    Hi
    as anybody seen one of these r/pros in action and is it any good with standard pal signals i am thinking of ordering one of these bad boys but not having a dealer near me in Norwich dont know whether buy it with out seeing it in action it seems to have good reviews in usa, would you order it without seeing it? i have seen the sagem working and that is not as good as the optoma and i thought that was good
    Thanks
    Big Ric

    There's been a lot of reports about noise from the Sagem Axium - noisy fans, or colour wheel etc... :eek:

    I was wondering if anyone (when the sets arive) can give an indication to the noise level that Optoma sets produce.

    Thanks.

    as the 2 sets are of the same design, I would expect them to be the same, but I guess optima could have changed the fan supplier I suppose.

    well i couldnt hold out any longer so i said bye bye samsung and the toshiba and ordered my optoma RD50 :D out on the 15th nov so i should get it by 10 days after that :)

    just curious... i hope its ok playing console games on it as well as watching movies :rolleyes:

    the lady on the phone was helpful hehe i wonder what her name was :rolleyes:

    i didnt bother with the stand as i think its a stupid amount to pay for just a stand.

    well now i need to sleep for 2 weeks so i can stand the wait
