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.
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.
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.
Summary: I have had this projector for well over a year now. It is absolutely wonderful! I use it for movies occasionally, but it's primary function is to be dragged all over town for people to play Halo on. It may visit 3 or 4 different places on a weekend (360 over one shoulder, projector over the other!
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.
Summary: I bought this last November. Since then, I've watched a wide variety of movies on it. Everything from B&W oldies to the latest films. The effect is incredible. It's like owning your own movie theater. I'm surprised more people aren't using these things instead of buying big-screen TVs.
Summary: I've had mine for over a year now, and have even given one as a gift. The only thing wrong with the whole product is that abysmal instruction book. The whole writing team must have been on a bender when they cobbled that thing together. Luckily you hardly need it.
Summary: I'm a soldier in Iraq and I am living in a 13" x 14" trailer room. Since its nearly impossible to get a television out here larger than 21', I ordered this little baby. It throws a pretty nice picture across to the other wall where I put up the Optomo 84' white matte screen that I bought.
