Summary: This was a great purchase. I jumped on this when it was on a deep discount, and do.not.regret. It is incredibly quiet (are you sure it's off?), the sound from the speakers is good, and it has several ways to accept input.
there are much better projectors for the money made by BenQ and Optoma

Summary: Owned this for 2+ years. Had to be sent back for repair (under warranty - last I checked these DO have a very long warranty) three times in that period. When the lamp eventually went out, it exploded in the projector (I do mean exploded) which was unexpected to say the least.
Summary: It works good. Recently upgraded to an SI screen (gray) and it improves the picture quality a bit. The lamp is plenty bright so don't have to dark out the entire room. Only one keystone dimension so it has to be a straight line to the screen. Can adjust the image up and down but not left and right.
Pros: Still running on the original lamp after all these years. Nice picture quality.
Cons: Struggles with the darker contrast like most projectors. Also it is quite loud. Sitting near it can be a bit distracting. Not as many keystone options as other projectors.
Projector is currently at 120 inchs in a shot gun style living room with pretty good at blocking light out

Summary: After 4 years she is still alive and ticking, replaced one lamp for $100 by reusing my original lamp base, at the time the manufacture couldn't even supply the bulb. Has a few small issues ie: sound pops when turning on the first 40 seconds is all maybe 5 pops in audio (if passing audio thru it to...
Summary: fills a 120" screen quite well in a medium lit room. very happy with it after at least 1000 hours of use. this is an older model now, but DVDs (component) look fantastic on it, 1080P TV is even better.
Summary: Won't be upgrading my PRO8200 until I go to 4k. So yea, I love this projector. I suggest buying this projector and a "DarbeeVision DVP-5000" (if you can wing it financially $199.00) and you'll be set when it comes to sheer image size and visual clarity for years to come.
Summary: I did a bit of searching to find an HD projector with built in speaker and this one came up as the most recommended. It fits the bill perfectly. Decent lumens for the price and plenty of connections for all potential users. Colors are good throughout the spectrum, blacks okay.
