A great entry level LCD projector, with the user in mind

cine3838, Ebay
7 May 2013
  • Summary: As a previous InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 (DLP, 480P native res.) owner and user, the InFocus SP5000 (LCD, 720P native res.) is a definite step up. The only thing it won't do is project full 1080P/24 HD. If you play a lot of older VHS tapes, laser discs and SD DVDs like I do, you'll love this projector! Blu-ray discs look great! It's got a bright, full color display, and I was concerned about 'depth', because on a regular LCD TV, DVDs can look a bit flat.

Great product with nuances of being an older unit.

  • Summary: Good picture, brightness. The downside is that there is no HDMI hookup being an older model. It does DVI, which you can get an HDMI to DVI converter, but this uses a really old DVI standard. I am still having trouble finding an adapter that works.

Best value native 720p projector when purchased used. Bright clear picture

  • Summary: The Infocus SP5000 is a great native 720P HD projector. I am using one for high definition television watching on a 80 inch screen in my family room and it does a great job! All my friends are impressed when they come over and see how clear and bright the picture is. For under $600 used on eBay, this projector is an amazing deal. Don’t spend hundreds or thousands more on any other projector.

Infocus SP-5000 is an OK older model... some tips 4U

gamespeopleplay, Ebay
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Not a bad performing model for its technology generation. TIPS: Keep its intake air temperature "cool" if possible (normal room air temp) and not sucking up its own recycled (hot) exhaust air. Remember to clean out all dust blocking the external air filters (check 'em every 100 hrs or so).

LCD projectors give best colors and black levels everytime

Richard White, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned my Infocus Sp5000 for 5 years or 6209 hours view time .The problem I find with the very few negative reviews on this incredible little native 720p LCD projector is they usually come from people that have little time, experience and patients setting up and end up selling the projector prematurely and wasting precious time lodging their complaints .

  • Summary: Other than that I haven't had any problems with this projector.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: The best quality picture comes through a S-Video Cable nothing better, like component or newer technology. There are some spots (purple) that come up on the screen from time to time.

Infocus screenplay SP5000

autol7, Ebay

  • Summary: Nice projector, no lens shift but that really isnt a big deal for me. If you get the right mount it can be adjusted enough where you dont even need lens shift. I never really did understand the whol lens shift hoopla. Has a nice image, no DLP rainbow effect, plenty of inputs and has a sharp enough, bright enough image to make this projector a good cheap projector its just what i wanted. The bulbs are even reasonably priced.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for over two years... I love it. Never had any problem. I use it as my everyday TV for high-def gaming and as a movie theater. I get compliments all the time. Also I have used the bulb for over 4000 hours with no end in sight. I will definitely buy another Infocus when I upgrade. I HIGHLY Recommend this product. Problems None whatsoever.....

  • Summary: 1.) There is lots of posterization of colors near white and near black. This makes it pretty bad for watching movies, which are color balanced for dark adapted eyes. 2.) You must turn the projector upside down to mount the projector near the ceiling: there is no angle adjustment on the cone of view. When you do turn it upside down, the buttons are not accessible, and there are no leveling feet.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: 1.) lots of posterization of colors near white and near black. 2.) no angle adjustment on the cone of view 3.) DVI/HDMI input requires buying a custom optional cable.
