I used one for quite a while. They work great for BYT. I only changed because my wife started buying Blue rays and it didn't make sense to connect a Blue ray to a built in DVD to me. $350 isn't bad...

It's not a 720p projector, it's 1024 x 768 (computer resolution), so if true HiDef is something you want, this won't get it. That being said, I use a 1024 x 768 projector on a 12ft screen and it...

The 730HD is an excellent projector if 3D is not a concern. If you are interested in 3D, then the Optoma HD180 is a great buy at the same price from Amazon. I have the HD66, which is the 2500 lumen...

Are you looking at this as an indoor/outdoor projector or both? For outdoor, it looks pretty good. 3500 is plenty of lumens, 15,000:1 is excellent contrast. It will show a 16:9 image (native 16:10),...
