Mike's General Comments

Overall, there are a lot of similarities between the LS10000 and the 6030 reviewed last year.  If you didn’t know it was a laser projector, you’d never guess it from the performance.  Lumen output is equal or greater in all modes than the 6030.  Brightness, contrast and RGB balances are all very similar to a lamp projector.  This is the first laser projector I’ve seen where I could say that.
