Summary: These projectors are the best used affordable projectors on the market. Let me define that. Best as in for home theater, brightness, and resolution. This is a SXVGA machine which a machine of this resolution is rarely seen on the market new or used. It provides a 1400 X 1050 native resolution where current affordable projectors are 1200 X 800 or less.
Summary: This projector is fantastic. Although used, it looks great and works great as well. It gets very hot, but I guess it's normal for such powerful unit. It arrived promptly and you can't really beat the price.
Great projector, grate features and functionality!

Summary: It is what everyone should want in a projector. Bright and easy to use. Good bulb life too. Only drawback is the amount of heat this fella puts out. Make sure you use in a well ventilated area.
Summary: very nice projector with a reasonable price if bought with a discount! pros: as for the picture quality, nothing to complain, you will get 1400X1050 crisp and pixels with vivid color and deep dark level. plenty of connection choices. quiet. conts: it will get over heating problem if put in hot rooms, say 85+ degree. make sure the room is air conditioned.
Summary: Personal Experience At this price point you would be hard pressed to find a more solid, feature rich projector. The image quality rivals much more expensive units (Christie DS+25). When calibrated correctly, blacks are black, greens are green, reds are red, etc. The color performance is remarkable considering the price point and 4 segment wheel, of course after you turn off the white segment. Saturation is almost CRT like, not dull like other single chip units.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had the Dell 5100 now for about two months in my home theater. Definitely a big WOW. Hey, I can watch movies during the day time, something not really possible with lower lumen projectors. Setup was easy. The unit has a good sturdy feel to it, it's not a portable, no! This baby is meant to be bolted to your ceiling, end of discussion. The picture out of the box was washed out and not really delivering the subtle shades of white.
Summary: Personal Experience Dell 5100MP seems to be the very first projector within $5000 price range with truly hi-res output. And it's delivering with a huge WOW factor, particularly during photo images presentation from Windows slide show. That's the main reason for this investment. For slide show I'm using pristine digital signal from venerable Matrox Parhelia card, utilizing full 1400x1050 capability of the projector.
