i will share one good thinks every body listen carefully if you use 3d silver screen projector screen the quality is going to be excellent and so sharp like 3d
it doesnt mutter u use cre x1000 or cre x2000vx during day and night you can see excellent picture
A time ago I get CRE x2000 PX and want to share some pictures. Later this or maybe next week I'll try to make a detailed review on it.
Screen: Digis Optimal-C 180x180 MW / DSOC-1102
Camera: Canon PowerShot A3000 IS / Automatic mode
Video (720p) shots: MPCHC => DXVA => Intel HD Video (Celeron 1037U) => HDMI (video mode: 1920x1080@50hz)
How did you replace the fuse on the CREX1000? I sent it back for repair, and when it returned after a full test and pass, would not work at all. They said try replacing the fuse. However I am having difficulty in taking the top panel off. Is there a method or process that I can follow?
Any hints welcomed.
Ledmaster, since I'm not an expert in digital projector at all, I can't argue with that. The only thing I may say, that the projector satisfies my simple needs for now. Maybe it would be enough to have HD (1280x720) projector, but there seems to be no any cheap model at market with lens shift.
About lumens, we have to turn on a dim light (~20W) while watching at the evening - it is too bright for me and my wife when twilight. We'll see how it goes when white nights comes to St. Petersburg =)
By the way, as I admtitted to Yuri Tichomirov, this effect is not a displace, but a chromatic abberation of cheap main lens. To avoid that you should spend not less then a couple of thousends bucks on it.
You guys still speaking about this projector! btw i got too lazy and got other projects so i didn't do EDID flash, even tho i think some problems could be solved doing that. I've used this projector as a tv and used it to watch movies from computer, what i've noticed that the picture quality is worse if i've not done my custom resolution thing (to get rid of that overscan).
Yes picture quality can be slighly better if using the tricks i posted couple posts ago, (tho im not sure if u need to make custom driver too, im using my custom driver with the nvidia custom settings shown before to eliminate overscan and /magically/ improving picture quality).
Would i buy this projector again if i knew what i now know? Propably not there are couple reasons, it is an unfinished projector it could be average projector if the biggest problems would have been fixed.
Next thing wagon i think im gonna hop in is the Ultra-D Glasses Free Television, too bad that the projector industry is still not developing as fast as it could!
EDIT EDIT: I uploaded a EDID OVERRIDE .INF (for x1000NXL not sure if works with other versions) so you guys who are still using this **** can get the 1x1 pixelmappin, as i said year ago it is not a perfect. With pc you still get pretty nice picture on fullHD resolution. You need to disable Digital Signel Checking in your windows to be able to install this, this was mostly done checking phoenix EDID code and compiled afterwards.

Also after a year of using it, last couple month several hours a day, and a recent visit to the consumer electronics store (best buy) where there is a significant shift to 4K displays, as a whole it's still been a good purchase, the colors suck but the overall is much more film like with less pixelation than any of the lcd.plasma screens I've seen today, and suitable if your using web delivered content (netflix, popcorntime, youtube).
I tried to solve this problem on installation more than a year ago, and don't remember the details. The main thing was to change projection distance. Chromatic aberration on the pixels was less noticeable, than with the standard lens. However, because of the differing sizes of the LCD matrixes with the size, recommended for this lens, a bluish offset at the left side of the screen and rose at the right has become more noticeable. I believe this is due to the imperfection of prismatic combiner..
I added a circular polarizer from a camera, to the front which if dialed one way adds magenta, the other green. As the 'black' tends to be on the greenish side, adding magenta helps dial it in a way not possible through the onscreen controls as far as I can tell, to get the color balance
I added it to reduce brightness at night (as I'm light sensitive in evenings), which it does do, but not to the point of removing too much brightness.
what's odd is it doesn't show up in the static when no signal is present or the opening screen so suspect that it's the HDMI input that got damaged...conveniently right after the 2 year warranty date > anyway I'm trying to contract CRE about a repair, still wading through email correspondance with them.
And why so many issues?
Why are there no professional reviews yet?
Why aren't people hearing back on warranty or service issues?
This model is one of the few that seems to use decent LCD panels in the design, but it can't get away from their false brightness advertising, and it seems like people are finding out first hand just how poorly built these models are for long term use. I've certainly seen any number of LCD projectors fail over the years, but that's a tiny percentage after years of use... Nothing like this.
I certainly wouldn't spend hours of my time trying to figure out what electronics are bad in something I owned.
But, it sounds more like it is going up against the LG PF1500U which sounds like it delivers similar lumen output with a entirely LED light engine, nearly dead silent operation due to a well thought out case design, and a FULL 1080p design for what may be a similar $1,000 price point.
I don't get it. The only way these things sell is by completely lying to consumers about the specifications. No USA base of operations for support and questions. Typically terrible websites, etc. It's not that hard to just be honest because from what I can tell, it's only a matter of time before one of these companies gets sued for lying to consumers about the specifications. When a group gets so sick and tired of the lies, that they take a company for whatever they can.
Imagine I buy 300 of these projectors for a school. Only the projectors aren't bright enough. So, I sue them not just for my purchase price, but for every cent it takes to install projectors which DO measure up to the brightness claims which are made. As well, since that will only come from a traditional lamp driven projector, I also get the price required for every replacement lamp needed to keep that projector going for the length of time that is claimed on the product I originally purchased.
This is long overdue IMO because as a consumer it is beyond ridiculous how much we are flat out lied to in this particular market.
I have to try that camera lens trick thanks for that.
EDIT: Mine was broken in the way that image got some reddish lines across everywhere and then i got the same issue as the first buyer (yellow spot). I have to add that i used the projector in everyday basis as my "tv", sometimes it was left on for quite long times hopefully getting that back soon. I would still not recommend this you could get pretty beastly TV for the price even better if bought second hand.

My dealing with customer service from more than one direct Chinese purchases have all been horrible experiences.
Anyone that can't afford to gamble and loose the money should not go to the Casino to play. Yes, I'm talking about buying anything direct from a Chinese dealer!
I have a color problem with my CRE-X1000. White is ... a bit "yellow".
Have you any idea? The menu for settings is really poor and I can not set
the offset of leds.
As for why people bought these three years ago, there hardly were any other options. The Samsung '1000 lumens', did it ever see any sales. Anyway, we all read the first user experience here from France. Only way to get service is to hop on a plane and go there with local assistance. Dealing with non-local vendors can be hard, when it is going to cost them money (heck even with local suppliers it is hard to get your legal rights acknowledged, witthout going to court), let alone vendors in a different jurisdiction. Basically you are doing a tradedeal, so even if there is consumer protection regulation in place (wich there isn't, you waved that buying directly from the manufacturer.
Edit: oops it has already been going for four years, not three. That Samsung FM10 seems to have been a one off, only available shortly.

I have got a CRE X1000 and the images are really "yellow". The white balance is really bad! I have tried to set with the factory menu(1234) but it 's the mess.
I read (with interest) the posts from the guru LEDMASTER and I am ready to update the electronics in the projector (I am engineer in electronics).
Have you any suggestions to get a bright "white" and not a yellow "white".
Wish you a success.
Do you think, I can remove one resistor (4,3 ohms)?
Nice foto. Yes I guess so. But it was a lot time ago, I am not sure for 100%. You should investigate a thick wires connetion from a blue LED by yourself.
As all LEDs connected in series, they have equal current (regardless of shunts). To achieve right white balance, an intensity of blue LED should be the smallest. That is why blue LED shunt is the largest (in power).
