Review by Dave

I took a punt on one of these on eBay with no lamp info. I won the auction for £15! I am so pleased with this projector. Crucially out has a dvi-d (hdcp compliant) input which takes hdmi via a cheap coverter. 720p from my virgin tv box looks great on HD tv channels and Netflix. I don't know when the builb will go as I suspect the lamp counter was reset. But what a bargain.

Any Problems: There is a slight blue tinge in the bottom left corner but you hardly notice it. Can a bit noisy even in 'whisper' mode. Aspect ratio is 4:3 and could do with a bit more contrast but you can not complain if you get this at a bargain price.

Ignore the last opinion, I have been using this projector for dvd's and xbox360 and the picture quality is amazing, my friends jaws droped when they saw this in action. It has all the connections you could possibly need on the back is nice and quiet in whisper mode and can be used in broad daylight, It is just like being at the cinema and 15ft wide xbox360 is just unbelievable. Very easy to use with a vast amount of options from the menus. Recommended to anyone

Any Problems: None whatsoever.

Review by drew

I had a quick look at this unit. I was surprised at how bad the video picture was. The LCDs seemed slow, and in moving highlights, I saw a lot of black that shouldn't have been there. Edge outlines were poor. also, there's no volume control on the projector, just the remote. I didn't check the computer inputs.

Any Problems: I had to put something in the rating for "realibility" and "value". I don't know the price, and I only looked at it for 20 minutes, so I can't comment on these.
