Summary: I ordered the Mitsubishi HC3800 projector from this seller and it was delivered quickly and was as described. The unit was in great condition (like new) and even came with a free replacement bulb. This is a replacement projector as the main board chip went out on my last HC3800.
Summary: I've been using this machine for 2 1/2 years now and its been great- it has shut down 4 times in very hot & humid weather when I didn't use my AC. The picture is great. I project a 110" picture against a light grey wall from about 18 feet. The projector is shelf mounted only about 2" off the floor.
Summary: Overall this projector can not be beat at this price or twice the price. Buy it
Pros: This truely is a great projector. The picture is perfect. There is no rainbow effect even if you try looking for it. Projecting on 122" screen the colors are amazing. It does project low (or high depending on floor or ceiling) so you must have a good place to mount. I am on a ceiling mount five i...
Cons: I too am having a issue with w/ a 30ft hdmi cable. I have tried this cable on 6 devices and it works fine. However it does not work from htpc to this projector. Tried 4 other cables from htpc to projector all worked fine. Projetor seems to be picky with cable quality or length. (all that worked w...
Summary: Got this about a year ago when they had the free bulb deal going on (which they honored even after the expiration of the deal). Mitsubishi is 2 for 2 in my book for quality, reasonably priced projectors.
Pros: Had a HC3100 before this. It lasted 2 years and had a hardware malfunction when it got some brick dust in it after construction was rattling my place. This one has lasted a year and I've seen very little loss of resolution/brightness. It's relatively silent and has been very dependable. I game an...
Cons: In the past couple of months it has developed this little tick where it will randomly shut off after about an hour or so. It does this about 10% of the time and only when I'm running my computer through it. I just have to wait for it to cool down and boot it back up and its fine the rest of the t...
Summary: This projector is amazing for the price. Great colors, fantastic contrast, full HD. It may need some color adjusting to fit your room, but you won't be disappointed. It doesn't have a dynamic iris, but it's still great, otherwise it'd be in the $2500+ price range.
Summary: I had a Mitsubishi HC 900 and it gave me good service for well over 3 years. Even now it is serving me and when Mitsubishi launched the HC3800 1080P DLP, I could not wait. I got this and have been using it since March 2010. It's incredible and the pixels are amazing.
Top-drawer picture quality and value, though awkward to position

Summary: For many theater installs, the HC3800 and HC4000 replacement will be the best 1080p projectors in their price range. Epson's 8100 and 8350 are strong alternatives. This is my second 1080p projector model. I bought it from Dell after first trying and discarding three Viewsonic Pro8100 projectors.
Pros: -Works really well -Great quality for the price -Free replacement lamp with rebate!
Cons: Currently having problems with a 50ft HDMI cable, HC3800 does not want to display 1080p using this cable (1080i works) . (I know it might not be the cable because 1080p is displayed on all of my home TV's using the same cable)
Summary: I'd recommend this product, great price, great deal with the lamp offer. Don't waste money on a projection screen if you can just paint a wall with matte white paint.
Pros: Fantastic picture quality using an Xbox 360 over VGA connection. Playing Halo Reach in 1080p on a 100 inch screen is quite fun. We also use it for home movies and even did an outdoor movie night with an 84in pull-up projection screen. Free lamp is a great deal.
Cons: A little tough to get the right placement, works out well sitting on the bookshelf in the back of the room. I had to find very thin books for it to sit on to adjust one side. The image tends to project higher than you'd think, I believe that's because it's meant to be on a mount and it would be u...
Summary: Environment and Mounting: The projector was ceiling mounted in a windowless basement theater room about 16 feet from my 92x52 inch da-mat screen (gain = 1.0). The top of the screen is about 15 inches below the ceiling.
