I posted a more complete set of impressions on avsforum, but here's a summary: - DVD looks better than it does on my Tosh 42H81. - HDTV looks very good (not as detailed as the Tosh, but subjectively better) - Homeade blackout screen ($30) works great, so I can delay the purchase of a prefabricated screen for a while - Brightness was impressive: still viewable with the dimmer-switch set to 1/2. - Power cord: terrible piece of crap that should never have been shipped with the X1. It becomes disloged with the slightest jostling. - Rainbows: I've seen a couple, but they don't stress me out. - Other: I felt slightly queasy after watching it...I don't know if this is just getting used to the large screen, a side-effect of the rainbows, or the fact that I didn't eat dinner yesterday. I'll have more impressions as I watch with more scrutiny. I plan on watching The Two Towers in the next couple of days, and I'll watch the picture with extra scrutiny. I'll also watch my first HD football game this weekend -- this is the "other" big test next to DVD watching that my X1 must pass. By the way I'm projecting a 94" diagonal image, the projector is set to 16:9 mode, and it's projecting on a 98" 16:9 screen. I'm sitting about 11 feet away, and couldn't see screendoor until I was around 7-ft away.
