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.... I am soooo disgusted with this whole ordeal... Ill never purchase an Optoma again... no warranty to cover this!!! BUYER BEWARE!!
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. Must have blown the DLP circuitry. I can here parts rattling around inside the case. I'll be checking projectors from a different manufacturer.
Summary: I've owned my HD20 for almost 2 years now. It has not seen heavy use, mostly weekend "movie nights" with the family. I was very impressed with the picture quality when I first received the projector and felt like I made a good choice for the price and the fact that it was a 1080p projector. After about 18 months I started noticing occasional flickering while watching movies.
Summary: With only 75 hours of use , the image shows vertical lines and the colors change, it seems the damage is common in many of these projectors, I can not understand the lack of quality control, be serious !!
Summary: We bought this projector in June 2010. In March 2011 the picture started flickering badly. Bad color wheel. Okay. Sent the projector back to Optima as it was still under warranty. They said they fixed it and sent it back. Fedex returned it to them and didn't deliver it to me. They called to verify my address. It was correct. They said they'd send it back to me. I think this is the point where they lost my projector. It didn't come. I called them to get a tracking number.
"May function well, but Optoma does not stand behind it"

Pros: Functionality is good
Cons: Optoma will not stand behind a lemon if you happen to get one. My projector was returned for repairs six times and now that the warranty is expired they told me to take a hike and buy another brand if I don't like it.
