Summary: For the price you just can't go wrong! I have been using this for almost two years now and have not had one problem with it. I run it in my basement on eco mode and the picture looks good even with some lighting on, it doesn't have to be pitch black in the room. I still have a lot of hours left on the ligt bulb. The fan noise isn't to bad at all either. I would recomend this to anyone looking for a projector.
Summary: I loved this projector until just 1 month out of warranty when the pixels started getting stuck. In the course of just 3 days 70% of the image is completely obscured by white or black pixels. It will cost nearly as much to repair as for a new projector, so it's going in the trash. Didn't even use 20% of the lamp life and it's already dead. It's a good projector when it's alive, but don't expect it to last.
Summary: people say u need an expensive projector to play xbox games but i bought this for about 450 and its been great. no lag on any of my xbox360 games. the image looks great without blurring on heavy games like black ops2 and skyrim,forza,borderlands,AC3 all look great. mines currently a 130in diag. 16:9 and its looks great. after playing games on this u wont be able to play on a 40 or 50in tv again. my bluray player looks great and so does the dvr.
Summary: I have had this projector since January 2012, have put about 110 hours on it so far. I am including the guide on how to run 3D from your computer onto this projector below. but first pros and cons. I bought it for 350 from staples canada (toronto) Pros: Great picture quality Great color reproduction All the standard features + hdmi (at 350 HDMI is pretty good).
Summary: product came in on time started up flawlessly! then it wouldn't come back on at all even waited a day to turn it on.. but some forums said just to blow it out with some pc air dusters now works excellent! THANKS!
Summary: Bought a factory refurbished MX511 about 2 weeks ago. It is very bright and works well even in a moderately lit room. I use it mostly for Xbox 360 and it looks great. I have it projecting a ~116" image and the quality is very good. Great projector with HDMI input. If the lamp lasts as long as advertised or even close this projector is a fantastic buy.
Summary: I say best bang for the buck but that it a little unfair as I have never owned a projector before nor have I compared this side by side to any other projector. Let me tell you of my experience so far. I purchased this projector about 2 weeks ago. I build an economical screen using seamless photographic backdrop paper as my material.
Summary: This is very good projector, great value for money. No issues so far have used it for a month. Product arrived on time well packaged and as expected. If you are not looking for a short throw projector then this is the one I think. Happy I bought this one after quite bit of research.
