I have the 300extra-h model,. The h at the end means I have hdmi;and yes it works. No issues at all and that is more than can be said for some of these big buck projectors---(Light bulb flicker on some Marantz models) 'Love the 8000 hr bulb.--So, "Who's Better,Who's Best"? Well there are so many newer better ones that also have higher prices.--- I don't quite get having a dvi-d input and it not working. I use a cable that has dvi-d on on end and hdmi on the projector end.
