Summary: Personal Experience I got this from my dad in 2007. He bought it in 2003. It is on its second bulb and still works great. I project onto a 106. in x 44 in. screen and have no problem filling it with bright, clear color. I only wish it was higher resolution. I guess thats why thy stopped making it.
Summary: Personal Experience Excellent usage, just wish it had the capability of rotating the picture 180 degrees for ceiling mount. I would recommend this unit to anyone that is looking for a good value.
Summary: Personal Experience Sono soddistatto della qualitÃ di immagine del vpl hs1, i colori, il contrasto e la geometria sono su ottimi livelli Problems La prima lampada ha smeso di funzionare dopo circa 600 ore !
Summary: Personal Experience Sono estremamente soddisfatto del videopriettore. Ho anche visto funzionare un DLP ma francamente preferisco il mio bellissimo VPL-HS1! Spero di migliorarne le giÃ piÃ¹ che buone performance acquistando uno scaler video per sfruttarne l'ingresso HDTV Component a 720p! Problems Forse solo il fatto che il cavo SIC-HS30 Ã¨ troppo costoso.
Summary: Personal Experience Over 400hrs use since buying 18+ months ago. Image still as good as new on my 8ft square screen. I use it all the time for DVDs, TV movies, Camcorder/VCR playback, PC - Internet/Games and Playstation. Looks stylish and is nice and quiet. Recently using memory stick slot with pictures from Sony Cybershot. Faultless.
Summary: Personal Experience I watched video, played game and business presentation with this unit. I really love this unit except that little costy. But I like it very much. Especially side view function is very handy and confortable to use. No need to hang. I think this unit is great for all use. One thing I'm concerned is the warm air venting.
Summary: Personal Experience Adequate performance, low audible noise (~29-30dBA), "SIDE SHOT"-mode, nice design and a bundled 60" screen is all it took. Problems The first projector I received had no less than six (6!) dead pixels! The projector I got as a replacement, works fine.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought this unit 3 weeks ago. Colour, sharpness, and contrast are very good to me. Disney as well as movies are very clean on a 2m wide screen. Recommend to use the 3rd settings on the remote (image looks like cinema). very low noise also.
