(Frank456 comments from avsforum) ' The 600 epson is one heck of a projector. Reps from our company have already seen this projector in action over in asia. 2 members of our sales team ( both are hometheater fanatics and are DLP owners ) have had demos of the tw600 and this is what was said: Contrast ratio is a huge leap over comparable 720p LCD units on the market right now. Fill factor improvements are remarkable. ( This is coming from a person who owns the sharp XV-Z12000), a highly regarded high end dlp with a calibrated contast ratio of over 3600-1 ( advertised at 5000-1 uncalibrated ). Bright and punchy with excellent color reproduction and intensity. Great scaling capabilities. The major advances in LCD technology in the last 2 years had never ceased to amaze me. No rainbows, no headaches, no eyestrain, heck- no problem. Best part of all is the continuing low price for the performance factor that LCD projectors are showing. Oh and by the way, epson continues to under-rate there contrast ratios as a measured 6000-1 was the result of our techs findings. ( This is with ACCURATE test equipment ). Rumors of CR ratings over 7500-1 could not be confirmed so it remains to be seen what reviewers will find once the projectors find there way into capable hands. Boy do I love working in this field '
