Summary: I have had this projector for 3 years and just now blew the lamp. I bought this to replace an outdated but really good CRT projector that weighed over 150 lbs. I. Was immediately shocked at how simple it is to work, but it is so simple because they removed a lot of options.
Summary: I have owned the HD65 projector for just over 2 years now. I bought it because a good friend had the same one and I loved the picture quality. For the price, this system cannot be beat. However, I have had a few minor issues...well really just one issue that continues to this day: Fan noise.
Summary: Bought this as a gift. Easy to install and the clarity is amazing. Great accessory is a HDMI cable. Works great with video games and dvd's. Real crowd pleaser. Great for sleepovers, movie night and other occasions.
Summary: Good economical projector, not to noisy,and relatively easy to use menu. Warmup time to view and Some heat issues but that is normal for most projectors. The Optoma bulb lasted as long as the warranty plus a month, so not as good as other projector bulbs I've used.
Summary: This projector does 1080p (Blu-ray), 1080i (HDTV), 720p, etc. It does not have an audio speaker built-in, so you'll have to use an AV receiver that has its own speaker system. It has only 1 HDMI port, which I put my Playstation 3 Blu-ray player on.
Summary: This is probably one of the best entry level projectors, especially when compared to other PJ's similar in price. This is my first projector, and I have no plans on upgrading anytime soon. It's capabilities are comparable to PJ's in the $1000+ range, definitely worth the money.
Pros: -Great image quality -excellent color depth -Brightness effective in combating mild to moderate ambient light -Works great out of the box, very user friendly -Excellent Price -Black levels are above average on basic unpainted blackout cloth screen, excellent after I painted screen with a reflecti...
Cons: -Same complaint as others, it gets very hot when in use, and can heat up small sized rooms. -Limited zoom capabilities, manual focus is annoying since it is ceiling mounted -Not very compatible with universal remotes.
Summary: I purchased this projector used, with 20 hours on it and 11 months left on the warranty. But, The HDMI input does not work (use YCrCb/RGB instead) but the price was right. Otherwise, the 1080i HDTV, BD and up-scaled DVD images (77" picture at 10') are very bright, richly colored, and very sharp...
Summary: Great picture, great price. HDMI Port along with component and VGA. Menu is sometimes difficult to work with (you can only make changes if you have a source running into it) and picture adjustments are minimal. Requires a pretty good angle to be viewed perfectly.
Summary: I have used friends projectors in the past but this is the first one I have owned. I love it! The picture quality is great even though I havent recieved my screen yet. so far I have just been using a white wall and it looks really good.
