2002/11/25 dumbest reason for choosing HS10

Tim has obviously spent a lot of time and effort and used the search engine to develop a great index for just about everything related to the HS-10.

You can use these links to easily browse through a wealth of information. Please note that most of the threads referenced have been closed. Otherwise we'd probably have a repeat of the massive HS-10 posting problem.

So, use this as a reference tool, but continue to post your HS-10 questions and info to one of the two official HS-10 threads.

Thanks again, Tim. Great Job!!

I'll second that emotion. Members like Tim are the reason why AVS Forum is the Internet leader in home theater information and discussion. I'll even go so far as to say that I hope everyone interested in the VPL-HS10 will try out his index first before using the search engine... hopefully this will alleviate some of the burden on the servers.

Nice going, Tim! :cool:

just a thought but if i got the code for a dynafaq would the mods use it? we use this on several of my email lists. what it does is look for certain things and it would update the faq. least thats what i was told how it works. or someone could create a script that would do the same thing. this would allow the posts to continue and a faq would never really be out of date.. oh and a person doesnt have to keep updating this post or other posts since it would be done automaticly. or as someone else said in the other thread about having sub cats for the different problem projectors that get allot of posts.. maybe one for sony one for panys son on and so forth with another sub cat for compare and contrast.

Thanks Tim!

The FAQ http://hs10.cnchost.com/ has been updated a LOT - more info just about everywhere.

I also have a forum up now allowing you to input your specifications(Projector Settings + Screen Type + HTPC(if used) Settings) so we can all compare and get our HS-10's configured to the max!

Can't wait 'til I get a HS10 myself!

I just read a review of the VPL-HS10 in the latest Widescreen Review magazine. The review talks about optional lenses (e.g., longer throw) being available for this projector but gives no details.

I just did a search of this whole under $5K Digital Projector form for info on a long throw lens for the VPL-HS10 and came up with nothing.

Does anyone have any info on an optional long throw lens?

This projector looks like it would suit my needs except its throw is too short for what I need.

The tele lens is the VPLL-CT10 according to the sony brochures. Search on that and you'll find that it costs half as much as the projector. There is a web site in Japan with tele and wide throw charts but it is in Japanese. I think the throw distance would be 15.75 feet for a 16:9 80 inch diagonal screen.

I contacted two Sony dealers and they said that optional lens will NOT fit the HS10. Who knows what to believe...

I noticed that some of you "bumped" this post. I thought I'd let you know that this thread is referenced in the hot specs thread, which we will continue to leave "stuck" at the top of the forum for the foreseeable future...

What happened to 3 or 4 of the DVI posts linked in the list?

Sigh...probably consolidated with another thread, and now lost forever.

I haven't seen this question under the threads above. My apologies if I missed it.

How long is it taking to others to get their HS10 projectors???

I'm going on 11 weeks since I ordered it.
