Summary: Personal Experience The projector has been in the ceiling for 4 months. Bulb and ballast blew at under 300 hours first time, continued lamp change alarms at under 10 hours and occasionally the cooling fan runs very noisy.
Summary: Personal Experience Great projector, but the bulb blew at 265 hours. At $400 per bulb, we're talking nearly $2 per hour. That is ridiculous. And there is NO RECOURSE. Pretty convenient of InFocus, assigning an arbitrary number of hours to the expected life--overstated by a factor of nearly TEN!
Summary: Personal Experience Excellent image quality right out of box I have it at 14.5 feet projecting on appox 133' screen. Wish it had power zoom & focus. Problems DVI will not work. Had Toshiba upgrade the software version to 3.2 Now the bootup screen shows InFocus logo.
Summary: Personal Experience My only design beefs are that the image could be a little brighter and that the projector could be a little quieter. The lamp was an utter disappointment--after only 500 hours and 6 months, the bulb blew during a movie with a little "POP" sound.
Summary: Personal Experience Abosolutely blown away... having seen cheap DLPs and not been impressed I was going to buy a top range LCD. But then the offer of a Tosh came my way and Im glad I bought it.
Summary: Personal Experience I purchased the Toshiba MT8U after reading many, many reviews and visiting a few stores. My system was installed by a local dealer who sold me the system for a total of $4500 (much less than the MSRP).
Summary: Personal Experience After owning a Sony 7" CRT Front Projection system with line doubler for 5 years, I had my doubts about the Toshiba- or any non-CRT system. I was wrong. It was like lifting a veil-- absolutely sharp and stunning image with far more dynamics than the Sony.
