Summary: Personal Experience I mostly use this projector for my sky-view effect for church events, and outside night movies for the family. We push the 450" mark when using it. 4 king size sheets and 2 pine trees makes a great drive in movie. The over all performance of this unit is great. Down fall is the heat it puts out.Non so far had about a year being used weekly at a local church. They had the unit more then 3 years. Im still using the first bulb.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought it used (ebay) and it was literally torn apart. Gashes, scars, etc... But it all still work. Took a beating im sure. Got it for under 400$ with a new bulb. Tons of inputs and great res. Great sharp picture. Colours and whites could be a bit better I guess.. The only bad things are the heat it throws off - watching a movie in the summer gets pretty hot without a/c in my room. And the noise is so/so.
Summary: Personal Experience This projector has been excellent and is perfect for home cinema. I am currently using it for movies and playing ps2 games on it. I recommend using a component lead rather than a composite lead as the quality is quite poor with a composite lead. Use your own speakers as the speaker on the back of the projector sounds like earphones turned up max.
Summary: Personal Experience Overall, this has been a good projector for image quality and ease of use. We have two of this models in a medical education classroom setting and they are use about 1000 hours per year. We've owned them for just over three years. and have just begun encountered some problems Problems Of course these problems are just now surfacing after the three year warranty expired.
Summary: Personal Experience great projector, easy to set up and use. connects very well with my dell laptop. also great for playing PS2 and for watching DVD's we have one at chruch and use it for all of this and for powerpoint presentations weekly. it works great and is very reliable Problems bulb burnt out quickly, but this could have been becuase we were moving it too much. it also tends to get real hot, but it has never done anything bad becuase of this.
Summary: Personal Experience This is the first projector I have owned, but I have used lots of others when lecturing. Presentations: The general picture quality is very good. Nice colours, good contrast and plenty of adjustments. Certainly bright enough to produce a large enough image for a 100+ audience to see and take notes. Locks on very well to VGA signals, even with my Sony VAIO.
