Sweet

Timmothy L., Newegg
16 November 2010
  • Summary: I made my screen out of 3 layers of white felt and a frame built from wood. I couldn't see spending a bunch of money on a screen. I know a guy that has one and the picture looks better on the wall. The rules say I cant say anything about adult programming being awesome on this huge screen...
  • Pros: Best bang for your buck. I would recommend this over any TV. I'm not big into paying for "hd" service from the cable company so i'm not worried about getting 1080i. If you want to spend 4 times as much to get slightly better quality, I'd go with something else. My screen is sooooo huge , and in a...
  • Cons: The manual isn't descriptive. Lense had a spot on it (glue or something) so I had to get a professional lense cleaner for about $11.99 at BB.

Good Value

Reginald S., Newegg
28 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this for 3D Vision Stereo big screen gaming. Little to no ghosting in all my tests. Pleasantly small and quiet. Very nice visual quality (I have worked with 6 other projectors and this is by far the best value).
  • Pros: + Good value. + High quality picture. + Image sync is fairly quick. + Small and light. + Fan is quiet. + Supports DLP-Link (more options for 3D in the future). + 3D Vision mode AND DLP 3D with L/R Reversal selections in the Projector Menu.
  • Cons: - No HDMI in (so you may need to 'convert' from DVI-VGA-image quality is still excellent for the price). - I found my 25' VGA cable did not permit 3D Vision detection (switched to the VGA cable it came with resulted in display detection by windows 7 and 3D Vision detection). This may be a signal ...

Amazing Projector

James R., Newegg
26 October 2010
  • Summary: As someone stated in another review, with 3-day shipping, I got it in 1 day. Keep up the good work Newegg!
  • Pros: Very bright, and great picture. I am very happy with this purchase.
  • Cons: It's a little awkward to set up with Nvidia 3d Vision because of cable limitations, and no DVI or HDMI inputs, but nothing disastrous.

Solid

Nathaniel A., Newegg
20 September 2010
  • Summary: Good lord Newegg, I ordered this Thursday morning and it was here by Friday on 3-day shipping! You always make me happy.
  • Pros: Using as a living room Playstation/movie/laptop hookup in the evenings -- the projector is perfect for this, assuming you have a stereo to plug audio into.
  • Cons: No HDMI input, but then again this isn't a "Home Theater" projector (it's also 1/3 the cost). Slight fan noise when you're sitting close to it, but no biggie if you've got sound on.

Great projector

Anonymous, Newegg
12 September 2010
  • Summary: none
  • Pros: This is a replacement for a projector I bought 2 years ago. It is about half the size of the other one. It seems brighter than the other one and much clearer. I also use this as a monitor for my computer so it is excellent for reading and other online things. The bulb is a lot less wattage than m...

Great value

Jonathan B., Newegg
15 August 2010
  • Summary: Toying with getting 2 more of these for an amazing 3d-vision surround setup. Pretty much ideal for 3d-vision surround, as the narrow aspect ratio makes the screen a bit more normal when 3 are used side by side (4:1 AR, whereas 16x9 displays will have a 5.3:1 AR.
  • Pros: Great for 3d Vision, and supports DLP-Link (though I have not used the latter.) Quite bright, on my 60" temporary screen I can keep it in eco mode when using 3d-vision (which reduces the effective brightness significantly.) Zero ghosting in 3d.
  • Cons: No Harmony remote profile, the eco mode code from the x1260 won't work on this, have to go into the menu to change it. Low resolution. 4x3 aspect ratio means cinema aspect ratio movies (2.35:1,) only use a bit more than half the screen.

GREAT FOR THE MONEY!

Chris N., Newegg
9 August 2010
  • Summary: I believe that the 2500lumens may be slightly exagerrated but none the less it works great for the money I would buy again!
  • Pros: Very bright! I am using it for my xbox360,cpu and as a tv in my media room. It will also be used for outdoor parties, and football games! It works good with lights on, the room it is currently in is 18x22 with 4 4ft fluorescent lights and even with the lights on you can still see what is on the s...
  • Cons: takes a little while to shutdown, and doesn't come with any printed manuals, it is all on cd
