Review by vek

Got this about three years ago, 5€ total price because it was broken. I fixed it myself and been watching many movies since then, about 500 hours total. And it is still going strong, only needs cleaning of panels because of dust. This might help to reset lamp counter: 1. Press the Reset button on the projector for three seconds or press the Timer button on the remote control for three seconds to display the total lamp time. 2. Press the Reset button while displaying the lamp time to display the reset window. 3. Use the Menu button on the projector or the Stick Switch on the remote control to select the 0 in the reset window. (from service manual I found from 3M web site)

Any Problems: Little bit noisy and some dust collectors installed inside over panels.

Got this one couple months ago. Paid $500 for it (it came with an extra bulb). Use it just for fun. Can't use it in bright daylight but everybody knows that with a projector that money. Works perfect and with the curtains closed it has a sharp and steady picture. Better then expected.

Any Problems: Haven't got the manual so also failed to reset the lightbulb's counter.

Any Problems: Can't find were to reset the clock for the lamp.
