Summary: I use this thing daily so far so good been 10 months and no problems. Can not be mounted in the corner of a room though has to be middle only keystones the left and right edges to go from a square shape to more of a triangle to compensate for elevation... not from left to right though.
Summary: I purchased this in Jan of 2011... used it as my main TV at home... recently, I stated to see a couple of black and white specks on the image... I thought it was dirt... boy was I wrong... turns out the dmd chip needs replacement... the part alone costs 330.00....
Summary: I have owned this Projector for 2 years and have managed to rack up almost 7000 hours on the original lamp in eco mode. While the dark scenes can be overly dark it don't impact viewing of any normal or bright scenes. I love watching a high bit rate blu-ray on this.
Pros: Cheap compared to a much smaller lcd tv, easy to take outside for some backyard viewing
Cons: Dark scenes are too dark even in a perfectly dark room, Fan is noisy in normal lamp mode
Summary: I purchased one recently because the first one I bought lasted for 3 years. Apparently they must be building these cheaper because the one I received crapped out in 3 weeks. It sounded like the fan or the color wheel was constantly spinning and making loud grinding noises.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought my Optoma HD20 in 2011. Before i bought this projector i computed the distance from screen to ceiling. my screen is 100"" and is located in my living room. I installed first the projector mount holder even before the projector arrived.
Summary: great image, great value, horrible reliability. i did a lot of research on the best value 1080p home theater projector and this one won. i really enjoyed it for the approximately 300 hours that i used it.
Summary: I've owned this projector for about a year and a half and have been pleased with the picture quality. However, I've had to send it in twice already for repairs. The first repair was necessary after about six months of use (the projector is only used 2-3 time per week for a couple hours each time)...
Summary: I had this for 1 year and 4 months now. Everything was fine until today. Heard a pop, and a hissing sound. There was still a picture, but in black & white and all out of focus. I replaced the bulb anyway, but that wasn't the problem. It was still the same after bulb was changed.
Great Projector, Worth Every Penny!!!-First Review, hopefully its helpful

Summary: I absolutely love this projector. Initially I was looking for another TV. Once I started looking at TV's I realized that I couldn't get a decent size tv (48" +) under $600 . (My thinking) Once I buy the tv, spend $600 and buy a full motion/tilt wall-mount ($120) I will have spent $750+ and will have...
