We love the unit -- use it mainly for movies at night. I especially love the fast auto poweroff, the auto-signal detect, and the ability to turn down the brightness to conserve bulb life (It is still bright enough to use during the day in a semi-darkened room). The colors and contrast is great (when set to movie mode).I have not noticed any of the "rainbow" effects during movies that can happen with dlp projectors -- though it is easy to create the effect by rapidly waving your hand in front of the projector while on, I have yet to see the effect during movies and video games. I'd definitely recommend it. Note that we don't use blueray yet, so the 720p resolution is far more than needed for DVD quality movies, and I couldn't justify spending 4 times the amount for a good 1080p projector.BTW, we use composite video via VGA to get the best video picture. So I'd also recommend ordering an inexpensive composite to vga cable. As ours is ceiling mounted, I ordered:1. 25ft SVGA cable (about $11)2. 6ft VGA Male to 3RCA (Component Video) Male Cable (about $4)3. VGA Coupler / Gender Changer Female-Female (to connect the above cables together) ($1.50)Absolutely no need to waste money on expensive cables...
I was skeptical at first but decided to try the product out. I have to say I don't regret my purchase and am very glad I bought it. I've hooked it up to my computer, my DVD player, my Xbox 360, and my Wii all work extremely well. It's made my viewing and playing experience much more enjoyable that clarity is amazing as is the brightness I have it set up against a 70 inch Screen just perfect. I did get special cables to hook up the 360 and Wii, and different audio speakers but all together that was no more than 15 dollars. If you know what your doing the product will work well.
Reading the spec for this projector, it sounded great with excellent brightness, ease of use and low noise. However, it was very disappointing when it came to clarity.
For the price, it has excellent quality. So good, I don't see a reason to spend more.
I turned it on and it worked, automatically finding the source. Very bright for the price. Great color. A tad loud. This is far from a short throw projector though. For a 6' wide picture you'll need 15' of distance.
