  • Summary: Personal Experience Hi, i'm PJ road warrior. Purchased this cs1 in 2002 in Europa, brand new. it has now 1367hrs on the first lamp. When i do "Cinema-rural" down here in Argentina the cs1 goes with me, lots of dust and bad roads. I have to clean the unit often, disasembling the PJ to get the the lcds, lamp optics etc clean, the filters are made for home/office use i guess. Anyway, it still works great in a dark room or at night open-air(hey, 600 ansi aren't 2500).

  • Summary: Personal Experience I had posted before. I would like to add that I'm starting to see the blue tint at the bottom of my screen and I'm near 1300 hours. The bottom 5% has a blue tint when the screen is solid black. I can't see the blue tint while there is a picture in this area.

  • Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector and has worked very well over the last 4 years. I'm still on my original bulb (~1200 hours). I have not seen the blue tint others have talked about. Overall great expirience with my model. Problems I have encoutered a couple bothersome hardware problems. The video-in hardware piece did not hold up for long. It is very loose and takes alot of figitting to get the video signal to read.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Got one used and worked great for about 1 year. Then the infamous blueness began. You can get this model for cheap but I would not recommend it. It won't last long. Problems The blue problem occurred for me, like most others. A blue haze began at the bottom of the image and has been creeping up the screen for the past few months.

  • Summary: Personal Experience A very late review of my VPL-CS1, but none the less.. Same problem occured for me as for many others, the blueish sensation which "burned in" the menus and stills, and cannot be repaired at a reasonable cost. Sony doesn't even care, as the model has been discontinued. However, I cleaned it throughout with canned air and some of the problems disappeared, but the annoying blueish screen is still there.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Great "starter" projector until you are ready to go permanent. Great image and ultra-small. Problems Would like the unit to be able to "cut off" areas of screen (ie when showing 16:9 instead of blank bands).
