Yes, we are still alive. IMO you made a very good choice and with HW10 you can expect a nice improvement over your old Sanyo.

I have been very satisfied with my purchase. Maybe it is quiet here because we do not have any major problems with our HW10s (no dust blobs, etc.) or maybe it is because of the current economy, probably both.

We're watching movies. You made a good choice.

Yep, we are a bunch of happy owners without problems to post in here, that's why this thread is dead.

so I got the projector hooked up tonight. OOTB it is BEAUTIFUL! destroys my Sanyo PLV-Z5! so very much brighter, which is something I wasn't really expecting to be honest. The size is a lot more substantial than my Sanyo. Makes the Sanyo feel like a toy.

I am very happy with this purchase and I've only had it setup for 2 hours!

I do wish the screws came with it to mount the projector to the mount. I had to make an Ace Hardware run to get the correct (5M) screws.

btw, do you guys put the lens cap back on after use? Seems like it would be easy to knock it out of focus by doing that. I'm used to the Sanyo's automatic door.

How about BRIGHTNESS/Lumens compare to all other Sony previous models?
post #819 of 833
I received my sony projector today from another store (transfer) and the power cord that was sent does not fit.. They sent a power cord that has a L shape at the end that plugs into the projector. I need a power cord that is straight at the end that plugs into the projector. For those we have the projector already, can someone please send me the specs for the power cord (amps, volts, length, etc.). I am thinking I can use the same power cord that is used for one of my PC monitors.

Nothing special. A PC power cord will certainly carry the current - similar power consumption.

Any input on those cheaper oem bulbs?? How do they compare to the original lmp-h201?
post #822 of 833
mrtbig,

You do get what you paid for; I won't use a cheaper oem bulb, unless it is manufactured in Japan.

If you follow some of the other threads, quality control or lack of, is a major source of early bulb failure or dimness.

So my HW10 up and died...its last signature was this screen:




I just replaced it with a Panny 8000; before i throw it out, would anyone have an interest in this for parts?
post #824 of 833
I went thru a HW10, which was replaced by a HW15 under an extended Sony warranty when the HDMI board failed. Sony claimed they could not get the board even from Japan. Then the HDMI board failed on the HW15. I gave up and bought the Panny 8000 also and never looked back. Two failed Sony projectors within 5 years is not good enough for me!
post #825 of 833
I've been enjoying mine for years now... with really long bulb life.

Hello All,

Hope you are all well.

My HW10 is still going strong. We are now on our 3rd lamp without any problems. Everyone that sees it wants a 'room like ours', and we love the picture it throws up.

After owning an LCD projector I am so glad I switched to the SXRD, have had zero dust issues that so plagued the LCD unit we had.

Probably will not upgrade until 4k with HDMI 2.0, hopefully with some form of disk or solid state media for the content, downloading is not an option with a 250gb monthly cap on data!

Later,

Tony

Photos?
post #830 of 833
Can anyone tell me how to make the projector continue to use bulbs that have reached the 3,000 hour cutoff limit?
post #831 of 833
Is there a reset timer function to fool the HW10 projector?
post #832 of 833
I have that the key is to unplug the projector for at least 5 minutes.
post #833 of 833
Will there be a HW model above the HW10? They could be referring to vw70. thank you KswUgB
