  • Summary: Personal Experience Purchase price is great value, however if you want to change bulbs 4 times a year , the value is gone. This is a poorly mad product. Junk.

bulb blew after a week of use..

Michael H., Newegg

  • Summary: if this is a sign of Optoma quality, then i would look for a different brand. it is possible it was damaged in shipping though. i will update this review if it is replaced and works well.
  • Pros: beautiful picture, easy to set up. great interface for video settings.
  • Cons: my bulb blew out after a week. RMA'd to newegg. waiting for a verdict. never left it on for more than 8 hours.

Make sure you have one year warranty

  • Summary: I have been using it for more than a year and I am happy with the projector. I mostly watch cable and dvd movies using it. However, I am not sure how long the lamp will last. It is supposed to work for 3000 hours, however, last time it did not work nearly as long.

Broke after 5 days

Vickie S. Pflueger "Wannabe Digital Diva", Amazon

  • Summary: I got home from work yesterday and my son tells me the projector is broken. It had an error saying Fan Failure, now it won't turn on. Contacted Amazon for return authorization and they automatically ordered another for me. I'm waiting on UPS to pick up the old one and Amazon to ship my new one.

Buy a bulb warranty

Jim, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a refurb with only a 90 day warranty. Bulb that is supposed to last 3000hrs lasted for 5 months (720hrs) & cost me $344.00 to replace. For the price I paid for the projector & the replacement bulb, I could have bought a 1080p projector.

Junk

  • Summary: Had this projector for like a year. Didnt even get the fool life of the bulb out of it, just dropped the signal one day. The component does not work either just a green picture with static. May get it repaired if its not a arm and a leg.

Very Impressed

D. Weber, Amazon

  • Summary: UPDATE 1/12/13: Well, I've owned this projector for almost 4 years now and I want to share some thoughts on it. This projector, as far as I know, is discontinued because of newer models. However, if you are looking at purchasing one, let me share my experiences with you before you make a decision.

  • Excerpt: Bought one of these a little while back after a recommendation for optoma DLP projectors. Was also reasonably priced for a HD projection system. Have this hooked up to my PS3 though its HDMI connection at present and it works like a dream, the picture quality is amazing in HD.
  • Pros: Great picture quality, especially from HD sources .  .
  • Cons: few niggles, poor power connection
