This line of projectors is defective, and will break down with time.

  • Summary: The projector does in fact have many nice qualities, but if you see it up for sale you should definitely pass on it, as it has a major defect that affects all of this line of Sony projectors, as well as many other older LCD projectors.

VPL-HS51 Delivers

  • Summary: I've owned this unit for years, just came back to order a replacement bulb to have on hand because its about that time - when it goes out, it goes out - boom. I use the unit with DirecTV and HDMI hookups, and we use it on a 100" screen with surround, and it has thus far been a very enjoyable...

  • Summary: Personal Experience This was a very good projector. My last projector was struck by lightening so the company I purchased it from worked with my insurance company and I was upgraded to this model. After three years and 3 bulbs, I experienced the blue hue around the bottom portion of the screen.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I would buy another Sony product EVER! I see other people have had poor experiences with this Sony model. I to have had the "blue screen of death and just like the first reviewer said Sony wanted over $2000.00 to fix it.

Sony VPL-HS51 LCD Projector

  • Summary: I bought this "light" projector for a great price. The picture is simply amazing, although I did have to alter the room in which it is in order to avoid white out image from light (as is the case in most projectors).

  • Summary: Personal Experience This projector worked great for the first 3 1/2 years of use. It has now developed the common "blue smear" problem, meaning the image now has a blue wash on about half of it due to the blue-panel burning up (not a very technical description, I know).

Excellent projector for the money

  • Summary: The reviewers who gave this projector one star clearly had support issues but from a technical perspective this is an excellent buy for the money. I have owned mine for over 2 years and changed the filter only once. The bulb is still going strong (1000+ hours).
