This is the second projector I've tried out. The first was a Mitsubishi xd3000u that I had to return do to rainbow issues. I only had a hour to make up my mind on the HC3 in order to receive a full refund so I didn't mess around with fine tuning it. I had the projector 15' from the wall, and I was sitting 12' from the screen. I put in LOTR: Fellowship and the picture looked pretty good, which it should since it's a reference quality disc. When I put in some lower quality discs/signals the problems really came through. I put in a copy of Elite's Eaten Alive by Tobe Hooper. Pixelation and graininess was a constant. I also noticed lots of jagged edges in the picture, especially around people's fingers. I was like the projector was struggling to hold the image together. I was half expecting it to break apart into a thousand digital shards. This was disappointing, but when I put in a lasers I almost puked. I put in the Definitive Edition of Star Wars, a pretty high quality disc. When I watched this same disc with the xd300u it looked almost as good as any DVD I own, but in the HC3 the image was terrible. I tried both s-video and composite inputs and there was no difference. The image looked like what you'd see from a VHS copy of a poor cable signal. It looked horrible, plus the fan's loud. Now I'm faced with a dilemma. I believe LCD is an inferior technology and don't want to invest in it, but with DLP's I see rainbows, and I don't want to spend $4000. So I'm sitting here clueless without a TV. Any ideas about what I can do? Other projector options besides CRT?
