Summary: Thanks for such awesome service and an equally awesome product however it didn't arrive the day it was told to us it would but its ok with that since it turned out to be such a great picture on our movie screen.
Summary: I am pleased with this projector. It is compatible with the SVGA video in my laptop and compatible with every other flavor of VGA that is made. It is very bright, and it had a focus control that makes it possible to create a sharp, focused presentation. I recommend this to my friends.
Summary: Not wide screen format, so if you are using a 16:9 display or watching a wide screen video, you lose some screen real state. That said, it is one of the lowest cost projectors on the market, has all the connections you could need, is very bright, much brighter than the advertised 2800lumens as NEC ships it with the default 2800 enabled but you can use the menu to change it to performance mode which is even brighter. Enough for a fully lit room with ambient lighting.
Pros: Reasonable price, replacement lamps affordable, good history of reliability, and easy to use.
Cons: Most brands of DLP projectors, including NEC, will fail within 5 years due to the "star field effect". This failure has nothing to do with the lamp assembly and is too expensive to repair, so just buy another new projector. For $300, the cost isn't so bad.
