Pros I have used this projector since May, 09 with no problems. The advantage of this unit is the built in speakers and built in DVD player. I travel to teach classes and it is convenient not to have to carry a separate DVD player and a set of speakers.
Cons I would be nice if the carry case had a velcro flap for the power cord and remote. Also I have to take the batteries out of the remote when I store it. The tight fitting pocket will constantly press the buttons and discharge them.
Summary I like the projector because it is easy to carry and set up. It has been dependable so far and I'm on the first bulb with approx. 300 hours of use. The bulbs are less costly than most projectors and one of the reasons I decided on this model. I use a 70 inch screen for class sizes of about 35 people and the picture and sound quality are suberb.
Pros Easy set up and use. Can go anywhere. Picture is great. Use of components with this is great. Good quality, sturdy and dependable.
Cons Sounds is OK - I added some speakers for surround sound and that did the trick! It's a little pricey - especially when adding in extra speakers and a screen for portability.
Summary We use this inside and outside and it's always a hit - whether we are having a movie night for kids, or playing Wii or Xbox on it...much fun on a big screen. It's portable and easy to set up. I haven't had any problems in over a year of ownership now - bulb is still going strong even. I would highly recommend this. The kids love it and everyone is always impressed with the picture quality. Since I've added the speakers, the sound is amazing - watching a scary movie on this thing is quite a movie theatre experience now. 2 thumbs up!
Pros Nice bright picture, built in DVD great quality, digital audio out with DTS, component video in works great with game consoles, easy to use. Comes with case.
Cons adjustable feet are limited in length of movement. Large picture is a little pixelated.
Summary I bought this on sale for 750 (canadian dollars), and couldn't be happier with it. I use it for movies and games, and it works great for both. If you are not in the market for an expensive HD projector, this would be a great option for you.
