Excellent value for money (less than larger screen TVs). Easy to set up and locate.
Would prefer to have a wider angle lens to allow the unit to be located closer to the screen (needs about 4m for an 8' screen). Needs external sound...to be expected really.
I have had one of these Sony VPL-HS1 projectors for two years now and am very pleased with it. I project onto a 8' electric screen. This is the maximum recommended screen size and gives just acceptable resolution. The side shot feature make the unit really flexible in terms of room location. Set up is easy. For sound you do really need external speakers and an amp.
