Worked just long enough to pass the 1 year warranty.

 

Don't know what this review matters since the item does not appear to be sold on newegg any more ; It had nice picture and the adjustments where nice for any mounting position. The 2 HDMI where nice to have so I didn't need a splitter/switch. The...

Well It died yesterday, It is not the bulb as I am still getting the input indicator to show up in the corner. It finds the input resolution and displays it fine but shows a black screen. Of course it lasted just long enough to pass the 1 year...

Awesome!

 

This is worth buying, and from what I hear the HD141 is just as good if not better.

Purchased on Newegg Flash for $630.00 It is my first projector, and I will say that I am not disappointed in it after 4 months of regular use. Easily watchable during the day, but even better at night.

Not really sure if its the projector or my PS4, but when I watch blu-rays on it the movies look grainy, yet everything looks fine/great while playing normal games or even streaming. Has anyone else had this issue? I have even toggled between my PS3 and...

Awesome value

 

I have no regrets after six months of heavy use. This inexpensive projector is a great value.

The price was great and this projector delivers a great picture. So far (about six months of daily use) very reliable. The picture is excellent. Very very few noticeable artifacts

A minor issue was that the projector indicated a blown bulb after a few hours of use. The company was quick to offer a free replacement under warranty, but it turned out that just reinstalling the bulb fixed the issue. Also, the mounting holes for...

Over all buy this thing if you want a great affordable movie/game projector with a replacement bulb under $200

Had it for at least 5 months now. Sill running great ; Purchased at $730.00 By far the best purchase I have every made. The picture quality is out of this world even on larger surfaces. Its decently bright. Daytime viewing can be a little tough with...

Manual focus. But even that is super easy to do ; Kind of slow between source changes kinda flickers a few times then finally loads not too bad if you lock the input source ; I had some issues with the red balance out of the box. Everything that was...

Fantastic projector.

 

My first projector purchase, I am incredibly pleased.

Very crisp image. High resolution support. Very bright, even if in eco mode. Very quiet. Dual HDMI's so no need to swap cables between media devices. 3D support.

Unusual mounting requires optima brand mount, but I was able to get a third party generic mount to work with it by buying 3M bolts and some washers.
