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 I bought this to replace an outdated but really good CRT projector that weighed over 150 lbs.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. It is a similar size to a cable box and probably lighter. This projector is awesome for gaming and movie night but requires a really dark room. It is easy on the eyes also.
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. I'm a bit perplexed by this problem because my friend's projector is not nearly as loud as mine.
Summary: I love my projector a have a nice screen I use with it too. I won't go back to a regular tv after this projector. Nothing beats a 108 in screen. Friends n family like it. Girlfriend loves watching movies on it. Bright, vivid screen. Worth the price. Good surround sound recommended for best experience! Perfect for something under a 1000 bucks.
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. It has component, also, so I stick my DirecTV HD receiver on that port (component will do up to 1080i, which is HDTV's highest resolution, but it will not take 1080p on the component port).
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 (with "max" sharpness setting). This model (HD65) is still available on the Web at bargain prices (replaced by the HD66).
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. We have to use a few sheets of paper under the feet to offset the angle of the screen. It's ok, though, it performs perfectly with great quality!
