    The Infocus 425 is a "Color Wheel" 700 lumen SVGA DLP projector.
    It has good contrast ratio (400:1) and, due to the fact that it's a DLP, there is no "pincushion effect".
    The colors, however, cannot be adjusted on this projector. (This is true of all "Color Wheel" DLP projectors.)
    This is a good projector, but I wouldn't pay more than $1500 for it. (Even less than that if there's more than 500 hours on the 1000 hour bulb.)
    These days you can obtain a brand-new 1200 lumen 350:1 to 400:1 contrast ratio LCD projector of comparable resolution that would provide much better (and adjustable) colors for around $2500. The LCD projector would have the "pincushion effect", but IMO the brighter image and the fact that it's more versatile make up for that particular defect. (And I've found that if you're at least five feet away from a 80"-110" screen you won't notice the "pincushion".)
    Hope this helps!
    Joseph
