Personal Experience
Very easy to set up. the picture when new was excellent. A real stunner on anamorphic DVD's.

Problems
At the first bulb replacement, the ballast circuit broke (warranty repair). At the second bulb replacement after 1500 hours the ballast blew again. I'm still waiting for the estimate. Incredibly noisy almost to distraction. Cannot be kept dust free. The picture degraded after the 1st 1500 hours significantly with pixel dropout and blotches on the screen. A very bad choince for projector although the choices were limited in 1999.
