in this price range has to check this out!! The unit is sooooooo quiet you cannot even hear it and the low lamp mode is perfect and puts out a great bright picture.

I am projecting a 125" diagonal screen with a 15'-2" throw and seating is at 12-12.5' feet away.

BD's look amazing with great clarity and color depth, gives an almost 3D look..the color field is that deep!!
