Great picture quality for an entry level projector. Better than alot of 1500 lumen projectors i trialed.

Any Problems: The filter on the front of the projectoe needs to be cleaned regularly but you cant get to it without opening up the unit. If you dont clean this filter, the machine overheatd and damages the globe.

I have it for 1 year. Image good. A bit low on contrast , but you will did not notice it after a while. Very bright, I can use it in day time in my living room with curtain closed. Feature is ok. It's very light, can bring it to anywhere around the room and easy set up. A value for money projector. It's even cheaper than some CRT tivi on the market. Screen door effect is not a problem for me. I nearly 4m away from the screen.

Any Problems: No horizontal len shift, a bit tricky to set up in living room. A bit noisy if temperture in the room high.

An excellent entry level projector. Image is bright and clear. Easy to use, menu has lots of useful features. Replacement lamps are cheap and easy to buy.

Very good projector for the budget buyer. Image quality is great and features are excellent.A definate buy for the entry level user.

Any Problems: The only problem i found was that the unit has a kingston lock facility , but cannot be used in conjuction with an S Video cable.

En relación a su tamaño es un equipo muy silencioso, no he tenido porblemas con recalentamiento. Lo seleccioné con la menor relación (peso*precio)/lumens, el M1 tiene una relación de 5. Para el viejo SONY VPL-500 la relacion es 115.

Earlier i was using hitachi projector and it performed really well. This projector after using for 3 to 4 hours gets too hot and colours get distorted. The after sales services are very poor.

I Have clocked up 13 Hours on this projector, I use it for Home Theatre, It is 10 x nicer than my old Sony 600Lumen projector howver that was made in 1999 and the screen door effect is not neally as bad as the old one. I run it on low lamp mode to converve the bulb, apparently this can extend it to 3000hrs life.
