Review by GRumpka

I paid $45.00 each for nine of these units! Each with mid hours (400-500 range). For holiday/seasonal use they were perfect. If they broke or got ripped off, I wouldn't care. If you find these used for cheap, don't hesitate to buy one! I'd say anything at or under $75.00 would be reasonable. They aren't very bright, so low light level use only (like outdoors at night)>

Any Problems: Not a problem, but no DVI, HDMI. These are old school units. VGA is all you need though.

Review by Charles

I got this baby used for $700 -and at that price I am completely and utterly blown away by every aspect of this portable masterpiece. I went into this venture because I needed a home theater projector and had very little money to do so. I wanted DLP at XGA resolution all under a thousand dollars and I'd be happy. Low and behold this unit delivers a crisp HD picture, with deep blacks, sharp details and bright colors. Pros: -Portable -Sharp XGA resolution -Bright, vivid colors -Deep DLP blacks -Vga Input for HDTV, DVD, and Computer -Pixels are extremely close together, more so than any projector I have seen thusfar(little or no screendoor effect) -Supports front(floor), front(ceiling), rear(floor), and rear(ceiling) projection.

Any Problems: Cons: -DLP rainbow effect noticable at first -Slightly loud fan -Lack of component video inputs. I made sure to buy HDTV and DVD units with VGA outputs to get around the no component inputs problem, and as for the rainbow effect I don't even notice it anymore, even if I look for it. The projector could be placed in a separate projection booth --or-- pointed at a mirror amidst soundproofing material -away from the screen to combat the loud fan.

This has been a wonderful unit for my home theater application. The fan is not as noticable as the other review mentioned. Not one problem to say! For the money, this will make a great addition to any home theater.
