Summary: I replaced my older projector with a ViewSonic PJ552 and was amazed with the vivid color and clarity. Don't be fooled by claims of some off brands, stick with a known brand, the little extra money is well spent.
Summary: Personal Experience Have to agree with J Spig. For the money ($899 Cdn) this projector is a fantastic deal. Upgrading from a BenQ 6100 (800 x 600, DLP, 1500 lumens), and there is no comparison. Clarity, brightness, colours, all light years ahead of the old BenQ. Only worse things are screen door effect (a matter of taste, but I find it ok), and blacks are not as good as DLP. No real complaints though, and for the price, wow!
Summary: Personal Experience Update to my earlier review. OK, I've had the projector another week and did some more testing. First let me tell you that I'm getting it $400 cheaper, because the price just dropped from $1299 to $899 CAD. I thought it was a steal at the original price, but at $899!?!?! Get one now! (LOL) Since the last review I have tried Star Wars Episode III and the vertical banding persisted no matter how many adjustments I made.
Summary: Personal Experience Ok, I've updated to this projector after having an Infocus X-1 for the past three years. I never write reviews, but after having trouble trying to find good ones about this projector, I decided to hopefully help some other person out. I've only had the projector for a week but I will do a follow-up if anything in this review changes. I am currently projecting a 103" (diagonal) image with an approximate 11' -12' throw.
Summary: Personal Experience Have been using the projector for a few weeks. Very impressed with the quality. The picture is as good as that of NEC MT1060 projector that I have at work, for a fraction of price. I gully agree with the other review that for the same amount of money a DLP projector would have lesser quality. BenQ PB6240 and Acer PD525 have a strong rainbow effect.
Summary: Personal Experience This is my initial review of this projector... I've had it for a few days now, but it is not in its permanent (home cinema) setup yet. I chose LCD because the DLP projectors for the same price as this were crap (i.e. PB6200 by BenQ), and because I am one of those people bothered by the DLP rainbow effect! This thing has not one but two VGA inputs, with a VGA output, which sealed the deal for me, since I can hook two computers up and be happy.
