Summary: I purchas3ed this product after carefully doing my homework. It is a highly rated product and a good price here at Amazon.I recievd the unit today after only 4 days with super saving, free shipping. HOWEVER, the unit is NOT new as described but Refurbished. This is a big disappointment and I will be returning the unit. A local retailer will have it on sale, NEW for $749. in a couple of weeks.
Summary: Although it is no longer available on Amazon, I still want to write this review to balance out the wrongful 1 star review(based on vander's fault) I own one of this Sharp PG-B10s projector (refurb. from Frys) since Thanksgiving 2004, as a entertainment projector, and it still works well up to today, the black friday of 2010(Nov.26.2010)!
Summary: Personal Experience I've had my projector for 5 months. It's awesome. I bought it for $599 new. I have my projector on the ceiling and am shooting a 110" 16X9 picture. The picture is great. I have it hooked up to a Cox DVR and an over the air HD box for all my local channels. I am using the VGA input via component video. (This is a must, much better than S-Video). I bought the adapter.
Summary: Personal Experience This projector can,t be beat for the price.Got mine for ($599) Projecting on a da-lite 110 inch screen. The image is bright and clear.No screen door at too times screen width.This baby will light up a room.In econo mode the room does not have to be totally dark. With the lens shift it can be placed anywhere in the room.
Summary: Personal Experience I purchased this projector at a warehouse type store last Oct (2004)($799) and have set it up in my finished basement. I bought an aftermarket dvd support bracket and have mounted it to the ceiling. I display on a flat white wall about 8 feet away, giving a 80inch diagonal picture. It works great! 6 months ago I got a HD cable box and when connected to the vga/componet input, images look fantastic, great for HD football game broadcasts!
Summary: Personal Experience I picked up this piece of heaven up for 410 buck new, and its crazy. I just built a movie theater with 3 level stadium seating with a few of my college friends for our house and put this projector in there for an image size around 150-200 and it looks great. I have yet to get a dvi output dvd player, but even component looks amazing. The digital cable is also crazy like watching the nba finals, not to mention video games.
Summary: Personal Experience I came to this site to read the review and get detal info. All the review I read was postive so I order one, and it work perfect. I place an ATI HDTV wonder card in my computer and use the projector as a monitor. The only thing I have to say is "WOW" it is nice, and that is with a $60.00 70" by 70" screen. I had some friends over to watch march maddness and everyone love my projector.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought this for $499 and all I can say is "WOW"!!!! I haven't experienced the screen door effect but I generally run this machine at a res higher than its native. I watched the opening of the Incredibles and this project is just that - incredible. Problems Extremly bright for my space, had to move the projector back - lights up my room like a Christmas tree. My old projector kept the surrounding area dark - not so with this one.
Summary: Personal Experience I picked this up after looking to get a home theatre porjector for my basement. I didnt want to spend a lot at first not knowing how one would work in my home, so when I saw this for 899 with a 300 rebate brand new, I jumped on it. After reading at AVS about a method for a DYI screen. I built my own 122" screen, set up my PG-B10S, hooked up a new 6.1 DD System and I was very pleased with the results.
