I have used a few projectors and this one has blown me away very good machine can be used in room with lights on also giving you many options to use and not have to set a special time or location to be used.

I bought this in February 2010. Now, six months later the bulb has gone.

Promotional material claimed that I could reasonably expect 4000 hrs of lamp life. Having had a tiny fraction of this (750 hrs), I am annoyed. This is my second projector, used in the same way as the first: that previous projector lasted over three years before needing a replacement bulb.

I have also now been told by the supplier, Digital Components Ltd, that the bulb is not covered by the warranty, so they will not give me a replacement bulb. Given that the bulb is almost the entire cost of this product, customers are effectively buying an item without the statutory one-year guarantee.

Never owned a projector before, so I can't really comment from a position of authority. I bought it because it was cheap and seemed to be a useful business projector that would do for occasional movie watching. It seems to fill both these categorie very well.

One note on movies though - if you move your eyes (e.g. looking at different parts of the projected image) you occasionally see a rainbow effect. This is far less noticeable on PC projections for some reason.

All in all though, for the money, it is excellent value.

We sell software packages which are designed to run on Microsft Windows Vista, Windows 7 etc and the screen resolution of the projector display for presentations needs to be the same as on most modern PC screens and lapdop displays. I looked around and this one appeared to fit the bill at a reasonable price (most cheaper projectors don't have this level of resolution). Having used it a number of times now it has behaved faultlessley, with a clear, bright image, easy to set up, easy to configure. Recommended 100% as we are very happy with it. It comes with a case which is good, however fitting the cables and remote into the pocket is a squeeze but that is a minor detail.

After wanting to go 3D for my video games and movies I started to research on various methods of gaining this ability without costing the Earth! I had a look and found this 3D projector along with the HD67 and did some research on avforums.com to get some reviews. There were not too many people talking about the unit but was able to find out that it wouldn't be PS3 3D compatible until Optoma released their 3D-XL peripheral in early 2011. So with this in mind I bought it fully knowing it's capability, however being a bit wary on the performance due to the low cost...

Received the unit and unboxed it, the carry case it fairly basic (no padding) but does the job in help carrying it around. It was easy to setup and navigate through the menus to adjust the projector to the output that I wanted. As soon as the HD image shone on my wall the quality was great even with it shining on a brown wall instead of even white or a proper screen. (I will be getting a screen later on). I was used to the SD signals, usually from VGA, so having the HD output it was very impressive!! Also I did some calculations to the screen size and I have it roughly 14' away for a 101" diagonal screen size at about 2-3ft off the ground so the top of the image is roughly a foot away from the ceiling (so no keystone adjustment as that is very VERY bad!!! significantly affects quality)

I had heard of some issues with this kind of projector (colour wheels) with the 'rainbow effect' and have very VERY rarely seen this problem while the unit is in operation. Think in game it has happened twice in the 15 hours or so of use and it was the aiming reticule in a dark space during a game of Resistance. The speakers are tinny but to be expected (I was never going to use as have a dedicated sound system in place).

This projector was bought mainly for business, but with a view to it also being available for occasional home use. The unit is smart, black and compact (ideal for business), well built, relatively light-weight and comes with a padded bag. The absence of any input lead (not even a VGA), appears a little tight-fisted, but is fairly common practice with such machines, although I've never understood why.

Native resolution was a key consideration, and whilst SVGA is perfectly adequate for PowerPoint from a laptop via a VGA connection, XGA was selected as the minimum standard in order to satisfy the potential home use element. Being a 16:10 projector (yes, strange, but it also supports the more standard 16:9) it is actually WXGA, although to appreciate this resolution the alternate HDMI input connection is necessary. Other available inputs are CV and S-Video, neither of which I've bothered with and which I suspect will be of little interest to most users. The option of connecting an additional monitor for video foldback via a VGA OUT socket is a nice touch, although I personally just use my laptop screen for this.

Audio is quite good for a projector, and certainly sufficient for a medium sized meeting room, but it is still only a single small speaker, so the AUDIO OUT jack could prove useful for larger board rooms or similar venues. Home cinema buffs will inevitably go direct to a multichannel audio system from their video player and ignore this capability completely. Audio is not really what projectors should be about anyway.

Other features that I personally have no interest in but which come as standard are : (1) a Kensington security fixing; (2) an RS 232 PC control port; (3) an infra-red remote control for when ceiling mounted; (4) alleged 3D capability.
