Review by Claudio

I built a 25sqmeter Home Theater with a 120in fixed screen 1.1 gain. I have the projector since Oct 2010 with no issues neither any maintenance needed so far. The projector is ceiling mounted and I use a Sony Blue Ray disc player and a HD satellite box. I am very happy indeed with the image quality of the projector. I bought it directly from Dell and this was a plus as I live in Brazil, we do not have other projector brands selling HD projectors.

It's a very robust and high reliability projector. I have used it for 3 years now as my home-movie theatre and it does the job very well.

Any Problems: 3D is indeed a pain - and Dell are totally in the dark as to how this can be setup. I have seen it work on a similar projector but have not succeded yet my self in getting 3D movie / images projected. I'm using the NVIDIA 3D Vision Glasses Kit with a NVIDIA 760 GT 2Gb gfx-card. I don't see 120hz as an option for any screen resolutions - not for 720p either. I only have 59 and 60hz. Please share how exactly to set 3D up using this projector. Thanks!

This does a great job with 3D, after figuring out how to set it up. I think the color is very good and image quality is great. I have a Sharp X-F212 and it is rated at 2100 lums. The 1601HD is not too much brighter (3500 lums). Dell Support was great (with one caveat 3D setup). Had a spot on the first one, and Dell was very quick to replace it.

Any Problems: Setting up 3D was a pain. Dell support is no help. They keep telling me it was my graphics card. I bought a new one and found out it was not. To get it for 3d to work you will need to will need to go into the screen resolution (Windows 7, right click on desktop) and click on advanced option. Then click on list modes. The only option I had for 120HZ was at 720p, so 1280 X 800 does not work with 3D. My first card had the same option... thanks Dell $75 for nothing.
