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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Grande résolution des matrices, contraste élevé
