Excellent after a week


I did get an extra discount on this by purchasing during Newegg's 'Black November' sale; the price I paid was around $550. But if you're in the market for a low cost HD projector and this model has the right throw ratio, buy it.

Bright and Functional


From the first power up this machine has functioned well. In our home theater setting, it produces a 6x6 view and is very bright in the daylight, so that windows that once were draped are now left open. It is very easy to operate.

Bought this for use with movies and some Halloween effects. Worked well but not much better than the inexpensive 3m/roku projector we have. Overall a good but not great product.This product has... Easy setup
