Summary: Personal Experience Random Power-Off Issues on several we have. Good Color, Remote is weak and get's weaker with age regardless of batteries. Shorter throw than most is a plus. Fast power up. Other than the above listed issues, this projector appears fairly consistent over the years.
Summary: Purchasing these projectors was an unfortunate mistake.
Cons: Very Poor ventilation design - Easily overheats when seated on any surface. Other problems. I work for a school that purchased 8 lp290s when they were new. All 8 lasted less than 2 years before they became unfunctional. None accumulated more than 200 lamp hours in that time.
Summary: Personal Experience a fantastic,reliable projector which produces great results for the price.Highly recommended to those new to lcd projectors.if you can still find one then grab it Problems nil
Summary: Personal Experience We use at least a dozen of these LP290 InFocus projectors here. Generally the provide an easy, portable and good enough image resolution and brightness for our applications.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought an LP290 for home. at 2000 hrs bulb life got a blue spot on screen. Took in and was told the engine was gone and would be 2800.00 to fix. Tech was great and called infocus as it was just out of warranty.
Summary: Personal Experience Lightweight, decent image quality. Problems Infrared receiver on unit is too weak and does not pick up signals from the remote control when using the projector in a room with fluorescent lighting.
