Mitsubishi HC3800 User Reviews
User ReviewsWrite a Review
I own the infocus sp4800 (x2) and it is a great projector, the best of 4:3 in proportion to his price...very nice and reliable (i have the same lamp from 2003!!! yes it lost some of his brightness, but with more 6000 hours of use he is the best for reliability, a tank! i own a nec ht1100, very good projector 4:3,a little better than the infocus for his definition of 1024x768 instead of 800x600 and the color wheel of 5x instead of 2x. Now with this Mitsubishi hc 3800 the videogames looks perfect thanks to his high def of 1920x1080p native! 1300 lumens and very good levels of black, the words written on the screen are perfect and the colors are wonderful, very vivid, blu ray looks great. It is as a big computer monitor of 100 inches 16:9 (the size of my screen) with the difference that it weights only 3,5 kg (7 pounds, as the movie :)) and it doesnt costs 10.000 $ but only 1000$. for this low price, you will have a big, stunning image in your room.
Any Problems: None...but now to think of it, a problem there is: i spent at least 6 hours every day in front of it, playing my favourite games ps3-xbox360 and watching my favourite dvd, blu-ray in full hd :)
I think the picture is excellent. Not sure if it'd D65 quality, I have no way of testing, but I did only minor tweaking and am more than impressed. Projector occassionally deals with loss of HDMI signal from player when it's booting up, but runs fine once movie starts. For the money you can't find a better projector!
Any Problems: Unfortunately this is my 2nd projector. the first one I bought had problems with producing random "checkerboard lock up" screens. 2nd one is working fine so far, but deals with light leakage out from the front focal ring. I may have home remedy, but it's still annoying. And be aware this projector kicks plenty of light off it's left side (nearest) to the lens. But for a DLP projector it's really quiet. Only slight hearing of the color wheel.
I upgraded from an old Epson s1+ projector , and there really is no comparison. This HC3800 is sharper, quieter, cooler, and way more flexible in placement. I got it for about 1200, which is a great price (with mail in rebate for a spare bulb). I like it that it is very quiet and the picture is amazing. I debated buying a used projector on ebay to get by for a while, but am happy I spent a little more to get this one.
