Well it took me so long to get a decent shot of the Infocus X1 in action. It is sold at the very low price of $999 USD which is cheaper than a 36" inch Sony Grand Wega. It still doesn't show how really good the picture quality is but it is getting closer. The first set of pictures I took was definitely washed out. I need to learn to take dark room shots from my Canon S400.

Projectors are such a hard thing to get a good picture of. If you have a perfectly dark room, you cant tell how large the picture actually is. If you start letting light into the room, the picture starts going downhill just a bit.

The X1 is an awesome projector, my room was not "big enough" for it. At the distance it would have been from the screen, I only would have got a 70" picture.

I notice all your images are 16:9 but you have a 4:3 screen. Do you ever use 4:3? I have a Draper Luma 92" 16x9 never used if you are interested.

That screen is a temp one used for my rental place. When my new place is done in April I will get a custom Da-lite Hipower with custom thickness borders (suggested by Sushi). That will have to wait till I move in to get proper dimensions. I do use 4:3 through the Viewsonic video processor that re-scales cable TV to 800x600. Thanks for the offer.

Saturn, i think you left out your speaker stand brands from your otherwise thorough component list.
They look very nice. Shot loaded?
