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: 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 level at 2200-1 ,lums are 2300 at full mode eco mode 1800 very bright, bulb cost is around $250.00 just bought one after a yr of use, i just love mine!!!
Real Home Theaters "Professional Installer", Amazon
10 September 2009
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. Also it has no HDMI inputs and with today's technology HDMI is a must have. For home theater consider a Mitsubishi HC1500 or a Panasonic PT-AX200 be sure to read my reviews on them too.
