Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector but I have done a fair bit of research and a few friends who have home theaters with projectors. I use it for my kids xbox (kinect), using the xbox as a TV tuner, blue-ray, DVD, and even hooked up my old VCR with it. In short, it has been awesome and the short-throw in particular makes it easy to configure a room with the kinect. My kids (and their friends!) love the set-up.
Summary: Personal Experience If you dont have a lot of space and want a big ass screen, nothing can beat this projector!! the image quality is very good, the blacks arent awesome but its ok, you wont notice it once your used to it and only had rainbow effect in tron legacy, and its not annoying just a couple of times you will notice it a little bit.
Summary: Personal Experience Horrible design defect - stay away! Problems I bought 6 projectors and in just under 60 days, 3 of them died. There is a fatal design flaw in this projector related to heat. The color wheel assembly goes crazy and stops working. HORRIBLE.
Something to take with you every where because of the size

Summary: Great, nice and bright. Good short throw distance and easily portable. Perfect for bedrooms. I have mines on a table about 5 feet from the wall. I have a good 84in diagonally on the wall and the speakers are loud enough. There is not any tv that can give you this. If i moved it back 6ft, i would have a 100+ image for only $500-600 dollars. I would pay a lot more for this size of a tv. Also, its on;y 6lbs.
Summary: Amazing projector at an amazing price!! Bright, short throw, big image with vibrant colors and life like pictures...had movie nights this past weekend projecting this onto a wall and we wonder if need a screen even. However, when I projected it onto my 80 inch screen the image "popped" even more! If you are tight on space and need short throw; this projector is the best out there.
BLEW MY MIND! (and my old projector out of the water!)

Summary: I bought a projector last fall that said it was "HD" but the screen door effect was so bad it was hard to read text. It was pretty dark so I could only use it at night. But THIS one! WOW! it's so bright, it's huge, and it's TRULY HD. I can read the text, the pixels are tiny. THe sound on the projector is loud even without having to hook up an external speaker.
Summary: Great projector for great price can't beat the bang for your buck...very bright and the speakers that come with it are surprisingly great the packaging was amazing dont matter how many stairs you drop it down it should be fine, wouldn't test that theory though.
Summary: Personal Experience I have not tried this for movie viewing but used it solely for Gaming via a PC the image is excellent and the tweakabilty (if that is a word) is endless. My set up is rather unique in as much as I am not projecting onto a regular screen but am experimenting using a Half dome and a rear projected image.
