Summary: Personal Experience This projector confounded me for the first few months. First I couldn't stop noticing digital noise in the picture, then the color wheel started squeaking, plus I could never get the gamma levels correct. Then after a few hours the wheel stopped squeaking.

A good Value for the affordable price of a full HD projector.
