Summary: Personal Experience Oct. 2009 This is a terrific projector. I bought mine in 2004, and it has been flawless. I've only changed the bulb once, though I do keep the unit in a well ventilated area and dust it out with canned air.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had the projector 2 years, with no trouble until 2 weeks ago. At that time, it started to show daigonal yellow lines in some parts of the image. I sent the projector to Sony for service. They indicate that 'authorized' repair stations are not suggested for this unit.
Summary: Personal Experience I just wanted to follow up on an old review I did of this projector. I still feel the same way about the projector, but my opinion has changed about Sony's service. I think they have done a complete 180, and offer far better service than they used to.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had the HS10 now for 22 months. An amazing product bought at US$2750. Like high-end HIFI audio system to get the best out of the projector good associated gears and environment are important.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought this projector ages ago for Â£2000 (that's $3765). I have to say it's the best thing I have EVER bought. I did buy an electric 95" screen for Â£500 ($942) as well.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had the HS10 now for 12 months and I have had nothing but trouble. The lamp does'nt start intermitently. The unit has been repaired three times now. Obviously everyone else has had this problem. Are all projectors crap?
Summary: Personal Experience I've had this projector for a little over a year now, and am just now starting to run into the problems many, many others have had. Problems My bulb is only about 1/2 as bright as when it was new, with only 250 hours on it. It's so dim I have to replace it already.
Summary: Personal Experience Hi, I've had the projector for a year and a half now and have something like 800 hours on it. I have never experienced trouble with it yet except a fan not starting a few months ago (but turning off and on again did the trick).
Summary: Personal Experience I have used this pj for 10 moths now (550 hrs). I live in the Netherlands and paid EUR 4000,- for it. Picture is very good, blacks good be better. BUT: I have also experienced the lamp problem (in fact it is in repair right now!) First problems after aprox. 75 hrs.
Summary: Personal Experience Image quality very good,very nice projector but @ this time I must take a stand and say it is not reliable. Problems Lamp want come on after 800hrs,having to send back to Sony for repair,I'm hoping to get back from Sony ASAP.
