    Hey, this is my first post
    Does anyone know how the Xbox 360 looks on the H27? I know it wont be HD or anything but Im just curious. I ordered the H27 a couple days ago. (screenshots would be nice)

    I ran my XBOX 360 with a Optoma H30 for a while, similar sort of spec to the H27 although different DLP chip but I have to say I wasn't disappointed with the picture. It was much better than what I was expecting.

    However after hooking the 360 to a mates Sanyo Z3 the extra resolution did make a worthwhile difference but maybe not quite as much as I was expecting.

    If you can afford the extra outlay a native 720P projector is better but once lost in the action on a big screen, the truth is you probably won't notice that much difference.

    The H27 is a fine machine. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the reply :)
    I'm just a poor 17 year old that worked his butt off for this projector, so 720p is out of the picture, I can only dream

    Keep your eyes open for 2nd hand bargains and you'll probably get lucky sooner or later!

    Enjoy your combo m8!
