Review by Ghost6007

Great projector, bought it off of eBay used and put in a new lamp for a makeshift home theater in the bedroom, its an amazing experience with the low noise and easy to setup system. It never failed to impress friends and family who keep bragging about their huge LCD and Plasma TVs

Any Problems: Like all the other reviewers, the color wheel blew itself up, an expensive repair proposition considering the age of the unit; not reliable. I will probably sell this off and go for another brand.

Review by Lenny

Great projector. Easy to calibrate, great picture, easy to maintain. Three years warranty, rare at that time. On the connection side it is very well equipped with its 5x BNC and DVI inputs. The only issue is with the colour wheel: it has failed twice.

Any Problems: Colour wheel failed twice. The first at 400hours. The second time at 550 hours. The latter the pieces have been scattered all around the machine.

Review by Big Stogie

This projector has an excellent picture and was fairly easy to set up. The problem is the first bulb blew at 300 hours and the color wheel disintegrated at 600 hours. Mitsubishi does not offer loaners on home theatre projectors.

Any Problems: color wheel and bulb failure.

Congratulation Mitsubishi Electric Japan! HC2000 is perfect. Vivid colours, high contrast ratio 3600:1, incredible low fan noise level (23dB), versatile input terminals (DVI, Component etc.), HDTV resolution, motorized zoom and focus, lens shift. I'm the most satisfied people now!

Any Problems: Maybe the factory should look for some italian designer :) you know the cabinet is very simple, this unin won't be the jewell of the room :)

las imagenes proyectadas sobre una superficie ligeramente pintada de gris son sencillamente impresionantes,el nivel de contraste es muy elevado y la imagen es muy brillante,mas que sus 700 lumenes anuncian. Los colores son solidos y llenos de vida,los terciopelos del Pacto de los Lobos son impresionates,la profundidad de imagen es increible y la colorimetria despues de ajustar los 3 colores es casi perfecta. El ruido que hace es simplemente inaudible a 2 metros escasos,el mando a distacia es funcional,la construccion es buena aunque utilizan plasticos y la caja se calienta bastante. El modo eco es mas que suficiente para aracar una pantalla de 2 metros,si queremos mas anchura podremos utilizar el modo normal sin apenas incrementar apenas el ruido del ventilador. Excelente maquina por un precio que hace 3 meses era practicamente un sueño

Any Problems: el software de gestion podria ser mas potente,posterizacion y elgun que otro efecto arco iris,problemas comunes de la mayoria de maquinas actuales DLP

The HC2000 has an outstanding picture...nice black levels, great colors, sharp image and it's really quiet (almost inaudible in "hush" mode) making it perfect for a theater-like setting. I love the look of the box, but hate the side-mounted power cable. Mitsubishi should have put it on the back. If that doesn't matter to you, this projector is as good as anything else currently on the market.
