Review by Vegasbill

This projector has worked very well for about 1.5 years. I use it to project digital images, slide shows, and DVD movies at home. Only big gripe is that it exagerates yellow tones. I wish projectors had the ability to adjust color balance. I have gotton used to the yellow cast. Whne doing digital slide shows I compenssate by reducing the yellow saturation of each digital slide containing lots of yellow flowers or other objects. .

Any Problems: See above.

Very bright and clear. A good all-rounder for both home theater and presentation. Easy to to set up, almost everything is powered ie zoom, focus, lens cap, elevation stand...A bit pricey for its class, fan noise is acceptable in low power mode but still a bit high on full power.

Any Problems: None so far.

Review by Noki

Everything about this is great. I bought it with high hopes, and I was not disapointed. Looks great, easy to use, bright enough to see clearly with all my lights on, biggest problem is price, but I don't regret paying as much as I have for this puppy.

Any Problems: None really, aside from finding a ceiling mount for it. 3-4 weeks on delivery for it, so I'll have to wait.

Excellent projector - in a darkened meeting room, it is every bit as good as it CX big brother. Used mainly for PC presentations, but we have run video through it. Only comment I would make would be that if it was being used for Home Theatre, it is quite a lot noisier than some other projectors out there, like my own Hitachi that was half the price. However, it is so simple to use even Exec's seem to cope!

Any Problems: None whatsoever.
