Summary: Purchased from ebay for $500 in 2010. Use it about once every other day. This machine has been wonderful! We dont watch tv, dont own a tv but we do watch DVDs, have a ps2 and have a GBTV subscription online. So we have ours set up that we can view from computer, ps2. 5 stars! great purchase. it's worth about triple what we paid for it. Cinema+ experience in your own home!
Summary: I bought this projector because Projectorreviews.com gave it a "hot" rating. It bragged about how it had a 5x, 7 section color wheel to see little to no rainbows. Well, I still see tons of rainbows when there is action on the screen. For dramas, the projector is awesome. I love the rich blacks (instead of grays) on the screen. However, when action pops up, I see rainbows like crazy. It is very irritating.
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. I also bought the epson duet projector screen, which is 80inch, so i can bring it to my friends house or watch in the backyard. It's very portable.
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. The unit was installed in late September of that year.
Summary: We bought this projector from the Best Buy outlet store on ebay and we have been thrilled about it ever since. The picture is amazing, it's easy to use and set up. The picture is bright and high contrast. One of the best things about it is that it is whisper quiet. We have ours about 15 or 16 feet back and it throws up a very sharp 10 foot screen. Nothing but smiles at our house. I'd recommend this to anyone.
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. The picture quality is super. The ease of use is very simple. I was a typical male and did not even open the manual... I did not need to.
