Summary: I teach a number of classes every month, most of which include a PowerPoint or other A/V component. They last anywhere from an hour to eight hours. I bought this as a backup to an Epson PowerLite S1 that I've had for about five years and have been very pleased with, but instead I have made it my primary projector because it is brighter (1600 vs. 1200 lumens), projects a clearer image, is lighter (5.6 lbs vs.
Summary: does well in day or night I was surprised how well it can be used with light on and bulbs are not too outrageous use it daily worked for moths now without a hitch I bought mine used and had to replace bulb but glad I did the old one had dust on it and the new one was easy to change
Summary: This is a very good projector, considering its age (it is an old model at this point, according to Amazon it came out in 2005). I used it primarily for business presentations, for which it works great. More recently, I have been using it to stream Netflix and DVD movies on our wall at home. Although I don't believe this was designed as a movie watching projector, it actually works pretty well for that! At night, the image is more than satisfactory for movie watching.
Summary: This is STILL a great projector! Vivid colors. And PLENTY bright. We use in normal lit room on low setting. On just a board painted white, 80" diagonal. Of course it does so much bigger very well. Yes their is some screen door effect but, hardly noticeable and is not annoying. Forget the specs. You'll be hard pressed to find a negative review of this item on the internet. If you can get one for around $200, you've got a great projector.
