1 Star Review   By member nostradave2009 - Oct 22, 2009   

Strengths: Excellent for the first 200hours of operation

Weakness: Guarenteed to fail after 2000 hours of operation

Projecter is great for 2000 hours, then almost to the minute @2010hours (when out of warranty) or when the globe is replaced after 2000 hours a blue haze appears on the screen. There is absolutely nothing you can do about it short of replacing the prism lens assembly @ $1800.00 (Aus). Hitachi take no responsibility for this extremely common problem (check the blogs, hundreds of complaints) and simply say " The projector is out of warranty. You will need to pay for the repair yourself". We would suggest, almost all purchasers of this projector, would (and rightly so) expect it to last more than one lamp life, 2000 hours, this is not the case. We recommend to prospective purchasers, CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND, if you want your projector to last more than 2000 hours buy something else. We fully expect total ignorance of our comments above by Hitachi as they appear to be happy to take your money once and have no interest in your repeat business or word of mouth positive recommendations. BEWARE-BEWARE-BEWARE-BEWARE-BEWARE-BEWARE-BEWARE!!!!!

Good deal on a HD projector
4 Star Review   By member h_xd - Jul 9, 2007   

Strengths: Native 1280x720, excellent image quality, HDCP support

Weakness: No HDMI input

I've watched HDDVD and HDTV with this projector, on the wall, only at night. Huge image with great detail and without noticeable distortion. Talk about theatre experience! Feel dizzy if I sit too close. All for only $700! Unfortunately it doesn't have HDMI input. Have problem playback HDDVD even if I use a HDMI to DVI converter.

3 Star Review   By member ratheen - Mar 11, 2007   

Strengths: very good zoom crystal clear picture (when using Progresive mode on DVD player) can display very big image (when there is enough distance)

Weakness: Makes a lot of noise gets very hot light leaks from sides defaults to 4:3 mode when changing some setting on DVD

i expected more from Hitachi, i didnt know it would make so much sound. but when i use it with my home theater you can;t hear it. i had some issues with the edges it does not make a perfect rectangle, i still have to make some changes to the settings
