Summary: Sold as "Refurbished", but it was unlikely that the work was done by Toshiba as the box was damaged and was missing the CD and manual, etc. The manual and documentation provided were from little known company with ties to China. Further research did not show any units being refurbished by Toshiba. Additionally, the unit did "work", but the colors were clearly muted and muddy.
Summary: We purchased this projector...4 years ago I think, and are still on the same bulb! It works amazingly well! We can tell some slight losses in light levels, but it still works great for all our evening and late night viewing. And as long as we close the blinds and seal the cracks, it works great in the afternoon as well!
Summary: I have used this projector for years for making presentations at work. It gets a lot of use and has been great. It has very clear projections. Two other people in my office liked it so much they bought one too.
Summary: Personal Experience Hi Folks, This is my second projector. This one is so bright that you can see a movie in the day time. I bought it for home use. I am very pleased with it so far. Problems I have not yet encountered any problem yet. But if I do then I'll update here.
Summary: It was a little bit bigger than what I expected, but beyond that it is a great product. Great image quality. You can do presentations with 100% ambient light in the room and watch movies with 30-40% ambient light, which for me works perfectly. I can pack it in the same bag as my laptop, so it is very portable, just what I was looking for. There are smaller projectors, but they are no way near in image quality as this one. Great price too!!
Pros: Very bright, great picture my room is 21 feet long and this just barely makes my viewing area possible. This projector will do great in longer viewing areas. Able to hook up to my Computer.
Cons: Unable to turn off completely without unplugging it. It goes into standby mode, which turns off the lamp but still consumes 6 watts of power. Only offers S-video and Composite Video. No Componet video, or Hdmi.
Summary: I bought this to hook up the Xbox 360 and to watch DVDs on. Watching Dvds the size of my huge wall 8ft high and 12ft wide is awesome. Playing the Xbox 360, is awesome as well, with the huge areas when playing cooperative and mulitplayer. However gameplay is slightly fuzzy when your character is shooting long distances, the detail just isn't there as was with the Hi Def t.v.. But still a great buy. Take my advice and buy the ceiling mount for it.
Summary: This projector was needed to project video/slide show images on a stage screen in theater production. It had to front- or rear-project and be easy to use, because kids run tech on most of our shows. It had to be flexible and portable and projected cleanly in a variety of different environments.
