I found this projector to be the Best Bang for the Buck after comparison shopping with all the different brands available. Comparing 2500:1 contrast ratio, 2000 ANSI lumens, 16x9 aspect ratio, up to 300 inches screen size projection (huge), 720p or 1080i (high def. DLP), easy set-up, multi connectivity and compatibility for under 1 grand is remarkable while other brand doesn't even come close. Ofcourse there are better specs. projectors out there but be ready to pay more. The higher the contrast ratio and ANSI lumens the better. (Customer Review)

To enjoy the full potential of a 1080i picture (movie theater experience minus the annoying person behind you) you need to connect an HD source or an upconverting DVD like Samsung ($130) and a surround sound system. Soon you'll look forward to every Friday & Saturday movie nights at home with the kids and a big smile on your face. (Customer Review)
