  • Summary: I bought this projector used For 450.. when i got it it only had 320hrs on the bulb now its up to 1200 hrs still running strong! i do keep in in a good home non smoking home keeping it clean is important since the fan cooling it is what helps make your bulb last longer i also run it on Econo mode they say it should get 3000 hrs compared to the 2000 hrs if u have it off. Anyways i would buy it again.......

  • Summary: Personal Experience I own two of these projectors. The contrast is excellent, Resolution and wonderful. I do notice rainbow effect with the slower colorwheel. Blurring on fast action scenes of movies. I am projecting on a 100" screen and the bulb is amazingly bright. In fact with a +1 gain screen it is too bright I have to use it on eco mode. Does get rather hot after an hour of use. The size is half of my other LCD projector so extremely portable.

Buyer Beware: Bulb does NOT last as advertised

  • Summary: We also bought one of these and the bulb burned out after less than 150 hours of use. It was supposed to last 2000 hours. To replace it: costs more than $400. My advice: don't buy Optoma!

Optoma EP749 DLP Projector

  • Summary: This projector has a GREAT picture! It is displayed on a fixed 110" screen, and it is perfect. We use it for sports games, Wii, watching movies. This projector has a good amount of lumens so we can have parties going, and have a lights on, and still see the screen very well.

EP749

Sad Customer, aboutprojectors.com

  • Summary: It has a great picture, but you cannot rely on it, good thing we had a back-up. For what you pay for this Item you would think you could at least get 6 months to a year out of it before the lamp goes. This projector was babied and never moved around, always kept clean not even used that often. I feel I was totally taken for the price and the length of time it actually worked.
  • Pros: It is lightweight and very portable. Great Picture Too!
  • Cons: The lamp went out almost immediately, then you have to pay almost half the price of the projector ( total after taxes )to replace the lamp.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Bought the EP719 used with about 30 hours of use on it for the low price of $200, so my expectations weren't the greatest, but I was surprised. The picture is bright, clear, and competes very well with the picture of my Toshiba 51" plasma. Set up is no problem with a basic plug and play configuration, it will recognize what the source is and switch to it, or you can do it manually.

lamp quit after 450 hr use

Julian Thomas, Amazon
13 March 2009
  • Summary: When it's working, the picture looks good. Unfortunately, after slightly over 1 year and 450 h of use, the lamp failed. Replacement lamp costs above $300. Customer service told me that they only have 90 days warranty on bulb and 1 year on projector. I heard the expected life time of the lamp is 2000 h. Will never buy Optoma again.
