Worked great for 3 weeks

HiFi Guy, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • 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. So loud that I couldn't hear the movies. Luckily it was within Amazons return policy. Amazon customer service was great to work with BTW.

May not be as inexpensive as you think...

Andrew C Hoburg, Amazon

  • 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) and turned out to be a bad circuit/mother board. Another repair for the exact same issue was required after another nine months and was not covered under warranty.

Major placement issues

Michael "Classics fiend", Amazon

  • Summary: I have rated this product three stars based solely on the extreme difficulty with finding a decent place in my living room for it. I need something that's higher up, but this is really designed for a coffee table setting. The quality itself is amazing, and I very much enjoyed playing the ps3 on it. I will be returning it though and going with an epson that has many more options for display and placement.

Calibration is tougher!!

Anupam K. Nath "tapu_anu", Amazon

  • Summary: I have been playing with the HD20 for last couple of days. I am still not sure what to say. Unlike any of my previous projectors(Optoma HD31 and HD70) it gives u too many options to calibrate. I guess that is a good thing. However,I am still struggling with this process and seems like quite overwhelming to me. Good thing is picture is much bigger and brighter than HD70. Super wide is a nice option.
