Summary: Personal Experience Ecellent Picture. I'm using it with my Sony DSS HD100 and a Philips Progressive scan DVD. Hi- Def. On My DSS Looks awsome! With my DVD it looks Great. Problems No Problema!
Summary: Personal Experience Good projector, I have had good images from my cable HDTV channels, particularly Detroit PBS HDTV station. The unit is noiser thten I had expected, but you get used to it. Problems I have started getting green smudges on the screen. The smudges remain static and are not dependent on the video source. I phoned Sony and after speaking with about 10 persons finally spoke with a technician, who told me that they have not seen this problem before.
Summary: Personal Experience A nice unit. Real wide panels, no waste when viewing wide video material. Generally good colors, but red seen better on other projectors in similar price range. Unfortunately the computer input isn't calibrated for optimum color reproduction rather maximum light output and that really sucks when what I wanted was to use my PC as the center AV device. Bollocks. Problems No problems so far, just passed 700hrs on my first bulb.
Summary: Personal Experience There are many negative comments about this projector, mainly on poor black and contrast. But before you trade it in I suggest you try feed it with RGBHV (5 RCA cables). It will give you a picture you can never get from other kinds of input. The skin tone suddenly looks right, black becomes deeper and the whole picture looks 3D without any treaking filter or whatsoever. You can forget about composite, s-video or even component input.
Summary: Personal Experience Low noise, good onboard scalar, okay remote, no rainbows due to the use of LCD panel, decent black levels, okay contrast level for film use and excelent for computer use. Only real downside; in PC mode, the unit always asume a 4:3 resolution on the input signal if the refresh rate is above 56Hz thus getting a wide screen picture is not possible and again in turn makes NTSC-movies less than enjoyable to whach (due to the refreshrate isn't a multiplum...
Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector. My only complaint is the contrast ratio could be better, but I am projecting on a while painted wall at 150" and would rather stay home than go to a theatre now. Ease of use, I have had this for one year and not a single problem with it, the bulb still runs at 1500 hours, I hear it should for 3000 with the cinema black setting on. Vivid life-like picture quality, excellent , the best purchase I have ever made. Thanks Sony.
