" ...  The picture quality is better than I expected from a projector at this price point and appears to be a true 1080p picture. ... The pictures I uploaded don’t really do justice to the actual image quality. ... Bright, high quality 1080p picture ... What you will get is a excellent projector with phenomenal picture quality for a small price tag and to me that is worth five-stars.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Everything looks crisp and vibrant and I can definitely use my projector as extra screen space for my computer if need be (see photo of excel spreadsheet). ... I did have to shrink the image down to about 86% of the full projectable size to have it fit my projector screen.  ...  "

" ...  The speakers sound pretty darn good.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Image is fantastic, built-in speakers are more than adequate, and fan noise is non-existent.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The only thing was that from reading previous reviews, we knew that the projector had sound, but the reviews made it as if the sounds got pretty loud. ... So, I would say that only use the projector for sound if it's an indoor small showing (say like in your living room) and not for a large scale showing (which should seem pretty obvious in the first place).  ...  "

comment
" ...  In my opinion, while considering the projector, the dot pitch is really important (and can be measured according to the highest resolution/proportion that the projector can handle - in this case, 1080p HD 16:9 format), the significantly more important is the luminosity, or lumens.  ...  "
