Summary: The projector actually is rather nice when you first mount it and begin watching shows on it. The picture quality is pretty darn good. I could go on and say how happy you would be with it, which for the picture quality would be true.
Summary: This projector broke (with dead pixels) after less than two years of use. Optoma was kind enough to fix it for a one time only warranty because the warranty has expired! This was on Oct/Nov 2012. I was ecstatic.
Summary: I did some research and decided to purchase this projector. I found out that I am very sensitive to the rainbow effect of DLP and I had to return it. I ended up with an Epson 3LCD model and that turned out to be perfect. I'm not a videophile or very picky, it was just very distracting.
Summary: I purchased this Optoma HD66 projector on January 27, 2012 and it has been a great projector. I have just recently replaced the lamp as i have over 5200 hours on this projector and it is doing great!
Summary: The only reason this projector doesn't get 5 stars is because I had to replace the first projector I bought. I tried working with Optoma directly since the projector was still under warranty when it started acting strange. After about a handfull of uses, vertical lines appeared in the picture.
Summary: I've bought the HD66 in 2011, everything was ok, hooked up to PS3 through HDMI, and a Xbox 360. A few dead pixels started to spread, in 2012, checked everywhere, people had the same issue, but no clear answers from the company. Bad reviews started to pop out allover the Internet.
Summary: This product hás a problem With dmd chip And in less Than 2 years dead pixels Will appear. Optoma havent change or solve the problem yet And continue selling a projector With short lifetime. The piko301 has the same problem.
Beware of inflated reviews - This projector will die in 2 years!!!

Summary: Just like all of the other one star reviews, sure enough after 2 years of use I'm getting black and white pixels appearing by the hour. Very sad, because I was really liking my switch from traditional TV set to projector.
Summary: I bought this used but with only about 30 hours of bulb use. 6 months later the screen is COVERED in dead pixels. Do yourself a favor and avoid this projector at all costs. Up until a couple weeks ago I would have sworn it was one of my best purchases, but now I completely regret the decision.
