Summary: I received this projector not working. I diagnosed the issue in the power supply and I fixed it. It really is a nice projector. Even in 2013 (almost 2014) it still looks fantastic. Its DVI input makes it ideal to use with HD gaming and even blu-ray devices.
Summary: This Sharp PG-M20X may say it is only 1900 lumens, but it as bright as some 2500's. I use it as my Home Theater Projector and I'm blown away every time I use it. i was going to sell it but since I have an extra lamp and plenty of life on the lamp I currently have. It's a keeper.
Summary: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST LOOKING PROJECTORS WITH OPTIONS GALORE. I HAVE OWNED OVER 200 AND FIND POUND FOR POUND MORE PEOPLE COMPLEMENT THE CLEAR IMAGE OVER ALL OTHERS. THIS IS OFTEN SOLD AT A GREAT PRICE UNDER IT'S VALUE AND LAMPS HAVE BECOME AFFORDABLE.
Summary: I decided to purchase this Sharp multimedia projector because, though a few years old, it is a top of the line device. Upon arrival I tested it with my MacBook and it worked flawlessly and the image looked as crisp and sharp as the image in a move theater.
Summary: Personal Experience purchased for $3600.00 ran fine until just out of warranty. power suply failure with only 1100 hours on the original 2000 hour bulb. sent to sharp to get estimate (Cost me $78.00 to ship it to them).
Summary: Personal Experience From the time I received this unit it has run flawlessly for almost 3 years. Never had any problems. Well worth the $. Problems Recently the lamp has been failing to come on, it took two times or so to get it to light up. The real problem is contacting Sharp.
Summary: Personal Experience After 4 returns to Sharp for on/off problems and finally getting management involved the unit is cranking! That is untill i tried to hook into a HDTV off a Comcast unit. Seems the projector cant handle DVI -2. Only DVI 1. Bummer. But it CRANKS off a DVD.
Summary: Personal Experience Excellent. I have purchased 3 over the past 2 years for home theaters. You can't beat the quality for the price. I have paid $700-1,100 for each. I use the 100" diag. Da-Lite snap screens and the pictures are just perfect. I have only used the S-Video input.
Summary: Personal Experience The DVI / RGB / PC combined input is combersome and not user friendly. Replacement lamps are a bit pricey. Problems I am one of the lucky ones that has a power virus that causes the unit to quit randomly. My brand new unit now will not boot up.
Summary: Personal Experience I've been very happy with this projector. Once I got the firmware upgrade all has been well. I still think this unit represents remarkable value. My only issue with it is the noise level. I wish it were a little quieter.
