Personal Experience
Had this projector for 10 months now and it my main viewing source in the home i.e tv/dvd. Had a problem with it after about a month, it just wouldnt light the lamp unless I removed it from the mount, opened it up and removed the lamp and filter then put them back in again??? It went to a repair centre where they couldnt find anything wrong, so it went to Sony, again couldnt find anything wrong?? 6 weeks later I got it back (had to collect it) but it did work. Now I have the same problem again, not that it ever went away but was less frequent until now. I have 2 months left of warranty so they better sort it!!!!
I am sure this is just a one off but it just had to be mine didnt it !!!!!!!
Would still recomend the unit, I am projecting onto a screen 6'x4' and its the ultimate cinema in my own home!
Cheers Jim.
