Warning: This projector may cause shortness of breath.
Gasping in awe is one of many symptoms of a 10,000:1 contrast, 1080p DLP, and 1,000 lumens. In fact, given this projector's unparalleled depth and brightness, heart palpitations also commonly occur. Now add a piano-black ID as discerning as your particular taste, two lens options, vertical lens shift, future-proof connectivity, VXP video, and darkroom optimized remote, and you can count on persistent, overwhelming side effects. Caution: Turning green is a common side effect amongst friends.
