      I bought this projector a few days ago and spent several hours over the weekend watching tv and movies. The amount of lens shift this projector has is great for placement flexibility. The adjustable feet and zoom lens allowed me to have the projector up and running with a level and clear picture within 10 minutes of taking it out of the box. No keystone correction needed. This is my first projector, but i read extensively online before deciding this was the projector for me. My projector is at approximately a 13' throw distance and I decided on a 135" image on the wall. It was recommended to me to experiment with screen size before pulling the trigger on the screen. Very glad i waited to purchase a screen as i originally was thinking of a 110" or 120" screen. For the image being thrown onto my light grey wall (no special paint job for a screen), the image already looks surprisingly good. Even with some ambient lighting, the picture is respectable with the lamp on eco mode. I watched movies using the cinema color setting. With all of the lights out and the room dark, the image was very impressive. I sit about 10' away from the screen and was worried a 1080p signal blown up that big wouldnt look clear or precise enough. The only imperfections i could see were from the wall itself. This projector is going to look that much better when my screen comes in. It is also nice that the remote that comes with it is backlit. I will update if i find more to add, but i am a very happy camper right now.

      Fantastic, Versatile Projector!

      I spent a long time looking at different entry level projectors (this is probably on the higher end of entry level I would say). The major constraint that I found I had to solve for in my scenario was needing a projector with Vertical Lens Shift. This projector ended up being the most affordable projector under $2K that had over 10% Vertical Lens Shift (my scenario has the projector on the top of a bookshelf on one side of the room, at about 6 feet high, projecting onto a wall on the opposite side). In short, the lens shift worked exactly as I hoped! I currently have an xBox 360, PS3, and Wii hooked up to it, projecting onto about a 170" image on a greyish wall. In my opinion, it looks fantastic. Blu Rays look great, Netflix is amazing, and games on a screen this size are pretty amazing. For what it is worth, I do not notice any discernable lag. The main drawback I have at this time is that the projector has no audio in for the PC/VGA input, which is what I have my Wii hooked into. This means that when I use the Wii, I need to hook up an external speaker rather than the built in speakers of the projector. This is a minor annoyance more than anything, and more due to the Wii being so old it only has analog outputs.

      great 1080p 3D projector

      I've owned multiple projectors over the years, most recently the Home Cinema 3500, which unfortunately got damaged by a power surge. I had 3200 hours on that projector, still with the original bulb, and the picture remained bright and crisp throughout. Previous projectors (including prior Epsons) had short bulb lives - usually much shorter than advertised, so I was thrilled with the performance of the 3500. When it was damaged, the 3700 (newer version of the same projector) was the obvious choice. I've been using it a few weeks and I'm thrilled with the image - both 2D and 3D. Unless you're determined to go with 4K or have a pitch-black room to take advantage of a higher contrast projector, I don't see any reason to spend more. (and the higher contrast projectors tend to be less bright and far more expensive). Even with some ambient light, this is bright enough to look great. Prior experience with Epson support is also a real plus.

      The speakers comes really handy when you don't want to use your home theatre receiver. If your receiver has standby pass through then switching is automatic. The PJ speakers automatically switches off once receiver in on, I like this! My theater is 120" screen and projector is at right above my seat my seats at about 13'. PJ is very clear at these distances if you watch Blu-Rays. DVDs looks good at about 16-17' from the screen. So far about 1.5 months with this PJ and enjoying it. Lens shift will give you additional flexibility as well. My Vertical lens shift is at max, horizontal does it own shifting a bit and you may have to keep moving projector to fit your screen. Rating reduced by one star due to the quality of lens shift buttons/knobs, indicator of default/original level. Also has lot of controls to play with (bright/contrast/color/hue/etc). It is bright and will work with one 60W bulb on, viewing is difficult with all room lights on, but it is a common sense with PJ's. Noise is tolerable but couldnot make out once PJ speakers or HT receiver kicks-in.

      I took some time trying to decide if I would purchase another TV to replace my aging Panasonic Plasma that still has lots of life left in it. After reading several reviews and comparing cost I decided to go with a projection system and couldn't be happier at this point. The color and quality is perfect for home theater and the 2 speakers with 3D capability is a huge bonus. I plan on purchasing a automatic HDMI switch to accommodate several devices and mount the unit to the ceiling of our newly finished basement. Currently have it set to a screen size of 110 inches and the clarity and color is truly amazing 3000 plus lumens 70,000 to 1 contrast is hard to beat. Dark scenes are clear with lots of detail. I picked it up on sale for 1299 and could be happier. Plus it's portable take it anyplace for a movie night.. my loves the theater like experience at home.

      Awesome Projector with great performance

      It is our 3rd Projector and finally very happy with it. We installed in our media room. I cannot describe how amazing the picture quality is when watching a 1080p blu-ray in a dark room and really shines even during the day.The built in speakers are really nice. Very clean sound and there is no fan noise noticed like various projectors have.It has very good lens shift. 3D works really well.We got 2 pairs of 3D glasses with it. We have 65” 4K SUHD TV. But we enjoy this projector everyday.We are planning to make a setup outside in the backyard and see how the image quality in the natural environment.The image is even more sharp after we put the blackout curtains all around the walls and ceiling of the media room. Overall this is a great projector with good quality and price.Definitely this is our best purchase and I highly recommend this to anyone.

      After researching, I decided to purchase this projector for my family and I am glad that I did. Okay we have only had the projector for a few days but WOW the 3D image was great, and we used our Samsung 3D glasses (thanks to another reviewer ) and projected on the family room wall with the projector located in a corner. We used the dials on the top of the projector to center and lower the image, my husband was so impressed that he now wants to move the TV to another room and hook up the cable box to the projector. I am giving a five for now because we just made purchase but I will give an update at the end of the summer because we have movie night at least 2 times a week during the summer.

      Beyond Excellent 1080p!

      This is top end 1080p entertainment! Blu rays look ridiculous. Tron Legacy at 24p is awesome. The lens shift is the most useful feature I’ve ever had on a projector and cannot fathom ever buying another without it! The images are super crisp, and incredibly bright even with all the windows open and lights on. This is the best 1080p experience that WOWS everyone that comes over on my 120 inch screen. Until 4k becomes reasonably affordable with lens shift etc, you’ll be very happy with this projector for years to come. Even my wife is impressed! The contrast ratio is phenomenal, blacks look black! Especially after some tweaking in settings. Just a fantastic purchase at a sub $1500 price.
