Pros: Looked great, worked great, hung upside down, no issues for 3 years.
Cons: Bulb blew spectacularly after 3,500 hours. Put in new bulb and used for 6 months. Now it won't power up (constant blinking green). No idea of the problem yet, but the fan makes no noise, so that's suspicious.
It's been working great. Although newer models are brighter

Summary: It's been working great. Although newer models are brighter, this one has lasted me a while, until I choose to upgrade. The lamp did suddenly pop, while I was sitting underneath it, spreading glass debris through my hair. I replaced the lamp and I'm still satisfied with the projector.
Great projector but Optoma sucks at getting you parts so order else ware if you can.

Summary: Love this projector! Have had it for 2 yrs and as it is used as the main "tv" in my house it gets a lot of use. I've replaced the lamp once. It was very simple! Find a screw under a sticker, remove trap door. Pull out old one push new in and bam your done.
Summary: Watching movies with this projector and a quality sound system makes you not miss going to the movies. Grab some popcorn, sit on your sofa and turn up the volume to watch movies in high quality. Excellent graphics for the price.
Summary: I have enjoyed this projector and was pleased with the picture it threw, much better than the 720p projector I'd had previously. I did not however like the amount of time it took to switch between different inputs. The process was lengthy and frustrating at times.
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: This is definitely a high definition Projector, the picture is amazing. I use it for movies in blu Ray which are eye catching. Everyone who has seen this compliment the picture quality and can't believe the sharpness.
Summary: I bought a refurbished one and I couldn't be happier. It came packaged like a brand new unit with all cables and accessories. We do dive-in movies in the summer and fire pit movies in the winter and this projector works like a champ. Crisp, rich HD picture.
