Summary: Bought a used HP. Great picture for the price. Highly recommend it. Glad I purchased this item. Saw some negatives reports that the fan is noisy, but with the sound from the movie I didn't even notice it.
Summary: Personal Experience I have used slightly less expensive models at about 1/2 the brightness and contrast. Wow. The image quality is as good as my Sony WEGA 32" but at more than 3 times the size. There is almost no screendoor effect, the color and clarity are fantastic even in low light for movies, and even in medium light for powerpoint presentations. I have had a loaner for several weeks and now just had to buy one.
Summary: Personal Experience This has got to be another thumbs up for me, its the second projector I have owned the previous one being a Sony LCD which was good but dosn't compare to this and I'm a Sony fan. S-video is good but this projector really shines when hooked up to component video, yet to try it with an HD signal but v. happy that it supports 1080i so it should be good for a little while longer. I do find it a bit noisy, but I can live with it.
Summary: Personal Experience Sprzęt bardzo dobrej jakosci. Obraz wręcz idealny, nie widac kratek laczacych piksele. Efekt teczy zniwelowany do minimum. Duzym plusem jest to ze projektor posiada wejscia component obraz przez to wejscie jest dyzo wyrazniejszy, oczywiscie obsluguje prograsiw scan. Brak efektu smuzenia Problems Zbyt maly kontrast, ale dotyczy to wszystkich projektorow. Halas z projektora niby niewielki, ale jest.
Summary: Personal Experience I looked at several projectors before selecting this one, but for the money this was really the best deal out there. The picture is incredibly bright, even when using the economy mode to conserve bulb life. I've used the VGA input with my powerbook and the component input to watch DVDs and play videogames, all displayed in progressive scan, and am blown away by how great everything looks.
Summary: Personal Experience Image is very good, but a bit dark in eco mode (during the day). Excellent picture when the room is dark. Normal mode doesn't improve brightness very much. Problems The fan generates an alternating pitch, which can be disturbing during quiet scenes of a movie.
Summary: Personal Experience The projector works well. Good picture quality on 8'screens Problems However, I have two projectors, purchased at the same time (last year), that are overheating and shutting down.
