  • Summary: Personal Experience The long term performance of the vp6111 in daily use environments has proved it unreliable, prone to a variety of failures beyond expected component replacements (particularly power supplies and physical inputs) and not at all a currently-worthwhile investment. As a used unit, one would be better off seeking another more tried-and-true solution than the 6111.

  • Summary: Lamp life is an issue with any projector. $500 for a new lamp after 1900 hours of use, which came up for us in only a couple years, using for home "theater" (movies) only, no TV watching. A few times we got an error at startup, but simply shutting off and turning back on solved the problem. Either the projector isn't bright enough, or our screen isn't good enough, we can't see semi-dark scenes at all, unless it is PITCH BLACK in the house.
  • Pros: The features for the price is what impressed me the most.
  • Cons: "Credit card size remote" doesn't work very well.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I wanted to give back since this site was so helpful. I have the HP VP6111 set up for home theater. It's is excellent. I have 755 hours so far, and no problems. I have comcast HDTV and The Sox and the Patriots never looked better! I have not noticed any rainbow effect as mentioned in other reviews. Over all I am thrilled with this machine.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I got the HP VP6111 with a $200 rebate. $899 final cost. I had never seen DLP projection video before, but I did own a Novabeam Model 100 back about 10 years ago. I am using the Novabeam 72" screen, and am absolutly amazed at the brightness and clarity of the VP6111. My son and I watched 2 NFL games on satellite TV and projector today and I noticed none of the anomolies I had read concerning LCD and DLP projectors.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I was pretty surprised after having read some of the reviews on some websites on this projecor. It was very simple to set up and the quality was fantastic I had few adjustments to make on initial set up. The fan may be a little loud however if you have a decent surround system I have idea why this would be a complaint. I have not experienced the 'rainbow effect' that people speak of. What are the alternatives for the same price? I have no idea.

  • Summary: Personal Experience It has a component input that is a plus- no extra adapters needed (like infocus) Problems There is a when using progressive signals. It results in a flicker. This is horrible when used with dig cable. HP knows of the problem and says it is a conflict w/ some processors. Interlaced is OK.
