Summary: I got this projector for doing a slideshow at my wedding, and it was plenty bright to do the trick. (Bright room, 10' picture). I now use it for a home theater projector, and it is OK at that. It doesn't have HDMI, only analog inputs, and VGA. The picture it produces is super bright and vibrant, but at closer viewing distances, the screen door effect is apparent. So, is it a great projector? No, not really. Is it an adequate projector? Yah.
Summary: bought this for $349 from Amazon. now its around 380. though the resolution is 1024*768, pls dont expect a really high quality projection image. but for movies, it's good. (but only standard resolution movies, not HDs) the thing i really dont like is the plastic smell when you first turn on this projector. the smell is very strong. but noise level is ok.
