Those that have been on this forum for awhile (and know me), know that I've been wanting and asking about a projector for years. Especially Neil Joseph, he always picks with me about not having a projector. Well yesterday was the day, it arrived and I was ecstatic!! I'm building my screen today and painting it today, and I can't wait to get off work!!! I hooked the Panny 500 up to my hd box to see how well it looked, and WOW. This thing is awesome right out of the box, and on a wall no less!!! Very, very bright, and the colors were awesome. I can't wait to mount it and calibrate it. I was one of those who was afraid to go FP because I was afraid of losing the quality of picture I was used to from a rptv (crt). But if what little I saw on the wall was any indicator, I'm going to be a happy camper!!!!!!
