Every day projector


This is my every day monitor with neary 450 hours of use since september. Previous had been using a $1500 sony projector that was about to need its third bulb.

Bright clear picture that look decent with the windows open during the day at 108 Inch wide screen. Xbox 360 & PS3 some times during parties or LANs. Computer games and Netflix being its main usage

The throw is high & can't be adjusted (As mention in another post) ; Built in Speakers are ok if your playing 32 bit console games. Would recommend mini head phone jack speaker for travel

It's portable, comes with case to carry it in. It's very bright, used it at friends home to play 360 games on his white wall. Good gaming projector, no lag, very clear and stunning color. Built in sound is nice too. This is my first PJ so I don't have...

none that I can find, only had it 1 week

Great Buy!


This is our 3rd home theater projector. Bought this to replace a Mits HC1500 that was aging out. I was excited about moving up from a 720 to a 1080 image. Researched this at and Both sites gave it good...

Great deal for a great projector


Bought this for the new conference room, and it's now mounted on the ceiling. Couldn't ask for better picture quality, considering how cheap it was, at least not for a projector ; 6000 lamp hours is pretty sweet, but we'll see if it actually lasts that...

None, so far. Great machine for a great price

Wow Wee


I have been looking all over the internet for a reasonably priced best quality projector and I believe the Pro8200 is it. I was shell shockeredly pleasantly surprised how beautiful the colors were with a non-bluray player at 480p! on a 120" screen...

Bright, Easy to Setup and Use, Quiet, Crystal Clear Picture, Built-in speakers. Comes with a nice carrying case

None that i can think of

Moldy projector


It's a great projector. I'm really not happy with NewEgg for doing this twice. What a waste of our time when we've been needing this projector for business purposes for over two weeks now. This is the first time I've ever had problems with NewEgg, and...

It is supposed to be a nice projector

TWICE now I've received this projector covered in mold. The first time I RMA'd it and asked to be sent one that has been visually inspected to not be covered in mold. The second one came covered in mold

awesome device, very quiet, beautiful picture i was amazed even when i projected it onto a bed sheet before getting the real screen. by far best bang for buck compared to any other projectors around the same price. and to whoever was saying you cant...

i dont understand the question

So happy I Upgraded


shut off is fast - I worried about my old projector - power bump etc since the fan needed to stay on so long after unit shut off - not the case with this one.

Great Picture ; Easy Setup ; Quiet ; 2 HDMI if you need them ; Eco mode is plenty light. We are in a dark basement but could watch even with lights on. 10' screen in HD

Had to move from where previous projector was. Much mor finicky on placement and no lateral movement. No documentation on at x amount of feet away you can have a picture x size. Would have helped in placement I think. Especially since we already...

Works perfectly


I was shocked by the brightness and clarity of this projector for the cost.

Fast start up, super fast shut down. Really bright compared to my previous projector, lights around the corner of the room arent as critical anymore. also lots quieter than previous projector

only one component input. Also, the hard points for ceiling mounting are not the standard square layout. had to come up with a different mount

Solid projector


You have to place this projector really low if you put it on a stand. I have mine about 2 feet off the floor and I had to put a board under the back end to get it to point down enough to go on my wall....

This projector has great brightness and crystal clear HD. It has very nice color although obviously not as good as my high end sony lcd but its projector so I wasnt expecting it to compete with that

The blue for me has been terrible in high contrast situations. I watched the old Mortal Combat movie and one seen you could hardly make out anything because it was sooo blue!! I have tried adjusting it and I just cant seem to remedy that. That said for...
