Awesome Projector


Newegg had good shipping time, UPS took too long. An extra day or two past their "3 day guarantee." I would suggest getting a KVM switch from newegg, allows you to plug in several devices for a very decent price.

Great price for high quality acer project. Perfect viewing on my XBox 360 with both HD settings and regular T.V. Comes with everything you need to work the machine including component adapter. Super sharp picture...looks like a huge TV hanging up on...

Not too dark!


While this projector does not support HDTV per se, it's still a great deal for watching movies or gaming as well as for presentations a la Powerpoint. The integrated laser pointer in the remote is a nifty feature.

The replacement bulbs are somewhat steep, but I assume this is the price to be paid to get such high light output. The projector makes very little fan noise but does generate a lot of hot air; it will heat up a small room in a hurry

I bought this projector for movies and Xbox. It did a great job with Halo2 but I tried a couple movies and the dark sceenes were unwatchable. I tried many different contrast and brightness settings with no results. I am sad to say I had to return the...
