Acer K130 1280 x 800 300 ANSI Lumens (Standard), 240 ANSI Lumens (ECO) DLP Projector with Speaker 10,000:1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small, HDMI input, VGA input, fairly bright, WXGA, much bigger than a flatscreen, fans aren't too loud.

Cons: Not bright enough, but that's to be expected, no audio out, slight focus issue, weak speaker, keystone not exact

Other Thoughts: WXGA looks pretty good even though it's not quite 1080p. Square diamond pixels.
The brightness is pretty good, but the blacks get pretty washed out, though I am projecting onto a light yellow wall. The color correction feature works very well. With the lights on, presentations/cartoons still look nice, but dark colors are pretty awful. This could be because I don't have a screen yet though.
The keystone is slightly off a lot of the time, it's not too noticeable, but the sides are still slightly off most of the time with the auto keystone.
No audio out, so the input has to have audio out if you want good sound, which shouldn't be a problem with a laptop, but the Xbox I have doesn't have any other audio out, so I have to use the projector speaker through HDMI. It's bad quality, but it gets the job done if you're not an audiophile and there's not too much ambient noise.
Had all the lights out, a 96" image looks great on a textured yellow wall. With the light on in my room, which makes the room pretty bright and is shining on the wall space I use as a screen, a 6 foot image is still very good if you don't need lots of dark colors. Cartoons look very nice, as would presentations. With the sun coming in, it doesn't perform very well, but if you get an LED it should be because you want energy efficiency, not for the brightness.
I didn't really notice the fan even with the projector right next to me. One issue I did have, however, was one of the LEDs, I think the red one, powering off at one point. This triggered the unit to shutdown, and it was perfectly fine on restart. :) That's good! I had it with the back near a wall, with the HDMI cable input separating it from the wall, so that might have caused it to overheat, we'll see if it happens again in the future.

JVC HA-RX500 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Full Size Headphone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Long cord
Pretty sturdy

Cons: Long cord

Other Thoughts: I've had these for almost a year already, and I'm using them to listen to music before I fall asleep. The long cord gets tangled a lot, but it's long, so it doesn't matter anyway. They just get tangled too, not knotted, so that's a plus. A lot of headphones I've owned are cheap and fall apart quickly, but these are good quality and I haven't had any problems.

4 out of 5 eggs Good Headphones 12/07/2011

This review is from: JVC HA-RX500 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Full Size Headphone

Pros: Pretty good sound quality (to me, anyway)
Haven't broken in any way yet
Single connection to headphones makes them tangle less
Long cord

Cons: Long cord does get tangled, but it's so long anyway you can just leave the knot in for a while. Also, If you want to put your MP3 player in your pocket and walk, the cord is really, really long.

Other Thoughts: My previous Panasonic headphones broke at the connector after a few years of use, so I got these. They seem like they should hold up pretty well and are of decent quality without too much hard use, and since I just use them to listen to music before I fall asleep, the cord doen't get in my way, making them quite a good purchase.
