Summary: Bought one of these two years ago. It saw VERY occasional use, maybe 5 times a year. And it was babied pretty carefully, stored securely. It produces a very nice, bright image, which is usable even in rooms which are not blacked out, or outside in the evening twilight hours. But it would appear that after maybe twelve or fifteen total uses, the color wheel has already gone bad. That's what the slow-blinking LAMP indicator means, according to the manual.
Summary: Projector had fan error message when turning on the projector within a few months of purchasing, "fan not at factory rpm." The error would go away and the projector would work flawlessly. The picture was fantastic, etc. I called customer support and I could have shipped it off to be fixed, but decided to wait. Unfortunately, before the 1 year warranty expired I didn't ship it back and at 13 months the bulb popped. I bought a new bulb and now have a complete fan failure.
Summary: Oh mann, alles nix ordentliches. Unser alter Medion Beamer kommt an die Grenzen seiner Lampe und nu ist es Zeit für nen neuen Beamer. Mein Plan: wieder nen Tausender in die Hand nehmen und was bekommen was richtig Spaß macht. Mehr ist mir die Sache nicht wert, dafür gucken wir zu selten, und weniger gibt selten HD.
