Excerpt: Acer X1160PZ: our beloved and most reliable multimedia projector in the house. It is the only one we have, and will ever have. It had made things so incredibly great for us, had helped entertain us to a different level, and we truly appreciate having it.
Ok second hand purchase. Not even close to buying the same product new.

Summary: Fit description, works, unfortunately failed to mention or did not know that this item is sold new with a remote control that was not present with this product, and is the only way to access most fine tuning features on this device, like where the image is pointing. As you can imagine, it gets a little annoying shoving books under it to get the image at the right elevation. Good product, but sadly I can't really say I'm satisfied.
Summary: well i bought this product not from amazon but from pc world. but i needed to post a review on amazon. normally i dont take time out to write these, however i found in this case, it was most necessary. this projector is FANTASTIC. the imagine quality is outstanding. it is perfect for watching tv on, or movies etc, the colours are vibrant and clear. people may argue that this project is native to 800x600.. well so what?
Summary: Having read other reviews I decided to buy this projector. Its great value and worked straight out of the box. I found he remote zoom and pan facility very useful for selecting details when showing maps. The focus is manual but only needs doing once so I do not see it as a problem. A good bright picture and its very light to carry if you need to take it to different venues.
Summary: - But it is. Often had trouble syncing my wide-screen Dell Latitude with other projectors, but not this one, picture bright and detailed, long throw, simple controls, why do other projectors cost so much more? Use with a Kensington Si600 Wireless Presenter with Laser Pointer - Presentation remote and you have the perfect budget presentation set up.
Summary: Bought this projector primarily to set up a home cinema in the spare room. I have it connected to my Sony DAV-DZ260 - 5.1 ch - DVD Home Cinema System - Black which has HDMI output. At the DSub input on the projector, I have connected a HDfury 1080P HDMI to VGA Converter Transcoder and can now link the DVD player and Projector with a HDMI to DVI-D lead which gives me full 720 x 1080 HD picture display. Far superior to using a SCART converter.
