Now that we've all placed our orders for these $1700 LT150s, I thought an index of useful LT150 posts might be, uh, useful. If anyone has the time and inclination, a comprehensive FAQ, with newbie installation tips, would be most appreciated!

Shootouts and Reviews
Grant Smyth's shootout started the furor over the LT150. This long thread covers lots of ground.

Grant later posted a nice LT150 FAQ , with updated recommendations based on subsequent tinkering.


Some other shootouts and reviews:
Projector Central Review: "Highly Recommended"
LT150 vs Infocus LP350
LT150 vs LP350 vs Sanyo XP18N
Comparison of the LT150 with LT155 (LCD), JVC G-11 DILA, and Electrohome CRT
Discussion of LT150 Pros and Cons
HDTV and the LT150
Pictures of the LT150 in Action
Li On's Review/Dithering Problems


NEC Website
NEC's Document Library for the LT150
Free Leather Case Offer


Mounting and Installation
Calculating Throw Distances
Ceiling Installation
Homemade Ceiling Mount
Coffee Table Installation

Setup and Calibration
Grant Smyth's FAQ is a good starting point
Tom LaStrange's LT150 FAQ and Setup
Prog. Scan vs HTPC
Connecting a Progressive Scan DVD Player
White level setting should be turned off
Specific Settings for Hi-power
GeForce settings are somewhere in this thread...

I've been mulling this over the last few days. We've really overrun the LCD/DLP/DILA board with LT150 talk. Since there is now a massive uptick in the number of LT150 owners using the projector for HT, would there be interest in creating an LT150 Hometheater site? I'd probably be willing to host one...

Very nice!


I'd be willing to host a site as well. Looks like we need an official LT150 "club" list like was put together for D-ILA owners a while back.


And while we're on the subject of building a little community, how about we have a telethon and start a collection for those of us who bought our LT150's before the price dropped through the floor http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

How about a telethon for bulb replacement! I'd be thrilled to see a dedicated LT150 site. I'd also be willing to contribute digital photos of my setup once it arrives.

You linked to an article with "Warranty not transferrable", but the article really seemed to imply that it was, certainly if you passed along the receipt. Maybe you should change your link text to "Warranty transfer issues" or something like that...

This is awesome! Thanks Lurk!


I second the idea of creating an LT150 faq site. I think we should post a list of common questions and we can all chime in to create some collective answers. I know I've learned alot over the last month with my LT150.


Plus with all the pictures from Tom, Grant, Les etc...


My custom LT150 based HT setup will be finished soon, and I will be happy to shoot some photo's to show it off!

Well in theory I'm joining the DLP club after lurking on this forum for about a year and a half. Missed the Viewsonic 830 deal, but seemed to catch this one. I ordered last Thursday and got the initial email from Dell but no confirm. Called this morning - they had a record that I send a request but no track of the actual order. After about a 30 minutes on the phone got things straightened out! If you did not get a confirm number I strongly suggest you pursue it.

Here are a couple of links not strictly LT150 but I guess a few people like me will find them useful.


NEC doc library http://www.nectech.com/documentlibrary/index.htm


NEC Promohttp:// www.nectech.com//presentationproducts/leathercase/index.htm


MrWiggles extra long extra clean cable assemble guide http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/Forum10/HTML/006683.html


Radeon Links http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/Forum12/HTML/009180.html


I would appreciate any info regarding Athlon's and Radeon 32DDR setups. Possible recent registry export (I run WinMe, AOpen AK73 Pro MB, 1gig Athlon, 128MB mem, Creative Lab Live, Pioneer DVD105, Plextor PX-W1610A, IBM 45Gig and a couple of ethernet cards to talk my local LAN and a cable modem)


Thanks to everyone on the Forum! Reading it has really payed off!

Mflaster -- good call, I didn't make it to the bottom of the thread. I updated the link. MikeA - thanks for the links, I'll add them to the top of the page tonight.

I'll take a stab at mining the nuggets from these links into a single page FAQ. I'll start working on it tonight and will preserve links to the original threads.
