Would recommend

ecrpyro43, Ebay
17 March 2013
  • Summary: I love the projector, one of the best I've seen and I think a great price for the quality of the product and picture. I bought mine used with around 650 hours on it and I think I got a steal. Great projector and now my only problem is finding even more great movies to watch and not spending all my free time, or not free time, using it :).

Used projector purchase

8155steveh, Ebay
5 December 2010
  • Summary: I was skeptical about what I consider a large purchase sight unseen, but I can't believe the deal I got. It works perfectly and I got a great deal. I now have a ten foot high definition television! Who wouldn't love that? I did some research and I paid less than 25% of the retail cost. There is only 221 hours on the original bulb, that lasts between two and five thousand hours. I purchased a spare bulb on eBay also, just in case. It is truly a great deal.

Fantastic - well worth the money

  • Summary: The reviewer is correct about bright rooms - I have this projector mounted to the ceiling, in a loft apartment, large windows and lots of sun mean that day-light viewing is pretty limited. But, bring on the evening and watching the 5500 with a 96" image size is an amazing event. All HD sources at this size look fantastic: Wii (480i), PS3, Dish, over-the-air HD and Blue-ray, even up-converted DVD's screen well.

Just buy it already

  • Summary: Great projector. Price is right and picture is great. Haven't even seen 1080p on it because i have an older xbox with no HDMI. That sucks but the picture is awesome even at 1080i. I've only noticed motion blur once while watching speed racer but that movie was crappy anyway. Just buy it. You know you want. It is super quiet and bulb life is extra long.

Mitsubishi HC5500 LCD Projector

3 November 2009
  • Summary: Probably one of the better projectors out there compared to the others. For the price, the picture and contrast is quite accurate. The High Definition video is really good as well. I would recommend this projector to anyone who wants a great picture and reasonably priced.

User Review

rcalhoun, Projector Central
22 October 2009
  • Summary: Personal Experience I purchased the Mitsubishi HC5500 in April 2009 during the manufacture's rebate and am EXTREMELY HAPPY. I was originally focusing on the sub $1000 720p class, but when I came across the HC5500 for under $1500, I couldn't pass it up. The clarity is simply unbelievable, I never thought a projector could produce such a vivid image. I use it in a light-controlled 14' room and the lumen output is just right.

Great 1080p Projector!

Eric Hoell "PrinceEric", Amazon
17 August 2009
  • Summary: We purchased this projector a few months ago, and still are amazed by the picture quality. We use it in a semi-dark environment, and even with the ambient light the picture looks great! The projector is very quiet - I have to listen to ever hear it. The projector does throw a log of heat. So keep the room ventilated. Great projector. Very happy with our purchase!

Everything that you would expect from a PJ

Aniruddha Khandekar "Anir", Amazon
7 June 2009
  • Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this PJ, the deciding factors for me were the Hollywood FX upscaling chip and the noise levels that are the lowest in the industry. The upscaling chip helps upscale any lower resolution image to 1080p and does it handsomely. We will not be watching blu-ray movies all the time and this was an important factor for me. As far as the noise levels are concerned, I have heard projectors that emit a low (or sometimes even high!
