  • Amazing!
    Verified Purchase

    I tell you what - there is nothing like playing Black Ops 2 on an 84" screen at 1080p! I wanted to wait until 4k projectors came out, but I am not that patient (or rich), and this thing MORE than gets the job done. I did have some problems after about 80-100 hours where immediately after turning it on, the start-up screen would flicker and then the bulb would cut out all together, but after speaking with Optoma, I had it RMAed and returned to me in original operation after only about 10 days. (FYI - Optoma is apparently run by Catholics, so they are closed on Holy days such as Good Friday and they do not mention this in their "hours" recording ;) ) I have yet to experience the 3D capabilities of the projector, which reminds me... I have something to go buy... Definitely recommending this projector in the mean time!
