Summary: I bought this last year by Costco online, but they don't seem to sell this anymore. For a price point under $1K, this projector is not only compact, but had been brilliant for me. I'm not an expert when it comes to various image quality specifications, but I can say that for an average movie person,...
Summary: I bought it and love it for its great picture. The image is very clear from my computer. The HDMI may prevent sound come out of computer, once HDMI sound is disable on the computer the sound will be fine. All whole family and friends are enjoying it.
Summary: This is a great projector for home theater use. The picture quality is very good. I am using it since the past 3 months, has been great up till now. There is a bit of fan noise, but when watching a movie with surround sound, the noise does not bother much.
Summary: I have had my own Home Theater for the last 8 years. I started with a Mitsubishi 480p, then upgraded to the Sony 720p, and finally came across this little gem of a projector that blew the others away. I mounted the Optoma HD180 on the ceiling and threw the image from 15 ft back on a 110" screen.
Summary: This is my second Optoma projector. I have been Optoma fan since last 6-7 years now. I used to have Optoma DV11 which had inbuilt DVD player and it was my favorite until one day a crappy Redbox DVD got stuck in it.
Summary: I purchased this projector refurbished off woot.com for $650. Great deal, right? I then built an entire home theater around this unit, purchasing a 5.1 surround receiver and speaker system, electric projector screen, mounting hardware, speaker wire, etc.
Summary: Personal Experience Almost the same projector as Optoma's HD20, but can usually be found at a lower price point. The image is beautiful & full HD. I found mine new for $650 at sellout.woot.com.

Summary: The picture out of the box is OK. However, once projected on a gray projection screen to increase contrast (not white) and some minor color adjustments this projector comes to live when playing blue ray disks. Perfect picture !! Here are my adjustments made in the setup menu of the projector!
