Review by rhardy9177

I bought this projector for 252 plus shipping. This projector is a great buy at that price! Projects a very good image in XGA mode running through my adapter box.Even though the contrast ratio is very low I have not encountered any significant white/black image problems. When viewing DVD's the color are good but not exact. I will need to find the remote to my box to adjust the color. Overall I am very pleased with my buy.

Any Problems: I do get a slight double image that is barely noticeable most of the time. The better the input to the projecter the less noticable the double imaging becomes.

Overall, a great projector. Fairly easy to set up, and handles a good range of inputs. Light output is low, but hey, if you're like me you're getting this used, and it's a good deal for the money. I've used this for TV and DVD's, and it's functioned well.

Any Problems: Mine has a persistent double-image problem that gets worse over time. I've taken it to a projector place to get it repaired, and that improves the situation, but it is always a temporary fix. A few months later, the double image is noticeable again, and it just keeps getting worse. This projector has a lot of adjustments you can make, but apparently only a $250 repair bill will fix the double-image problem. Overall, I've been happy with my purchase, but I will avoid Proxima in the future just because of this.

I've checked out a lot of projectors. Some of the best ones I have seen are made by Proxima. I also like a lot of NEC projectors. By far, the construction of this projector stands out. It is a very well put together machine. I bought it on ebay for $650 and have used it now for a little over a year and a half. When I first got it, it needed a bit of a cleaning and it needed a new lamp. After I did these things, this turned out to be a great investment! I am currently using a self-made screen out of high quality material (similar to the fiberglass backed type high contrast grey screens you see out there). It's a 120"x90" screen giving me a 150" diagonal image. I have the unit mounted on the ceiling a little over 22' back. For being LCD and having pretty low contrast and brightness, it does very well in this room when it's dark enough. I've been very pleased with it. No rainbow effects, no dead pixels, no shakey images, no real complaints other than it's old and doesn't have HDTV compatibility.

Any Problems: Had problems with it overheating when I had it on a table up against a wall (no wonder!). Once I mounted it on the ceiling, the problem went away because I was sure to give it the proper clearance! Not quite as bright as I would like it, but not too bad for a simple home theater.
