5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy so far!

Pros: Decent Black levels and excellent colors.
Beautiful image on 77" projector screen.
Easy to set up and get going.
Vertical automatic angle adjustment.
720p looks as good as my 32" 1080p LCDTV.

Totally worth! :)

Cons: Gets hot (Makes me worry about burning out the lens, but they are built to get hot so I may be worrying for nothing)

Awkward screw feet adjustments, its a bit of an inconvenience trying to get them just right. Probably better off just using small blocks of something to get them to the heights you need.

Indirect sunlight during day kinda washes the image out (Its still watchable, but blacks suffer the most), looks best in totally dark environment, but this is to be expected of a budget home theater projector. Business projectors are built to be visible in bright rooms.

Other Thoughts: This is an amazing projector. I did a *LOT* of research before deciding on this projector, and it was totally worth it. I am surprised at how clear the image is for being 720p on 77", it honestly looks as good as my 32" 1080p LCDTV (In the dark).

Keep in mind the quality is also determined by your screen, and the quality of video you feed the projector. Some people list not being 1080p as a con, but honestly this projector looks good enough that it doesn't matter to me. Keep in mind that unless you are right up on the screen, the differences will not be that noticeable (some people may be more sensitive than others with 720p vs 1080p).

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage Products- DLP Failure after 4 years

Pros: If you want a worthless object in 4 years, this is the company for you.

Cons: Bought the Acer H5360 3D-DLP Projector 4 years ago.
Samr thing: 720P, 3D ready, etc. 4 Years of Home Theater use.

Now it is completely worthless. DLP chip has failed. Black and white dots all over my screen. Not worth it to repair it.

Do not buy.

Other Thoughts: Fail!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Projector

Pros: I've been using this as my home theater projector for a couple months now and I'm really happy with it. The color and brightness are great. I mostly watch things in semi to full darkness and also use a separate sound system, so I can't comment on it's usefulness as a travel presentation projector.

Cons: The rainbowing is noticable to me, though everyone else I've had over to watch movies doesn't see it. That being said, it's not a deal breaker to me. I've somehow adjusted to the rainbowing and it's not as noticable as when I first got it. I really have to work to see it now. The fan can be a little loud when it gets hot, but it's not anything out of acceptable ranges.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck.

Pros: Picture.
Price..
MHL HDMI is pretty cool

Cons: Fan noise *may* be a distraction for some. The projector can struggle on some dark scenes. More inputs would be appreciated.

Other Thoughts: I got the okay to buy this in the Spring from my wife to have outdoor movie nights for the neighborhood. Worked great. I thought while I have it I may as well mount if in the play room where the kids used an old 42" panny plasma.

Now they have 104" of gaming and movie goodness. As O mentioned in the cons, it struggles with darker scenes and the fan may bother some. It doesn't me, with half decent speakers it's going to drown that out.

I am not going to dock any eggs for the cons I suggested because this is an entry level home theater projector. To have improvements in these areas there are more expensive units that are available.

The MHL input is a nice touch. I can hook my Galaxy s4 up to it and have it mirror my phone. Very cool.

Wish it had an optical out so I could send the sound back to the receiver.

Great projector for the price, which for me was $399

5 out of 5 eggsamazing

Pros: I wanted a project for a long time, so after doing tons of research on them, i thought that the "rainbow effect" would bother me. so when i first bought a projector, i went this the epson home cinema 730hd, which is an LCD projector and supposedly has no rainbow effects. HOWEVER, being an LCD, the black levels were really really bad, so i returned it and purchased this one at a very nice price. the price from 720p to 1080p was too big of a gap for me to jump so i went with this projector and dont think i could be happier. it truely is amazing, and I can barely see the "rainbow effect" only if i look for it, otherwise, its unnoticeable. If you are thinking about a projector, I recommend doing the research and getting one, they are AWESOME!!!! you will not be disappointed with this machine for the price, it cannot be beat

Cons: not 1080

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome entry level GAMING projector

Pros: 144hz 3D, HDML with MHL, decent response time, bright enough for a family room, & good contrast for the price.

This projector will do true 120hz at 720p resolution! I know it's not 1080p but at 720p. even with a mid-range card. you can turn on ALL the eye candy. Most of the Xbox One games are still 720P and TV signals are still broadcast at 720p/1080i so it's a great football projector as well.

Cons: 1 yr warranty, not 1080P, no lens shift

Other Thoughts: I picked this projector up for under 4 bills with a promo code. For that price, this projector simply cannot be beat! The family loves it, even the wife was mondo impressed while watching GoT and the NBA finals on it.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent

Pros: I caught this on sell so I didn’t pay the full retail price. Even if I had paid full price I would have been more than happy. It looks best in a dark room but still looks great with the lights are on as long as the light is not directly in front on the projector. I am projecting about a 120 inch screen and the picture is amazing. The 3d looks good too, especially if its and actual 3d movie (HSBS). I would highly recommend this projector for the money. The built in speaker is not very loud, but why would you want to watch a movie on a large screen, and listen to it on a mono built in speaker?

Cons: none worth mentioning

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I sit about 12 feet from the screen. The image is around 100 inches wide and from that distance looks very clear. It is very bright- the room doesn't need to be very dark in order to see well. I don't notice the noise at all. Has an HDMI input.

Cons: 720p. For my setup, 1080p is not worth the bump in price but if you are wanting a very large screen, a 1080p projector would be better. At this price though, this projector is great- I can't see the pixels from my couch.

Other Thoughts: Great product, I was very impressed by the image quality for such a large screen.
