Personal Experience
For the price this is the best projector that money can buy. Contrast levels are superb, detail levels very good, colours natural. I currently run the projector in eco-mode and I have not found brightness to be a problem (although I do run it in a lighting controlled room). I side tested with the Sony HS20 (detail was better but the contrast and brightness were appalling!), Ben Q 8700, Toshiba MT 8, Sharp 9000, and Infocus 5700. To me the 200 was equal if not better than all of the above.

100 + hours on the bulb - no problems
