Summary: Personal Experience replacing the bulb with one of the newer phillips UHP designs really pays off in this projector. much brighter, closer to 1000 lumens.. 6000-10,000 hrs per bulb, and initial brightness lasts until the last day the bulb runs. also 1.0mm gap burns brighter and no tungsten deposits. this is a great projector if in good condition and u are paying ANYTHING less than whats at futureshop right now, ull get better value.
Summary: Personal Experience Very good picture quality. This projector is very light and easy to move around. I've used this as a replacement for a home theater projector and was satisfied with the results. The picture is crisp and clean with great colors. Loooonnnnggg lasting lamp makes this a great buy. Problems I had a similar problem as another reviewer - the internal power supply became unplugged.
Summary: Personal Experience I had bought this projector to tamper around with. I was gona try fitting an ENX bulb in it and forceing it to use cheap bulbs,it was soposed to have a burned out bulb. well when I recieved it I opened it to find that the lamp ballast was unpluged I dont know why maby it was droped. anyway it turned out the machine only has 309 hours on the bulb and these bulbs last 4000 hours!!! I win... the seller was OWN3D! haha. but it also had bad fans...
Summary: Personal Experience lx1 is perfect for mating with pc Problems when using a mirror to allow for a larger image in a small room, there is no keystoning so u have to really play a lot to get a perfectly 4:3 image. we managed 9.5 feet x 9.5 feet (ceiling height max for us)!
Summary: Personal Experience Great projector.. small and not to loud. Excellent color and XGA quality is crisp. I'd buy another....and lamps last over 4000 hours. Problems Fan stays on low when off? ?? ? ?
Summary: Personal Experience Great projector - I've had mine for about 6 months now. Awesome for movies, consoles games, and for a PC monitor - and great lamp life. I've seen these selling around $1,000 now, which is what most SVGA projectors sell for, and this unit is XGA. It's my first projector so I'm a little biased towards it, but I've seen quite a few other projectors and this one holds up very well in comparison.
Summary: Personal Experience Great projector all around, worked great for a home theatre, awesome remote and awesome color quality! Very bright, and bulb lasts forever! I have had 2 of these, and I would get another. For the price right now you can't beat this one. Problems both of me LX1's tend had some hot spots on dark screens, where the spot is a bit lighter, it can be resolved by adjusting the contrast and brightness.
