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.

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 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.

I had a BenQ PB7200 for several years and the bulb went out. I had replaced the bulb once and didn't want to invest any more in this old model. So, I wanted to get something inexpensive because projector technology has come a long way since I got that BenQ.

This Acer is built very well. The brightness level is excellent. Contrast is very similar to my old projector. I really like the color warmth as well. I have it mounted in my basement, upside down with a ceiling mount.

Pros:

- quiet fan - even quieter in economy mode
- great color warmth
- brightness is as good as I've seen with the several projectors I've used at home and work
- setup is easy
- low price

Cons:

- the mounting points are a different size thread than the universal mounting kit I already have
- no secondary VGA input (not complaining since the cost makes great bang for the buck)
- the "throw distance" meant that I had to mount this further away from the screen than my old projector

Reliability can only be determined with usage over time. I've only had it a week but I am very pleased with the purchase.

I haven't tested it with any video games. I mainly watch videos. The image quality is great eventhough it's not HD. Most of the videos I have are below 720P and look really good on this projector.

I got this to use as a video projector in my man cave. I know it's not a proper home theater projector but it clocks in at around half the price of an entry level HT projector. I did weeks of research and this unit had the best reviews for the money by far.

I was a little bummed that it only came in black because my walls are white but it's not a deal breaker. I like how the remote stores in the unit and acts as an-on board control panel. I also like how it came with a small padded tote bag with a pocket for the power and video cables. I got a 25' component to VGA cable on Amazon and it matched right up with my DVD player. It doesn't seem to auto detect 16:9 vs 4:3 from my DVDs, even though I have that option turned on. My DVD player in that room is kind of old and basic though, so it may have something to do with that. I bet my DirecTV DVR would probably kick it over. It's a quick fix with the remote anyway. The auto keystone correction feature is great and made set up a breeze. It's very quiet, especially in Eco mode. Little fella pumps a lot of heat out of the vent. I was surprised. Not a bad thing, just an item of note. It's very light weight and rather compact. Smaller than I was expecting.

Picture quality is very good. I had it throwing a 95" diagonal on textured wall while I was playing with it out of the box and it looked good. I'm only going to do 80" when I mount it and it will project on a screen so things will only get better. It's bright enough to use in daylight with marginal wash but it certainly looks best in a dark room. I'm glad that I won't need to go to the extent of putting up blackout curtains over my blinds for daytime viewing. I haven't tweaked the settings yet but the color and contrast looked good in video mode. I'll fine-tune once the screen it up.
