  • Summary: Personal Experience Definitely not reliable, easy to carry, but difficult to make it work when the lamp goes over 600 hours, I hope it will manage all the way to 1000, but still it shuts down itself too often now, making strange tortured noises Problems Shutting itself, bye the 700 hours it does not want even to start working for some time, and I think the cooling fan works not very well and something inside makes strange noises when it doesn't want to start working...

  • Summary: Personal Experience Used two of these and many Infocus models. Compaq/HP unit bright, but color saturation is not good. Easy to use, portable, but not good reliability or service Problems We have returned for service both of these units 3 or 4 times. (compared to only 2 service calls for the 4 infocus projectors we have). Service was slow and expensive.

  • Summary: Personal Experience It works great, and produces a nice image. However, it is not reliable, and the service from HP is very poor. Just 2 months out of warranty, the light wouldn't come on. After spending some time on the phone, I tried reseating the bulb module at the suggestion of HP. That didn't work. So then they had me send it in, for $89 minimum charge. They charged me another $499 for the service.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I AGREE WITH OTHER OPNIONS. PROJECTOR IS VERY MUCH PROTABLE & EXCELLENT QUALITY IN PICTURE. AS THE LIGHT FROM THE PROJECTOR IS BRIGHT IT DOES WORK VERY WELL IN THE LIGHTED ROOMS. THE REMOTE HELPS ALOT IN CONTROLLING THE PROJECTOR IF ITS ON A CIELING MOUNT. THE PROJECTOR OFFERS EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY AND IS A NICE CHOICE FOR THOSE LOOKINGS FOR QUALITY WIHTOUT FORKING OUT TOO MUCH MONEY.

  • Summary: Personal Experience When it works, it is great. For being ultra portable, it is understandable the unit has limited features that normally comes with a regular portable unit. We are satisfied with the image quality even projecting while lights are on. Problems Our agency both 16 of these units and they all have the same problem. For the first fifteen minutes of operation, it would keep shutting off itself.
