if your source is HD it looks amazing. Colors are bright and the dark's are good ...

Summary: Had this for just over a year. Works strong and has changed our movie viewing experience forever. We went from a 32" SD TV to a 50" Plasma and thought we were living it up. Now we have a 140" Projector and it's all we use. Day time, night time, evening time, it is literally all we use. The plasma got moved to the kitchen for use as a computer monitor lol.
Summary: I have had this for over a year now and this is exactly what I wanted for the Man Cave. We use it primarily for gaming and occasionally for watching movies. I have it connected to the PS3 and there is a vast improvement in picture clarity compared to my old InFocus projector (which I still use sometimes). My sons tell me that it vastly improved their online gameplay in the Call of Duty games. I can see a difference in things like Uncharted, Need for Speed and Tombraider.
Summary: Our bonus room over the three car garage is our theater room. Don't have the headroom for ceiling mount projector. Had a rear projector, which put the screen in the middle of the 15' x 30' room! This short throw allows the screen to be against the back wall. The projector sits on a small end table 5 feet in front of our 7 foot screen. Much easier to work around a small table 5 feet away from the back wall than lose 225 sq feet of space!
Summary: This is amazing! The picture is definitely HD, and the short throw helps a lot when you don't have much space between your projector and the screen. I use this as a rear projector on an 8' wide screen to run karaoke in a bar, and I only need about 4' behind the screen in order for this thing to fill the entire screen.
Summary: I have owned this for about six months now and it is wonderful. my direct tv on it looks better than my 1080p hdtv sony bravia. it has to be the right lighting in the room obviously the darker the room the better but it still looks graet even with some light in the room. there is no noise from this machine, the speaker sucks but anyone setting up a legit theater in the home uses a different form of sound output.
Summary: Personal Experience I'm always amazed on how good a giant 720p picture looks on my wall I've got it one year now, zero problems Can't believe most people went for the Optoma GT750 that has a poorer image (3000:1 contrast) instead of this one!!!
Excellent Projector For The Money. Short Throw Makes Set Up Very Easy

Summary: I've had this projector for about six months and I'm still blown away by the video quality you can get for $550.00 (my purchase price). It's 720p, but the picture quality is excellent even on a large screen (I have an Elite Screens 150" mounted outside underneath an awning). Some have mentioned digital noise - it's there mostly with clouds, and I've noticed the blues can be over-saturated, but it doesn't come up much.
