Pros:

Man I enjoyed this projector while it lasted. Its super bright, I've been able to adjust the colors to get white on even colored walls, its tiny, and the throw is huge. Currently have it calibrated to a 91' projection screen, but had it about a foot larger when throwing to the wall from the same installation position.

Cons:

NO HORIZONTAL KEYSTONE: Upon purchase I found I was upset it only had vertical keystoning. I previously owned a projector that had horizontal keystoning so you could set the projector off to the side instead of finding a place directly centered across from the screen. I have adapted but it was a feature I will certainly look for specifically next time.

DEAD PIXELS: And now, about a year and a half later after purchase, with 2-6 hours of use a week, I saw my first dead pixel like a bright little star in the corner. In the past two weeks it has multiplied to about seven bright pixels and 3 black pixels all in the top right hand quadrant. I imagine its only going to continue to get worse. Newegg reviews and other websites confirm this happens to DLP projectors on occasion, and there's nothing to be done. Definitely is happening to mine, am kicking myself for not getting Newegg's 2 year warranty.

Other Thoughts:

It had the rainbow effect common to DLP, but I rarely notice unless I'm watching movies with subtitles where my eyes flicker a lot more.

The dying pixels are deeply depressing. I myself can adapt but it sure will be obnoxious to any friends we've invited over for movies. Had we not JUST been gifted an indoor/outdoor projection screen, I'd seriously consider going to a high res flatscreen. Now we'll try to get the most out of it before the whole viewing screen becomes covered in constellations... I really loved the projector up until now.

I gave my parents my old previous LCD projector... though they use it less its been running strong for 4 years on the original bulb. Will probably go back to that technology when this one bites it.
