Summary: Personal Experience My favorite road trip projector. Of all the 10 or 15 projectors in our building, this one is usually stashed in my office I love it that much. The image and color quality is very high, the resolution is decent and the setup is easy enough for my 5yr old. You can't go wrong with this projector. Problems The device is pretty loud for a small conference room even on eco setting.
Summary: Personal Experience Nice image right out of the box. After 5 min of setup, I was watching Gladiator on my livingroom wall. Looks like a nice projector for under $1000. It's less than a week old, but so far so good. Problems Fan is a little loud. Casts light outside the screen frame.
Summary: Personal Experience I always think it seems unrealistic when someone gives the full 5 stars in a review. But to be honest, I think this is a great unit. I've owned 5 projectors, and have used them mainly for home cinema. I currently use an NEC LT240K in my living room and the 170 in my bedroom - I use them equally. In terms of image quality, I often feel cheated that the 170 puts out as good an image as the far more expensive 240K!
Summary: Personal Experience Great form factor for a road warrior. Decent picture for video/movies as well. The 2X wheel speed does create the occasional "rainbow" artifact but not nearly as bad or often as an Infocus X1/X2. Overall, a superb multi-task projector. I've used this projector for >2000 hours, in Asia, Europe, and North America. It has never disappointed.
Summary: Personal Experience Very good to handle and super for trips. Tiny and light as a feather powerfull and with a good bag for transport. The ideal companion with a notebook to present wherever you are a stunning presentation.
Summary: Personal Experience Excellent for presentations being small, easy to setup and with a good picture. Problems Component input uses the computer input with a special cable that is not provided. Presentation strenghts make it compromised for home theatre usage. Zoom is very limited, so moving the projector is the only way to change the size of the image significantly.
Summary: Personal Experience I have owned a few different projectors over the years, and this one is excellent! Small, unique and a beautiful picture both from a computer or from a video source. I use to have a Dell 3200MP which supposedly had double the contrast of this NEC. Well, besides the fact that the Dell was a piece of CRAP (see my review there), the NEC seems to have equal conrast AND better quality video, both in regular s-video and especially in HD format.
Summary: Personal Experience the automatic keystone correction is great. the biggest bang for my buck and in a very small and unique size format, the included tripod mount is excellent, and also works well as a ceiling mount if you drill the center hole a big larger and place a bolt on "C" clap, hang from trussing in minutes. :) GREAT road warrior gear.
Summary: Personal Experience I love this thing. The quality is as good as HD TV for half the price. It took about 5 minutes to set this up and I was watching beautiful movies like I was in a theatre. Problems Fan noise could be better.
Summary: Personal Experience A very good projector. extremely portable. very bright. looks awesome if you use it with a XBOX> HALO is a completly different game. Problems component audio input would have been nice.
