Summary: Personal Experience I've owned this projector for a few weeks shy of 3 years. For me, it's a daily use projector as video for my home theater system. I don't have the A/V experience that some others might have on this site but I can say I'm very satisfied with this projector.
Summary: I own a sports bar and purchased 7 of these projectors. 4 out of the 7 have all had the exact same problem where white dots slowly begin showing up on the screen until eventually the entire picture is just solid white.
Summary: Personal Experience This Compact little unit is brighter and has a sharper picture than anything I have seen in its class. As A Professional A/V Tech in the Las Vegas Trade Show Industry I deal with all of the Name Brands.

Summary: I just tried out this EP728 in a multi-purpose hall which holds about 120 persons and has lots of windows. I closed a few of the blinds but left plenty of ambient light in the room to see how bright the movie would be. The picture was great on default settings both in sharpness and brilliance.
