I have no idea why this review is saying the brightness is 30% higher than the HW50ES. It certainly isn't even 0% higher than the HW50ES. Both are rated at 1700 lumens and both calibrate approximately the same.

Game Mode introduces only26ms of lag time

There is absolutely no input lag on this projector. 26 ms is more than enough; not 60 as the reviewer says!!!!!

This projector has 26ms of input lag, good enough for serious gaming. The reviewer is wrong about this information. So no need for any other projector! ;)
