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'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. Although I don't have enough room to get the largest size screen this thing can throw, I get about 60' on the wall and the picture is pretty darned good with the screen.
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: I've never bought a projector before. I finally decided to "take the plunge" and buy either a nice TV or a projector. For a variety of reasons, I liked the idea of a projector better, so I did my research. The Optoma DV10 caught my eye, as it seemed like a great projector for a neophyte in home theater at a very good price. Researching and reading reviews of the projectors in the same general price range convinced me that the DV10 was the way to go.
Summary: This Optoma beats out all the other "all in one" projectors handily in all of the online reviews. After purchasing it I can see why. The picture is fantastic. If your main use for this projector will be standard definition DVDs then it's a great buy. It is priced similarly to low end 720P high definition projectors though, so do your research. That said this is one nice projector. The image is great and the speakers are OK.
Excellent self-contained DLP projector for a small room

Summary: This projector works as advertised. The incorporated DVD player and sound system make it easy to watch widescreen movies without running cables all over the place, and it comes with a cloth carrying case so you can take it to a friend's. Ours sits on the floor under the coffee table about 80" from the screen.
Summary: I bought this projector several months ago, so I've had a chance to get used to it and can share all that with other Amazon customers. The Good: If you don't know much or anything about home theater, and you don't want to learn about what 1080i, 720p, 480p and all the other techno mumbo-jumbo means, you can hardly go by buying this product. Out of the box, the unit seemed pretty darn good.
Summary: I stumbled on this projector while doing other shopping and decided to give it a try given all the great reviews - I could not have been more pleased - I am projecting a 125" image on a textured white wall and while it helps to do so in a darkened room, it is a gorgeous picture. The only negative is the "screen door" effect if you get up close but I suspect that is a common problem with all DLP projectors. At 12'-15' you cannot see this.
