    Anybody can give me opinions about it?

    Anybody has compared it to any other proyector? Is it better than LCD projectors?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Am I worrying too much about quality image? Is there really a big clear difference ( for eyes to note )?

    I personally haven't seen it, but the specs look reasonable. Unfortunately, Sony doesn't like giving contrast ratio specs, which, for home theater, is one of the most important considerations. Specs:

    Single Chip .7" DMD panel based(DLP)
    XGA native
    130 watt UHP bulb
    1000 ANSI lumens
    No DVI input
    Roughly $2800 in the US.
    Is it particularly cheap there in Barcelona compared with other projectors? In the US, there are definitely better choices for the money it seems.

    Thank you, Gabriel. I've got a specs sheet: 680/1 contrast ratio,DVI input.I've seen some specs saying 3 DMD pannels,one DLP...may be is incorrect? Do you know if this DVI input really gives a better image?

    The best price here in Barcelona is $3500.

    I've seen it...is very lightweight and has memory stick.

    It would be an absolutely incredible purchase if it was a 3 panel unit. However, those do not sell for under $20k US so. If you click on "specifications" in that link I provided, you'll see it's a single XGA DMD panel.
    Alas, 3 panel DLP units aren't expected to drop under $10k for a long time still.
    I stand corrected, it does have a DVI-D input:

    DVI does indeed give a better image. I've found this to definitely be the case with my projector, and many others concur.
    I have not seen the contrast ratio published anywhere, but if it's 680:1 (on/off, most likely), that's very good.
