Summary: My previous projector died (Optoma EP747) and this projector is much better. I loved my EP747 when I purchased it 5-6 years ago so I am very happy I found one at a reasonable price and it outperforms my previous one.
Summary: I have not tested this projector and may never will but having owned two Vivitek projectors in the past, I can say that they offer excellent quality imaging even with high ambient light. Presently I own an Optoma 3D projector only because at the time I could not find a true 3D Vivitek.
Summary: Having had no previous experience of projectors my point of view is limited, however I do know a good picture when I SEE IT. Its bright, enough to paint a grey screen which helps the blacks deepen a little. It is generally better than I expected in all areas.
Summary: Personal Experience the projector is awesome. beautiful picture amazing all around. its a purchase i made that i feel great about. Problems the manual is extrememly vague, no set up chart as far as measurements.
Summary: I bought this item instead of television and i was a bit worried about it is good enough. it is awesome item and use it everyday. and most of my friends jelous about my little projector. i love it thanks a lot I bought this item instead of television and i was a bit worried about it is good enough.
Summary: I purchased this for use at a company I was working for (they paid for it of course) to use in a conference room. Absolutely great picture quality, 1080p resolution is very useful and helps future-proof the projector. Came with all the ports we needed, and was incredibly bright!
Summary: This is definitely worth the money. I seriously love this little gem.
Pros: I really love this projector. I was hesitant about DLP projectors and color wash, but that isn't a problem at all. And 3000 Lumens is fantastically bright and looks very pretty, even in a 2nd Floor Apartment with the sun shining in the windows in the middle of the day.
Cons: The only con that I can find is the Remote IR codes. NO ONE has remote IR codes that actually work on my TiVo remote or my PIONEER A/V Receiver remote.
Summary: I have had this projector for four weeks and it works like a champ. The noise level is average, but everything else about the projector is top notch. My image is 129" diagonal and the 1080p/1080i image is crystal clear.
