Summary: Personal Experience In 2009 our company purchased 5 of the EP1691 projectors to use in our seminars. We tavel the country and the reviews for this unit were good. Problems Since that time, 3 of the projectors have major overheat malfunctions. Two of the three projectors would shut down after the first 15 minutes of use. The third would not illuminate at all. The fault lights indicate that the lamp is overheated.
Summary: Personal Experience I thought I'd take a moment to write a review of this model, which I purchased used on eBay for $300...It was in excellent condition from the seller, with on 51 hours of use on it. It looked brand-new to me... Okay, now the review: Primary use: Watching DVDs & HD-DVDs (that's right, HD-DVDs, the format that lost to Blu-Ray, but still 720p-1080i, depending on the settings). I use a Toshiba HD-A3 HD-DVD Player on 1080i.

Likes: Good looking projector, nice color, plug and play ease of use right out of the box, included remote w/laser pointer (batteries included), comes with USB, vga & composite cable.
