Amazingly bright and versatile projector for the price

Summary: I've owned one of these for four years. The reason I'm writing this review is because I recently thought "hmnnn, I've had this projector a long time - maybe I should think about replacing it". With that in mind I spent some time researching online as well as looking at some rival models in use by friends and family. My conclusion is this: withing the limitations that it presents (mainly resolution, and to some degree noise) this is an amazing projector.
Summary: Keep in mind the cost of lamp replacement.
Pros: Bought this item for a Superbowl party. It was a bit pricey but reviews on this product is why I made my selection.
Cons: We had the projector for less than one year and the lamp when out. To purchase another lamp for this particular projector my research has put me in the price range of $193.00 - $329.00. I could go out and purchase a less expensive projector for the price of a lamp.
Summary: Personal Experience I plugged this projector to my computer via DVI and use it to surf the web, watch youtube, and DVDs/blurays. Seems to work best at 1280x720 in stretch mode. Colors are good, so are brightness and contrast. Movies are surprisingly good considering this is not a home theater projector and it only puts out 720p. I keep it in eco mode as 1800 lumens is plenty. Good for playing wii on too. 2W speakers work fine for the wii or camcorders.
Summary: This is one of the finest LCD projectors in the industry! I am enjoying the use of the projetor. I replaced my 16 year old SHARP projector with the new model. The LCD is lightweight, 15 pounds vs. 50 pounds, quiet, and best of all, I do not have to close all of the blinds to view projection during daylight hours. I was able to reuse the ceiling mount from my old SHARP with the new mount for this unit. SHARP is the BEST product in LCD projectors and ALL video products!
Summary: We are extremely please with the performance of this projector. The picture is clear and bright, with great contrast. If your looking to create a lower budget home theater, then this is a great choice. We were able to put together our projector (homemade screen)and ceiling mount, and hdmi to dvi cable for under 500 dollars.
Summary: So far, looks and runs great.....but have a suspicion about the bulb life time (2000 hours) when I look at the bulb life on the machine, it states that it only have 6 hours remaining.....I have only had it on about 1 hour to this point, so i am extremely concerned about this.
Summary: Personal Experience Produces a great image for the price. The contrast ratio is noticeable during darker scenes. Color reproduction is good. Excellent brightness for most hi-def TV shows and especially good for sports. If running in 4:3 be aware that the black bars are noticeable at top and bottom. Currently configured for 90in diagonal in 16:9 from DirecTV or a Samsung Blu-ray player. Owned for four months. Problems None.
Summary: cause its a big screen on my wall and portable... the size is very awesome and beings that im a soldier in Iraq i need all the entertainment i can get and this electronic device is by far my favorite item of entertainment :) great quality and great price... whats not to like??
Summary: I bought this for a school as a backup, substitute and installed it as such but some teacher(s) evidently (heard second-hand) complained the color was off and the Academic Dean who acts more like the President insisted I put the original back as soon as I got a lamp for it. He also insisted he only wanted new projectors and so we went about buying all new Viewsonics which are really also a cheaper brand and model.
