First let me point out that I do repair all types of video equipment, down to the component level if necessary - I am very familiar with all types of projectors from the $500 to $45,000 range. I purchased this projector to put in my 10 year old son's room. Overall I'm fairly satisfied with it. Image quality is average for a three chip LCD projector and it is very bright, even in a room with two windows w/o the shades drawn. Its menus are easy to navigate through and very easy to understand. It comes with a two (2) year (parts and labor) warranty and 90 warranty on the lamp. It has two 15 pin VGA style connectors for video input, one for the computer, the other for y,pb,pr component input and composite. There is a switch that allows you to have two inputs, or pass through the VGA signal to another device. Will work in all 4 orientations (front projection, front projection (inverted), rear projection and rear projection (inverted). Price paid as of July 2007 ($649.95)
Any Problems: Though this is the only one I purchased, it doesn't seem to remember keystone settings. At times when using with a computer at 1024x768 (60Hz) the top portion of the screen jumps for half a second and returns to normal. I can not find the root cause for this, it is not the video card. Your results may vary. The projector runs hot, as expected due to the small number of cooling fans. Shutdown is accomplished in 6 seconds which I believe is too short for the projector to properly cool down. Fan noise is not bad, noticeable, but you get accustomed to it. Lamps are expensive - this is a disposable projector in my opinion.
