Wolf Cinema DCL-200FD LED

Has anyone seen or had an experience with this projector? I'm guessing it's another projector based on the Chilin unit like the SIM2 MICO and the Vango.

I'm surprised there is no thread for this projector, nor a review anywhere to be found.

Has NO ONE bought once since 2010?!!?

This is basically a rebranded Vango and Mico 50. Wolf Cinema projectors are very niche, even in the home theater community. If you're curious about it's performance try and find a review for either projector. There are a bunch out there.

Were the reviews of the Vango and Mico 50 generally excellent? I read one or two which were great, but were there any negative reviews?

There is a long Vango owner's thread. I have one and it suits me just fine. I bought it as my 'desert island' projector while I wait for laser/led 4k. If I have to wait five more years that is fine. I am quite happy with the Vango. I have had 9" CRTs, D-ILAs and LCDs so I have some perspective but not as much as many others here. In my very light-controlled theater it paints a 130" diagonal quite nicely. I suspect that the Vango owners drift away from these forums because they no longer have that nagging 'upgraditus.'

Thanks Vlubbers... I am thinking of the Wolf version. Have there been issues with LED light output reduction or color shifting over time?

I know nothing about the Wolf. My LED has been drift free. No color drift, no focus drift. Output has not varied such that I can measure it in two years. I turn it on, I turn it off. That is all the drama there is. It took me a year to get over the need to fiddle with it. It does not require fiddling. So I play the guitar. No, just kidding.
