I own this projector. I got it for around this price from amazon. Its an awesome projector for the price and worked perfectly in my media room. I'd recommend it.

This is a really great projector, but it's not the lowest price it's been. I got it on amazon for $499 2 years ago, and just last month it was only $440 on amazon after the 20% off visa coupon. It will definitely dip below $500 again.

Got it during the amazon card holders deal for $438 shipped. Definitely enjoy mine and worth it.

was $440 a few months ago *if* you had the Amazon Rewards Visa.

i returned it. here's my short "review":

after 3 hours playing around with this thing i'm pretty confident in saying i'll be sending it back on Monday.

bright (even with lights turned on in basement and blinds covering windows with no curtains)
blacks look very good coming from 3LCD
whites were impressive as well
game mode

very limited placement options (no lens shift; placement over 9-10' is problematic)
all inputs including power are on the left side (why??)
sharpness (most images were not very crisp)
delay in switching from 24p to 60p content (several second black screen when switching)
color (over saturation and some content washed out)
loud (using standard bulb setting vs "echo")

I watched some live TV (1080, 720, 480 content), some Zootopia and Revenant (both 1:1 Blu Ray rips so no compression), and played around on the PS4. TV looked bad. Not sure why, it just looked bad. The image was washed out and wasn't very crisp. I tried all of the preset "modes" with no luck. The movies looked good but not great. The brightness was very good as were the blacks. The color saturation was just ok. The PS4 looked great, and I couldn't detect any lag in "game" mode.

This would be a good "starter" projector for most. It would also be a great outside movie night projector. If you have had a dedicated projector setup for a while and are coming from an older more expensive model you will likely be disappointed. My 2007 model Epson is not nearly as bright as this Optoma, but the image quality, color accuracy, and sharpness are noticeably better.

Has anyone had this for a year or more? A few years ago I bought 3 optomas, I believe hd66 sounds right. All three were full of white dots within 18 months. Wondering of Optoma's newer products have this issue. It's the DMD chips that go out. My Mitsu DLP TV had this happen after 5 years. Makes me uneasy about DLP products but I love the color

Pay $20 more and get the 142x which came out two weeks ago. The 142x has better optics, and longer bulb life.
