Review by Rod

I've had this projector for over 2 years now and I use it everyday to play xbox at 1080i, to watch TV and all during the bright daytime (I have ton's of windows). I LOVE using a projector, it's great to play games on a HUGE screen. I would only suggest this projector if you can control the amount of light in the room. I have a all glass room and it's not quite bright enough. I would definitely recommend this projector in comparison to most of the ones you can get at best buy or futureshop. The resolutions just aren't as high as you can get with this one.

Any Problems: As I said, the brightness during the daytime is the only 'problem' but that's what you expect when you purchase a projector. The bulb life has been around 2200 hours at brightness at its max for 50% of it's life (bright room).

The color wheel of 4 segments is something realy bad. Doesn't create a gradient to white but a jump from a 65% of intensity to a 100 % in the next pixel. Real about the DLP and the problem with the ones that include the white in it before by this projector. It is not for Home Theatre that is for sure.

Had a 9 yr old Sharp LCD. Looked at PB6200,7200, and bought PB7220. I set it up at -37 brightness setting (about 25% of full scale) with a 120" picture, and it was very adequate for home theater even in daylight at this setting. After rebate was $1625 which was the best part. I feel the PB6200 would also have been very adequate based on what I have seen. I expect 3000 hours bulb life since I have the brightness turned down. My brotherinlaw just got an NEC HT110 and I feel mine is very comparable performer.

Any Problems: The manual could have been more informative. It did not say how to focus the image, just how to zoom it, etc.

I Wanted to buy the PB 6100 (800x600) but also wanted to use it for computer connection to play games. The 1024x768 gives a much better defenition for this. We also projected it onto a mat glass and the quality was realy good. I also got it for a very good price $2,050.
