Summary: Personal Experience Since more than three years I am using this model and I have to say no single negative word in its subject.Very good image quality and easy to use menu make the use of this equipment as pleasure. Beside this I am very satisfied with the chassis for its impact resistance , which, unfortunately,I,ve personally checked.Projector is working flawlessly despite the big crack in the bottom of the cabinet formed by accidentely striking the edge of the table.
Summary: Personal Experience I have used this projector for over a year to show video events to audiences of up to 100 people. I purchased it used and have been pretty happy with it. It gives a good clear picture with good color depth and reasonable contrast. It can be seen in normal room light though it doesn't have enough brightness not to be washed out. The controls are pretty straight forward. It is much more versatile with a vga input rather than s-video input.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for one year. The picture in GREAT with DVD and awesome with 480P DVD and computor. VHS is kind of fussy. For $999 there is not a better projector for home use on the market close to this price. Better than many rated at 1,200 ansi lumins. Better than going to the movie theater. Problems None at all.
Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector and I love it... had it for 7 months now! LCD being LCD, blacks are not impressive but good enough. Screen door is hardly noticeable from 12 ft away (100" screen). Very easy to use. For the money, a great deal. Problems A few problems... when making adjustments to the colors in "menu", the project froze on me and I had to shut the power off to "reboot"... not a good thing and will decrease bulb life.
