Summary: Personal Experience Bought upon recommendation and reading glowing reviews of the product here at Projector Central and elsewhere on the net. Plug and play claims are so true! Fabulous right out of the box! Ease of operation is amazing. Color and sharpness are very impressive.
Summary: Personal Experience I upgraded from the X1 to the 5700. My first reaction viewing 480p was it seemed more film like,the color over all more true to life.The main reason I wanted to upgrade was so I could use my upconverter dvd player,DVI..Upconverted 1080I is Awesome......$1350 refurbish.
Summary: Personal Experience This projector has been GREAT! I started off with a ViewSonic PJ550 (it was really good with HD sources). I upgraded to this about 10 months ago and have put aprox 900 hours on it. I use it for evrything. The color on this SP5700 is better than any projector I have seen.
Summary: Personal Experience Basically a very good projector. Great picture. Colors are really superb and contrast is good. To me the only thing that could be better is some more light-output. Problems Sometimes the projector looses its input-channel. This happens once every 4 or 5 movies.
Summary: Personal Experience It's by far the best projector I ever have enjoyed. I was coming from LCD, and even if LCDs have improved, I can't think of one at the same level of this one for the same price. The view experience is outstanding, the deepness of the image wonderful.
Summary: Personal Experience I am truly amazed at just how good this projector is able to produce the images it does. The first reaction from my friends is usually jaw dropping, then followed by "Oh My God". I use this in a finished basement in a room with controllable light.
Summary: Personal Experience I have owned a 5700 for two months. The projector is mounted 6 metres away from a 133" screen. Image quality is so good it is almost unbelieveable!! HDTV at 1080i is the best quality I have ever seen. DVD's are also absolutely fantastic. Set up and installation was not problem.
Summary: Personal Experience I've owned this projector for over a year now. I have owned several projectors over the years always trying to obtain that "film like" picture we all long for. This projector has provided that and more. The 5700 is the best projector I ever owned by far.
Summary: Personal Experience I now have experienced the 5700 for over one month of intensive use with many different dvd's and also do regular calibration checks with Digital Video Essentials.I live in NZ, our broadcast TV is only standard definition so I have made no attempt to use it for this source.
