Like the Optoma HD8200 recently reviewed, this is one of the newer DLP projectors that as Texas Instruments promised, makes the rainbow effect less noticeable to those of us who are sensitive. I can still spot it once in a rare while, but it’s less of an issue than on some others, such as the BenQ W5000, one of its direct competitors. The color wheel is a 5x, 6 segment. That’s good to start, but other things are going on as well that reduce the rainbow effect. Bottom line, I’m moderately sensitive, but rarely spot rainbows with this projector even on scenes that are most susceptible (bright white moving quickly on a dark background).
