4 out of 5 eggsWorks great 99% of the time

Pros: I have this set up in a home theater set up. All video is through the HDMI port from a Pioneer VSX-1022 receiver.

The picture is great, and plays with almost no trouble (*see cons)

The room has two large picture windows on the East side of the house which we put blinds over. The projector is bright enough to be seen when the blinds are pulled but still letting some light through.

We use it as our main entertainment system and it sees at least 5-6 hours of use a day when we're home. (My fiancee works from home so sometimes it stays on all day)

Our screen is 110" and the actual projected area is right around 100" at ~11 feet away.

Cons: The only con I've had is that occasionally, maybe once a month, the projector will shut off the video and run the fan like it's overheating, though it doesn't seem that hot, and the conditions haven't changed. Shutting it off and letting it sit for a minute or just pulling the power will bring it back up at which point it continues to run fine.

Other Thoughts: There is some fan noise when it warms up. It doesn't bother me and I rarely even notice it, but for major cine/audiophiles it may be too much, but you're not gonna find better in a sub-$1000 projector.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat projector, but terrible blacks.

Pros: Great Color, Nice options for adjusting pretty much everything.(Keystone, the first time I used it, Made the edges all wavey and weird but that hasnt happened since.) Good throw. (About 120" Left to right from 15-17Ft.) Currently at 700 hours and going strong.

Cons: It can get loud, and if your next to it, it can warm you like a space heater. But I have it on my celing so nether bother me at all.
I didnt notice till I watched a horror movie, Blacks? What
blacks...? You mean that space on the screen where no light is shining? It gets to a point where its like "Well, we cant produce that soft of a color so lets not shine anything at all..." Really, 50% of the time i was unable to see what was scarring/killing people... In a movie I had seen before on a LCD, Very different...

Other Thoughts: This is my first projector, I did alot of research before I bought this and the main reason I settled for this was it was on clearance, Got it + a Celing mount for $599. I use this for my PC, I play MMOs and FPSs and the Color is great! and it is very crisp and clear.
I have used this for my PC, 360, Orig Xbox, N64 and SNES and I have loved every second of it! If it continues to hold up, I would Def consider purchasing another in the future for a replacment.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Reliable

Pros: Inexpensive for such a high resolution projector. Good video color (not too impressive though), but otherwise rather sharp video quality.

Cons: Somewhat loud noise from the fan from time to time (the fan speed various). But the biggest problem is that after 5 months of light use (less than 80 hours), the projector just went dead. Just a few seconds of fan sound after pushing the power button, then nothing... no light at all.
I am going to ship the projector to Acer at my own expenses and I hope that they can fix it and do not charge me hundres of dollors.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Control

Pros: Affordable, 24hz 1080P, dual input, light weight

Cons: I had this projector for 4 months, ran it for a total of 51 hours when the projector completely died due to color wheel failure.

This is an integral part that should last 3000+ hours. This was quite clearly a quality control issue and my projector obviously a lemon.

I never got any response from the Acer online submission form (despite an admission from phone support that they did receive my request).

Acer does not pay for shipping so you will be stuck with the bill. The last Acer product I purchased was a laptop which was dead on arrival. Acer even then insisted I pay to ship it back so I contacted NewEgg for a complete return/refund.

Other Thoughts: Acer is just not a reliable company. The quality control on their products is very poor. I cannot recommend anything they make to anyone for this reason.

4 out of 5 eggsImpress your friends!

Pros: This projector looks fantastic with my bluray and directTV box. supports 1080i/p. very bright projection, allows for watching during the daytime as long as the light is indirect.

Cons: No built in audio, not a biggie i hooked my cable box and bluray up to a 2.1 speaker set i had laying around. I had to purchase a digial audio to analog converter because I do not have a surround sound system with a receiver. The lens does not pivot it is fixed so you will have to place it on something with the correct height when aiming it at your wall. You will not be able to mount it on your ceiling.

Other Thoughts: I had a new years eve and a superbowl party. Both my family and friends are very impressed with the 90" screen I am able to get with a 10' throw distance. Very little "rainbow" effect due to only 1 dlp processor but its hardly noticeable unless your a projector snob. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a great entry level projector for a small home theater in their basement or living room. you cant beat the price! i paid 699 for it during cyber monday deals.
I say indirect light is ok but anything like a lamp near the projection wall will fade the image, duh. I have projected this onto a brown wall and an off white textured wall, both look great! I'd recommend due to the brightness not projecting on a white wall but have not tested plain white. I have not tested any other throw distance other than 10' which yields a 88-90" screen although i believe it can project much larger than that.

