Summary: Pros: Size, weight, DLP, cheap replacement bulbs (compared to other projectors,) backlit remote (you wouldn't believe how many budget projectors lack this basic and absolutely necessary feature) Cons: Limited contols, limited installation adjustments (you have to measure precisely), hard to find...
Summary: The above poster down rated this projector today since it came up on the Amazon deal list, yet he/she doesn't even own it. I'm going to give the projector a 5 star rating for the sake of fairness. Been seeing a LOT more of these down rating reviews from questionable accounts lately...it's not right.
Summary: I paid $390 for this projector on Oct 25th, 2010. I see that it is out of stock now. The projector arrived on the 28th and it works perfect. I love it. I use the projector only for watching movies and playing video games at night. I read some reviews that complained about the noise.

Summary: I bought this projector in 2008 and I am using it every day with no issues up to now. My Lamp is coming up to 3000 hours but other than that excellent. Use it on my PS3 to watch BlueRays and play games and it has been great.
Excerpt: Once upon a time setting up a home cinema was only thought to be for the mega rich, but things have changed over the last 8 yeasr in a big way. We currently have Kef speakers paired up to a Denon amp, all we needed was a half decent projector to complete our home theater experience.
Summary: Fantastic value for money; this projector punches above its weight. I am projecting onto a 2 metre wide (not sure what the diagonal measurement is) screen and getting fantastic results - MUCH sharper than the image you get in a cinema. The level of detail you see (e.g.
