  • Summary: Personal Experience We have quite a few of these installed at our school and nearly all of them have had the same problem. Not powering up, we believe due to a semiconductor problem. We have some cheaper Sanyos which have been brilliant! More reliable and brighter!

  • Summary: Personal Experience This is an awesome "starter" projector for simple home theatre use... great for XBOX or PS2. Although you do want to have a good distance =12' viewing distance to minimize the 'screendoor effect'. This projector is OUTSTANDING as a data/presentation projector. Even in a fully lit room you can get an excellent picture with more than adequate brightness. Problems doesn't accept any image but video (composite) S-Video, and VGA.

  • Summary: Personal Experience This is a cheap great projector, the only "bad" thing is the screendoor-effect, but all in all a great buy, brightness is good, and it dosen`t have to be total darkness in the room

  • Summary: Personal Experience Got this projector dirt cheap on ebay and it was well worth the investment. Image is bright, good color, quiet operation, text is clean and legible, and overall I'm pretty happy with the video performance as well...for the price. Problems The screen door effect is pretty noticable, which does detract from the image. Also generates a fair bit of heat.

  • Summary: Personal Experience First projector, use it mainly for watching DVDs via a laptop. Very please with picture, very sharp and clear (this is just on a white wall as well, no screen). Compaired to a 1024 x 768 Sony CX5 that I use to borowed, hardly any noticable difference and the CX5 was more than twice the price and the fan waas very noise (as older model)

  • Summary: Personal Experience Problems Problems Problems Problems The projectors has been a problem from the start. When the projectors are used for the first time in the day they often have to be restarted before they will work. We bought 8 of these at the same time and are worried about the purchase. The signal is also dropped at random whilst watching videos.
