Other Thoughts:

I am revisiting my review 2 years after purchase with my experiences.

This was a fantastic projector for the price and served me well for almost exactly 2 years, a good investment. I never had to buy a new bulb even with pretty heavy use, though the brightness was obviously diminished by the end of its tenure. This projector went with me on two cross-country moves and spent a year in a bachelor pad which was a smoking environment. It also was moved around quite a bit to different venues. The projector held up and functioned very well, except for the two following issues...

11 months after purchase, both the fan and color wheel started acting up, causing the projector to automatically shut down. Acer replaced these parts for free as it was still in warranty, and their service only took about a week total (including shipping times).
after another year, the fan started acting up yet again. Since it was out of Acer warranty, I sent it to ServiceNet (I had purchased the 2 year extended plan) who refunded the purchase price with basically no-questions-asked.

Bottom line- this is a nice projector and the price is certainly right, I still rate it 4 Eggs. I would certainly recommend it both to people looking for an "entry-level" projector and to those who have owned projectors in the past but who are not looking to spend the big bucks. Unless you have owned a really nice projo in the past, you will not likely be disappointed.
But I would advise against using it in dusty or smoking environments. Expect to have some issues with the moving parts (fan & color wheel) and definitely get the extended ServiceNet warranty!
