Real piece of junk



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

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.

Great projector for the price


All in all this is a great projector for the price. Acer says the bulb will last 6000 hours in eco mode. we have had it for a year and used about 1500 hours. this is Friday and weekend use over long school vacations. We take the screen down and don't...

I bought this projector about a year ago from another retailer. I mounted it to the living room ceiling and ran a 25 ft vga cable across the ceiling to the back of my HTPC. Made a homemade screen out of a white full sheet and two long dowels from Lowes...

about once every couple months it gets clogged with dust and will shut itself off with the built in overheat protection. I have to take it down, remove the bulb and use compressed air to blow through all the vents and clean the fan up. Be careful...

Tough to operate withoud special menus


A well built projector but software leaves a lot to be desired. Clear and bright image but unable to access the menu to make settings other than the basic installation menu. Green menu button inop.

Worked great at first.


Easy to set up, good colors, fairly inexpensive

Do not buy this product if you want to have more than a year of low-moderate use ; This is where things get disappointing. I am a school teacher and this projector had less than 8 months of use (and not even everyday, sometimes not even used every...

Great product for the price


I have been looking at projectors for awhile now. So far I have used this for both home and professional use with no issues. The picture is exactly what I expected for an entry level projector. Everything is clear and gives you the feeling of sitting...

Light weight and bright


The optics are barely passible and the zoom feature practically useless at a distance over 8'. It has good contrast being a DLP projector but also, as DLP's do, it pumps out a LOT of heat and needs to be well ventilated or the lamp will overheat and...
