Summary: I didnt notice till I watched a horror movie, Blacks?
Pros: Great Color, Nice options for adjusting pretty much everything.(Keystone, the first time I used it, Made the edges all wavey and weird but that hasnt happened since.) Good throw. (About 120" Left to right from 15-17Ft.) Currently at 700 hours and going strong.
Cons: It can get loud, and if your next to it, it can warm you like a space heater. But I have it on my celing so nether bother me at all.
Summary: It's barely different from my older projector as far as brightness is concerned, but you can still see most of the detail in astronomy images with all the windows open in my living room. It's not like my DLP TV. I do like the HDMI input as it simplifies connecting to the projector from my laptop. Despite that it isn't as bright as I would like, this will still be my default projector for presentations.
Summary: I am going to ship the projector to Acer at my own expenses and I hope that they can fix it and do not charge me hundres of dollors.
Pros: Inexpensive for such a high resolution projector. Good video color (not too impressive though), but otherwise rather sharp video quality.
Cons: Somewhat loud noise from the fan from time to time (the fan speed various). But the biggest problem is that after 5 months of light use (less than 80 hours), the projector just went dead. Just a few seconds of fan sound after pushing the power button, then nothing... no light at all.
Pros: Great color, low noise fan, bright enough that I can watch with a room lamp on. My 100 inch diag. screen makes other TVs look tiny. Friends love it and tell me so.
Cons: Does turn off on it's own every few weeks while in use. Makes a beeping sound and is cold to the touch, attempting to turn back on gives more beeps but no lamp. Fix is to unplug the power cord before turning back on.
Summary: There was a small issue with the projector when it arrived, but a friend fixed it and I could never be happier. The projector provides an excellent picture and has many easy to use features. Well worth the money!
Summary: This was a replacement projector for our small home theatre in our basement. We dropped down from 4000 lumens to this 2100 lumens projector and the picture is still GREAT!! I picked this one over the previous 720p model since we wanted true HiDef. It is portable so it can also be used for travelling. It is mounted to our ceiling with a universal bracket. Our previous projector was much higher end that had many features we didn't use.
Summary: - Black levels typical of this class of projector (not a con, necessarily, but this projector does not stand out in its class for black levels)
Pros: - Price: At $700 after discount, it's a solid value.
Cons: - Fan can be annoying when dynamic black is enabled. DB causes the fan to spin up and down depending on the scene and thus you can never really tune out the fan noise. I turned off dynamic black for this reason.
Very economical 1080p projector with fantastic video reproduction
30 September 2012
Pros: Fantastic picture, widely adjustable brightness, great color reproduction, great black levels and good contrast, small form factor, lightweight, multiple HDMI inputs, and reliable with long lamp life. The projector is a great bargain for a 1080p projector. Using it on a 125” screen and it looks fantastic. Still bright, even in eco mode. No rainbow effect that I’ve been able to see and I have over 100 hours on the bulb and it’s still great. Tried MythTV from a PC, PS3,...
Cons: Plastic casing is small, meaning cooling is limited. The fan is audible if the receiver is put on mute, but I don’t find it noticeable or annoying when watching a movie or TV.
Summary: This is my second projector for my theatre room.the first I had for 5 years so I did a lot of research before purchasing. The picture quality is great especially in blue ray. Very crisp edges,the colors are fantastic and the blacks are good too. Plenty of lumens so the picture is very bright even with ambient lighting.I've been using it for a month now and I would definitely purchase this model again.
