    Sorry, but I think the HS10 was notorious for having a loud fan and I don't think there's much you can do about it.

    Its successor, the HS20 ran a fair bit quieter but even that by modern standards is fairly noisy.
    The primary reason for me upgrading to the HS50 was because of the reduced fan noise.

    I think the HS10 ran at about 33db, the HS20 about 28db, and the HS50 around 24db.
    :lesson: My physics tellls me (and I could be wrong here) that the volume doubles with each increment of 3db.

    Therefore the HS10 is about 8 times louder than an HS50 :eek:

    This is what I did with mine. It's a bit drastic I know but there is no way I could have that tornado in the same room. I also had a fan blowing at the front of the pj as it is front vented. The fan was on a shelf beside the projector

    See this thread about half way down.

    For some reason the forum will not allow me to attach the same pictures again :confused:
