I have had this projector for about a month now, and currently have it paired with an Elite Screens 120" Cinewhite screen. Overall, I love this projector. With that said, here are some details I found if you are considering this projector:

1) EASY SETUP: For 120" screen, I have it about 12" away from the wall and about 11" below the bottom of the screen. Just project your image on the wall first so you have a good idea where to mount your screen. It is then easy to "fine tune" the picture using the keystone correction in the menu.

2) PICTURE QUALITY: With the Elite Screens Cinewhite screen (has a gain of 1.1), in LOW LIGHT the picture is VERY GOOD, contrast is excellent, colors are vibrant and picture is crisp and sharp. In DAYLIGHT (room with multiple large windows), the picture is still very usable, but some noticeable washout from ambient light. I am looking into ALR (ambient light rejecting) screens to improve this, but there are a lot of variables (gain, contrast, etc) that I am learning before making this investment, as they start at $1,300 and up. This projector will not be as bright and vivid as a good 4K TV, but it's contrast is exceptional, and with the right screen it should be very close (and 120"!).

3) SOUND: The built in soundbar does sound nice, significantly better than TVs I have had. Admittedly though, I only listed to it for a few minutes, as I have the HDMI of all of my devices running through my AVR and use that for sound.

4) FAN NOISE: In it's "normal" picture mode, the fans run at a low speed, and I don't notice the fan sound. If I put the picture brightness in "high", the fans will cycle from slow to high speed, and you can hear the fans a little more. Again, not really noticeable if you are watching anything with reasonable volume, and not at all noticeable when you turn up the volume (movies, etc).

WISHLIST:
a) REMOTE CONTROL: This comes with a blue-tooth remote, which works just fine. My only wish is that it integrated with smart home devices (Alexa, etc), as I have most of my house setup this way. So far, I have not been able to find a solution to this.
b) DISPLAY BRIGHT MODE: In settings, you can change the display mode to "Bright", which adds just a bit more "pop" to the picture, but it resets to standard mode once you turn off the unit, so you need to go to the menu every time you want to go back to Bright mode.

SUMMARY: Overall, as stated, I love this projector and highly recommend it. The price is far below anyone else, with the Optoma being the only closely priced unit I could find, but still $600 more (I didn't consider the Xiaomi or other Chinese brands that, as of now, aren't readily available and have menus and apps partially in Chinese). I highly recommend you look at various YouTube reviews of this and other projectors to give you a better sense if this is right for you. GOOD LUCK!
