Excerpt: We have lunch time meetings in a country club ballroom with lots of light even with the curtains drawn. Any kind of projected image was impossible to see UNTIL NOW!!! Great price, easy to use right out of the box and EXCELLENT visibility of powerpoint presentation with photos and graphs. Intuitive remote with laser pointer.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
Summary: I ordered two Optoma projector from this seller through Amazon.com. I received the two projector and was not aware that one of them was defective until we schedule for installation. I am highly disappointed with how this case was handled. I am giving everyone a candid advice, not to place an order with this seller or else you will end up buying a refurbished or malfunctioned product, thinking you're getting the right stuff for your money.
Excerpt: This Optoma 500 projector is the most crisp and clear home theater projector I could have purchased. The salesman was so knowledgeable and helpful. We went into B&H thinking we needed one type of projector and got the greatest assistance from our salesperson. The installation was easy and it is user friendly. Our home theater will easily sit 12 to 14 people. Our only problem is we could use a room that would hold around 30.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV
Summary: This is an absolutely fantastic projector! I use it in a conference type setting and everything works flawless. It runs quiet for its size and I have never had a complaint even in a tight setting. Everyone is amazed at the quality of picture even with the all the lights up. Great buy.
Summary: Only down side is it is designed to be mounted to the ceiling upside down, so it required the bracket to do so… Looks great nice & quiet, remote / GUI interface is well designed - even has a laser pointer and comes with a nice carry case and lens cover included!
Excerpt: I use several large venue LCD projectors, mostly rear screen, but chose this one as a front projection monitor. I chose it for it's brightness but especially for its high contrast ratio. It is only slightly brighter that the LCD unit it replaced, but the contrast ratio makes it much easier for the users to read. Throw ratio is too long and there were some detail issues, example: the battery cover on the remote pushed a battery off its contact if the cover was closed.
