Summary: Everything about the description was correct. You really don't know if sticking more money into a broken item to repair is going to work of not until you do it, in this case it worked out beyond expectations. Being that this was going to be used for Scout activities we did not have an abundance of money to use. This gave us a usable product at a great cost and is used every month for our local Cub Scouts and on occasion at training for scout leaders.
Summary: Personal Experience I couldn't resist the price. I picked one up on ebay for $125 with a near new lamp. Considering its only an SVGA projector it preform better than expected. Little wonder this jewel was so popular in '04 for entry level HT on a tight budget. Easy to set up runs quiet and delivers a beautiful image even from my old LD player. Problems Twice "video" mode did the it over temp. Running it in cinema mode with no problems.
Summary: Este vídeo proyector es muy recomendable, también su vendedor, puesto que lo envió en buenas condiciones, funcional, y muy fácil de usar, aunque llego sin control remoto!, pero lo mas importante es que esta en buenas condiciones y listo para usar! This video projector is highly recommended, also the vendor, as sent in good condition, functional and easy to use, but came without a remote control!, But more importantly is in good condition and ready to use!
Summary: Personal Experience Bought the PB6100 5 years ago, and although I don't use it alot, it hasn't failed me in any way yet! More reliable than the Epson Powerlite my brother owns (his second due to dead pixels) When in controlled lighting, its a nice clear and crisp picture. Excellent bang for the buck!
Summary: Personal Experience I got it 3 1/2 years ago for $800 on a xmas sale, this is one the best electronics purchases i have ever made. It has a fantastic picture with VGA for games and DVD/media through the computer, very accurate colors and detail. The durability really impresses me, this thing has seen trips to Europe, house moves, been thrown around a lot. It might just be luck but the bulb life is amazing.
Summary: Personal Experience Best projector I've owed yet. No problems what so ever. Have had it for over a year and not one problem! My next projector purchase will definitely be another one of these. Problems None.
12 months of use - Satisfaction High, Projector Central

Summary: Personal Experience I've had PB6100 for 12 mo. Flawless performance. Many negative quality/feature posts look like people who did not research their purchase (no idea what they were buying) or have not configured, cabled or calibrated the unit properly. Suggest ECO mode - picture is actually better IMHO - for longer life. Buy a calibration DVD - all projector brands need to be calibrated. Problems Just more comments.
Summary: I confirm that this BenQ projector has either a crappy bulb or bad color wheel. I have used it for about 2 years, only watching movies on the weekends. The recorded bulb usage is 337 hours, and the picture already starts to flicker. At first I thought it might be the 25 feet long signal cable, so I disconnected the cable and just watched the blank blue screen, still flickers! Its promised bulb time is 2000 hours in video mode.
