I have now had a number of projectors which get a lot of use with our family of 5.
First one was a 1000 lumen old technology (spinning colour wheel type), seemed great at the time because we knew no better but the lamp faded after a couple of years and was £300 to replace so we upgraded to an Acer, the difference was immediately noticeable and the projector was first class, but it got white spots - one or two at first then more and more until we couldn't watch it. We sent for repair but as it was just over two years old Acer didn't want to know which disappointed me as I expected it to last a lot longer for the price - farewell Acer - customer lost., the cost of replacement lcd screen was close to that of a projector we decided not to bother.
We looked at everything but finally went for this Optoma.. It was a risk as it works off the new Texas instruments, dark crystal system and there were no reviews, but a risk I am glad I took. Set up was a breeze, worked almost straight out the box. The picture quality is exceptional - almost too good, if you link up Sky HD and watch something like x factor in HD you can actually see the dreadful make up on the judges etc, they look a strange colour and you can tell it is actually how they look for TV and not just the projector! I am sure there will be a setting on the projector to counter this but have not bothered to look yet.
If you go for a box office movie or a DVD however this thing really excels, the picture quality is absolutely stunning with no rainbow effect and no loss of definition in the dark, even tiniest details in dark rooms stand out, the colours are vibrant and the light levels are fantastic, we project onto a 3 metre glass bead coated screen and you can watch this in daylight with the blinds open, it is that good.

I bought this projector a year ago and it has been in very heavy use ever since. We bought a 42 inch Sony Bravia TV at the same time that sits in our front room unloved and is now referred to as "the portable"

The projector was very easy to set up, I have it linked to a home PC and a occasionally a PS3, the picture (at the right resolution) is very good, and bright enough to watch in daylight. The speakers are pretty dreadful but you'd be mad to use them (I have a sound bar/subwoofer set up instead). So far, after approximately 2 hours use every day for the last year the projector has performed faultlessly, there have been no white spots, no flickering and very little rainbow effect.

The lack of a 2nd HDMI port in slightly annoying but not the end of the world and it's shape did make it harder to mount in the shelf space we had available, but these problems are very minor.

In fact, I've just bought 2 pairs of DLP 3D link glasses which I'm waiting on amazon to deliver, so that we can start watching 3D movies on it. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase and haven't regretted going for a 720p instead of 1080p projector.

Very good value at £349 imo

What a change from our previous Optoma. Stunningly brighter and works really well for projecting our DVD's. Yes, the noise of it can intrude sometimes but we can ignore that for the improved viewing experience. Focusing and vertical adjustment all seem to be easier to do. Good value for money.

bought this projector a few days ago and it is our first projector. For an entry level machine I wasn't expecting too much from it. So far we have only used it to display two films one blu ray 2d and one dvd 2d. We are currently redecorating the front room and the walls have fresh undried and unpainted plaster on them and this is the surface we projected the image onto. This gave the image the apperence of if you were watching a tv with a dirty screen but even so the picture quality is amazing considering the situation.

Despite the "brown and salmon" coloured walls the coulours were amazing the whites where brilliant white... how when the wall is brown and pink the projector does this baffles me and the blacks where deep black.... how a projector projects black (an absence of light) is a mystery. The fan is quiet enough sitting right next to the machine to not be bothersome even in quiet parts of the film.

The screen size is a wonderful 118" diagonal and quite impressive and exciting to have in your front room. Especially with the world cup on its way. Ease of use is exceptional. I took it out of its box connected the required leads turned it on focused the image in 2seconds selected my language and sat back to watch the films it really is that easy.

if this thing can produce images like the ones I have witnessed on a freshly plastered unpainted wall i am confident it will blow me away again once the wall is painted. I can tell even as it is now that the picture quality is much better than my Samsung 40" full hd tv. I am sure concert dvds/blu rays will be a fantastic experience especially since my blu ray player converts 2d to 3d.

the machine is two days out of its box the real test will be what its like in 2yrs but first impressions are superb.

My last Optoma began to develop dead pixels (white spots) after several years loyal service so I was happy to 'upgrade' to another Optoma with HD capability. To be honest, I can't see much difference yet, between the DVD image on the last projector and Blue Ray on this one. Excellent in colour, contrast, detail and representation of dark scenes. No complaints then, so why four stars? Well, the last and very similar Optoma came with a carry case - and simple but important things like a lens cap. This model didn't. Never mind - the old Optoma in it's case is still good for powerpoints but otherwise I'd be a bit miffed. then there's a peculiar issue. This one is 'static' mounted in a home cinema in an enclosed ventilated ceiling box. Unlike the previopus model, for some unaccountable reason, the projector turns on when the power supply is turned on. Not into standby, but into projection mode. For some, like me, that will be awkward. Possibly not a problem for others, but I like to use the remote to switch it on. Finally, if you want a BIG picture, as I do, then check the 'throw' figures. This one is installed in place of the last one and has a slightly shorter 'throw' . The outcome is that despite a gigantic screen, my image 'overlaps' somewhat and re-siting the projector is a major challenge. So a good projector let down by a few niggles that may or may not affect you.
