Summary: Personal Experience Experiencing white pixels on start up and sometimes refuses to start up at all. This is after owning it for four months and watching no more than twenty films on it. Picture is good, but the projector is unreliable. Problems Yup.
The absolute best projector for the money available. Stop shopping.

Summary: Boom! This projector is everything I thought it would be and more. What a deal. You get a lot for this thing and the price is reasonable. As info, I use it mounted on a back wall with a 16' throw. My picture is 12' w x 6' h. Absolutely love it. The darks are dark and the whites are white.
Summary: So far we have had no problem with it, after about 4 months. We have yet to explore the more fancy features, but... -Simple and user-friendly. -Reasonably quiet... can hardly hear it hum since you're listening to whatever is being played.
Summary: Great 3D picture with active shutter glasses. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 3D is a thing of beauty on this projector. Better than I thought was possible at home for less than a grand. Does need calibration but if you are getting a projector you already blacked out the room and bought a projector mount...
I set up this projector a year ago when I first bought it and it's been perfect ever since

Summary: I've been using this projector for a year now without any problems. I set up this projector a year ago when I first bought it and it's been perfect ever since. The picture quality is amazing and brightness is great! From what I found, this is the best projector for the price.
Just a great product that I can't say enough good things about

Summary: I have over 3000 hours on my projector and I haven't had any issues. Not the brightest projector but will work well if you have any kind of window coverings. I use this in my open floor plan house in my living room. Just a great product that I can't say enough good things about.
Summary: This is my first projector. Was a toss up between this and the BenQ w1070. At the time of my purchase this was $100 cheaper than the BenQ, so I went this route (huge price fluctuation between the two; as of writing this the BenQ is now $75 cheaper.) Not even remotely disappointed.
Summary: I would've given the projector 5 stars, but there are rainbow/ghosting issues with it, especially when there is text, eg closed captioning, on the screen. Many people probably don't notice this, but I can definitely see it. Otherwise, the projector is pretty decent.
Summary: It's been a week I have using this projector. So far I am very much impressed with it. I like the display clarity, no noise, little heat is coming but if we mounted then it's not a problem at all.
