    Uses it just against a white wall, which gives good results if you can darken something. The blackness is very good, there is not much light that ends up on the wall when it is video-black. however, it is my first projector so can not really compare. the sound level is quite low ... hear it only a little when it is completely silent with the low-lamp mode. with the light-lamp mode it sounds slightly more.

    the projector lacks a keystone for skew adjustment ... you have as i 2.4 meters to the ceiling so you need a roof bracket with a pile where the projector comes down a bit (especially if you only have about 3-4 meters to the picture). so one can get the picture in just the right height with lens shift and not get a skewed picture.

    should try to give more reviews with canvas when one is purchased.

    UPDATE:
    Using a DNP Supernova cloth is completely satisfied

    Have a lot of difficulty understanding the less good grades here. Switching from an Epson TW3500 which I was very pleased with when I bought it seven years ago. Five lights later it smoked and it became a Sony HW45. Now realize that I have deceived myself for several years. This shows a cruel picture that strikes my old projector on my fingers in all respects. But not only that either. Have looked at a number of projectors and had some homes for testing lately. Nobody up to this price range has been close to this image. Outstanding straight through! Now I can only hope that it can serve me for as many years as my previous projector.

    As the hypad unfortunately! Very bad tightening (even after the panel correction and calibration) compared to LCD projectors within the same price range. T.o.m my old Sanyo PLV-Z3000 from 2008/2009 have been far more sharpness and life in his image and much better image interpolation technology (equalizing for not picture should shake / hacked by example rörleser and pans in movies mM). If you sit further away from the image seen not as much, but I like being close to the image. I have dedicated myself a lot to calibrate the image and even after all possible adjustments, the picture is not comparable to a good LCD projector in other than the contrast and black level, which is really good on this projector. It also features low input-law, about 21 ms, and is therefore good for quick games. It may be my gaming projector, simply, it will be a better projector to everything else. How sad that the projector progress has been so slow since 2009! The noise level is not good, even in eco mode. There is an annoying buzzing, rather than a low and soft murmur.

    Would give a 9 if it was not so easy as much of the electronics. It might go as a DOA!
