I got mine about two weeks ago but only got around to installing the screen etc last weekend (what with my pesky sister's wedding getting in the way - bah!). But it was worth the wait - awesome! Yeah its not perfect - but I for one am done with spending multiple 1000s on Av gear. But for £900 plus about 75pence per movie (based on useful lamp life) this is a must buy for anyone who has dreamt of having a `proper` cinema :) Now just need to get a Bluray player so I can watch some more up-to-date HiDef stuff (only my poor old Tosh HD-DVD to play with at the mo).

Was'nt the infocus x10 the first full HD DLP for less than a grand?

Budget PJ's is certainly something Optoma are good at. I've had my Optima HD65 for about 18 months now, only cost about £430 from Dixons. Not a 1080p, but still produces great images. Now looking on EBay looks like I could sell it for more than I bought if for.. :), so the question is would the Extra resolution be worth an extra £500, I beleive both of these are Darkchip 2, so I assume blacks would be about the same.

this seems to be exactly the same as the hd200x which sells for £799 on amazon and play saving an extra £100.
