Summary: I have had this item for about 2 yrs. It has been discontinued by Infocus and replacement lamps are hard to find in the U.S. I am now using it very sparingly until I can track down replacement lamps for it. It would have been nice to know this before I bought it. Also it has no remote which can be a pain sometimes. Video quality is ok but not the greatest.
Summary: After one year of light use my infocus IN1 projector won't turn on anymore. I pressed the power button to turn it on and nothing happened. When I unplug and plug it back in the lamp and hourglass lights flash for a second while the fan spins for the next 5 seconds, then the two lights flash again and everything turns off. I thought this meant the lamp had gone out but we used it very little.
Beware, yes for the price it's good but it will only last a year

Summary: We bought this same projector exactly a year ago and the power button just broke. Apparently after searching the internet we found out that this is a common problem and the piece that breaks is very flimsy and is known to break. Unfortunately with no use of the power button the projector is useless. We have figured a way to shove a screwdriver in the hole and sometimes it works and turns on.
Summary: Comments about Infocus IN1: This projector will surprise and impress you. It is a tremendous value. [...]. It comes with a high quality backpack to store it in. We use it for outdoor movies with friends, or hooking up the Wii for kids. It is not HiDef by any stretch, but connected to Svideo a DVD looks very enjoyable for a family movie night.
Summary: Quick Delivery, Great Cables Included. Ordered Thursday night and received the next Tuesday by noon. For the price you cannot go wrong with this projector. I've used it in a semi-dark living room to play Wii Sports (loads of fun)and in my own, darker living room to watch loads of DVDs and online movies (netflix & HULU). The projection size I get is about 7ft diagonal. Landscapes have a little graininess but animation and action scenes look GREAT.
