  • Customer Review: Looks ok, works like?

    We bought this unit for use at the office and it worked great for the first few months. Then it started searching for signal from time to time. Now it just quits working after about 30-40 minutes with the Lamp Fail indicator lit. A shut down wait 5-10 min and restart gets it running again, at least for a time.

    After reading the other review about BenQ insides did a little searching and found the BenQ PB8220 looks very much the same as the VP6120. Hmmmm we feel cheated and are looking into repair/return options.

    Customer Review: My VP6120 is unreliable -- and I think I know why >

    When I first set this up it performed perfectly - picture is great, I bought it for DVD play back and use a PC for doing just that; you can't beat XGA DVD play back using a PC. (well you couldn't at the time anyway, but you can buy HD DVD players now which should do just as well). 2 months later it kept shutting down with the Lamp Fail indicator lit. I phoned HP and after a few calls they sent a new lamp with little fuss, cheers HP! But the new lamp had some sort of problem and it produced bright patches on the screen (the kind I didn't want - by the way HP I don't think ANY of your users would be stupid enough to NOT try projecting a different image, DUH).

    After another couple of calls HP sent a second replacement lamp, cheers again. Everything was fine for a few months, but now the main cooling fan has failed, so the thing overheats and shuts down. I couldn't resist the temptation and opened the unit up (its just a bloody $5 fan crippling my $2000 projector):

    THE GUTS ARE ALL BENQ! This projector appears to be a rebadged BENQ projector. Only thing is that BENQ's equivalent is only 1700 lumens / 200W lamp. HPs is 2000 lumens / 250W lamp. Is my HP fitted with an overpowered lamp perhaps? Did HP decide to squeeze too much from their (ahem... i mean, BENQs, or do I really mean ACERs?) design?

    Conclusion: This projector looks and feels like HP - but does it last like HP? I might be the unlucky one.
