“I purchased the InFocus X1A used, as my introduction to the projector world, and for the price I paid was very pleased with what I got. I used this projector on a 110" bedsheet, (definitely a budget setup) and was satisfied with viewing at night in the dark. However, daytime viewing was difficult as this was a moderately lit room and the projector's light output seemed pretty low. Setup was...” --coastercard
“I recently purchased a house with a basement theater that came with a Sony VPL-HS20. Considering it came with the house, I was more than happy to take it. Features: The VPL-HS20 is a 768p projector that takes a 720p input signal natively. As hard as I try, I can not get the thing to take a 1:1 pixel mapping from my PC attached via HDMI or DVI. There is always around 5% cut off from each side...” --varkeast

“I purchased this to use as a very large PC monitor. Of course this made it a smart TV before TVs were smart. The first one ran for about 750 hours and quite. I bought a new bulb but it was the power supply. So there I sat with a new bulb and a good used one so what was I to do but buy a used one. The second one has a much cleaner - truer display and takes much longer cooling everything...” --LowGear
“I was replacing my older InFocus IN72 DLP that had not been in service for a couple of years. I decided to set my theater up again (after a couple of moves) and when I did there was a large white stripe on the right side of the display. That sent me shopping for something budget oriented with decent quality, easy on the wallet. I leaned on many of the other reviewers that spoke highly of this...” --savrip
“From my Amazon review: @HomeTekkie's review is the same as mine: In different words, I second everything @HomeTekkie found at fault w/ his/her Epson 8100, my experience was nearly identical. We purchased our projector in mid 2010 for about $1,400, and this was based on the many glowing reviews, and especially the "best in the business customer service" as put forth by the dealer...” --S-curvy

“I conducted an exhaustive amount of research before settling on the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB. Given that I would be using the projector in a multi-purpose family room, and not a dedicated theater room, I needed something versatile. I wanted a projector that would deliver a great movie theater experience when I wanted it, yet be flexible enough to be used every day for watching TV and...” --DDT0C
