  • Summary: Buying experience taught me a lot about buying used projectors! The unit was sold as having a "bright picture". Projector was received unpacked and hooked up in my theater. I could hardly wait to view after all the great things I read on the internet about this unit.

  • Summary: Personal Experience My projector has been great. One dead pixel, but I can live with it. I've had it for 3 years and never had to change the bulb. Problems Yesterday when I turned it on, it turned itself off after about 10 seconds. I called sanyo and they said to try changing the bulb.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I have owned this projector for over two years and still have yet to replace the bulb. If installed properly and maintained, you should have no problem with bulb life. Picture is great, easy to use, and overall a great projector. Problems None.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I absolutely love my PLV-70 projector. I built a home theater with a 93" Da-Lite screen permanently mounted about 14 feet away and the picture is awesome. I use the Sony DirecTv HD receiver and the HD pictures are outstanding, espicially games shown on ESPN HD.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I actually found a leftover Studio Experience edition of this model. The projector is bright as promised. HD movies look superb - I couldn't see screen door at 90" screen size.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Extremely poor bulb life and bulb warranty. I am about to order my 4th bulb in 26 months of use. On e lamp lasted 150 hours another 300. At $450 each and only a 30 day warranty, this Sanyo product sucks.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I have owned this projector for 2 years,one dead pixel,was repaired in 6 days,and have never had to replace the bulb once. This unit is not meant to be placed in warm areas,and smokers. If this unit is used properly,it works perfect.
