Summary: I use a Screenplay 5700 in my own home theater. Pros: 1. Colors are vivid and lamp is bright. You can buy a projector screen if you want, but using a flat wall for the screen is perfectly fine.
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 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: Excellent Picture. Deep darks, bright and excellent colors. Simple setup. Open box, plug and play. Manual focus and zoom is simple to use. You don't need a lot of room to have a 90" screen in your house. Only drawback is the fan noise. But can be get used to.
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.
