Wassup people!
I had been searching amazon for months to buy me a projector on my bday. Went thru 100s of projectors, compared each of their attributes on external sites, and then finally decided to go for this model. Here's what i feel about this proj:

1. No setup required. Plug n Play.
2. The warm colors projected by this is a.w.e.s.o.m.e
3. Contrast could have been a lil higher (though in this range, this model has the best among other projs, cept 1161p which has 4000:1)
4. Plays any format, any "p" (720, 1080) seamlessly.
5. Good native res, n pretty good scaling fr non native res too.
6. 3D WORKS!! (all u need is a graphics card capable to refresh at 120hz!)
7. Good brightness. You can see things in white light, in daylight a lil lesser.
8. Text is sharp. i have a nearly 6' high image in my room and text is great.

If you looking for a budget proj, this will more than do for you.
i put avatar (blu ray) and was blown away by the quality of the projection.

The only thing that bothers me is that one of the edges is lil soft. On googling this i found that one needs to have the proj at right angles to the screen (n my wooden desk isn't exactly straight :)).

also, playing games is simply amazing!
put up NFS undercover - was blown away agn
put up Assassins creed - simply loved the graphics

my LCD now sits in the corner. Am hooked to this thing ;)

before buying this though, do know that this is NOT a home theatre proj with 50k:1 contrast and all.

I needed a replacement for my aging and fading projector, which I use for home-cinema purposes. This one seemed to have good specs (XGA and high brightness) for the low price. Setup was really easy, the unit is very compact and light weight, comes with a nice carrying case for those who need it. I watched the latest Pirates movie as a test case. This is a movie with a lot of dark night scenes, which made watching it on my old projector a headache. With the new one, it was great!! Brightness / contrast / color definition are all really good. I highly recommend this projector for home cinema for those who (like me) cannot afford to throw in a couple grand. Since its so small and light and comes with a carrying case, it would seem to me to be a good deal for office / business use, too.

I opened the box and hooked it up to my macbook pro. It is a very good, clear picture and will work fantastic for presentations. No brains needed to get it working

I got this projector for doing a slideshow at my wedding, and it was plenty bright to do the trick. (Bright room, 10' picture).
I now use it for a home theater projector, and it is OK at that. It doesn't have HDMI, only analog inputs, and VGA.

The picture it produces is super bright and vibrant, but at closer viewing distances, the screen door effect is apparent.

So, is it a great projector? No, not really.

Is it an adequate projector? Yah. It gets the job done, and is well priced. I don't regret my purchase.

Great to see photos, videos and more, the "ColorBoost" is for real.
Simple design, except for the remote control who falls everytime you pick up the projector.
Just the way it happens to most the power cord is short!!
I would like HDMI port.

Anyway, great for the price, see you after 3000 hours of use....

This project has really good quality of images!!! The only thing I might concern with next purchase is that it doesn't have a hdmi input so that I cannot connect my wii to it. Other than that, it is awesome!!!
Big surprise!!!

It is very quiet and does not give off much heat. It is a huge improvement over the one that it replaced. Picture is very clear. I would recommend as a good projector for making business presentations.

Got this Acer projector to replace our broken one that we use for office presentations and training. We didnt need anything fancy, but this one worked well beyond our expectations. Would recommend.
