Summary: I was so excited when finally my PK201 arrived. I read the manuals before actually used it, charged it, connected to my laptop and watched one 20-min tv series. At the end of the series, I realized that white spots started to appear at the bottom of my screen.
Summary: Wish i didn't spend my money. It would have been a great device, except that the memory card gets heated up and burn eventually from the inside. Not sure why but it heats up so bad that it will burn your finger if touch while device is on. Memory should have been place away from that heat source
Summary: When I bought it upper corner of the image was blurry. I should have returned it. I had a project so I had to keep it. Now there are bunch of white spots on the projected image. Optoma Technical service does not reply inquiries. Waste of 280 dollars...
Summary: Very, very light usage since we purchased it about two years ago. No more than 400 hours of total usage (in fifteen minute chunks with the unit powered off inbetween) and it is now impossible to use owing to the black and white spots taking up about 40% of the screen. Will not buy again.
Summary: very disappointed in this product. Image at max. size is not clear or clean. Returned it 24 hours after I received it. Required a special patch cord to use with the Macbook Pro. No instructions come with the device and customer support was terrible. Keep shopping...!
Summary: Had it for about two years. I only used it on occasion. They advertise that the lens will last 20,000 hours. Mine lasted around 500 hours (being generous). Called the company and was told it as out of warranty.
Summary: The projector was nice while it lasted. I've only had this thing for a year and the screen is starting to look like a star field. No it is not dust, as I have cleaned out the projector thinking the same thing. Apparently it is the chip. I only discovered this after Googling "white spots pk201.
Summary: Only used this thing maybe 4 Times, and Last night turned it on and White spots all over the screen from a Bad Cmd chip as I googled the problem that so many are having. Optoma should refund all our money or give us a free corrected Projector!!
