Summary: Personal Experience Can not say enough about this machine 4900 hours on the original bulb almost all in low mode. Every time a vacume theater I clean filter never had a issue. I will be going with Panasonic again when the 1080 models get under $2500.
Summary: Personal Experience Is versatile and can be positioned anywhere. We use from ceiling mount for viewing TV/movies at home. Have 8 foot screen. Room must be dark. Spent big bucks on DVI-D cable but picture is not better than with regular video cable.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought it new in 2003 and have been LOVING it ever since! I set it to low power, now have over 5000 hours on the original bulb- it still looks good! I think those having bulb life issues need to read the care portion of the manual. Set it up, dont move it and clean the filter!

Summary: Personal Experience I purchased the 300U in January 2003. I have over 2000 hours on the lamp and the picture is still bright, and incredibly beautiful. HD signal and a controlled light room deliver an outstanding picture.
Summary: Personal Experience Best pick under $1900, but bulb eng. is terrible. We now put a TV in front of our screen and use that instead - move the TV when we want to enjoy a movie. Great projector but bulbs are a real problem - maybe with Panasonic in general - can't be sure.
Summary: Personal Experience I purchased a PT-L300U in March '03 and have been very happy with the performance of the projector thus far. I use it for DVDs exclusively (low power, cieling mounted) and less than 500 hrs on the original lamp.
