A great buy

  • Excerpt: This is another projector I bought for our group. The other projector was a HD one. For the price, this has as many features as my other projector, except the wide screen capability. We use the projectors for PPT presentations, and it was more than adequate. Did not even read the instructions or watch the DVD that came with it, just took it out of the box, and the set up was complete within minutes.

Good Reliable Projector So Far

  • Excerpt: This projector is quite good. I have it linked up to my xbox and laptop and use it for more than 6 hours atraight but it hasn't given me any trouble so far(almost 300 hundred hours). The only trouble i'm having is to hook up my xbox which is hdmi to the projector which is analog, it either doesn't accept an hd signal through component or the xbox doesnt transmit it that way. Ordered a hdmi to vga wire so will see if that works.

  • Excerpt: I'm using this for video projection in a small dark space, and it's been great so far. I've yet to dig deep into the settings, but there hasn't been much need yet. A little disappointed there's no dvi or HDMI connections, and the resolution leaves something to be desired, but overall I'm very pleased.

  • Excerpt: I bought this projector about a month ago and I must say, It is amazing! For the price it has outstanding contrast and color. The color reproduction is better than my plasma TV. It is not bright in a high light room but you can still see it. I use it for TV, Presentations, and Reviewing videos by my company.
  • Pros: Clear Display, DLP, Easy To Use, Quiet, Small Footprint
  • Cons: Light Level

Great little projector

  • Excerpt: Pros: * I just got this and have run a few movies on it. The picture quality is sharp. * 180-Day or 500-Hour Lamp Warranty - wish this was better, but it's way better than a lot of the others, i.e. they're not willing to back their own product * Nice design * focus/zoom adjust is easy to use Annoyances: * Bulb seems to burn a little too hot for plastic, but not a problem so far.

Projectors for everybody

  • Excerpt: This is a great projector for the money. Very bright intro-level DLP with very few minor downsides for the average user. I use it mainly for movies and for tracing scanned images onto large surfaces. Haven't noticed any significant rainbow effect. The build quality and noise level are not the best, but perfectly acceptable for something in this price range. Performs well even with ambient light - good contrast, fair detail in the blacks.
  • Pros: Bright, DLP, Fair resolution, Good Value
  • Cons: A bit plasticky, No HDMI

Bright, clear images

Shenanigans, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this projector primarily as an occasoinal video projector - for big sports games, movie nights etc. Setup was a snap, and the picture is nice bright, very clear and sharp. Colours are nicely saturated, without looking artificial, and there is good scope for customising the picture. About the only negative I can say is that the build quality seems a little "cheap" - the focus and zoom rings don't work particularly smoothly.
  • Pros: Clear Display, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

  • Summary: Personal Experience Bought this projector after reviews at multiple site. Price was very low, so I had doubt whether it will be upto mark or not. But it is really a good one. No compromise with quality. Image is too clear, if your source is good.
