"BRIGHT! Crisp! HD! Get this projector! Best Sub $1000 DLP."4.5 starson by GatorRock
Pros: Sub $1000. HD! Bright, Bright, BRIGHT!!! Quiet.
Cons: A LARGE unadjustable throw angle-
Summary: I've owned the X1 infocus for 3+ years and decided it was time for an upgrade. I wanted and HD projector and one that would truly seem like an upgrade.
I am NOT disappointed!
This machine is brighter, quieter, and SO MUCH crisper in picture. Heck after having the X1 this machine may be too bright - very good problem to have! I’ve already put this in low power for the bulb and adjusted the brightness down more- this means that I can easily view this during the day in the room that the projector is located.
This machine has made me happy in every way (except one- see below). I have no regrets and for it being under $1000 (even under $900 if you search a little bit) you can’t get better.
If you are trying to decide on a sub- $1000 HD projector, this one is fantastic and you should have no regrets.
Okay my one MAJOR problem. The built in throw angle is enormous! I cannot add a ceiling mount to hang this projector from and thus I HAD to rearrange my entertainment center and its location to allow this projector to work. You must have space to either have your projector below your screen/wall or have a place to set a ceiling mount. It cannot be at the same level of your screen or even slightly above without having major adjustments. But the HD1000 does have a pretty good Keystone correction function (both up and down and left and right) so if you have to set this unit at an angle (like myself) you can make the picture look pretty close to normal.
