5 out of 5 eggsThe Cheap paradise

Pros: Price! Price Price! Low cost to replace the lamp compare to most. Easy set up, easy controls more connections for more options than most. X-box 360 LOOKS Very nice! Thats the main reason I buy to play on it and I'm very happy with the resolution and the colors. Its sharp like gears of war sharp. I love it! Don't think because its 854x480 its not going to look good because it does looks very good on Component video mode. I'm very happy thanks newegg for giving these super good deals. On the Ben-Q website W-100 is $1200.

Cons: Resolution for gaming other than X-box ( PC )not the best for big screen but at close range like 4' from the wall W-100 got killer graphics just not too big.

Other Thoughts: I try to clean up while it was on with Dust off. NEVER DO THIS as I almost lost the lamp when it caught fire. One close call for me. I didn't mean to spray inside, only the lens outside but don't do it just to be safe.

1 out of 5 eggsA follow up review

Pros: Cheap and great while it lasted

Cons: bulb lasted less than 400 hours then died. It costs about $400 to replace. No warranty options just out of luck!

Other Thoughts: I loved this but will not even bother replacing the bulb at about $1 per hour it isn't worth it!

3 out of 5 eggsold school

Pros: PRICE is great!!

Cons: This model displays in a resolution slightly under the normal television standard of 525 horizontal lines, and no pixel specs, because NTSC (normal TV) is analog. It is, however the current digital display standard for SD or Standard Definition TV.

Other Thoughts: SDTV is very quickly becoming obsolete, with the entire video and TV industry racing to go HDTV and 16x9 wide screen (keeping up with the Jones'), which, at 1080i is incredible looking, with brilliant color, and LCD will last much longer than projection, as bulbs burn out, and LCDs, in theory, should last 20 years. Projectors have significant fan noise, so have a loud sound system, if you go this route.
As Blue Ray and/or HDVD take center stage in the hi def war, 1080i or p will become increasingly affordable and mainstream, both in players and displays. They cost the same amount to manufacture as the standard stuff, pretty much.. I don't feel that it's a good idea to invest in Standard Definition equipment right now, nor do I want to spend $2,000 for a display that will be $500 in, say, a year? I'm a TV broadcast engineer, and that's my $0.02. Good luck on your decision.

5 out of 5 eggsquick answer

Pros: it's cheap

Cons: it's not HD

Other Thoughts: in answer to your question you're talking about a $1500 difference. Obviously the LCD is going to be a better choice but the question is whether your want to spend the money. Personally if you have $2,000 to spend you should invest in a HD projector which is still going to cost you under $2,000. Another choice is to get a smaller tv for $1500 and to get this for $500 and have both.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat projector! great deal!

Pros: movies look fantastic and huge on a normal basement wall from ~12 feet away. setup was super fast and easy - the projector's automatic video source detection works flawlessly. screen door effect is not noticeable unless standing right in front of the screen.

Cons: The only minor problem is the rainbow effect on the screen. I can just barely see it when I glance to one side or another. It's not a big deal. Also, make sure you get this project at around s i x hu ndre d d0ll ars - seven or above is too much.

Other Thoughts: As always, Newegg's processing and shipping is blazing fast. Each time I order, I'm surprised by how fast the packages arrive.

4 out of 5 eggsBudget Movie theater at home

Pros: Good EDTV quality image 480p (which is better than standard TV signal of 480i), the picture looks as sharp as my nice SDTV 32" flatscreen even blown up at 90+"
Color looks great/accurate on the presets out of the box, but you will need to adjust it to suit your screening surface.

Better than a movie theater with digital 5.1 sound system and a progressive scan DVD player.

The device itself seems very sturdy and well made...a quality piece of work (so far). It is VERY quiet. Very easy to use menu and backlit remote. For the price its hard to beat.

Cons: Nice and bright, but you can't make it too bright or your blacks look washed out on a white projector screen. This is the main dilemma with all projectors.
Not suitable for movie watching in even a moderately lit room. You can see it ok in a dim/afternoon lit room, but I wouldn't say it looks "good" for movies, but definatly watchable in a lit room as long as the light isn't shining brightly on the screen area.

Other Thoughts: I have a inexpensive Home theatre in a box sound system and this projector with a progressive scan/upscaling DVD player.

You can use a good quality 3 connector RCA cable instead of the very expensive HDMI or Component cables they try and make you buy (i use red for red, white for blue and yellow connector for green)

Doesn't look best on a white projector screen. The picture looks best on a uncolored grey surface. If you must get a screen, get a high contrast grey one-this projector is bright enough

Best screen would be a wall painted with a special projector paint, made to make blacks look black but still reflect the colors being projected brightly, while absorbing ambient light. Save your screen money and use it on paint for your wall or screen.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

Pros: Cheap. Dropped 40 bucks since I bought it a little over a week ago. Looks pretty darn good with an HD receiver plugged in.

Cons: Screen door effect if you're too close. I have a computer plugged into the DVI port and text is a bit blocky but not too horrible. Wherever the projector is placed had better be fairly dark.

Other Thoughts: I have a freakin' 84" screen in my bedroom!