4 out of 5 eggsGet lots of compliments

Pros: Great color, low noise fan, bright enough that I can watch with a room lamp on. My 100 inch diag. screen makes other TVs look tiny. Friends love it and tell me so.

Cons: Does turn off on it's own every few weeks while in use. Makes a beeping sound and is cold to the touch, attempting to turn back on gives more beeps but no lamp. Fix is to unplug the power cord before turning back on.

Other Thoughts: This is my second Acer projector, first one started getting dead pixels shortly after the 1 year warranty expired. Purchased the extended warranty on this one.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Image quality is great, have it projected against a painted screen that gives me minimal glare even with daylight in the windows. As good of a picture as my 1080p hdtv.

Cons: Wish it had other projection angles.

Other Thoughts: Projects at an upward angle, I recommend that if you are going to mount it high, definitely go with a ceiling mount.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent entry level 1080p

Pros: - Price: At $700 after discount, it's a solid value.

- Very bright. Picture is still excellent with a 60 watt bulb on in the room, or a shade or two open during the day. Really great for sports or when you don't want that "cave" feeling when friends are over. Conversely, in a fully dark room you can tweak the levels down nicely for a very rich picture.

- two hdmi inputs.

- Fairly sharp picture - not the sharpest I've seen but it does a good job.

- low lag - good for gaming.

- Fairly small, square and easy to handle for portability. Not some "streamlined" shape that threatens to drop out of your hand when the wind blows.

Cons: - Fan can be annoying when dynamic black is enabled. DB causes the fan to spin up and down depending on the scene and thus you can never really tune out the fan noise. I turned off dynamic black for this reason.

- Black levels typical of this class of projector (not a con, necessarily, but this projector does not stand out in its class for black levels)

- Definite rainbow effect. I can't recommend this projector at all for those who are sensitive to the rainbow effect. It's quite noticeable.

- Some noticeable re-synching during playback (for example, when playing the previews on a blu ray, which are recorded in 1080p/60, and then the player switches to 1080p/24 for the main feature, the projector will drop out for about 5 - 10 seconds to re-synch). Doesn't bother me, but may bother some.

- First attempt at ceiling mounting resulted in vertical lines all across the screen, presumably from pressure from the mount points. I ended up making a mount plate out of 1/2" thick plexi to ensure pressure was uniform and the problem disappeared. This projector may be more "tap sensitive" than others.

- Picture calibration controls are more akin to a business class projector.

- VERY annoying: any subtle tweak to a preset mode (cinema, presentation, gaming, etc) switches you into User mode and it overwrites whatever custom setup you had before (no way to save multiple presets). I had User mode dialed for films in complete darkness and then >poof< it was gone five seconds later. I literally have to write down my custom values and apply them every time in this situation.

Other Thoughts: Happy with the purchase overall. I hope the Rainbows go away some after more break in but I can live with them. Great image pop. Fills a 100-inch screen nicely.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Satisfied

Pros: To start this off I'll just say that I am not a major cinephile. I don't care if I'm not getting the 'full 1080p with blah de blah de blah'. I just want the picture to look good, and that's what I get from this projector.

The picture is crisp, I can watch it with the lights on, or with the window open. The only time it gets washed out is when the morning sun comes straight in the window (but that's what blinds are for).

Cons: Every once in a while the fan kicks on and can be kinda loud. It's not so bad that you can't just turn the volume up a bit, but it can kinda interrupt the mood if you're looking to get deeply engrossed in your film.

5 out of 5 eggsVery economical 1080p projector with fantastic video reproduction

Pros: Fantastic picture, widely adjustable brightness, great color reproduction, great black levels and good contrast, small form factor, lightweight, multiple HDMI inputs, and reliable with long lamp life. The projector is a great bargain for a 1080p projector. Using it on a 125” screen and it looks fantastic. Still bright, even in eco mode. No rainbow effect that I’ve been able to see and I have over 100 hours on the bulb and it’s still great. Tried MythTV from a PC, PS3, PC gaming and all have looked good. White casing blends well with projector mount and ceiling. No speakers, but that be a waste in a home theater setup. Focus is highly stable and I haven’t needed to adjust over the last 4 months.

Cons: Plastic casing is small, meaning cooling is limited. The fan is audible if the receiver is put on mute, but I don’t find it noticeable or annoying when watching a movie or TV.
