Summary: Personal Experience I got this projector for about $450 used with a new lamp about 3 years ago and it was one of the best electronics buys I have ever made. Picture is absolutely wonderful, some of the best black levels and shadow detail on a digital display I have seen, colors are very good and if...
Summary: Personal Experience Over 800 hours & One Year later, I am still pleased with the DT-500. I am running in eco-mode with the fan stting on "high". Fan noise at that speed does not present a problem for me and the benefits of the extra cooling far outweigh any drawbacks.
Summary: Personal Experience I've clocked in over 600 hours of HD viewing and I'm still just as pleased with this projector as I was when I first got it... I use a Sony PS3 for gaming and viewing blu-ray movies and also Toshiba HD-1a for HD-DVD movies and Comcast for HD cable viewing. Highly recommend it...
Summary: Electronics-Expo is great to deal with. Fast shipping, great packing, great customer service. Best projector under $2,000 available...hands down. Get an HDMI switcher if you have more than one HDMI device.
Summary: Shipping is fast, packing is good, price is reasonable within our budget. Most of all, we are pretty satisfied with the quality of this Sharp projector after doing a lot of research. Image is very ideal even it is projected just on the wall instead of screen.
Summary: The Sharp DT-500 has performed extremely well with great picture clarity and excellent reliability. I'm using it with a Goo paint on screen and the image is tremendous. The colors really come to life. For the price, I highly recommend this product.
Summary: I was not able to find a better projector with a short throw lense. I am able to get approx 125" image from about 12' distance. Awesome picture quality with HDMI. It does have limitations.. not much room to adjust the image vertically.
Summary: Personal Experience Great picture, great price, but I'm on my 2nd one in 3 months and need to get a 3rd. The first one's lamp went out in two months and the 2nd one has a power on/off problem. I am giving it one more shot because I heard they were good. Problems Lamp out in 2 months.
Summary: Personal Experience Overall, the Sharp DT-500 is a great projector. My situation had the ceiling mounted pj 9â€™ from a 80â€� wide screen and with the zoom I could get a 2.34:1 image to fill the width of the screen. I used the THX calibrator to make minor adjustments to achieve an excellent image.
