    Picked this gem up today. Open box item with ZERO hours on the bulb. They had 2 open..one they used...one they were supposed too. Anyway...saved 3k off retail after tax and Extened warranty....Wich will cover a bulb if it goes out during the warranty period! The warranty was less then a new bub... so had too. Wont have it hooked up for a while. HT room still under construction. Think I'm gonna have to do a "on the wall DIY" screen...

    I saw those at Bjorn's last week. Good price. What stopped me was the fact that the DVI is NOT HDCP compliant. Major deal breaker. It's actually made by Epson (TW100).

    A gray or silver/gray DIY screen will work well with this unit. Congratulations on the PJ and post some pics soon.

    Well...I'm going to run componant anyway... and the price was just too good for this unit.
