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'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 ($942) as well.
Summary: Personal Experience Hi, I've had the projector for a year and a half now and have something like 800 hours on it. I have never experienced trouble with it yet except a fan not starting a few months ago (but turning off and on again did the trick).
Summary: Personal Experience I have used this pj for 10 moths now (550 hrs). I live in the Netherlands and paid EUR 4000,- for it. Picture is very good, blacks good be better. BUT: I have also experienced the lamp problem (in fact it is in repair right now!) First problems after aprox. 75 hrs.
Summary: Personal Experience Image quality very good,very nice projector but @ this time I must take a stand and say it is not reliable. Problems Lamp want come on after 800hrs,having to send back to Sony for repair,I'm hoping to get back from Sony ASAP.
Summary: Personal Experience I've got to give Sony's service a kudos. After over 1 year of use and over 1500 hrs on the lamp, one of the fans suddenly died making the projector unusable. I put in a request for service at Sony's online site and sent the projector down to Texas to be serviced.
Summary: Personal Experience I purchased this projector in Sept '03 based on its awesome picture and value pricing. To me, it looked as good as or better than LCD/DLP projectors twice (or more) its price.
Summary: Personal Experience i love watching dvd with this maschine. the wxga resolution gives the image the extra sharpness you need in my home cynema system. visitors prefer my image over a 8500$ plasma screen Problems sometmes 1 ventilator wont start but when you touch it it starts.
Summary: Personal Experience Hard to beat for the price but with 60-some hours on the lamp, I've had it stumble a few times on power up. The video quality is hard to beat for $2300 (the street price I paid).
