Review by iloveprojectors

Follow-up review... Had to send one of these to factory. Excellent, quick and quibble-free warranty repair by PLUS was VERY MUCH appreciated.

Any Problems: Had to take this projector out of service because it was too dim. Also, color wheel was noisy. Works fine after repair. The color wheel has been a problem, so downchecked for reliability.

Well, seems plus has a winner here! This 800x 600 resolution projector seems every bit as good as many of the 1024x768 ones out there. Contrast is excellent (hot damn!!! Non crt projctors have come far!) and the scalling of HD is perfect! AND this one deleivers every lumens advertised, it is brighrt!!! Good one Plus!

Any Problems: I guess they did it keep the size down but either HDMI, DVI or even a seperate component would have been nice (you get component HD thru the VGA input)

We've had one of these projectors for 6 months exactly and it has proved more than able to work day in and day out without trouble. I especially appreciate that there is no filter to clean, unlike all the LCD projectors that we use.

Any Problems: The picture seems unusually dim after only 1000 hours on the lamp, but it is still satisfactory for use in our high ambient light situation.
