Used for over 5 years....Great projector, but now it's outdated.
30 November 2012
Summary: This was my first projector. I bought it refurbished on ebay in 2006 for $800. Once I got it set up I was immediately impressed by the picture, it was bright, clear, and colorful. From what I have read the resolution of this projector is the same as what you get from a standard DVD.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had the projector since June 2006, just about 5 1/2 years of use, and still running very well. The original lamp has 3645 hrs, as of this writing. I've always used it on the low lamp setting, and allowed the lamp to cool with the fan running, and not naturally.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had my SP48055 for about 4 years now. Don't know what all the trashing about Infocus projectors. I'm on my 3rd bulb. Original bulb lasted about 1500 hours, second bulb 3000 hours. I started out with StdDef DirectTV and now I'm using Comcast HDTV.
Summary: I was lucky enough to get this projector from a friend for 200 and can honestly say its the best purchase I ever made. I have it hooked up in my living room on a 10ft by 6ft screen. Even though I set the seats only 10ft from the screen the picture is amazing.
Summary: Personal Experience Buyer Beware! Do not buy these used projectors. They make up with 2004 for 2006. Now at them the worn out colour wheel. Repair of a colour wheel is equal to cost of a new projector. I have bought one such on ebay. It has broken in a month of use.
Summary: Personal Experience This projector did not made my home theater experince a good one. The picture is fine, but the fan noise is quite anoying as my projector is just over our hean in our theater room.
