Comments: I didn't bother getting a replacement bulb. I just figure it's likely to happen again, and at the price of bulbs it's not worth the risk.

Overheats and eats lamps. 4/7/2011 9:01:23 PM

Pros: Nice picture and good price... if it worked more than 40 hours.

Cons: Overheats and burns out lamp. Good chance you will receive a defective unit and if you are a day over the warranty period Optoma will make you pay.

Overall Review: Instead of enjoying my "movie night" with family and friends I'm writing this review. After the first bulb burnt out after probably 40 hours of use (don't know for sure because you can't check it without a working lamp) I reluctantly shelled out $200 for another lamp. Sure enough the 2nd lamp burnt out with easily less than 40 hours of use and of course, it's beyond the 90 day warranty. Don't expect any real help or sympathy from Optoma's service department. I think they are very much aware that a large percentage of HD-65 projectors were sold defective (just look at all the negative reviews on the internet) but they're only too happy to let you throw more good money after bad. Optoma doesn't stand behind their products. Big disappointment. I hope this review will help others avoid a similar fate.

Amazing Deal! 7/11/2010 6:43:40 PM

Pros: This Projector has an amazing picture 720P. I have this connected to my desktop in my bedroom and am using it as a secondary monitor to watch movies on. After a bit of tweaking I got the picture perfect.

Cons: None

Overall Review: The fans do a great job of getting the heat out and in doing so you might not want to put anything too close to the exhaust port because it might melt or overheat the projector.

Excellent Projector 6/9/2010 6:35:55 PM

Pros: -Great image quality
-excellent color depth
-Brightness effective in combating mild to moderate ambient light
-Works great out of the box, very user friendly
-Excellent Price
-Black levels are above average on basic unpainted blackout cloth screen, excellent after I painted screen with a reflective, neutral gray paint mix
-Dynamic and flexible, works great with movies, xbox 360, tv.

Cons: -Same complaint as others, it gets very hot when in use, and can heat up small sized rooms.
-Limited zoom capabilities, manual focus is annoying since it is ceiling mounted
-Not very compatible with universal remotes.

Overall Review: This is probably one of the best entry level projectors, especially when compared to other PJ's similar in price. This is my first projector, and I have no plans on upgrading anytime soon. It's capabilities are comparable to PJ's in the $1000+ range, definitely worth the money. I'd suggest not trying to build a ceiling mount, its such a hassle trying to get 3mm screws in the States. Also, it would be best to use this in a larger or well ventilated room, unless you are trying to save on your heating bill. However, my compaints are quite small compared to the benefits this projector has to offer. Works great in many different environments, and is probably the best choice for the money. WORTH IT!!

Wonderful 4/2/2010 3:05:13 PM

Pros: This projector is awesome! I have mine at 110inch an the quality is Fantastic.. I have this in my man cave .. My familly hasnt been in the living room seens we have gotten this... My son is 1 years old an he wakes up ever morining an runs str8 to the room to watch his cartoons!! I'm allso using this as my Monitor for my Computer witch is Awesome! Xbox 360 an PS3 look insane on this bad boy too...

My Friend has the MITSUBISHI HC3800 1080p soo I have gotten a chance to compare this with A higher up projector... The Mitsubishi has a sharper Picture more options to play with! I feel that the Optoma is a better buy the quality difference is there but it is just not Double the price worth.. Both of these projector seem to have the Rainbow effect! If you feel that you will not miss the little quality gain of 720p to 1080p then you should buy this ><

Cons: It Gets Hot! Buy a Little fan to blow on it! no built-in speaker..

Overall Review: I cant get my Wife or son out of my Man cave! I bought the Polk 50monitors Fronts/CS1 center/Polk 30monitor surround/PSW505 sub 5.1 speakers really steps up the Home Theater Feel!

bulb blew (again) 2/24/2010 9:01:44 AM

Pros: this throws a great picture (when it works) and it's cheap (for a reason).

Cons: bulb keeps blowing. this is my second. newegg made good and replaced the last. the bulb just blew again, but newegg is no longer on the hook (past the 30 days the allow).

now i'm trying to get a refund from optoma, which i have my doubts i will receive.

Overall Review: the price is tempting, but this thing is not worth it.

it gets HOT!!! i can't stress that enough. you should probably have a fan blasting on it at all times if you want to get any life out of this thing.

save your money (and headaches) and buy a better brand (epson, panasonic, ect).
