This is one awesome, beautiful, 1080p DLP projector. This is the one I should have bought to begin with. But I wanted to save a little money, so I bought the Benq W1000. The Benq did look very nice, except the rainbows. So far I put 10 hours on the HC3800 and it produces a great image. NO rainbows, VERY, VERY sharp, dark blacks and shadow detail, great colors and contrast, and very quiet in low power mode. In low, it's rated for 5000 hours also. The HC3800 is an upgrade in every single area from my Mits. HD1000. And there's a free bulb rebate until the end of March. DAMN, I sound like a Mits. salesman. Now I see why Projector Central and Projector Reviews loved it.
