Personal Experience
Hi, i'm PJ road warrior. Purchased this cs1 in 2002 in Europa, brand new. it has now 1367hrs on the first lamp. When i do "Cinema-rural" down here in Argentina the cs1 goes with me, lots of dust and bad roads. I have to clean the unit often, disasembling the PJ to get the the lcds, lamp optics etc clean, the filters are made for home/office use i guess. Anyway, it still works great in a dark room or at night open-air(hey, 600 ansi aren't 2500). No "tinted image" problems found yet, other then the ones caused by dust on the lcds. cross fingers.

"enter" and "Power-off" buttons sometimes do not work the first time, have to press them firmly and they react.
Dust filters are very coarse.
No adjustable feets, very akward.
