Awesome

 

was looking for a second tv / monitor for gaming......ran across this and will never even think about owning another tv again, i could care less if i have to buy a new bulb once a year, its more than worth it.

instead of measuring my screen by inches, i now measure it in feet. Playing BF3 and WOW, and it feels like i could step right into the game. Graphics are even better than on my 32 inch 720p lcd

the remote is a pain to figure out

Very Pleased!

 

I hope my bulb lasts its full life. That's a cost you have to think about in the long run.

A TV the size of my wall! I really didn't need this but I'm a sucker for technology. None of my friends have one and I randomly came across a good deal on another website that got me interested in these. I did my research a little and finally...

After using a while it will make your 37" Tv look like 19". Spoils you a little

I love my unit.

 

I have used this projector for almost a year as my living room TV. It averages about 4 to 5 hrs of use per day with no problems. It has a bright, crystal clear, high definition, 10ft x 6ft picture. I watch my DirecTV services, DVDs, and Wii on it. All...

The remote has a poor set up but who cares. I just use it to turn it on and off

Black Optoma Black Optoma

 

I watched Planet Earth last night on a 13' screen. THIRTEEN FEET. I ran out of tape measure with my 12' tape!! YEAHHHH if you are thinking about getting this, GET IT!! Why buy a TV for twice as much? My 46" Sharp Aquos from Newegg now looks like a...

1080p, Bright, loud enough speaker, crisp enough to not need a screen, plug and play. Pre-calibrated settings for cinema, game, etc. I never heard it make a sound. It stays pretty cool, great product. The packing!!!! WOW just the packing was sweet. You...

Remote is kinda dumb looking with buttons that could be sized differently. Whatever. Who cares. Only con is that I am at work right now instead of at home, projecting glorious scenes

Great Projector for the price

 

Good Cheap projector, has high enough refresh rate for active shutter 3d applications

Its an inexpensive HD projector. Its not the sharpest or brightest thing around, but for the money you can't do much better. I use it for my Xbox 360 and have taken it to LAN parties and it is the center of attention. The bag it comes with makes me...

Would be nice to be native 1080, but for someone like me 720 is fine on my 76" screen. DLP rainbow effect can be a problem for some people, I got used to it and don't notice it any more. My other friends never noticed it

Fantastic picture for price

 

Like the title says...buy it...best switch for the money.

I have this projector and have a blu ray, xbox 360, DVR, PC setup on it. The color and picture quality is way above what I was expecting. I have a 120" 16x10 image from just over 6 feet away. Definately worth the value

No zoom! This makes it hard to mount if using a screen since you have to play around with the projector location to get it to fit the screen perfectly. Took me about 2 days of fussing to get it exact. Worth it in the end

Great Picture

 

3d is not as immersive as a 3d tv, but this projector can make anything have a 3d effect that adds depth to the picture.

This projector has a great picture and gives me a 105 16:9 screen from 3 feet away. It's picture is awesome on my custom screen using the bear Silver Screen paint. I run it on my PlayStation 3 and a Gaming computer, both threw HDMI. Colors are vivid...

3d only works in 720p, so I can't watch blueray in 3d. Not a big deal considering the HD makes it look like you could step into the movie anytime

Excellent

 

I could say that it feels a litttle light weight, but then it makes it eaasier to transport.

just out of the box, plugged in my PS3, powered it up and it was a go! I was playing via internet with a clarity and image unparelled by any regular TV. I placed it approximately 6' from the wall (Blue tinged wall) and the picture was amazing. My...

None so far

Works great out of the box

 

For the price this appeared to be a very good gaming/movie projector. For both of these it worked great out of the box. This is my first projector, not counting powerpoint at work.

This is my first projector, and I am very pleased with the results so far. After opening the box, I plugged in an HDMI cable that I hooked up to my laptop and almost immediately had a DVD playing. The projector automatically detected the laptop and I...

Still haven't gotten World of Warcraft to work, but I haven't put much effort into it yet. Haven't tried any other 3d type games - I'll update after I have a chance to work on it
