Summary: For the price and weight and convenience I do like it . If the resolution was 1200 x 1600 it would have been perfect but I was aware that XGA projectors do not have that high native resolution. I am a college student on a budget and do recommended the product. However, it you have extra 200 bucks do go for a higher resolution product so that you can truly appreciate HD content.
Summary: I was looking for a projector and this is a good one for it's price. I was hoping for a short-throw projector, but this is not. I wanted to project an image about 30" by 40" from about 4 feet away, but this needs closer to 7' for that size. The image however is clear and crisp and very bright even in a lightly lite room.
Excerpt: at first i used the component input for video playback. The quality was horrible dark scenes seem to blend together, the bright scenes looked ok. I could not adjust color. Tried adjusting brightness and contrast which did not help much. I was going to return it til i tried the same video on HDMI what a difference it made the colors and shadows were spot on dark and bright scenes looked wonderful. the projector is pretty bright does great in a well lit room.
