Great Projector --- 6 Years ago.

M. FONTAINE, Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: I've owned this projector for 5 years, and enjoyed it greatly. I was shocked to see it selling here for $2600, though. A brand new modern projector with vastly improved performance can be had for around $2000. I am about to upgrade mine, and doubt I could sell my VPL-HS20 for more than $500 or so nowadays. (Incidentally, I only paid about $2000 for this unit 5 years ago.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Average to good quality, makes a lot of noise, very limited warranty ( 1 year on the Belgian market in 2004, now legislation is changed and all electronic devices have 2 year warranty), after sales service is very poor. See also Encountered Problems. Problems Sorry but I'm dissapointed. After 3 years and only 500 hours of burning I received a green fingerprintlike spot on the left upper side of the screen and this as big as a football.

  • Summary: Personal Experience After using this projector for over a year I can honestly say that Projector Central over rated it. My biggest complaint is that the unit is not bright enough and it is too expensive to maintain. For what I paid for the projector and screen I would have been more satisfied if I purchased a Plasma HDTV.

It's worth the money, if you get a good piece.

  • Summary: I got my first HS20 in the beginning of January 2004. Out of the box, it didn't start up. The lamp / cover light kept blinking, no matter what I did. Sony support couldn't help me on the phone. I returned it. I decided to give Sony another chance. Got a second one after 2 weeks. This one had a strange problem so that if I flip the picture using the menu (needed for ceiling mounting), there would be light and dark vertical bands all across the screen.

Un trés bon VP LCD MAIS......

Alwoofer, Ciao
9 November 2004
  • Summary: Voila le VPL HS20 de sony, sur le papier c'est un trés bon VP LCD peu-être le meilleur. Alors dabord le look, se rapproche de l'ancien modèle,le poids un peu lourd. Ventilateur silencieux, bref à première vue c'est du bon matos. Connectique trés riche, avec surtout une entrée HDMI le nec plus ultra. Allumage et installation aisé, positionnement souple.
  • Pros: Grande résolution des matrices, contraste élevé
  • Cons: Defaut de convergence
