Yes, that's the point of having a projector.
Full HD movies have a lot of detail and the brightness is great. The 720p and less movies look pretty average, even bad sometimes.
Maybe, but the brightness claimed by the manufacturer is still a complete lie. How is the focus uniformity?
The setup itself was so simple as well and the remote is quite minimalistic like Samsung TV remotes. I just wanted an experience with a projector to see for myself if I would be able to set it up in a rental apartment with not much space and it has exceeded my expectations.
The setup was simple because you have no screen to align the image with. For a projector like that, I wouldn't buy a screen either. A flat and uniformly white wall is hard to come by; sometimes it can be better than a pull-down screen, rarely it is better than a fixed or tensioned screen.
If this is so good, I can't imagine what a vava/optoma p1 with a great ALR screen will do. But this little experiment proved that for me at least, a perfect setup i.e. darkened walls, basement setup, perfect screen etc is not needed.
A large image is enough to positively impress most people, but the image will look better with a proper setup no matter it's a $200 or a $200.000 projector. Even in a small apartment, in a non-dedicated room, like mine and yours, there's a lot you can do to improve your setup. The only thing this experience has proved is that you're glad with what you have, and that's fine. But I should tell you that for the same price there are used/older projectors that can outperform this one in every
aspect except connectivity.
