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. I use it for movies (blu ray looks great) and watching regular tv. my specs - 120 inch image in basement using 1 HDMI cable running 25ft out of a onkyo mixer. Enjoy!
Summary: I Like it. Does what is supposed to do!.No complains. Its been over a year now. Still running with the same lamp. Have been using it practically everyday for atleast 3 hours in the evening. I have ordered an extra lamp just in case.I use it with the Mustang Electric projector screen, which is also awesome.
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: 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. I have thoroughly enjoyed this product and would purchase another IF I HAD TO! I was reluctant to write a review, because knowing my luck that is when the problems will begin. Thus far I have had zero complaints.
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.
Summary: I owned a Viewsonic XGA projector before. It took three tries to get a working one without overheating. You can read about it from my past review. Amazon has been amazing to work with. When it was time to replace the Viewsonic for a higher resolution projector to show photos, this Sanyo 1080P projector represented the best value. I was not disappointed. It worked perfectly from day one. It was a little big to carry it around and did not come with a case.
Summary: A few years ago I bought a new home and it had an unfinished basement area. I was trying to figure out what to do with this space. I thought gameroom, pool table, then thought about the noise and getting a little old for games. I saw a projector on TV and decided to buy one. I first bought an INFOCUS projector that did the job for a few years. People would be blown away when they would come over.
