I agree, they have never looked that nice all of them but tbh once mounted on the ceiling you tend to forget they are there...

Unfortunately in my small space my pj is on a home made stand and is very prominent in the room. Right now I have a Z5 which IMHO is the best looking PJ out there. The Panny is gonna look UUUUUGLYYYYY

Looks are not always everything, but if I was not going to mount on the ceiling then I may have second thoughts on leaving it out on show, luckily mine will be mounted on the ceiling so not too much of an issue, with the performance that this new unit is going to offer and I have already seen excellent feedback for it, it makes it excellent VFM...I had a Sony Pearl as my last PJ and that was probably one of the best looking imo...there is just so many PJ to choose from now

I am a DLP guy and I would have to have this projector on my short list if I was shopping for a projector right now.

I prefer LCD over the DLP variant as the last DLP I owned I suffered from the Rainbow effect which can be slightly annoying, for me it is either the Panasonic PT-AE4000 or the new JVC PJ, but the Panasonic does seem to be better VFM...

What was the color wheel speed on the DLP that allowed you to see rainbows? A higher speed helps. Both of my projectors are 5x speed. There are some 2x out there and a lot of people see rainbows on them.

Everything I read about this projector makes me want one. Sadly until I finish the basement there is no place for a projector

Hopefully one of my customers will want one so I can play with it!

I really like the auto aspect ratio for 2.35:1 and 16:9. Of course it is loaded with features and the price is just incredible.
