Summary: I own the this great projector from when it first came out aprox 5 years ago. Then i paid a good part 5 grand for it and well worth it. Still with the orignal lamp and all other parts. The 1080P images are amazing,some of the best i have ever seen. Only time i would ever replace this PJ is if we started broadcasting in a higher res than 1080P, or if 3D really takes of.
Summary: Personal Experience I did a lot of research before I bought this projector back in early 2008. Before buying the Optoma HD81-LV I had been to two CES shows in Las Vegas where this was the flag-ship model at the Optoma booth. At those shows it projected a fantastic image on one of the larger screens used by competitors at CES.
Summary: Personal Experience I replaced my Infocus 7205 with this unit and I'm very happy. The picture is to die for crystal clear. Problems I have not had a single problem and I have had it for 8 months!!!
Summary: Personal Experience I JUST BOUGT IT AND EXCANGE IT FOR MY HD72 THIS IS THE BEST PROJECTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN BEARING IN MIND I ALSO OWNED THE LATEST SONU EQUALIA WHICH WAS TERRIBLE!!! GO AND BUY IT I GOT IT IN ATHENS GREECE FROM A POWER BUY AT USD 4500 IT WORTH EVERY CENT I HAVE A VERY BIG STEWART SCREEN AND IS BETTER THAN GOING TO THE CINEMA!!!!
