Can't believe this projector hasn't got its own thread. from all the reports it sounds like a watershed projector that the average man might be able to afford without remortgaging his wife. http://www.projectorcentral.com/projector_news121807.htm i have just sold my aging epson EMP 74 (with a contrast ratio of 800!) and really would love a 1080p projector. the 1080UB sounds like the perfect fit - but I cannot see where to import one from. any ideas? a newb would appreciate enlightment - impressions or opinions of the projector welcomed.
