Summary: Personal Experience The unit has a very good quality colour picture. Zoom is virtually not there. Remote control is handy and easy to use but could use backlighting for the use in a dark environment. Good value for an inexpensive unit.
Summary: The Sharp DT-100 has a great array of input possibilities, making it possible to connect a computer, laptop, DVD player and gaming system. I absolutely love watching movies on a 7 foot screen, but unfortunately the lights have to be really dim or off to get a nice clear picture. It really makes movie night a blast, not to mention playing games is fantasticly awesome.
Summary: Personal Experience At first myself and four other family members enjoyed this same projector. The picture is great and it's very easy to use. We loved watching movies on it. We bought a ceiling mount for it which worked very well. Problems However, four of the five projector's bulbs went on it. All of us did not get our full use of the bulbs, or even close for that matter. The manual says that you will get warning signs if your bulb is waring out but non of us did.
Summary: We are very happy with this projector. Using our DVD player with progressive scan gives us an excellent picture which is bright enough to be shown in a room with three windows w/o shades on a sunny day. Obviously, the results are much better with the blinds drawn or in the evening. The only issue we have had is with the adaptor which is designed to allow the use of component video out of the DVD.
Summary: Personal Experience great colour and sharpness, low noise. easy to set up. However my bulb lasted less than 20 hours and that in the economy mode.Chinese manufacturing wiil give brand names a bad name sooner rather than later. Problems bulb went after less than 20 hours in economy mode, unbelievable the low quality of those bulbs.
Summary: Personal Experience Never going to buy sharp product again. Do you hear that..Sharp Company. I bought a sharp projector and the lamp went out before thirty days. They had to send it out for repairs and now i'm stuck without it for 2 weeks now, waiting for it got get fixed. I called sharp and they said sorry nothing they can do. What kind of an answer is that. I expect a least a new unit considering its less than 30 days. Problems lamp went out in less than a month.
Summary: Personal Experience In this resolution category I think this is bar none the best projector for primary TV and DVD viewing in an exercise room. I do not use it for HD and if I had HD I would not buy at this resolution. I found it at street prices $100 less than the optoma 31. It is quiet, bright, and it offers a large screen for a short distance (it is ceiling mounted 11ft from screen).
Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector and after reading the reviews on here I decided on this one. I was not disapointed it is a great projector. I have it ceiling mounted and use it everyday for TV, Movies and games. A great addition to my 7.1 Surround Sound.
Summary: Personal Experience After 3 Days of movie watching, I am very impressed. Whether the projector is in Bright mode or Economy mode it provides an excellent image. After first trying a Benq 6100 (miserable disaster), and an Infocus 4805 (Not enough brightness), the Sharp DT100 sets a new precedence for EDTV projectors. I rented a NEC HT510 as well and found it a little soft on image quality. The Sharp handles images with ease.
