DLP Technology: Superb Imaging and Convenience
The X2 relies on DLP, or digital imaging, technology from Texas Instruments. DLP is entirely digital, which means that you'll never experience image degradation or "yellowing"--better known as color decay--that other imaging technologies experience over time. Projectors based on DLP technology are fully compatible with digital signals--with no analog conversion necessary--making them compatible with everything from digital cameras to gaming consoles. The Digital Micromirror Device that forms the heart of DLP technology is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, giving DLP the advantage of being extremely portable for a wide range of uses.

Features an intuitive keypad on the top of the project for easy navigation. View larger.

Connection panel is located at the rear of the unit. A detailed rear view or view larger.
The X2 provides a stunning 2000:1 contrast ration that offers superb imaging for home video or gaming. The projector's ANSI lumen output is rated at 1600 at full-power and 1100 in low-lamp--and, therefore, lower fan noise--mode. The projector's 200-watt lamp fills your screen brilliantly with 1700 lumens, and in low-power mode it will give you an amazing 3,000 hours of use. The X2 features a maximum projection of 32.3 feet, with at least five feet needed on the lower end. The projector's zoom lens means that images will fit the screen perfectly from wherever the projector is located.

Unlike many other digital projectors that practically require a technical degree to operate them, the InFocus X2 is designed for easy connectivity and use. The connection panel is located conveniently at the rear of the unit. Inputs include one M1-DA port that takes computer RGB, DVI, and HDTV; one S-video port; and one composite video jack. In addition there is one set of stereo RCA audio inputs. The connections are color-coded, making a laptop, PDA, DVD, cable or satellite TV system, digital camera, or game console connection as easy as it gets, no matter where you are.

Convenient, Easy-to-Use Features
The InFocus interface features intuitive keypads, remote controls, and user-friendly menus that deliver one-touch operation. The projector is compatible with DVI, HDTV 1080i, 720p, 480p, and computer resolutions up to XGA (1024x768). With it, you can project NTSC, PAL, or SECAM standard videos from the rear or front. At just 9.8 by 12.9 by 4.2 inches (W by L by H) and 6.8 pounds, the X2 is portable enough to bring home from the office whenever you're ready to kick back to some brilliant video or exciting gaming. And with a built-in 2.5 watt speaker, you won't need to drag extra speakers with you for you presentations.

In short, the InFocus X2 is a multipurpose workhorse that's designed to pull double duty, giving you low-cost, easy-to-use functionality at work, and brilliant imaging for your home theater and gaming needs.

Bottom line - best major purchase I have made since I bought a home with a finished basement!

I got the projector and mounted it on the ceiling in my basement projecting on a light-brown wall. I expected that I would need to paint the walls white, or get a screen, but was shocked by the amazing picture quality. Here are the details:

1) Comcast Cable with HiDef Box. Hidef program is so amazing it makes me want to cry. Sports programing blows the mind away. I even enjoy watching boring hi-def shows with the wife, like the Oscars, just because I am so amazed at how crystal clear the picture looks. You feel like you are there! Regular TV looks surprisingly great too, but setting it up right is critical. Make sure to change the aspect ratio back to Native (vs 16:9 when watching hi-def channels). Ensure that the HDTV cable box has the following settings:
Aspect Ratio (controls regular programming) = 4:3 letterbox
Output Type (controls High def programming) = experiment with 720P vs 1080i
4:3 overide (controls regular programming)= 480p.
I am also using the expensive $99 monster DVI cable to connect to the cable box. This is essential to make regular TV look great vs grainy. Get the DVI to M1 connections, wires and adaptors - you MUST budget this into your overall budget or the projecter will not be a great buy (see my "problem" section below).

2) X-Box. I purchased the Hi-Def cable/wire from Microsoft for $20. Once you buy the cables, you can go into the Xbox dashboard settings to allow for 720p and 1080i. Most games are in 480p and 16:9 format. The few Games in highdef look fantastic! You can check hdtvarcade.com to see the exact resolution of every game.

I did a lot of homework before buying this product (my first projector). If you've done the same, you'll know this is a great projector for home theatre use - with all the right features and a lot of bang for the buck. This is all true.

I sampled projectors with better/higher features and saw nothing worth twice the price. There is no doubt (unless money truly is NO OBJECT) that this is the projector to choose for home theatre.

ALL THAT BEING SAID, and having read and been warned by at least a dozen reviews (of the X1) which marginalized the ''rainbow effect'' I MUST SAY THAT THE RAINBOW EFFECT IS A INSURMOUNTABLE SORE POINT and my review will focus on exactly that. I don't know if any projectors exist in the world without this problem, but here it is in a more understandable form:

It seems that the picture is made of RGB images that alternate faster than the eye can notice (in other words, that there is a red image followed by a green image and then lastly a blue image - each a few dozen times per second). If you wave your hand infront of the projector very fast you can see the image break down on different fingers as different colors.

A similar effect manifests when your eye moves accross the screen very fast, or if a high-contrast, highly-bright image moves across the screen very fast. You will notice three objects instead of one (red, green and blue). For example, in a largely dark scene, a light bulb will seem to have three colors if you move your eyes fast around the screen. I suspect the scene with dueling light-savers in Star Wars to be the perfect example of a bad scene for the rainbow effect - it's mostly dark and has small bright features that move fast.

If you only want to use this projector to watch sports in HDTV, then I suspect you will be quite satisfied. In a dark room with HDTV it can be truly breathtaking!

Keep in mind that you will not get a good picture until you have eliminated almost all surrounding light. But, the "rainbow effect" makes watching movies almost painful. Whenever the movie has a bright light mixed with a dark background you will not see a white light, but a fast-moving rainbow. I have not seen this when watching sports.

Normal analog TV channels do not look very good on a projected screen like this. Even digital channels look grainy. But HDTV looks awesome! There is not really a "screen door effect" in HD to speak of. I get a huge 100" picture at about 14 feet away. At $700, I consider this projector to be a bargain.

Even though this projector seems to be ideal for HDTV sports, I am concerned about the ability to view future HDTV signals because this projector is not compliant with the HDCP stanard that may govern future HDTV broadcast. If that happens in the US, like it has in Europe, this projector would become worthless.

The noise level of this projector is higher than I expected, but once the sound is on you hardly notice.

I read the comment about the "rainbow effect", and decided to by the projector anyway, because it seemed like such a good deal, and I never noticed this artifact on any other projector. It definately has a beautiful picture, and makes watching movies a lot of fun, but about every twenty minutes when I blink or move my eyes there is a bright white imagine on the screen I notice a flashing stripe of red, blue and green on the borders of the white part of the image. It doesn't ruin the movie, but it is kind of distracting. Also, the fact that I can make this happen by moving my eyes quickly creates a distracting temptation. My girlfriend and roommate don't notice this at all (except when they intentionally move their eyes quickly around the screen). It's not a huge deal, but if I had to make the decision again, I would probably buy a different projector. I have never noticed this effect on other projectors, so I think there is something wrong with this one.
