Godo product..while it worked. Two years later and an un-honoured Acer warranty and it's a $1200 doorstop. Stay clear of Acer customer service they don't honour their wannarties and treat customer ABYSMALLY.

Any Problems: Dead unit when 1 week old. 2 years later it ate 3 $230 bulbs in 2 months (1st & 3rd not covered by warranty, one with 36 hours use !). After 100+ days of no usable projector and Acer advising me to take it up with the ACCC I have bought a Panasonic which is brilliant ! Acer...never again. My tail of woe for other potential acer victims : http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/acer-australia-c16988.html

This was the cheapest projector I could find (US$800) in 2005. It's not the brightest, and not the sharpest and the colours aren't the best - but I like and use it everyday! I have even dropped it 1.5m to the floor, when tripping over the cable while it was powered on, and miraculously it survived without a hitch. WOW! I wonder if all projectors are that sturdy!

Any Problems: The Lens is a little loose, so when you focus it, the focus slightly changes as your fingers leave the lens. My only real gripe with it.
