Summary: This was what I had been looking for. I didn't want to pay the price for new projector however for a used item it was almost as costly as a new one. The quality of the used projector was nice and performance is beyond my expectations.
Summary: Personal Experience I built a 25sqmeter Home Theater with a 120in fixed screen 1.1 gain. I have the projector since Oct 2010 with no issues neither any maintenance needed so far. The projector is ceiling mounted and I use a Sony Blue Ray disc player and a HD satellite box.
Summary: Personal Experience It's a very robust and high reliability projector. I have used it for 3 years now as my home-movie theatre and it does the job very well. Problems 3D is indeed a pain - and Dell are totally in the dark as to how this can be setup.
Excerpt: I was about a year looking and comparings Specs and Co$t Decided to go with this especially cause of some reviews. Reviews do NOT lie. When I projected this up on the wall the settings were set to maximum ((WOW)). I had to reduce in order to fit my wall and I was amazed.
Excerpt: I've used this 1610HD for about a year and the colors and brightness are great. Follow the instructions and all the features work well also. I never thought the 3D would work this well after reading reviews but I have no problems with this at all.
Summary: Personal Experience This does a great job with 3D, after figuring out how to set it up. I think the color is very good and image quality is great. I have a Sharp X-F212 and it is rated at 2100 lums. The 1601HD is not too much brighter (3500 lums). Dell Support was great (with one caveat 3D setup).
Excerpt: I purchased the 1510X hd supposedley 3D wrong!@!!! when i complained they said they would replace with 1610XHD wich doesn't work either as 3D if i would pay X-dollars more. why!!! should I pay more for something that was supposed to work!! in the first place..Dell needs a wakeup call!
