Excerpt: I made a budget of $ to buy a projector. After comparing everything in that range I decided that the sonic pjd5132 was worth the extra $. And nothing at the $ range can touch its clean picture. Very pleased!!
Outstanding Projector, blows away a real theater's picture quality..

Summary: Great projector, however, I have only had the chance to use it once. I bought it for a classroom setup and month later the school installed projectors so now I am most likely going to sell it. The one time I did use it the image quality was better than looking at something in a movie theater, obviously HD and so forth.
Pros: Very bright display - works well even in well-lit conference rooms. Bought it for presentation use, but it also works great for movies as well. The price is absolutely unbeatable. I'm very happy and would definitely buy this again.
Cons: Can't quite figure out how to get the remote to work for advancing slides, etc. but that's just me. Display is only 800x600 - which I knew going in, and it hasn't been a problem for me, but may be a deal breaker for some.
Summary: Bought the projector for ministry use. It is good for simple stuff and showing videos, but I have a hard time seeing the picture if it is a darkened scene. It works for what we wanted it for, so we are happy!
Summary: Not having an HDMI port proved to be problematic and the picture ia always slightly crooked, and I have to prop up the left back leg with somthing everyb time, but a good picture, and so far no other problems , however in hindsight I wish I would have purchased the similar model with an HDMI port.

Great basic projector. Mac users - be warned though!

Summary: This is a nice, economical projector that's lightweight and relatively easy to use. Bought it to travel for events at work and making it a lot more efficient than renting projectors along the way. One warning for Mac users, you definitely need a VGA to Mini DisplayPort, I tried a DVI converter and it didn't quite work, so get something like "AmazonBasics Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) to VGA Adapter" and it should be fine.
