Summary: Personal Experience Well just to say i watch this Pj and have had it running a scaled(from a Zinwelll BLS 2000) Cable High def picture for 2-3 years,at about 10 hours a week. The picture with 720p or 1080i is stunning. Better than any plasma or lcd that i have seen so far...and its measured in feet not inches. Good remote unit, easy set up,lots of options. Also for pc users it wireless ...something or other but I have never needed,it.
Summary: Personal Experience Totally amazing kit this. Can watch 160 inch screen diameter in broad daylight. No need for full power at dusk/night - the eco mode's 1900 lumnes more than good. Contrast at 2000-1 is stunning. Very silent also which is how it should be. My advice is GO BUY if you can find one. Problems NONE AT ALL.
Summary: Personal Experience Great picture, easy to setup. I use this as my television, so it sees more use in a month than most people use a PJ in a year. I have had mine for 12 months now, and on bulb # 3. Problems "Sealed Light Path" is a friggin joke, just pop off the case and see for yourself. I routinely have to disassemble the unit to clean out dust, as well as clean the colorwheel itself with alcohol. 4 dead mirrors/pixels.
Summary: Personal Experience Awesome for the money. People are blown away, especially when I show them the difference between a component signal and s-video. Eco mode is bright enough, but for max wow factor, I crank it up.
Summary: Personal Experience We have a large room so I needed the extra throw on the lt260k (18 feet for a 100" display), otherwise I would have gone with the 240k. I did quite a bit of research on the web via projector central and finally decided to go with a bright DLP as we like to have some lighting on when watching TV via the projector. Have had this projector for 6 months and am very satisfied.
Summary: Personal Experience LT260K is an awesome machine and NEC Customer Support is excellent. Picture is clear and only a few adjustments needed to be made straight out of the box. Projecting a 84" diag. image from approx 12'. Problems Working on my second machine and this one will go back too. Problems with stuck mirrors. Don't know what's going on. Maybe a bad lot of parts. Progressive scan DVD players or better cables will not fix this problem.
Summary: Personal Experience I had this projector now for a month and I watched like ten movies with it and it works and looks great. This is one of the best projectors I had so far, and I had a lot of them. The fan noise is next to null. I forget there is a fan going at times. The projector is expensive but it is worth the money. The image is very vivid and sharp.
Summary: Personal Experience Used it for 8 months.Using it with an Anamorphic lens to see 16;9 movies.worried no DVI.Rainbow present but not concerned. Problems no difference in lamp hours even in economy mode unable to use 1080i or 720p with out DVI
Summary: Personal Experience after first trying the sanyo plv z2( which is a great projector ,,i just needed more light ) i tried this projector,i am totally satisfied as this is a great unit with an excellent picture and plenty of light ,,i couldn't imagine a better home theater projector for the buck Problems I am evidently one of the people that can see the rainbow effect from dlp projectors ,,it's most evident when a bright light is exposed during a dark scene,,hasn't really...
Summary: Personal Experience I did alot of research and almost bought a Benq or Mits 300U but found this and was astounded by the features. I can get an awesome pic on the wall or screen and the keystone/cornerstone correction is excellent for projecting from an angle (my projector is about 30degs off center). The picture is absolutely amazing, watching monsters inc.
