So bright, and it's HD. What's not to like. I can watch it a fairly bright room and it still looks good. I got it at around 500 and it was definitely worth it, but I know the price has been fluctuating.

Very pleased July 26 2012

Purchased this projector through work for public presentations. It works like a champ! Very easy to connect to a laptop, nice bright image, and VERY quick cool-down time (about 10 secs) to turn it off. Very happy with it.

Could not be happier! July 25 2012
By Casey - Published on
I have owned multiple projectors in the past (Viewsonic, Epson, benQ) used specifically for a home theater. This Optoma Projector blows all the competition out of the water. The projector itself is well manufactured, the projected display is extremely crisp, the colors are vivid, and the sharpness is unsurpassed. My friends are all amazed when they come over and we play games or watch a movie on the projector-- even the second and third time! Beyond the product being fantastic- the support is great as well. One small hiccup with the projector and Optoma sent a new projector with no hassle.

great projector Dec 18 2012

This is my second projector and I love the quality of the image and the features. I did not want to spend over $500 on a projector and was a little concerned that the image was not going to be as good as one of the higher priced projectors. I am happy to say that this model exceeded my expectations. I use it mainly for watching HDTV, movies, and XBOX 360. My kids absolutely love watching movies on it, it's like we are at the theater in the comfort of our own home. I would definitely order another Optoma when it's time to upgrade.

I have had this projector for about 1 year and it is a good basic projector. Easy to use. My office loans it to our member churches and no one has had any problem using it without me showing them how.
Good But not for PC Sept. 21 2013

Everything on this projector is pretty nice. the x and Y axis shifters are awful because it doesn't shift the picture it cuts off one side and just projects light on the other side so you end up with half a picture. After we got it mounted and centered properly it plays movies and games brilliantly. But don't for a second think you'll be able to read text from a PC on this. I have it mounted 20 feet away from my screen and even at 1080p I cant read a single word on google or my desktop for my life. Not even when i walk right up next to the screen. for movies. this is a great choice. don't waste your time if you're planning on using it for anything else.
