Summary: Image is bright and the sharpest and most detailed I have seen. I did not have to tilt the projector to get image alignment, that was nice. I just got it so I cannot talk about reliability. Replacement bulbs cost $103 so be aware of that.

Summary: Projects well, though it's really more appropriate for a large room and screen than a small conference room. The HDMI seems to be a better choice than the VGA connection if you can use it. Also this model doesn't zoom very well, more of a software zoom than hardware. The little rubber cable that links the lens cover to the lens came off almost immediately and couldn't be reattached by any means I was able to use, weird little fishhook arrangement.
Excerpt: We are using this as a confidence monitor for the back of our church auditorium. Got the projected size we needed and it is plenty bright and easy to see from 100 feet away (stage). Highly recommended!
Incredibly bright, lightweight, and short throw for a huge screen

Summary: This thing is an amazing projector. We use in a full room lighting and it's bright as day. I use it to project downwards on a tabletop and from about 5' up it projects to over 8 feet wide. I honestly think this thing could cover an entire normal house wall!! Technology here is amazing, and I've been using all kinds of projectors in my multimedia business for over 20 years!
Summary: We were hosting a user conference and wanted to light up a pretty big screen so we picked this projector up. It arrived pretty much the next day and I set it up in our board room just to test before we left for the conference. I set it up where the current projector was and it not only filled the entire wall, but also most of the ceiling. I moved it closer, pretty much 2 feet from the wall. Unbelievably bright and perfect to project large images.
Excerpt: Super bright short throw projector. I use this primarily for theatrical projections for which it works very well for. pros- bright very wide quick shut down and start up small and lightweight pretty good video black fairly quiet cons- no internal shutter no lens shift, or zoom networking capabilities are PC only
