Pros: Fantastic for the price!
Good image quality.
High resolution for the price.
Cons: Long throw? But was aware of this going in.
Other Thoughts: I really am extremely happy with this, this is my 4th projector, I've had one LCD, one CRT and this is my second ViewSonic DLP. The color of this one really blew me away, the last one I had did not have the 6 segment color wheel and it seems to make a big difference. My previous projector also did not have HDMI which I also think makes a big difference over VGA.
3D is not quite as impressive as it is on my Vizio 32" Passive 3D TV, this was the same as with my last DLP so I'm wondering if maybe it's just that DLP Link 3D doesn't look as good as Passive, or it could just due to the size difference between 32" and 120", not sure.
All and all though for the price is really is a fantastic buy. Hook it up via HDMI, set the color mode to Movie and prepare to be impressed.
Pros: Really fantastic image quality.
3rd Party ink for this model is available, fairly cheap and of better then average quality.
A touch faster and was cheaper then my last Canon Pixma which was about a year old.
I didn't have any trouble with the wireless connection or disc printing using Nero Cover Designer(other then the usual playing with the alignment settings in Nero). Prints really beautiful discs when setup properly.
Cons: No rear tray is a minor annoyance but the underside tray holds ~30-40 sheets so it's not that big of a deal really.
Uses a far amount of ink, and I don't mean it drinks it too fast, it literally uses more then is necessary. I needed to set the light/dark setting to somewhere around -20 or the colors were much stronger then in the original image. The colors look much more vibrant and rich but much darker and less accurate and image accuracy is important for what I do with it so I needed to turn it down to get good results but now they look really fantastic. This was the same using both Canon and 3rd Party inks.
Other Thoughts: When I was researching this, the biggest complaint I heard was the lack of rear tray and I think the reason for that was that there really isn't any other downside to this printer and even that is a minor one really. I print around 10-20 8.5x11 photos a day so I need to refill the tray every couple of days so unless you print hundreds of sheets a day it's really not a big deal and if you do print hundreds of sheets per day this isn't the printer for you anyway since I would be surprised if it could hold up under that kind of workload for more then a week or two.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought 4 of these and they work great, burned about 10 blu-rays and about 10 dvd so far with coasters even with junky media.
These also support changing the booktype for DVD+R so that's a plus too in a Blu-ray burner!
8mb Cache as compared to 4mb on most in this price point!
Cons: None really, not for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
