Summary: Bought this to use with my ps3. I realized the ps3 resolution increasingly approaches crap as the image is blown up larger. The projector seemed fine, though. So I shelled up some more money for a PS4. The playstation 4 has great resolution for starters and the projector does great justice by it. I'm pretty serious about my images and I had no image issues, really. The color balance was perfect out of the box, though a little on the duller side.

Summary: Picture quality is awesome! A major improvement over my old Mitsubishi HC4900 which only had a 1000 Lumens bulb. The Optoma is 2500 Lumens, and is more than bright enough even in low bulb (Eco) mode. I have it set up for 110" diagonal with projector ~12' from the screen & ceiling mounted. We use it to watch TV, movies (BluRay player and PC), and play XBox.
Summary: Picture quality is excellent. One drawback is it produces quite some heat while it is on, even in the econ mode. All in all, it beats most of the large screen TVs in the market in terms of real life experience. It permits one to feel "being there" while watch wild life or scenery pictures. I recommend this projector to anyone who wants sensation and satisfaction in watching movies.
Summary: This is my first projector and i can tell you that its very nice going from a 42inch 720p plasma TV to a 92IN projector screen in 1080p. I would like to point out a few things i learned in my process of seting this guy up. 1. big one would be calabrating color to the correct settings is much tougher than it is on a TV. 2. The Projector can tell what kind of imput is being sent to it and to kick it into what ever resolution it needs to be in.
Summary: Wow. I was looking for a 1080p projector replacement after the bulb in my trusty 7 year old 720 P Optoma HD70 blew out. Could have replaced the bulb for a little over $200 but I thought I might as well put that money towards an upgrade to 1080P. I read all the reviews that talked about the "pop" of the 1080P picture and the brightness of it.
Summary: We're accustomed to DLP image quality having had an InFocus X1 for over 10 years. But it's still remarkable how much of an improvement this is in every category. As others have mentioned, it's super-quiet. Image quality and focus from corner to corner is perfect (at least on our unit). 1080p content is superb. And 3D content is blowing the family away.
Summary: It's working well! Great picture and color for the home movie enthusiast. You don't need to waste your money on those high dollar projectors - this one does just fine, even during the day in a well or light in a well lighted room. HD sporting events, Movies, Shows are just awesome on 100 inch screen! And the price is just too great to pass up. I had to replace my old Optoma - the arcing ballast went out... but it was 6 years old... never replaced a bulb.
Excerpt: This is a great projector. One strife I have right off the bat is the picture displayed of the projector is not actually what it looks like. It looks like the Hd 131xe white projector. Right out of the box it was extremely easy to set up. We've been playing it on eco mode with great color. We do have the projector set up in the room with dark lighting but we have tried it with recessed lighting on with minimal effect.
