Real piece of junk

 

none

This projector barely had 15 hours on it and the "Fan Fail" warning comes up and Acer will not even talk to me about it. THEY SAY THEY DON'T SUPPORT PROJECTORS! STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING THESE PEOPLE MAKE!

One down.. Lessons learned

 

Acer's customer service has suffered greatly since the Gateway/eMachines merge. It borders on un-friendly. I purchased a replacement unit and will take better care of it. Dead at 6 weeks and weeks to have fixed (and do without a picture)?? = Not...

Affordable. Really clear and decent picture (if you are not sitting within 4 feet of the screen). Easy to use, focus and enjoy.

fragile and appears to be super sensitive to heat and humidity. The first one died at 6 weeks old. Used it every day and it got left on over night more than once (fell asleep while watching my 10' picture!). Then... no light, but bulb was good. Our...

Follow up to previous review

 

I got my projector repaired by Acer for around $20. I bought it from Newegg with my Capital One card which doubles the warranty period and retains special warranty benefits. Be forewarned, there is a lot of paperwork involved. In my case they paid the...

I looked into fixing the projector myself. The DMD chip might cost as little as $118+ Shipping from China. The real question is can this be a simple disassemble -plug in new chip-reassemble repair? The service manual gives no hint as to that...

Keep this projector's capabilities in perspective. Really what do you expect for less than three bills. Thus far I have put over 300 hours on the repaired machine. I am satisfied.

User friendly?

 

It certainly does the job and is well built and balanced. May with trying to be more user friendly, the menu does not offer many otions for custom set up. That's the only real downside. I like it enough to get another one for another room in our building.

Received With Disrespect

 

The review guidelines specify that there can be no hate or incitement of violence, well, I just paid hundreds of dollars to be completely disrespected. I'd say Newegg is the one inciting hate, and causing harm.

Uhh, it's shiny?

Plugged the thing in exactly to quick-start guidelines, the power button was initially red, pressed it as the instructions said. Turned around to clean up packaging, turned back around to see how it was doing only to find that it stopped working...
