Great deal on the HC3 and I like the light output...my only concern is the SDE and how prevalent it is. I understand the further back you go, the less you obviously see it, in general. I've heard 14 feet...but curious as to how it looks at, say, 12 feet. It's such a great deal price wise that it's hard to ignore, but I'm also considering the Sanyo Z-2 which can be had for about $300 more. I will have some degree of ambient light in the room, but plan on getting blinds and thick curtains for the windows. It will be mounted in the wall behind the couch with the screen 12.5-14.5 feet away (haven't decided on the exact placement yet, but distance will be in that range.

Also taking a look at Panasonic AE700U (a little more than I'd like to spend) and Panasonic PT-L500U, as well as the BENQ PE7800 DLP model. But I'd like to stay under $1,500 on the projector.

The HC3 originally listed for around $2,500...it's an aggressive price drop, but by all accounts this is a quality pj from obviously a quality manufacturer.
I'd just like to hear from someone who has seen one to get their viewpoints on the SDE mainly. If it's not noticeable sitting 12+ feet back is what I need to find out.
