i love this thing!!! my living room is now a movie theatre with a 92" widescreen. Make sure you can control light from outside as the picture disappears in natural light so i had to get some curtains that stopped ALL light.

Great price. I got it for about $400 on

The only thing stopping me from giving it a 5 was that the in built speaker is horrible. That and the quality could be a little better. But make no mistake, this is a fantastic HD projector.

Comes with a carrying case and is easily portable and fairly light.

Recommend it for those that want a projector for less than $500

I purchased this projector instead of a wide screen TV for use in Mexico. It surpased my expectations with it's clarity and ease of use.With my laptop it does great even in only subdued light. I may buy another for my consulting business

i set this up as soon as i got it, being super psyched! before this i had purchased the shift3 lightblast entertainment projector and was sorely disappointed. therefore, i decided to up my price range a little. i bought this for around 200$ and it was worth it. currently i have this set up approximately 12 feet from my screen. my screen is 5' across & tall.

it has most any hook-up you could want.
it projects well enough even with a couple lights on, but projects amazingly in a dark room. it has better picture quality (both sharpness and color) than my old TV and my laptop combined!
it's easily set-up and you barely have to do a thing.
the warranty is amusing to read (the projector isn't covered if it is wrecked in a casualty... =P ).
the bulb is easily replaced.
it has both focus & zoom and both are easy and work very well.
it looks good.
it's pretty quite.
it has a remote.

it kicks the fans on immediately and constantly runs hot, although this is a trend i've seen with every projector.
the sound output port is rather pathetic and insufficient to hook up to something such as surround sound, but there are ways around this (don't put sound into it and run the sound directly to your speakers)
it says it has a built in speaker system, it has a volume control, but the speakers don't work the best...
it needs time to cool down after using it (the fans run for an extra 2-3 min. after it's off).

Ive got to say, i was a tad skeptical at buying this projector. for a little under 400 bucks, i didnt know what i really was getting. I was getting mixed details about the projector, saying it was a xvga, then it says its a 720p projector. I didnt know if the 720p was a lie. Well, the truth is, natively this projector is a 4:3 aspect ratio xvga projector. But boy does it know how to push its limits! I attached a blue ray player via hdmi to this bad boy and it looked GREAT! The quality of the projector is really really nice in my opinion. not only does it have the hdmi port but it has vga, and a composite, and a sound in and out port too. I love this projector and watch all my movies on it.

It says its a 70in projector but im telling you with the 2800 lumens it has, you can go larger and STILL have a great image! i was projecting onto a 80in screen and it looked great and it could keep getting larger if i only had a larger screen!

i say, get this, you dont need the 600 dollar 720p projectors, i think this one does just fine!!!!!

The zoom lens helps a tad, but its hard to get a large picture when the screen is close. You would need to tape on a wide angle lens to do that, which i have done :) HAPPY SCREENING!

Great for everyday use June 23 2012

I use this projector everyday for my PS3, Wii, Computer (movies and games), and Digital HiDef cable and it looks awesome on everything. Bright at night and during the day, and it goes past the 70 inch size. We have it mounted to the ceiling about 14-15 feet from the wall and it goes up to 130 inches without distortion. You don't have to look at it dead on either to see it you can see it from all angles clearly. The only bad thing I have noticed about it was that the audio out plug is bad it sounds all crackly and distorted but if you have your own surround sound system and you just hook up the video signal cords you will be fine.

Good Product -- NO LENS COVER May 13 2013
By Nicholas Goodroad - Published on
I ordered my OPTOMA projector because it offered high quality and versatility in terms of brightness (2800 lumens), and input formats. A nice bonus that I hadn't seen before is the VGA out, which I will use to string together multiple displays for my installations.

HOWEVER, What is sorely missing is a lens cover. Many other manufacturers' designs include a slider that opens/closes a lens cover or at least includes a removable lens cover. This had neither. It must be an oversight, because the TS551 comes with a travel bag which suggests that it is meant for portability.
