Summary: Personal Experience I bought my Davis DL450 when the twin towers were still standing, actually right down the road at J&Rs... Have schlepped it around half the world since and it never failed me. It was quite an investment at the time, the dollar exchang rate was not what it is today, but it was well worth it. Problems Somehow can't get my DVD player & digital cable box to show the picture in other than black and white, so if anyone has a clue, leave a message...
Summary: Personal Experience Its been a great very cheap presentation projector for dark rooms. I now have it in the basement and the kids play playstation and watch movies on an 7 foot screen on the wall I made. Not bad at all. A little blurry at that size due to low resolution but for $300 used it has been great. Bulb has lasted well over 2500 hrs so I knows ts days are numbered.
Summary: Personal Experience I have wanted a home cinema projector for years. I picked this up very cheap and absolutely love it. Granted it isn't as bright as alot out there but the picture quality at 100" is unbeleivable. I have linked to a laptop and a tv via s-video lead. The first things I watched on it where fight scenes from The Matrix trilogy and The Lord of the Rings - The return of the king. I cannot fault the picture quality at all.
Summary: Personal Experience Have been using this for some time now and it's a great little box - It's even impressed clients that I have given presentations to ! Problems Lost my PS-2 mouse cable and can not find a replacement, but that's my fault not the machines'.
Summary: Personal Experience Leider ist ein "Lichtkranz" um das Bild. Problems A&K schreibt dazu: Wir mÃ¼ssen Ihnen leider die Mitteilung machen, dass dieser "Lichtkranz" speziell bei diesen Modellen der AstroBeam-Serie normal ist. Die Ursache ist, dass bei der Bestrahlung der Mikrospiegel Streulicht auf den DMD-Chip gerÃ¤t, welches dann reflektiert wird und diesen Lichteffekt auslÃ¶st. Bei den neueren Modellen tritt dieser Effekt nicht mehr auf.
Summary: Personal Experience This projector is the best thing i ever bought. Im using it for everything i do TV, PC, VIDEO, DVD. It gives you a exellent picture in all modes. Its really worth the money.
