Summary: Personal Experience I've had my X3 since Oct 2005 & for the most part loved it. I overcame the noise by ceiling mounting it in a closet & projecting thru a small opening into the home theater room. Then the right edge got dark & started slowly moving left. See problems for more on this. I've carefully cleaned the lamp screens every 2 months & my original lamp is up to 1558 hours & working fine.
Summary: Personal Experience I have 18 of these in a commercial setting. They run 12-15 hours per day. Iâ€™ve gotten 5000+ hours on some of my lamps (others are around 3000hrs), but at $300ea, I would hope so. Customer service said to send them the unit and $250 service fee, and they would look at it, then charge me if any needed to be fixed. Are you kidding me!?!? As soon as I can switch to anther brand, I will.
Summary: Personal Experience the worse service dept I have ever seen. I got my projector new and it did not work right.Took two months just to get auth. for repair the got it returned back still the same. Given a hard time but finnly got auth to return for 2nd repair. Now 4 months no projector and almost 1/2 of the warenty is gone. and they wont even respond to me!
Summary: Personal Experience Everything seemed great for the most part. Problems 500 hours into the bulbs life it blew on me. This is BS and I am waiting to see if Infocus will do anything to help at all. I mean come on 1/8th of the expected life and the projector bulb goes out. What the heck is up with that.
The Infocus X3 is the perfect family investment, for films or PC

Excerpt: The X3 projector is a great projector for family use, especially for DVDs and home cinema. The lamp use is excellent but I had to be careful to always clean the filter to maximise the lamp life as lamps are very expensive. In my opinion, the X3 is very easy to use, and has easy installation onto any surface (even a wall) for projection with little space needed.
Conclusion: es un buen proyector. tiene buena resolucion. le falta poder manejar los angulos trapezoidales superior e inferios. el cable de datos que le premite proyectar a buena resolucion es casi imposible de cnseguir. asi que el proyector sirve solo en resolucion s video. es mejor comprar uno con hdmi o dvi real.
