Summary: This projector (Sanyo PLV-1080HD) is replacing a Sharp projector that was 720P at its best resolution and all I can say is, "WOW, what a difference". I am projecting a 9 foot wide image and there is virtually no "screen door" effect, even when you're within two or three feet of the image. I could see the screen door from 15 feet away with the old projector.
Summary: I hooked this up before I bought a screen, I'm just projecting it on to my terracotta wall. It still looks incredible. All my friends love it. I always have people over watching TV when I get back to my house. Currently it's the French Open. My friends can't get enough of it, and I've had a few friends tell me they are bringing over blow up mattresses to sleep over so they can watch the world cup here.
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. Lamp life is a problem....
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. There are also a lot of inputs including HDMI. Knowing all that I know now, if I had to buy it again, I definitely would. Problems There is no keystone functionality.
