Summary: I started using the InFocus LP250 Projector in my high school English classroom the day after I received it, and I have used it every day since. While it is not as bright as other projectors I have used, it has been reliable and is very easy to use.
Summary: The Infocus LP250 is a great general purpose projector. All my friends are impressed when they come over and see how clear and bright the picture is. For under $300 used on eBay, this projector is an amazing deal. Don’t spend hundreds or thousands more on any other projector. In my opinion, the LP250 LCD projector produces a much richer and more colorful image compared to DLP projectors.
Summary: Personal Experience Overall this projector works very well. As an Apple ibook (laptop) owner, I had no problems whatsoever as long as I was using the vga adapter provided by Apple. At the school where I teach, we have about 12 of these projectors. Problems The new Apple MacBook (laptop) also has its unique vga adapter, but I cannot get a picture on the screen. Help!
Summary: Personal Experience I've used this projector in my sales training career. It has been carried everywhere and abused and keeps on working!!! Excellent projector!!!!! Problems None in 3 years of ownership.
Summary: Personal Experience Used as home projector. Good till engine went just at 2000 hrs of bulb life. blue spot on screen. Infocus acknowledged a heating problem and software upgrade but never received a notice of needing it. Problems took to repair .Told 2800.00 and tech talked to infocus on my behalf with no luck. Tech said heating problem over time caused engine to fail infocus said to bad.
Summary: Personal Experience Our High School purchased 5 LP250s in April 2002. We mounted them on the ceiling in the classrooms. They have enhanced the lesson plans of our staff. We have found that the students do remain engaged in the lessons when viewing powerpoint presentations or other interactive presentations through the Projector. Problems The bulbs are burning out at a tremendous rate. We replace 2 bulbs for each projector each school year.
Summary: Personal Experience Bright sharp XGA powerpoint presentation - but home cinema is a definite NO. You might be impressed if this is the first big screen picture you have seen, but stray from computer generated XGA to movies and you have a strnagely flat picture with extraordinary skin tones. People look slightly greenish indoors and in brighter outdoor scenes look as though they are about to break out into serious skin disease.
Summary: Personal Experience I first bought the Infocus X1. Great projector, couldn't fault it, especially the price. However the Rainbow artifacts are impossible to miss, no matter how hard you try to ignore them. I spent the extra to get this projector so I wouldn't see the artifacts. WELL! This is an awesome projector. Crystal clear images, more resolution than the X1, the descaler is just as good, it has a clearer image for PC's.
