Summary: I was looking for a reasonably portable projector with HDMI and VGA inputs that provided enough brightness (no less than 2000 Lumens) for a professional presentation. Have had this projector now for a few months and love it. I have traveled with it several times and do frequent presentations and have been very satisfied. Note that it does take a few minutes to come up to full brightness.
Summary: I have had this projector for almost two years. No overheating problems, no shutdowns. It does great with HDMI sources and HD content. It requires a bit of finagling to get the best quality, but once you understand the difference between the settings and what the dominant colors the content your watching has.. everything will be fine. Mine is a little loud has a slight whine, but when the stereo is up you can't hear it. Possibly swap for a quieter fan in the future.
Summary: I use this in a school setting. It stinks. The picture is fine, but t overheats and shuts down constantly - even in a cool room with plenty of air flow. It's just undercooled. C'mon folks, the fan can't be that big a deal.
Bigger is better.HDMI is what sold me, well worth it.

Summary: I bought this projector for the HDMI. I connected my cable box to the projector using the HDMI and I couldn't believe the supereb picture quality I was getting 100" inches in HD. Love to watch movies sports or pretty much anything thats HD. If this projector last me two years I'll be completely satisfed. Well worth the money.
