deeply disappointed

Jeff & or Elizabeth, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: We've had ours for 19 months now. It was so much fun, not perfect, but we worked around the limitations like no audio output. I think the upgrades have that now. Last weekend it went dim. I mean really dim, almost can't see it in a dark room dim. Now this is a LED projector!!! I researched exhaustively before making my selection. LED projectors are supposed to give 20,000 hours of bright light minimum. And there's no way to replace the bulbs because of this.

Connection Issue

ADR, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this projector this year Jan. It is giving me hard time to connect to laptops. It regularly gives message "scanning" ,scans all ports HDMI,VGA and gives black screen. It was giving problem from first day but i thought it has loose connection so i ignored. Then I changed the HDMI cable used Apple HDMI cable but problems persist. Now problem became worse enough and it takes 15-20 min. to start projector.

failed 2 months after warranty expired

  • Summary: Mine went very dim after 14 months. Pretty good while it lasted, but now it's essentially worthless. The rest of the reviewers will find out soon enough, and you know Optoma has to be aware of the problem.

Unit started having problems after 3 weeks and died at day 31

J.H. "Gino", Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Projector worked fine for first 3 weeks no problem. 4th week when kids were over it would go black for 3-5 seconds about 1-2 times per movie from Netflix. After about 4 days of slowly increasing time, unit now goes black for 5-10 seconds every 5 minutes or so. Too long to return to Amazon (Day 33-Day 30 was Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend) and now I have to send it in for warranty. What a crock.

unbrauchbar

xonox01, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: leider! Sehr schönes gerät,welches sehr gut verarbeitet ist, auch das zubehör ist ordentlich bei lieferung. Negativ. Der Lüfter ist ultralaut und wird nach ca 4 Monaten benutzung immer lauter. Hört sich an wie ein fön. die linse ist innen mit staub versehen, da sie nicht gekapselt ist, also ab in den service, hat ca 3 wochen gedauert, schräg.

Sehr gut aber laut

cymeg "DK", Amazon
7 January 2012
  • Summary: Nachtrag: Nach ca.6 Monaten intensiver Nutzung ist der Lüfter immer lauter geworden und der Beamer hat mangels unzureichender Abdichtung Staubpartikel in die Optik hineingesaugt. Die Staubpartikel wurden dann als große helle Punkte auf die Leinwand projiziert. Die Lautstärke im Eco Modus geht vielleicht gerade noch so aber im Normalmodus ist der Lärm des Lüfters eine Frechheit. Kann das Gerät nicht empfehlen.
