This thing ROCKS!


Best projector I've seen for the price I paid. ($899 new)

Awesome picture, portable, reliable. Owned mine for a year and a half, and it looks as good as it did the day I bought it. Been holding Madden tourneys at my house now for the last 9 weeks, and have been projecting it up to 20' x 15'. UNBELIEVABLE

None so far
