Review by vidiot1963

Warning! Stay away! Makes a good paperweight.

Any Problems: Never twice the same problem. Used until extended warranty was up. Could never rely on it to work, even when tested night before. I hate to think of the money we spent on this. I have refused to buy an Infocus since then.

Extremely Happy, to fix the problem with the red and green tinge you need to buy a new monitor cable, works well with mac and pc

Any Problems: Needs a high quality cable, easy to fix

Review by Phill

This was my first Projector. I bought it for ~340€. The Lamp Timer says it was only used for 165 hours (now 195 *g*, 4 days in use!). It came from a big Water Company and was only used for Presentations. My fortune! I plugged it in and... it made a very bright fine Picture. No Pixelerrors etc. Its a little noisy but if you turn on the Films Volume its okay. If you get the chance to get one for less money... take it!

Any Problems: I have noticed that there are some Problems with the Color. I dont know how it is called, maybe "colorshift"?.. I´ll try to explain it. Over and under every white picture/letter there is one green and one red line... ~1 dot large. Old CRT Monitors have had an Option to adjust that shift of Colors.. this Lcd as far as i know not! By watching Tv or DvD its not a problem.. but it makes the picture a little bit blurred. If anyone has got an Idea how to fix the Problem.. please fell free to tell me: judgejules@gmx.de

Lovely projector. Image very good, better than my older 3M and also alot smaller! Features are good, remote a little fiddly, but very handy. Manual focus and zoom lets you adjust perfectly! Good projector, get one today!

Any Problems: --

Purchased second hand. Only 337 hours lamp use, excellent projector. Bright and good colors, may be slightly slow when playing videos etc, otherwise very good!

Any Problems: None yet! Fingers Crossed!

Review by Albert Singh

I bought it new and it was good then. Still use it (after 4 years), but problems have began to surface. Overall, It has been an expensive investment.

Any Problems: Lamp went after about 1500 hours, and then the power supply developed problems. The lamp is expensive, and I'd have thrown it away if I didn't have the knowledge to repair the power supply myself.

Review by Fred

This unit has been a very expensive paper weight. Stay away! We would test it in the evening and it would be fine. In the morning, it burned us time and again!

Any Problems: You name it. It had a new problem every time.

Review by boysncity

I USED MY FOR 2 YEARS AND ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS STARTED TO SURFACE. PICTURE SHIFTED, RCA AND S VIDEO COULD NOT WORK. THE QUALITY IS OK BUT JUST A PAIN IN THE ... IF YOU CAN AFFORD, GET THE LP735 WHICH IS AN XGA MODEL. BEAUTIFUL PICTURE AND MORE RELIABLE THAN LP720.

Any Problems: I DON'T HAVE THE REMOTE AND CHANGING THE SETTING ON THE PROJECTOR ITSELF CAN BE DIFFICULT.

Review by KCanihan

very expensive item with very bad experience. average image. optical engine failed at 130 hours right after warranty expired. got to pay thousands to get it fixed. now in my closet. any taker for spare parts? got an epson now with 5 years warranty!

Any Problems: avoid it. this machine at be found at very low prices but avoid it.

Review by Bobby T

Nice projector! Got it used from HomeCinema in town. Good picture quality for the money. ( I paid $950) We have used it for nearly 1200 hours now with no problems. I have a computer connected for DivX and Sony DVD for regular movies.

Any Problems: No problems whatsoever... Bad remote maybe.

Review by projektor_profi

a very bad projector. low contrast, no brightness, a very slow video electronic. very expensive. after 1000-1500 hours, the picture gets double-pictures and you must change the complete optical engine, which ist very expensice!!!

Any Problems: many problem
