Summary: Wow I have got to say that I have not had any problems with my Infocus LP350. I will say the bulb did go out with a bang but I had the same bulb & projector for 6 years without incident. HERE'S HOW I DID IT WITH 3 EASY RULES. 1st You have to keep in mind that there is a bulb inside and just like an old tube tv or radio you have to be paient, give it time to warm up(2-5minutes) before you get any real image.
Summary: My wife and I needed a Projector immediately because of our need to give presentations for our business and this particular InFocus Projector was terrible! The problem was that all of the presentations we had to display for our audience had this "reddish" tent and when I went into the menu settings the "color" setting menu option was deactivated meaning I didn't have the ability to change how the presentations were displayed.
Summary: New projectors are very expensive, but a used projector just a few years old has many of the same features and is much cheaper. My LP350 is 4 years old. It works fine with my computer, DVD player and VCR. It has a nasty habit of misaligning the screen, but choosing Reset All from the menu seems to cure that. It takes about half a minute to warm up and has no cool-down time (you just turn it off when you're done).
Summary: We bought into the InFocus hype about 3 years ago, and this projector has been a nightmare. After a bulb explosion at 180 hours, the unit was returned for 'update' which was free as long as you purchased the 'new' design bulb at full retail. InFocus did offer to trade, but you would have to invest in another product from this company which I would not do. We purchased an absolutely great Sanyo, and use the InFocus anchor with the update as a backup.
Summary: I bought an LP350 about two and a half years ago. Since then, I have gone through seven lamps in two different projectors. I sent the first unit back to InFocus twice in the first year, going through four lamps in the process. The third time I sent it in, they sent me a "new" refurbished projector. The first lamp in the new unit lasted about 15 hours, a new record at the time actually... I've blown two more since then.
Summary: This projector lacks many features including A/V mute. It uses a propritary video cable that has broken on my unit twice. Had to order replacement cable from Infocus store at a premium price. Lamp life is really bad. Had two bulbs explode (yes explode and smoke)in the unit. Now I am having trouble getting another replacement lamp. If I want a new lamp I have to send it back to Infocus to get a power supply upgrade.
Summary: I bought the projector in December 2001. The projector has some quality problems. Lamp Explosion: The original lamp that came with the new projector was exploded after about one year of use (about 400 hours). It occurred when it was projecting a movie without any indication. Other users also experienced lamp explosions with the projector. Difficult-to-Turn-On Problem: The projector has problems with starting up the lamp.
Summary: Personal Experience The LP350 that I have is a remanufactured projector. The image is great except for the fact the you have to use the dvi input to get true high definition (component would have been nice.) I use the s-video input for all my movies and most cable channels but use the dvi for my hd cable. I recommend this projector if you can get a good one but see below. Problems The bulb blew 2 months after recieving it - infocus replaced it under warranty.
