The picture quality, both color and focus, is excellent, limited only by the inherent resolution of DVDs. You do need a dark room, so unless you have heavy curtains, daytime viewing is poor. The sound depends somewhat on the quality of the DVD soundtrack. A few are only marginally loud enough even with the volume set at maximum. Others give beautiful sound that has the lively action similar to a 5-speaker system. The sound of the projector cooling fan is audible in quiet moments, but you tend to tune it out pretty quickly.
The instruction booklet covers the basics but is a little skimpy when it comes to hooking up to external sources or sound systems. The remote unit works by reflecting off the screen to a receiver on the front of the unit. Two annoying behaviors are 1) if you use the "Format" button (to shift from 16:9 to 4:3 for instance), the on-screen menu continues to show for a minute or longer, right in the middle of the picture, with no way to cancel it until it finally times out on its own. (You can't always tell before you start viewing a DVD whether it's widescreen or not, so there you are with the movie running and the stupid menu planted in the middle of your picture even after you've fixed the format.) And 2), whenever you change the volume, the on-screen volume level display shows up. It can be distracting in a dramatic quiet scene. There should be a way to disable the level display. Who needs to "see" the volume level?
Overall, we're very pleased with the projector. For a small group in not too big a room, it works quite well -- and our relatives are envious. For viewing by more than a few people I think you'd want to add an external sound system.
My wife, who was even more skeptical of my purchase and thought I was wasting my money, said, after seeing it for the first time and watching a 10' wide movie "Bob, you did good!" And from my wife that is the ultimate compliment. She loves to go watch movies in the rec room now - and before we used to watch them on the 60" Sony LCD HDTV, which is nice but hey, it's not 125" diagonal, is it? 4+x the picture. We are investing in room darkening roman shades to insure daytime viewings but even on a sunny day it's fairly adequate except during very dark scenes.
Sound quality of the 5 watt speakers is not bad but no comparison to 5.1, so while the DVD player and speakers make this projector highly portable (and we will take it to our vacation home for the summer!) I find it a great value for the buck! Even went on sale a week after I bought it and Amazon credited me back the $50 savings!
I also was able to upgrade the rebate bright white screen (92") to 120" Grey Wolf II upgrade screen for the difference in retail, fair enough. But that takes 8 weeks.
All in all a 4+ - and a "best buy!" I've got my Christmas present early!
It is light enough for me to move and carry without effort. I could not move a flat panel because they are too heavy for me. I did not want to spend the price for a high quality HD flat panel (in the scale of this projector's display) while the prices are coming down and technology is improving.
And best of all there is no display screen to dust! Also, I have a wall of windows in the family room and no one will see a large flat panel on my wall and think about breaking in to steal it.
It does emit a slight odor but I do not notice it unless I leave the room and come back in. It seems that now after several hours of use there is much less odor. I have a good sense of smell but this odor is not bothering me.
It does put out heat which is good in the winter, but I live in AZ so in the summer the heat will not be helpful. The fan humming is noticeable but I forget all about it after a few minutes and it is not annoying at all to me. I have had to keep the volume level at the highest for all the movies I have played to get the sound level to where I want it. That may be because I am using it in a very large, tall space. I can see that I will need to get my sound system installed if I want more volume.
I am very happy and would highly recommend this for the price $800-$900. I find it a GREAT bargain at this price. I don't even need the screen, but I will use it if it improves picture quality.
