Pros: I purchase this to replace my well aged BenQ W500...
And all I can say is WOW ! ! !
Straight out of the box and onto the wall I am getting a gorgeous 130" diagonal picture at a 16' throw. The colors are amazing and the contrast is surprisingly crisp for a sub $1000 projector. This projector is able to blast through all ambient and artificial lighting in the theater and even on a sunny noon day I only have to close the curtains (haven't touched the black out shades in weeks now!) to get a theatre quality image. The fan is whisper quiet while running and from pressing power off the cool down period is a mere 10 seconds.
Cons: My only real gripe about the HD25e is that there seems to be a bit of a Q&A issue at the lens factory, not only in the reports of 'blurry edged lenses' (which thankfully I avoided) but that there was large amount of dust on the inside of the lens and two small fingerprints on the outside of the lens. Again not deal breakers, but be sure to give the lens the once over before mounting the projector out of reach.
Other Thoughts: Now this projector is great but it is not without some... err... places for improvement. Signal pick up is a bit slow on the HDMI and be double sure to turn off the ever annoying auto-seek-input function. The light leak, should you be so inclined to look at the projector from the front is quite noticeable, but the amount of lumen to the wall means you will never ever be bothered by it as long as it is ceiling mounted. There is also an even so small amount of the rainbow effect, but at 130" and sitting 14' back it is visible in only the darkest and brightest of scenes and should not be a deal breaker for those of us in this price range.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to setup in Win 7.
Runs every game I can through at it with no issues (save FFXIV 1.0 that was just horrendous coding though).
Cons: I need a second one still >_<
Other Thoughts: Needed a multi-display app to get wallpaper to span properly. Win7 doesn't let you place multiple monitors properly in the setupREAD FULL REVIEW
