Summary: I was very happy with this projector but when it stopped working, the support from Optoma is HORRID. I sent it back to the Official Optoma r Repair company (part of Optoma) Optoma wanted more money for its repair than the cost of buying a Brand New & Better Projector (HD26).
Summary: I sparingly used this optoma for 9 months. Meaning I would use this maybe an average of 3 hours per week for 9 months. Suddenly, it reads FAN LOCKED SHUTTING DOWN. One month later, I had a wedding to use this projector for a slide show.
bad product, over heats and fail after 20 minutes of use

Summary: I purchased this to put into my home theater build project. I have yet to complete my home theater room and so haven't use the projector much more other then test mounting and seeing what works best for my setup.
Summary: it was a good projector for about 2months. I bought it to use n Iraq one day it just stopped working thought it was the lamp because the fan turned on but not the light. After a week of it not working i shipped it home. THE WARRANTY DOSE NOT COVER PROJECTOR LAMPS.
Summary: I couldn't be more disappointed with the Optoma HD65. My Panasonic PT-AE700 LCD projector began a rapid decline after only 3000 hrs (and a $300 bulb replacement) due to it's poor optical block design and the dreaded blue blob that eventually covered the entire screen.
Summary: The picture quality is great and it's lightweight, blah blah blah blah blah... It all means nothing if THE $400 BULB ONLY LASTS TWO WEEKS! Thank God it was within 30 days of purchase and Amazon replaced the unit without any problems but when it gets to day 31 on this replacement unit I'M GOING TO...
Summary: The picture is excellent... WHEN IT'S WORKING. I have had the projector for 2 months. It has be out of service for half that time. Customer service (which doesn't even give the option to talk to someone on a phone, everything is e-mail) ignores requests.
Summary: I bought this projector about a month ago. The price was incredible. Within a week after roughly watching 5 movies when pressed on button to turn the projector on the blue screen came on and the next thing it said "Warning Fan Locked" and turned off automatically.
Summary: Before purchasing this projector I compared it to other models including other Optoma models. It met my needs - component video for now and hdmi for the future. I previously had a MovieTime 10 so I've gotten used to the big screen especially for watching movies as I enjoy watching my large...
