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: 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.
Summary: [I've been an Ed. Tech. for 37 years] Dang this Sharp XR-30X DLP projector I just bought! I got it for our elementary school's auditorium gatherings because our 3 other projectors are getting rather popular for classroom use lately. So I set it up with a couple of the others..
Summary: I am the lead installer for a company that installs RealHomeTheaters, so hopefully my experience can be of some help. This projector has a 1024x768 resolution which is a 4:3 ratio. So, in 16:9 mode (widescreen) your effective pixels will not be true HD.
Summary: I chose this product because it was the cheapest xga resolution front end projector I could find. It's been great. I highly recommend it. Large plasmas only get a little better picture than this and they're much more expensive and bulky.
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...
Summary: I have been using this projector for classroom Power Point presentations and it has been great. It works fine in a well lit environment, although if you have very detailed graphics or want richly saturated colors you may have to dim the lights.
