Summary: So far so good. I have put about 200 hrs on it with no problems it is like new for a used projector I believe that these will hold up. Well they should with a price tag of 14,000$$ when they first came out. There is no hdmi port but plenty of options for hs input. It does up to 1080i hd. I will stick with LCD from now on. Had a new 3d projector go out on only 400 hrs on it. It was dlp. I allways had better experance with LCD.
Summary: Personal Experience Is an excellent tool I use for 5 years but can not turn the light and contrast settings are not active on this issue I would like your help. Problems I have 4 pieces from this projector, but only 1 of them I can not make adjustment for the light and brightness settings are not active, so performance is very low.
Summary: Personal Experience Terrible product. If you have this and have a problem then throw it out and buy a new one. Problems After 1 and a half years the projector started burning dim. I replaced the lamp and tried everything else before I called Hitachi who was no help at all. This product and the company are both terrible. Customer service is a joke unless you feel like being blamed for all the issues that are wrong with THEIR product.
Summary: Personal Experience I'm repairing this kind of DVP's the problem that Oscar has is in 90% of the repairs a defective blue LCD panel. The pannel becomes to hot and burned. this is a fault in construction of the unit.
Summary: Personal Experience I used this product in a home theater setting and was extremely pleased with image quality, features, useability etc. After three years, 2 months it displayed a serious malfunction that rendered it unuseable. Problems No problems during the tenure of the manufacturer's warranty. Big problem after manufacturers warranty.
