Summary: I bought this projector to replace a very nice rear projection tv that I sold due to it's size and weight. I never believed that a projector could even compare to the picture you get on a LCD or LED tv. After putting up the screen and arranging the projector I put a Blu Ray movie on the projector via a HDMI connection.
Pros: Easy integration with home theater components and video games like WII. Simple controls. Very good color quality. Quiet operation. Price per diagonal inch is better than comparable large-screen TV.
Cons: If you require dealer support, be careful in assuring that it will be provided. Our dealer provided almost no after-sale support, especially noted with bulb replacement. When we changed residences the dealer wouldn't even quote a re-install.
Summary: Personal Experience I have been using this projector for almost 2 years now and it has been an excellent purchase. I've been using it with a 12 feet, High-Power permanent screen. + The HD picture is breath-taking, amazingly beautiful. MUCH better than Sharp and Sanyo projectors I had.
Summary: Personal Experience Paid 799.00 for this unit and I must say as a first projector it's amazing. If you can find one you will really love it. Problems Leans towards green, and you need a room with atleast 13 feet wide in order to get a 100 inch picture. Great quailty picture with a upconverting dvd player. You won't regret your pruchase with this one.
Summary: Personal Experience this is already my 2nd hs20 since i returned the ist one coz after 10 hrs of using, i notice that purple like color appears on screen,so i went back to seller and they replaced it,now im trying to check my second unit(still hs20)if i can encounter any problem but so far its working good/excellent.i have my dvd player with dvi output but dont dont know how to change the resolution ,ive read the manual with limited info.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had the unit for over a year, mainly watch movies, havn'e had the chance to watch HDTV which is supposed to be amazing. The movies I watch are incredible. I have it at 12ft, on projector screen material. Problems MS Mode, I've noticed after a year, it keeps switching to MS mode only if you have it set to 1080i. Most movies won't support 1080 so it switches to MS mode.
Summary: Personal Experience Assembly was easy, remote control is very simple to use. Picture quality is very impressive in terms of clarity of detail and range of colors. I play new xbox games on it and see all the details I could not see on a regular tv. High defition shows/movies are an experience of its own with this one. I never regret my decision to buy it, I get a full return for my investment. Problems Everything works good, no problems.
Summary: Personal Experience I have used the reviews of many projectors from projectorcentral to assist in my final decision. Thanks for all providing reviews. Final choice came down to issues 3 members of my family had with a variety of DLP's causing rainbow effect and feeling of dizziness. I have spent plenty of time with a variety of products and color wheel speeds and although I had ruled out LCD as most retailers pushed DLP over LCD for home theatre use, a Sony shop provided...
