I work for an A/V dealer/installer. But unfortunately only sell 3 projectors Yamahas lpx500 and dpx1000 and the sharp xvz10000u. I may eventually get the LPX500.(even at my cost they are still out of my price range right now.) But I went to see the PLVZ1 at projectus (who were great by the way) armed with Minority Report, A.I., Jurassic Park 3,Lord of the rings, and Ice Age. Minority Report and A.I. black levels and Ice Age for screendoor. But Im in a hurry so ill keep it as short as possible Im pretty much sold it handled these dvds pretty well and at sizes varying from 85 - 100 inches at viewig distances of 8-15 feet. The actual unit was larger and built better than i thought it was going to be. they just had a cheap interlaced player hooked up to it via component but it still looked pretty damn good. Good color saturation as you would expect from LCD as displayed by Gimlis close up face shot right when he faces balins tomb. I think the Black levels were a lot better than I expected as seen in the bike forest chase scene in A.I. PLVZ1 did handled all but the very very deepest details in that scene. (ones you probably wouldnt even pay real attention to if enjoying the movie.) The screen door test was done on all movies ... especially Ice age. Just barely a touch of defocus got rid of it without softening of the picture. I like using that test on Gandalfs hair in balins tomb when hes reading the book. and in most close face shots. Or Ice Age's bright scenes. I tested some scenes on very good demos Like ATOC. But I wanted to serve it the hardest ones first. I thought 1.5X screen width wouldve been too close But I thought it handled well. 2x time screen width from a 8 foot widescreen will give you a sharp clean immersive FILMLIKE image. That definately rivals any commercial venue. I tried the ptl300u panny and it looked comparable, didnt justify 400 bucks for it or my extra patience for saving up for it. Im upgrading in 1-2 years anyway. All tests were first impressions from an uncalibrated PLVZ1 and Panny PTL300U out of the box. Fed with an interlaced dvd player. The projectors I do have most experiences with were the three I stated earlier up above. Im gonna be stoned to death for saying this here but, unless its a 4x or up colorwheel on a dlp, full motion vieo sucks. I never was able to convince myself that the rainbows were not there. My content changes so damn much. I can only watch Toy Story or Monsters Inc. so much. LCD was so much more comfortable to watch it was like putting a warm blanket in front of my eyes. It has a classic film like appearance to it. I enjoy my movies most with others and a lot of my friends are in the industry and I would hate for them to walk out of the room or complain during a movie. I dont think rainbows are a matter of seeing them or not I think its an inevitable. I was rambling for a little bit there and sorry for the sentence structure. But all in all im buying this thing. great value.Great Warranty. Ill update my website with the new gear and projector as soon as it all comes together. I am oh so very excited. MOVING TO THE BIG LEAGUES WITH A LITTLE LEAGUE PRICE YEAHOO!!!
