Summary: Use the HDMI on this one and you will not believe the difference in the sharpness of the picture. Switch between the video input and the HDMI connection to see the difference. This Unit doesn't have Movie zoom feature for the picture, Just have to get the Full screen movies. Does have the manual zoom to adjust the size on the screen so no exact measurements before mounting.
Excellent value for a wide format (Theater) projector.

Summary: I've had this projector for about 2 1/2 years and it has perfermed amazingly. I am currently on the original bulb with over 4800 hours on it. I use it as my primary tv in the house on a 90" screen. The picture is pretty good and the noise is almost un-noticable (you have to try to listen for it). Drawbacks are you'll need sound (I never used the mini-speaker it comes with) and it's not 1080p although it does support 1080p source.
low-end HD Projector. The price is a huge bargain considering the quality.

Summary: This is, to be short, a lower-end HD Projector. The price is a huge bargain considering the quality and features you get with this PJ. The Lamps last between 3500 and 4000 hours, supports 720p(native) and 1080p inputs, is very quiet, and has a cool little remote that pops into the body when you don't need it out. The only downside really is that if you lose the remote, you'll have no way to control your projector beyond the power button.
Pros: One of the best for the money. paid $600 for mine. Tiger direct .com great color, excellent for watching sports, football , golf in HD. Great picture for the price. Out performs Epson's lower end 720p LCD projectors as i replaced it with this one. Will prob upgrade to 1080p in a couple years.
Cons: the remote controls everything so if remote breaks this projector will be useless.
Summary: I have had this projector for about 6 mo now and could not be more pleased. The picture quality is top-notch (especially with PS3 games and blu-ray). I had it set up in a large room, brightly and clearly displaying a 130" screen. Even on a textured, lightly colored wall, the picture quality was incredible, even to the point where my friends were saying things like, "Why would you ever get a normal TV? This is as good as it gets.
Summary: Personal Experience I had another In-Focus projector for many years (LP-530) so I was inclined to prefer their products. I have had the X-9 for two weeks now and am extremely satisifed. The remote is a little disappointing but I got used to it. The only complaint, and this is minor, the projector and the cable box (Motorola DCH3200) seem to fight with each other but then I may not be finished with the tweaking process. There is a Denon AVR-2808 in between.
Summary: Picked up one of these projectors for £430 end of line stock. Ive now had it for 5 years and has never let me down. Have replaced the lamp once after about 3400 hours of viewing! Much better value than buying a tv. Will always buy infocus for projectors.
Summary: For a projector of this nature you can easily pay £1-2k. I needed one for a business I am starting, and I needed a good quality projector, with a clear picture. It also needs to connect with several devices, without being complicated. To put it simply - I got what I wanted. In fact this projector is so good it took one of my deliberately 'bad' slides in PowerPoint and made it so good, I had to modify the slide to make it deliberately difficult to read!
