Summary: Personal Experience Sometimes in credit-crunched times one may have the best part of a HT system & think... wait a minute my LCD just doesn't fit the sound. Hmmm maybe i'l get a projector. This PJ must have made waves back in 2004 because the bluray 1080i picture is Superb,yeah even in 2013. PC native 720p is also excellent along with upscaled or native HDTV.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought this projector back in 03' and it still is preforming. I Have yet to buy a new bulb! At this point when it goes I may just buy a new projector! I just ordered a Blu-Ray player and we will see how it digests the 720P from it. Till now I've just been using a DVD std player and it works just fine! I Have a home made 98" diag screen of (Melamine) which works fine!
Summary: Personal Experience I bought this when I returned from the desert in January 2003! I chose this one over the panasonic at the time becuase of the lens shift and that allowed me to be mnore flexible with where i put it. It's still running great! Still I've had almost 7 years of use on this thing. I can't complain. Problems I am starting to have the blue haze in the corner but it's very minor and I only notice it when there's a white background.
Summary: Personal Experience Well I said I would post again, and after a year all I can say is ...I LOVE THIS PJ!!! Now with that said, I am now upgrading to the PLV-Z5. This was a great first experience with a projector. To bad this PJ is hard to find anymore for the first timer. Thank you Projector Central for being here!!! Problems Just keep the filter clean.
Summary: Personal Experience Purchased at B&H 9 months ago on sale for $1K. Have used almost daily for ~3-4 hrs per day. Picture is clear, of high resolution, exhibiting good color. Some minor vertical banding is evident on flat backgrounds - blue sky, clouds- but I hardly ever notice it unless I look for it. Works best in a darkened room. Very quiet. Manual Lens XY shift is a real plus for offset projection.
Summary: Personal Experience I love my projector, I've had it for a year or so and it works like a charm, I have a huge screen 130" and the pic from 13' is flawless even on a wall, can't wait to get my dalite HCCV screen next week, anyone with this projector has any advice on what settings work best? like gamma, sharpness, contrast..etc, should I adjust it like I would my LCD computer monitor?
Summary: Personal Experience This is an update on a report that I made last December. I've now had the projector for a year. I've experienced no problems whatsoever. I'm still on my original bulb. I probably have 300 hours on the machine with frequent moves. If you are on the fence about buying a projector because you can't afford to furnish a home theater - get off the fence. Upstairs, where the furniture is, we project on a white wall, and it looks great.
Summary: Personal Experience I received z2 florida based on line seller.It took 6days for the delivery. Before buying that I was most concerned about the size of the screen. UPS delivery guy gave me a tip to use vinyl coated fablic.I ran to the fablic store where I found 54"(137cm)width vinyl coated fablic.I made 6meter wide 210cm long screen in a living room. Picture quality?
Summary: Personal Experience Ive had my pl-2 for 3 days now,and am blown away by the picture. I'm watching HD at 8 1/2' wide. WOW!! Thanks to this site and all the reviews, this is the PJ I decided on. The price was unbeatable to. $1054, free shipping and a free Mitsubishi Progressive DVD player. Problems None.
Summary: Personal Experience I got my z2 and I was blown away by the quality of the pic and I don't even have a screen, just a beige wall, and HD looks spectacular, better than any movie theater I've even been to.
