Summary: We purchased this projector three years ago for our basement theater room. Was ok as a beginner projector, but not great. We bought an extended warranty plan for three years and about two weeks after the warranty ran out started having problems with it turning on.
Summary: I purchased my Epson Powerlite Home 10+ about a year ago at Costco, and it came with a free giant sized projection screen. The screen is a must if you want good quality images - projecting the image onto a regular wall just does not do justice to the picture. Set up was easy.
Summary: I've owned and run this for about two years. It works fine in my basement "Home theatre." I project on to a wall that is painted with a custom color - paint recipe from the Internet. I have it showing about a 100" image in 4:3 format. It's been very trouble free.
Summary: Personal Experience I have never owned a Projector before so I really have nothing to compare it too but I have done my research on line about all the types of projectors out there and I thought I would try this one, Well I have been Really impressed ever sense I have set it up.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought this for movies and xbox 360 as well. Throw a 77" image from bout 8.5ft. I kept image smaller because I sit so close and didnt want to be bothered by screendoor effect. Projector has great iq on theater settings - tolerable on living room but horrid on "Dynamic".
Summary: Personal Experience Great Value, great image, 120 inches from 15 feet away, barely any screen door, I seen this as low as $799 canadian. Bulbs are inexpensive. use for xbox 360, bell ev hdtv, and dvd. Problems remote is too small, minor problem
Summary: Personal Experience Just love my new porjector was looking to buy something to make movies look like i'm going to to see them at the show. I went from a JVC 56 in. HDTV With DVI input to my new Epson powerlite 10+ great picture lot of bang for the buck $700 w/screen. dont see a whole lot of change.
Summary: Personal Experience Deciding to buy a projector or a big screen tv. Hands down this was the best choice. I absolutely love this projector. I have seen some for upwards of twice the price and it can compete with the best of them any where near this price range.
Summary: Personal Experience Great projector for the money. As everyone states in other comments, a larger remote would be nice. As long as you only use the component or computer input you won't be disappointed.
