Summary: Great value for an entry level projector
Comment: Installed this projector to replace an InFocus SP4805 projector, and I'm in love. This projector offers everything you need for a a quick and easy home theater setup. It's insanely quiet. The first time I turned it on, I didn't realize it was working because I couldn't hear it. That's a huge change from my old InFocus. It's bright, and gave a fine picture in the middle of the day. The contrast is great, and the color is as accurate as I have seen in a sub $1000 projector. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a good value.

Summary: Very nice product.
Comment: I had trouble trying to figure out what I wanted as a first projector. Well...I had to make up my mind sooner or later, and glad I got this one as my first. Entry level at its best I guess.

I did spend a few evenings researching the technologies and projectors with different price levels and was willing to spend much more than the price of this unit.

I have no idea what the "better" DLP projectors are all about, but when the ol' lady started watching the commercials...her tongue was hanging out and I could see "wow" from her lips.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who does not rip everything apart and is not critical about minor details. Great price and I know we will probably not upgrade for a LONG time as we are both happy with this unit.

We watch this unit regularly now for I guess about a month.

We ended up painting the wall over the fireplace, and framed it using the reflective paint available online line (somewhere), but it looks great even on the bare wall!!

If you can, try and get the lowdown in real life on these units though...and do a "little" research on the technologies. DLP vs LCD, etc...both have their "pros and cons", both are reasonably priced,

What sold me on DLP was that it won't "burnin" but we shut our "stuff" off anyway, so LCD would have made a good choice also. Just try and check them out in real life if possible.

Overall...I'll give this unit a "10" and for the price..."11", and just to let you know...I am a little anal on perfection.

Summary: Could not show 720p HD signal. Support non-existent.
Comment: The picture on the projector is good and the price attractive BUT it refuses to show a high-def signal (720p) from my Sony Blu-ray so I have to run it in standard low-def 480p. I tried contacting support many times but they were completely useless - they do not answer email or web support and phone support you wait ages and they offer to call you back and then don't.

Summary: Theatre for home personal use
Comment: Unlike other people, I don't know about the performance of other projectors. I found this projector pretty good value for what I paid ($800) to see movies projected on my wall (which is off-white in color).

The 16:9 ratio gives a theatre like image and the remote works bouncing off the wall itself. Have not seen much difference between using a VGA cable and HDMI when watching DVDs. The only objectionable part would be the rainbow effect - you tend to catch the RGB separation if you blinked at the screen while moving your head and this can be somewhat irritating.

Overall, I would rate the projector worth the value I paid.

Summary: Adequate
Comment: I liked this projector, it had what I needed mostly. Very good picture for this price range.

I was a little frustrated with the adjustment controls, it wasn't quite as vertically flexible as I would have liked.

I ended up returning the projector, because it didn't have the throw range I needed for my projector room. I needed something with a 20 ft throw range, and the Mitsubishi only had a 15 ft throw for the 100 inch screen I have (my fault I should have checked this ahead of time).

It's too bad because the picture was solid. I ended up getting a Panasonic, which has a large thow capability.
