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.
Excerpt: Just as great is the dual HDMI input. It provides great flexibility.<br /><br />I purchased 2 of these bad boys for an small auditorium that can be split into 2 rooms. I ceiling mounted the projectors and configured HDMI cabling with a splitter so a single laptop with HDMI out connects to both D950HD's simultaneously. The image output is fantastic. Audio output is decent too.
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. It seems that this is not a 3D projector either but while I owned Vivitek projectors I was quite pleased with their quality.
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. Setup is easy and intuitive as well as having personal preferences for individual users.
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.
Excerpt: This is a great projector! I ceiling mounted it and it looks great! Very quiet. A couple of things to be aware of (but not really negatives): <br />- This is a desktop projector so the image when the projector is level is higher than the projector (or lower is ceiling mounted). This offset is not too bad, I am shooting from 12' away and the image offset is about 12".
Pros: Clear Display, Easy To Use, Quality Construction, Quiet, Small Footprint

Vivitek D950HD 3000 Lumen 1080p Office and Home Theater Projector
4 December 2012
Summary: I must admit, the quality of the product is superb, no wonder so many European people purchased it, me being one. After two months research I decided to purchase this Vivitek projector. I am pretty happy with this product, the only issue I have is the remote control, it runs the batteries within an hour and it gets pretty hot in the opposite side of where the remote control keys are. I have to either exchange it or create my own remote control...
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! I was expecting to have to dim the lights and close some windows (very well lit room), but the projector put off enough light that all this was just optional in the end.
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.
