Works great 99% of the time

Kyle S., Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Summary: There is some fan noise when it warms up. It doesn't bother me and I rarely even notice it, but for major cine/audiophiles it may be too much, but you're not gonna find better in a sub-$1000 projector.
  • Pros: I have this set up in a home theater set up. All video is through the HDMI port from a Pioneer VSX-1022 receiver. The picture is great, and plays with almost no trouble (*see cons) The room has two large picture windows on the East side of the house which we put blinds over. The projector is brig...
  • Cons: The only con I've had is that occasionally, maybe once a month, the projector will shut off the video and run the fan like it's overheating, though it doesn't seem that hot, and the conditions haven't changed. Shutting it off and letting it sit for a minute or just pulling the power will bring it...

Bright? Not as bright as I would like.

J. Carter, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • 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.

Impress your friends!

Joseph D., Newegg
7 February 2013
  • Summary: I had a new years eve and a superbowl party. Both my family and friends are very impressed with the 90" screen I am able to get with a 10' throw distance. Very little "rainbow" effect due to only 1 dlp processor but its hardly noticeable unless your a projector snob.
  • Pros: This projector looks fantastic with my bluray and directTV box. supports 1080i/p. very bright projection, allows for watching during the daytime as long as the light is indirect.
  • Cons: No built in audio, not a biggie i hooked my cable box and bluray up to a 2.1 speaker set i had laying around. I had to purchase a digial audio to analog converter because I do not have a surround sound system with a receiver. The lens does not pivot it is fixed so you will have to place it on som...

Get lots of compliments

Dustin W., Newegg
21 January 2013
  • Summary: This is my second Acer projector, first one started getting dead pixels shortly after the 1 year warranty expired. Purchased the extended warranty on this one.
  • 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.

Great Picture and Easy Setup

Fred J. Aebli, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • 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.

Decent entry level 1080p

Jonathan O., Newegg
27 November 2012
  • Summary: Happy with the purchase overall. I hope the Rainbows go away some after more break in but I can live with them. Great image pop. Fills a 100-inch screen nicely.
  • Pros: - Price: At $700 after discount, it's a solid value. - Very bright. Picture is still excellent with a 60 watt bulb on in the room, or a shade or two open during the day. Really great for sports or when you don't want that "cave" feeling when friends are over. Conversely, in a fully dark room you ...
  • 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. - Black levels typical of this class of projector (not a con, necessarily, but this p...

Nice picture, loud fan

Daniel L., Newegg
30 April 2012
  • Summary: If you're going for a low-priced projector with good contrast and brightness for a home theater and fan noise & lack of speakers/audio out aren't a problem, this is definitely a very good option. However, if you are looking for something portable, the lack of audio really kills its usefulness there.
  • Pros: This projector was purchased to use in a walk-out basement with a 12 foot wide glass sliding door that had direct afternoon sunlight shining in. Despite this, it was plenty bright enough to see the image on the wall opposite said door. The "eco" mode was a bit too dim, which I expected, but when ...
  • Cons: The small size has a downside - the fan is a bit louder than others in this price range & it has a pitch that I found annoying. This could be a problem if mounting it close to the sitting area. The so-called "10,000:1" contrast ratio is accomplished by brightening/darkening the image according to...

  • Summary: Personal Experience So I am doing a home theater in my new house, and I saw that this projector had just been released at a great price on Newegg & seemed to favor well compared to other projectors in the same price range, so I went for it.

automatische Kanalsuche fehlt; Farbeinstellung

Viktoria Breinsberger, Amazon
