Summary: Haven't used this much yet but so far I've been super impressed that you can see the image quite well without blacking out the room. It works well with an HDMI chord purchased separately to connect to a macbook pro.
Summary: I had been hunting around for an affordable projector to show movies in the backyard during the summer. I read a bunch of reviews and this seemed to fit the bill. I was looking for decent resolution, but not 1080. I was most concerned about lumens since this would be for outside and not in a controlled theater room. At 2,500 lumens this was on the low end of the projectors I was looking at. I purchased the projector from another website as an "open box".
Summary: This Acer projector is a great home projector for the price. At under $500 there is nothing that compares. The only problem is I need a more portable system. This isn't a stand alone projector. While it projected an excellent picture. The fan noise, which isn't that loud, made it difficult to heard the movie sound track via the built in speakers.
Summary: I was using Epson EX-71 earlier and when the time for change came, I checked various models in economoy range and settled for Acer H5370BD. I am very happy with the purchase. Pros 1) Price - Real VFM 2) Color - Very Vibrant 3) Black - As stated by many in their reviews, black is black with this PJ Cons 1) Screen size for the same distance is lesser comparing to my earlier PJ Epson EX71 2) HDMI handsake is not as smooth as my earlier PJ.
Summary: I think this is the best starting point for someone who wants to experience big screen HD + 3D viewing at fraction of a cost. The setup was a breeze and the out of the box images were really good. I would say the 3D is okay, since I was expecting more pop out effects. Could be related to SBS 3D movies, yet to try 3D Blu Ray. So a point less there. Even the fan noise isnt really a distraction when placing the projector on a table.
3D is sweeeeeet, and can't find better quality/price ratio

Summary: This projector was in my wish/watch list in several online shopping websites and I jumped on it when the price dropped to $400. I chose it over its competitor the BenQ W770ST (Short Throw model , $530 at the time of this review) because of its 3D multi-format support and its 2D to 3D feature. I really wanted a short throw, but I wanted the 3D features even more.
Summary: I recommend this product because it does what is supposed to do. Pros: Nice color. Nice distance/size of screen. Excellent brightness The cons: - There is no lens cap/cover. - The bag isn't so good. - The Epson design is better.
Summary: Good: - starts up easy - brightness and image quality are very good - terrific auto-squaring function (to compensate for fore-and-aft tilt) Not as good: - fan is kinda loud - hot spots blow out too often Its not perfect but for the price, hard to complain.
HD & 3D for under $500, a little dim and low quality speaker.

Summary: I was looking for an hd 3d projector but I didn't want to break the bank. I have owned a handful of projectors of varying quality. This model was about as sharp as my 8 year old Eiki, but cost 1/3 of the price. Before I purchased the Acer, I knew the speaker would be poor quality but that's what my surround sound is for, right? Of all the projectors ive used this was one of the easier ones to set up/operate.
Summary: I purchased this on based on it's reviews compared to similar priced projectors. I loved everything about it except the unavoidable rainbow effect and no audio out. I should of done more research on the DLP, LCD, and LED differences. I love how my PS3 games look on it, but not my bluray movies. The rainbow effect bothered me a lot more in the beginning but I've slowly forced myself to deal with it. you can really see i in dark scenes, but not so much on lighted ones.
