Review by eyedktr

I've had this projector for 7 years and have never had any problems. I used it originally for business presentations, but now have it in our home for occasional movies and games. This machine is excellent and full of features. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

Any Problems: no problems

Review by Carlton

What a work horse, I mean I've had this projetor about five years now, and never had any problems whatsoever. I stole it for $400 bucks, never put any lamps in it. Used it to watch tons of movies. Use it to play playstation. Left it on for days at a time and it is still running strong. I have it back far enough to where its about a 10 foot corner to corner picture. Try to beat that with your plasma. I have even hung like a white bed sheet up outside and have like a huge gignormace screen to watch the big games with my friends. I also have a benq pb5100 with a little better picture that I have spent thousands on bulbs with. I think when this one goes bad I'll just get me another Proxima DP5900.

Any Problems: Little screen door affect up close barely noticable. Room does have to be dark only 700 lumens, perfect for basement. Fan noise, just turn up the volume

Review by Jason

I got this free as my dad's company was phasing out there old projectors. I hook this up to use as a TV and Home Movie experience. Tv has a good image although its no HD or even EDTV but it has a nice pig picture. When hooked up to a DVD the image is great just like the movie theaters. I have no problems with this projector or complaints except for maybe the fan noise and the size but other than that it works very smoothly.

Any Problems: No problems at all. This Projector was used in a board room which probably has a boat load of hours on it, but it fired right up and the quality is still great.

Review by Doug

I bought this projector a year or two ago for about $850. It has been a great investment. I watch movies and play games on it. All of my friends and family marvel at it when I bring it over for special occasions like the Super Bowl, etc. I made a custom ceiling mount for it, and the function that inverts the image works great. Overall, a great projector!

Any Problems: If the bottom is blocked, the projector will shut off from overheating. I just let it cool down for about 10-15 minutes and then make sure that the bottom has plenty of access for breathing before I turn it back on.
