Summary: first and foremost this projector was a great deal, i bought it for 199.00 used, its a solid name brand and they make a 15 prong to hdmi cable for hd. when i recieved it it would not properly focus but after some research i found out it was condensation on the lenses and had to let it run for 2 hours to heat it off. it is very attractive and new runs for around 800 to a grand, if another comes for sale at this low of a price i would consider it a steal.
Summary: Personal Experience We wanted a projector for home use but did not have the budget for the 'home theatre' range of projectors. We got this Sony (actually the XGA VPLEX4W version) to replace the work Dell one we were using. We have been very pleased. The picture quality (onto plain wall) is much better than we are used to & great for movies. The colour balance is not perfect but we will continue to experiment. The unit is also much quieter.
Excerpt: I bought this device as a part of home cinema and i intended to watch DVDs .the maximum resolution of 800x600 pixels is pretty enough for most commersially available DVDs. with its bright illumination making it unnessesary to use the maximum lighting. setting light mode to ""standard"" can prolong life expectancy of the lamp further than the predicted and may reach 3000h. not to forget it's low noise and efficient cooling even after hours of continuous use.
Pros: Affordable and handy
Cons: some small pixellations may appers if well focused image
