Very limited life span, black spots, no usable picture

Stempile, Amazon

  • Summary: After it died I researched more details and found that the DLP engine is prone to failure. I looked into replacing it, it is possible but $80-100 to do so. Black spots start to appear with use and finally the picture is so degrade it is not usable. Very disappointed, I do not recommend.

Yikes.

  • Summary: Find a "try before you buy" option. Not cheap and not effective. Room must be very very dark for any viewable picture. Battery life way too short.

Bad color match

Edgar W, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: After a couple of months the projector does not project true colors, and the color it does show changes with the orientation of the projector. For the money it cost to begin failing after only a few months is very disappointing.
