Review by Mike Jameson

My company owns and uses many different projectors and I come back to use this one every time. I use it for both home theater and work. I cannot understand one of the reviews on here that states that colour saturation / brightness etc is off. All the other reviews say excellent, that is my experience too. It is bright, sharp with vibrant colors. I suppose if you are using this in a closet sized room, you would hear the fan noise, but not in a normal 10x12 bedroom. It does put out some heat, but so do all projectors - it is a byproduct of that nice bright picture! If anyone is looking for a good all rounder, buy one. It is a perfect combination of contrast ratio, brightness etc to look right first time, every time. I bought a second unit off ebay for pretty cheap, but when it arrived it had had a very bad life, I am looking for another one that I can buy locally so I get to have one of these workhorses for many years to come!

Any Problems: No problems, I just wish it had component inputs as standard without having to buy the little VGA adapter thingy.

Infocus in an excellent company for projectors. This is just another work of art. however, the color saturation is off. at only 400:1 contrast ratio is could be better. the lamp isn't the brightest but then again all projectors produce awesome pictures with the lights off. it is sturdily built with high craftsmanship. the foot is somewhat bothersome. for its price it is not worth it with all of the sub $1000 projectors coming out now adays. with the provided computer to vga cable pictureis flawless with minimal pixalation

Any Problems: it tends to heat up a lot more than expected and is a bit noisey. also it would be nice to have keystone correctional or a wide angle lense of something.

Fantastic picture, very bright with lights on, excellent for home theater or business presentations. I use it for home theater and I'm the envy of all my friends. Highly recommended!

Any Problems: None

The picture quality is superb! It is a bit noisy, but I'm sure that will be overcome with a new surround sound system. The picture is vibrant, and colorful, coming straight from my laptop. It does a decent job as converting composite and s-video signals, but I'm sure adding a DVDO or AVT video scaler will make it even more beautiful. This is a good pick!

Any Problems: A bit noisy, and no component inputs. I also wish the cables weren't so darned expensive, so I could upgrade the firmware.

The projector is a workhorse! I've been using mine for home theater for over 3 years now and have never had a problem. The 900 lumens offer excellent brightness even with the lights on and the picture quality beats any big screen TV I've seen.

Any Problems: None
