Summary: Well i owned this for 2 years just recently the bulb went dead. So i purchased one off amazon for 130 which is a great deal. Once i recieved it and put it into the projector the screen came up for couple secounds of course of forgot to reset the bulb in the menu before shuting it down.
Summary: I purchased this unit in December of 2008 and have been more than pleased with it. The first thing I did was look for a calibration guide on-line so it would be perfect. After doing that I tweaked it a little bit so it fit my eye for optimal enjoyment.
Summary: Personal Experience Great picture quality and brightness levels for the price... Have to compete with a skylight but does great nonetheless. I especially like the lens shift, it made things very easy when mounting on my uneven ceiling. Problems Some video issues, nothing permanent.
Summary: Personal Experience This is a good projector for enthusiasts. It may not be a good projector for projector fanatics. It's easy to use and the menus are simple yet provide excellent configuration options. It is (was) well priced at the time of purchase. 1080 movies are spectacular.
Summary: 5 out of 5 stars as it's probably the best image you can get for sub $2K. The image can obviously be more clear BUT I do not think it's possible unless you either spend more money on a higher end projector or get a professional to do a custom install.
Summary: I have a 1080P and a 720P HD Plasma in my house as well as another 720P projector so ordering this thing was a no brainer when building my dedicated theater. I was however a bit concerned that other positive reviews on here were a bit overstated and the unit may not have been put through the level...
Summary: This projector is a vastly superior value. I have owned mine for 8 years. It has over 10,000 hours, and is on its fifth bulb. I take care to keep the filter clean, but no other maintenance has been required. Color is still stunning, and the picture crisp and vibrant.
Summary: This is my first projector and so there is not much I can compare it with. First the pros: a) Great value for money. This is the first sub $2k 1080p projector I found. b) Simple to setup. It has two HDMI and two component inputs.
