Very Reliable, Great Picture, Quiet, Affordable, and a Beautiful Design
3 August 2012
Summary: This is a reliable and affordable (purchased used) home theatre projector. It has great picture quality, runs quietly and is very versatile. The keystone controls are great and allow for placements other than directly in front of your screen. I have owned this projector for almost 2 years and never had a problem. We replaced the first lamp at 2200hrs but that bulb still had life. Replacement bulb was found on eBay for just over $100.
Summary: I use this for watching movies, playing games and my PC. The ultra blacks make everything pop. Easy 5 stars to give! I did a ton of research before I bought mine, but universal praise made it an easy yes in my book.
Summary: An awesome projector for any price,but you can pick one of these up for a reasonable price. Its bright with vivid color and great contrast.There are newer and supposedly better projectors out there but why spend the extra just to have the latest model.All that really matters is the picture ! As soon as my son saw the picture he said that looks just like the tv, good enough for me.
Summary: This replaced an older Dell DLP 1024x768 unit. In addition to upgrading to 1080p, we no longer have to deal with the rainbow effect or loosing the detail of darker scenes. It is also quieter than the older unit, which was fairly quiet to begin with. The unit is a bit bigger than I had expected, but its white like the ceiling, so it stands out no more than the older gray unit.
Summary: I bought this projector to replace a HD projector from Optima that never worked properly. Optima customer support and product quality set a new low, so I decided to try Epson's projector instead. I bought it in Jan 2009. The first EPSON projector failed in under a year. It's a complicated product and I understand that things can fail.
Summary: Personal Experience Absolutely Stunning Blu-ray quality.... I have the front lens of the projector 16' ft from the 106" diagonal screen which I believe has a 1.3 gain. The projector is mounted at the same height as the top of the screen therefore obviously projecting downward and the lens perfectly compensates for the downward angle. One of the main reasons for selecting the projector was its variable throw distance of 10ft to 22ft in order to project 106" image.
