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.
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.
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".
Summary: We use this model for PowerPoint and videos for training at work. We have bought only one so far, but we will be swapping out all of our Sanyo's with these, ASAP. Low initial cost and cheap lamps are a big plus.
Pros: Beautiful picture. Easy to use. Runs quietly. No excess heat. Low operating cost. A definite Win/Win.
Summary: Personal Experience really good video for a mult media projector ! it could be your home theater projector , have had em all and installed most others. razor sharp HD video with excellent contrast .
Summary: history on net of almost no customer support and warranty- does not have a monitor out that i see for simultaneous computer viewing (like others)... does not auto pick up my elmo or computer like others---seems like a dud
Pros: dlp seems very sharp
Cons: history on net of almost no customer support and warranty- does not have a monitor out that i see for simultaneous computer viewing (like others)... does not auto pick up my elmo or computer like others---seems like a dud
Summary: Personal Experience I feel obligated to leave a review here since I used this site extensively while I was looking for a projector. I was looking for a projector to use for a home theater "on the cheap". I've been using the projector for about a month, and all-in-all I'm pretty happy with it.
Summary: dont listen to the review that it's not for the home theater,first using the stretch mode 16:9 looks great 1080i looks great from my comcast hd, also i'm using panasonic 1080p upconvert dvd recorder and my movies look great, buy a dvi-hdmi cable with a hdmi switcher and you'll be fine, good contrast...
