Awesome small compact home theater in one package.
14 August 2011
Summary: Best projector for the money hands down. There is only one downside that we have noticed is that you have to place it low to project onto a screen on a garage or other walls etc. Very bright and well built.
Summary: I especially like the value, the extremely cheap bulbs and ease in changing a bulb as the spare in self-containeed, the ease in set up and operation. I use the long life bulbs and have had only one burn out. I use a S-video cable attached to my laptop and give lectures somewhat regularly and the only drawback I see is the noise of the cooling fan in a quiet room and the clarity of a long focal distance.
Best Home Projector, the Optoma Movie Time is great!
6 September 2009
Summary: I love the Optoma DV10 Movie Time projector! I now own 2, one for a backup and to take on the road. I bought my first one in Nov 2006 during the Black Friday sale at Circuit City, and got the free subwoofer and free Optoma screen and they are a perfect combo! I use this as my TV and believe me! watching everyday TV on a 6ft screen is great! Movies come alive, it's like having your own personal theater in your living room!
Summary: It's easy to use and has good projection. I'd buy this again and again. If you want a huge conference center you'd have to add the subwoofer but in a classroom atmosphere the internal speaker is just fine.
Summary: I LOVE this projector! this is my 2nd purchase to have one as a spare. I had to send my unit in last year for servicing and not even a 54" Plasma TV would do after watching this 6 foot screen! This unit is easy to operate and has the DVD player on top, which I like MUCH better than the newer model DV11 which the player is in the back and since my player is mounted on the wall behind my sofa, we would not be able to get a dvd in and out, what were they thinking?
Summary: Personal Experience In my line of work, I get to play with many different types of projectors. I'm a big fan of Optoma and I had an opportunity to buy this dirt cheap. This is a great budget projector for movie night. Generally, I hook my DVD player to it via S-Video and use my in wall Tannoys for audio. I like the idea portability and I've used the built in DVD and speakers a couple times to "baby sit" the kids when I had to take them with me to work on the weekends.
Summary: Personal Experience Very nice picture clarity, however you need a very dark room. It says HDTV on the front of the unit and on the box but there isnt an HDMI input or a component input, nor does it play hi def dvd format so the only way to get true digital is thru the on board player, but still, its not Hi Def. Bit of a misleading claim. NOTE: This rebuttal from another user - Projector is certainly hd-compatible using the included rca-to-VGA adaptor.
Summary: Personal Experience Purchased new a year or so ago and the bulb is at 335 hours. Still functions perfectly. I can't even justify upgrading to the now-so-stinking-affordable 720p projectors since this machine performs so well. Hi def DVDs from my Xbox 360 look fantastic. (I cannot even imagine a full 1080p image, being 5 times higher res and all.) For the price and functionality and performance, this is a terrific buy.
Summary: Personal Experience I have setup the projector to currently throw the image on a makeshift window screen. I am waiting for the real projector screen to arrive. Connected the Audio output using a 35 feet Toslink to my receiver. Since the audio stream bandwidth is low, the audio performance is pretty impressive. Coming to picture quality and performance. It is nothing short but stellar.
