Summary: Personal Experience I found this unit has a great image and very bright. It is easy to use. Problems My problem is with Optoma Customer Service. It is one of the worse that I have seen in a long while. I have bought this unit new on sale in July 2009 to install in a new house we were building.
Summary: This projector showed outstanding HD quality pictures. I thought it wouldn't compare to a regular HD TV but it sure does when u play at night and on a projector screen. I mainly use it for wacthing blu ray movies.
Summary: I am just about done remodeling our whole upstairs which includes our 500sf gameroom. I am creating a portion of that to be the "media" area and decided to go with a projector. I got this projector b/c the reviews were very good. To say the least, I am very very happy with this projector.
Summary: I purchased this projector through [...]. BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE! They call to confirm purchases, they follow up the purchase through email (AWESOME!) even 6 months after the purchase! Anyways, great connections: HDMI, VGA, DVI, RCA, Component. The ONLY problem I have with it: no audio out!
Summary: This is my first purchase of a projector after about a year of experience using others. I am a photographer who occasionally uses projectors to teach and was desiring a projector which was bright, and capable of maximizing details of images.
Summary: I have average knowledge when it comes to projectors; at 12.5' it projects a very nice image on an 106" screen. I have a grey, 1.8 gain Optoma Greywolf II screen and I am very pleased with the image. As for the noise created by the fan I have no complaints like other reviews I have read.
Summary: Less than 30 days after purchase, I'm waiting for an RMA to send it off for service or replacement. During the time it was working, it's display was excellent in a non-light controlled room (plenty of ambient lighting and lots of windows). I don't want my money back, I want this one to work!
