    I thinks its European version of the XVC1e, I have seen the XVC1e running and the chicken wire effect is very obvious. Have a look at the XVC20e instead, much better picture for not much more money. If you find some cheap ones let me know! :)

    It's not the Euro version of the xvc-1e but a slightly older model.I still own an xv315 which is virtually the same model(the 320 just lacks secam compatability).I used my 315 for a couple of years and was quite happy with the picture (providing the picture was kept to less than 60 inches diagonal).It has about 320000 pixels(more than the xvc1e) and the picture is noticably sharper on ntsc sources.I must admit that the picture now looks awful compared to my Philips 4100 (1.4K pixels).I wouldn't pay more than £400 for one and as Gee says the xvc-20 is a much better projector.

    If you do buy one and it needs a clean,a company called T.P Maintenance in Manchester are very reasonable.Sharp gave me their number and they did a good job for little money (about £40 if I recall correctly)

    Hi Ashley

    I bought it in 1997, and have used it on average about once a week for films and footy. The bulb is still fine though it will probably need replacing soon.
    All people who have seen it are v impressed.
    It takes video (yellow) imput, & SVHS.
    Also switches automatically to NTSC, SECAM ,PAL.

    Any idea how much the bulb would cost to replace. Cash is limited.

    Hi Gee in terms of hours i really dont know
    just what i said in previous message.
    All i know is the bulb has not failed and the indicator to say it is coming to the end of its life has not appeared.
    No one has made an offer so if your interested let me know .

    Cheers Pete
