Summary: One of the best buys of the HD2 DLP chip era. Possess very good light production and easily user accessible and serviceable bulb and filter assemblies. The lens is capable of projecting a very bright, large image at very short throw distances.
Pros: VERY bright, Very short throw distance, Great Price
Summary: Personal Experience I have about 1300 hours of viewing time on this projector and love it. I have a homemade 130" diagnol screen and with a HD signal input the picture is awesome. I have had so many people complement the quality and color.
Summary: Personal Experience Projector performance is very satisfactory. Picture on a 144" wide screen and is absolutely phenominal and HD is exceptionally beautiful. My first lamp lasted for about 30 months and 1500 hours in economic mode. Lamp life was shorter than expected - but still respectable.
Summary: The PE7700 is an amazing projector, in it's time. There are comparable projectors out there for about the same price now. When I first turned it on and had it shining on my freshly painted dark forest green wall, my mouth dropped open from how good it looked.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had nothing but trouble with this projector. In fact, in all of my years purchasing and selling AV equipment I have never encountered something this bad. I have just blown out my 4th bulb, with none of them lasting longer than 700 hours in economy mode.
Summary: Personal Experience Owned this projector for about 18 months, it is connected to my sky HD box and DVD is used as a TV. I was suprised to see that there are so many problems I use the projector for at least 8 hours a day and run it on economy mode as I am a bit tight and want the bulb to last as...
Summary: Personal Experience The first thing I have to say is: Don't buy one! I, along with many other users have had nothing but problems with this projector. Which is too bad, because the picture quality is really quite good for the price, and the features are great.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for about a year now and it is excellent. The image is great and they have fixed the firmware bugs. Fantastic projector for the price. Problems none
Summary: Personal Experience The picture is amazing in Component or HDMI mode. You can connect anything to this unit: Xbox, DVD Player, HD Cable Box or your computer. The family really enjoys it- it's better than being at the movies. Problems Needed Free Firmware upgrade due to mfg date of March 2005.
Summary: Personal Experience In less than a year I have had to send this system back to company twice. They did a nice job the first time in terms of pick-up, repair, and drop off, but i have had projectors for the last 6 years, and this one is a lemon.
