Well I finally got my HS50 last night after about 6 weeks of waiting!! Over these 6 weeks I had plently of time to regret my decision at buying one, as many people were saying they had problems and were dissapointed with various things. One major thing people said was the light output on the HS50 was too low, well not for me!! I tried alot of the settings out last night, and it never seemed too dim, this was projecting on a cream coloured wall!! Also people were saying that it wasn't a huge step up from other projectors they had owned. These comments distract from the fact this is one great projector. Its a massive step up from the 2 projectors I've previously owned (a 4:3 data projector and before that a projector that had a built in video player - thats right V-I-D-E-O!!) The detail on this thing is awesome! I know all my comments will be a bit rose tinted because I only got it last night and was just totally in awe for the 2 hours I spent playing with it. Also I went to sleep and dreamt about it all night as well!! One thing I thought was superb was the ease of setup (what setup??) I turned it on, plugged in my computer and it found the signal, then I pointed the PJ at wall and used the lens shift to get it where I wanted - hey presto!! And lens shift - what an invention. I read about it previously, but I had no idea just how much you could shift it!! I wanted to post this so that people who have this model on order for a long time (like I did) won't start to stress about their decision. I'm quite sure you'll be more than happy with it.
