I like it

Pros: Great picture, especially with HD channels/content, and anything from my standalone bluray player.

I always thought 3d was a gimmick and I still think it is. The family likes it though. 3d from my htpc is bad, but from standalone bluray player it's excellent.

It has a 120hz mode in 720p. Tried it with pc and gaming, pretty nice.

Cons: Newegg extended warranty is worthless. I bought it because the bulb is expensive. Finally need a new bulb and apparently the warranty Newegg sells does not cover the bulb. Why else would I buy the extended warranty?

Nice racket, I wish I could sell extended warranties for projectors. How many people assumed it was a good idea because of the 200 dollar bulb?

First one crapped out within a month, luckily within Newegg replacement terms. The replacement has been working like a champ ever since.

Other Thoughts: It's the only projector I've ever used. Also, the first time I've had a such a large display.

I have a cheap 135" screen

Used daily, sometimes rather heavily.

The bulb still hasn't actually died, but the projector now warns on startup that the bulb has exceeded it's lifetime.

My standalone bluray player has a much better image than my htpc. I don't understand why. Even 3d is a lot better with that thing.

3d sucks with my PC. I tried hard to figure it out. Games, movies, different 3d software and media players, made no difference. I cannot get 3d to look anywhere near as good as it does on my standalone bluray player. 2d contend is perfectly OK, but even that looks better on the bluray player. I guess it does some fancy upscaling that my PC somehow can't come close to doing.

I might never buy a projector again. Even though it is used very frequently and is cool, the bulb is way too expensive to keep replacing. Heck, I even wonder if I'll be able to find a replacement one day.

My First Returned Product

Pros: 1. Picture quality
2. Easy to set up.
3. Very quiet.

Cons: 1. Broke within 6 months.
2. No auto-focus.
3. Customer service under par.

Other Thoughts: I bought this projector in March, 2012. This is the only projector with 1080P, 3D, and price tag under $1500 on the market. It has good review at Newegg, which give me confidence. I was pleasantly surprised by its image quality. I hardly hear the fan humming. It has nice on-screen-display menu, but does not have auto-focus feature that is nice at setup stage. I have to manually tune the focus. I have no problem with it because I only need to to do it once. I don't switch input source back and forth.

I have not used it very often since I got it. In June I had some problem with the image. Sometime there were horizontal lines at both the top and bottom of the screen. I had to power-cycle the projector to make them disappear. It got worse as time went on. At thanksgiving party the projector failed completely. The image was distorted. After the power-cycle, the 'Optoma' logo at startup was distorted beyond recognition as well. I couldn't even read the OSD menu.

I sent an e-mail to Optoma tech support, and got a case number automatically assigned. I have to call customer service because I have not got any response in two days. I did not have to wait on the phone for long. The guy gave me a go-ahead to apply for RMA. I filed a RMA request online along with order confirmation from Newegg. Optoma promises 24-hour response time, but I had to call again 3 days later to get RMA number. I am a little bit disappointed. The projector is on the way to Optoma USA. Hopefully they would fix the problem.

I would not recommend this product.

Dead pixel

Pros: Amazing picture quality and 3D. On a big enough screen, you'll never really need to go to the theatre again.

Cons: Puts out a lot of heat, and a DEAD PIXEL?! Yes, after a little over a month of mild to moderate use, I have a dead pixel.

Other Thoughts: Must be my luck because after all the research and reviews I read before buying, I never once came across a dead pixel complaint. Sucks for me.

Great Picture

Pros: Great Picture! Easy Set Up! I was worried about going from a 65inch LCD to a Projector but after reading the reviews I thought I would try it. Boy am I glad I did!!! I love this projector!!! The picture is amazing can't wait to see 3D

Cons: Poor Picture when the lights are on. I'm guessing most projectors are though...
