This projector gets an A+ for value. We've had this projector installed for a few weeks. If you are a savvy, high-quality experience-seeking individual, I would caution against this projector because it is not high-end. I haven't used a projector at home for over a decade, so my experience and knowledge is low. With that said, I'm very happy with this projector for our use in the basement for kids movies & wii. I mounted it to the ceiling and had no problems with set up. The built-in speaker was surprisingly loud albeit of mono speaker quality. I never planned on using the built-in speaker for long and hooked it up to a receiver for surround sound. I'm at a throw distance of about 14 feet so my "screen" size (it projects onto an empty wall) is huge, probably around 12 feet maybe larger. The center is crisp and clear but the edges are slightly out of focus...it bothered me during set up but I haven't once noticed it during a movie or games. The projector built-in fan is loud...that is my 1-star reduction on the review. While I have no frame of reference for the noise level of a more expensive projector, the fan is loud enough for me to be annoyed during use but not loud enough for me to do something about it. My kids haven't complained at all and they think they have their own movie theater in our basement. The brightness needs the room to be dark...not pitch black but the darker the better. Overall, not a top-notch projector but for the price I am quite satisfied.
