Summary: Wonderful projector, 1080p, 3000 lumen, nice colors. For presentations it is great. Besides the image quality it is fairly small and easy to use. Even for movies, but obviously not better than a home theater projector.
Summary: My only regret is that I didn't wait to get a 3d projector, but for 2d, this produces a very bright, crisp image that easily fills a 200 ft screen. Some subtle colors and gradients come across as a bit harsh and not very smooth, so this isn't movie-theater quality, but it's darn near close enough for home projection. I use this to project from a home built PC with full Blu-Ray capacity, and have never used it with any other media devices.
Summary: Personal Experience I use two of these daily for engineering use. Pros: This projector is cheap, very quiet and of course has a nice resolution. Nice picture. It makes a nice wide picture but limited zoom range. Cons: The focus adjust is extremely picky, and it "goes out of focus" by itself, just left in the wall-mount on both projectors, so you'll need to readjust focus every few days. I don't know if this is due to the temperature variations.
Summary: I am very picky when it comes to projectors, since I have a media room in my house that is 25'x35' for many years. I bought this projector for use at my company where we produce modeling, simulation, and analysis solutions. The resolution must be very clean and lines show up well even in bright lights at trade shows. Of all the projectors I have seen used at trade shows, this by far has the best visualization.
Summary: Personal Experience I read the review here so I had to post. I guess they are saying it's too bright for a home theater projector? I run it on economy mode to get 4000 lamp hours and you can always adjust brightness down if you have enough, too little is a real problem. I use a theater grey screen and get deep blacks and night scenes look great compared to the 1100 lume projectors. 1080P is crisp as can be in a totally light controlled room 120" screen.
Summary: I was somewhat hesitant to purchase after reading some reviews about not being able to obtain 1080P resolution with video media. Found this not to be the cse if you use the HDMI input. So far I have used the Optoma EH1020 for office presentations, off site business meeting, home big screen and at reunions. This product continues to outshine the rest. Great size and optics.
Summary: Native 1080P looks fantastic with my bluray player. Brightness is fantastic, if you turn it up you can just about use this in daylight. Most native 1080P projectors suffer from low lums but with 3000 lums this is one of the brightest in it's catagory. Manufacturer's like to sell the high contrast ratios which you trade for lums in many cases but having the extra light is a huge plus in my book. I would buy this again in a second.
Summary: This projector has excellent image quality, but very poor color wheel speed which makes video display very jumpy and extremely undesirable. The lack of ability to play motion video negates the excellent image quality of this projector and effectively makes it useless for any type of home theatre display. I only recommend for business/professional use, but even then, the cost is very high for something only to be used for portable display of powerpoint.
Summary: I purchased this for a moderately size conference for both power point type presentations, and DVD presentations, and we also have cable TV analog and digital hooked up to it via HDMI. We also have ambient light in the room, so I was a bit concerned about the brightness. What I can say is: - I am really pleased with the brightness of the projector. I can see any image with the lights on and shades open and it is still about on halfway brightness setting.
