Post-ownership review

 

I am revisiting my review 2 years after purchase with my experiences. This was a fantastic projector for the price and served me well for almost exactly 2 years, a good investment. I never had to buy a new bulb even with pretty heavy use, though the...

Price ; Brightness & Contrast Ratio ; Small, Quiet ; Decent resolution and supports 1600x1200

No air filters ; Moving parts (fans and color wheel) seem low quality
