Summary: Great compact system - has a built in DVD player and speakers! Can run a little warm sometimes but not a big issue. A good product for movie nights that'll reduce the amount of stuff you'd have to bring - IE a separate DVD player and speakers...
Awesome small compact home theater in one package.

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 bought this projector about three years ago and I got it shipped to me while in Iraq, we watched movies on it constantly and took it with me to a couple of places. I now have it currently with me in Afghanistan and the projector still works like it first did straight out of the box. Obviously some scratches here and there, and i haven't had to replace the lamp once yet. Being my first projector i think it was a great buy and i couldn't ask for anything better.
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.
Summary: The unit is very finicky. It plays OK the DVDs, but has hard time detecting the connection to the computer. It breaks down, I had to send for replacement 2 times. Now it is out of warranty and it broke down again. The want me to pay $110 just to look at it. They charge $100/hour for their labor and parts are not cheap (e.g. lamp cost over $300). My recommendation: Stay away from Optoma. I think a big screen TV / monitor, is much better.
Best Home Projector, the Optoma Movie Time is great!

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: I bought the Optoma DV10 more than 2 years ago. I have watched several movies, linked my TV to the projector to watch shows on the screen and what an amazing device. This is one big reason why I am still happy with my 20" TV and did not feel the need to go for a larger LCD/Plasma TV. Quite convinient and quite easy to get started. I've even taken this to my friends place just like I would carry a laptop, and played it on their wall.
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.
