Bottom Line:   
The Runco VX-1CX started as a brilliant DLP projector. It featured wonderful picture clarity. The only flaws were that the image quickly fades in any light and that the blacks don't match up to those produced by CRT projectors. After 6 months of use the control unit stopped communicating with the projector and it was returned to Runco for a replacement in a 3 week process. Recently the projector failed again and I'm still waiting on the second replacement before the warranty goes. Just had the new VX-1000c installed at a new location and it clearly out does the VX-1CX, I am already having some trouble with the new projector losing input and flicker to white. In the future I'll be using someone else's projectors. Normally you get what you pay for, in this case that rule doesn't apply.

Bottom Line:   
Even after a year, I continue to be amazed at how good the picture quality is. We have a 8 foot (diagonal) 16:9 screen and the image sharpness, detail and brightness are very good. I am very happy with it.
