Summary: Personal Experience Bought this projector 11 years ago. Still on the original bulb. Has worked flawless. Great features for it's time. Just replaced it with a view sonic pro 8200. I hope that the new one is as reliable as the Optoma. Problems None, flawless!!
Summary: Personal Experience I bought this projector used ( $350. CD.) and was very happy with how quick and simple it was to use.I have used it on walls, as well as screens and it gives a very nice picture. Contrast is good and brightness is more then enough, I have mine turned down to about 30%.
Summary: Personal Experience I got one used for $275 in 2006, a pretty good bargain. Piture is bright and clear, but contrast ratio of only 350:1 leaves something to be desired even for a low-budget home theater.
Summary: Personal Experience I have been using this projector for about a month and have my cable TV, DVD player, and VCR playing flawlessly. A little tricky getting the brightness/contrast/hue setup for all sources but very bright and great picture.
Summary: Personal Experience Unless you are prepared for only 4 years usage, DO NOT BUY THIS PROJECTOR. I was very happy with the clarity and general ease of use until it came to after sales service. Once my guarantee ran out, the company did not want to know.
