Saw a shoot out between these two projectors the other day in Richmond at Projector Point. My friend was interested in the HC3 and as I already had the H30 I was keen to see the difference. We ran the Mitsubishi first and I was impressed with the quality of the picture. We then ran the HC3 next to the Optoma themescene H30 there was no competition!. The depth and saturation of the H30 compared to the mitsubishi was unrivelled. I really liked the Optoma thats why I got one, but my friend who originally was an LCD fan "mumble mumble rainbows rainbows" saw the light and bought the H30 there and then! Has any one seen any more shoot outs in the flesh?
