Summary: I have this setup on a 120" screen on a covered porch with 3/4 open sides that get some sun. I bought cheap roll up blinds and I can say you can start to watch regular (non-3D) movies. And at about 7:00pm, when the sun starts to go down you can watch 3D movies with great detail. I am by no means an expert I just wanted a "theater" on my porch. This absolutely fit the bill.
Summary: There are already excellent reviews that cover the color, brightness and cost/benefit-analysis - I am beneficiary of those reviews and grateful to those who spent time to write them. In this review - I will cover precisely what I needed to put together a movie-hall experience with a 150-inch diagonal screen (yes - HD from Bluray, Netflix, OTA looks stunning even at this size) - hopefully this will help those who want to do it, but don't have the time to think through all...
Summary: I have been finding a Full HD Projector for long time, I need it to be bright enough but compact as I can carry it with me. I am using MS Surface Pro so it is come with Full HD so I can make use of full resolution with the pen to let student my drawing and illustration. I am so happy with this product as it is affordable and bright enough.
Summary: Have had zero issues with set-up and installation--able to quickly do so with the manual controls on the lens and via the remote. You can even customize some energy (and bulb) saving features custom to meet your needs. I have a dedicated theater room with dark walls and a dark ceiling, so the black housing matches perfectly and can be installed to the ceiling up-side-down without a problem (VideoSecu LCD/DLP Projector Valuted Ceiling Mount Bracket with 22.4-Inch...
Summary: Love this projector. Use it for gaming on my ps3 playing first person shooters, movies, and many more things less demanding. It handles all of these needs with a bright and clear picture that can keep up easily. The lamp is starting to darken after about 1000 hours and I'll need to rebuy soon. Great bang for buck.
The reviews are true - awesome projector - here's a little help with wall paint in case you don't own a big $$$ screen

Summary: Like I said above, the reviews are true. This thing is INCREDIBLE. The challenge becomes feeding it a high enough quality signal because it can reveal so much detail. Low quality broadcasts are almost painful to watch. My one minor complaint is only 1 HDMI input, but a selector switch bought from Amazon which allows me to run 1 long cable to the projector and automatically selects between 3 HDMI signals sorts that problem out. So on to wall painting.
Great projector for those with a couple of extra dollars (but don't want to spend more than $1000 on a complete system)

Summary: I’m just spellbound by the clearity of this projector. Sharp picture, eco mode, quiet fan, small size, and ease of use. This projector is in a small room 12 feet from the wall. The ViewSonic PJD7820HD projects about 110 inch wide or so image. The only downside to this projector that I see is that it only has one HDMI connection (solved with a 3 to 1 switch) but if you’re connected to a Playstation (3 or 4) then it’s a non-issue.
