I just installed my SP5000 last friday night.. I spent a ton of time with this projector over this weekend. Using the 76" Free Pull Down Screen. That screen is bigger than it needs to be vertically by pretty much, which is way cool as I still get a 66"+ 4:3 screen. I watch a ton of black and White old 4:3 material. 4:3 OAR you know. Laser discs viewed - Men In Black, Return Of the Jedi, Terminator2 (Pan and Scan), and Best Friends (Pan and Scan) I chose two of my best LD's, and one so so T2, and one real bad one best Friends. I wanted to check 4:3 performance as well as widescreen performance on them. The best two were religeous experiences (1st FP), The other two were still impressive enough for NTSC 4:3 fed to an HD Digital FP. HD Content - All the NFL Playoff Games (4 total), A couple of Jazz Concerts on PBS, My Local News is in HD off all things (several time slots of that as well), Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (BW Upconvert on the HD PBS Feed) Gottas love HD on a good large screen, the Black and White performance seemed very good to me as well. DVD (Scaled to 1080i on Component Video) - Finding Nemo, all three Lord Of The Rings, Ace Ventura When Nature Calls The DVD scaled by the player runnign component was the most impressive to me. I mean HDTV is supposed to look good, but what I am getting from my DVB318 is nearly as jaw dropping in all honesty. Probably some other stuff too. All I can say is, you would have to be a pretty darn serious videophile to want any better performance than is thing delivers at least at 76". Way beyond my expectations, which I thought were pretty high to start with, I actualy thought I was a bit of a videophile, but anybody not happy with this projector must be a real videophile which means I must not be for sure. A 4805 owner came over by the way for some HD, not that he thought it was better than his 4805 in general, but he did comment, on how great it was including the contrast with the room so bright. , he thought that was much better than his 4805. I had 7 people watching the later NFL game yesterday. I had to basically flood the room with light before performance dropped off to even a notice-able level. I'd give the projector, the highest of marks. The low price just puts it over the top in bang for buck as well.
