I pre-ordered it at that price, so I guess I don't think it's overpriced after considering all the competition in the $1000-$2000 range. Yes, I'm aware that there are higher resolutions available and that "dude, HD is the future". Of course, it all depends on how it actually performs, so I have 30 days to try it out from Crutchfield with free return shipping.

Actually, the X1 at native doesn't scale - it crops off a few lines on the top and bottom when it does 16:9.

The 4805 is the only true 16:9 budget DLP. 4x wheel is probably much better than 2x (I couldn't see any rainbows on a 5x, albeit a $12k one at the HT shop, but I see quite a few on my X1 in white & black scenes).
