Love it. (edited)

Any Problems: Sometimes dust goes inside the projector and I have to open it to wipe it. Not that hard.

Amazing unit. Worked right out of the box, color is crisp and clear, etc. Using with cable, a PC, xbox 360, and stereo. I am not a fan of HDMI projectors and this one with its component and s-video inputs is a great alternative.

The good: Very good price - got mine for $286 with one extra bulb. Replacement bulb price of $38 or less is a far cry from the normal $250-$500 for other projection units I've had experience with. Good unit for displaying video games (WII, etc) or DVD's and will project a huge picture in a darkened room (10 ft tall with projector about 15-18 ft from the wall). However, the image looks somewhat grainy. Moving the projector closer (7 ft. from wall) gives a real clear picture about 4 ft. tall. The not so good: Unit does not seem solidly built. Video and audio jack on the side move somewhat when attaching cables - like the chipboard inside is not solidly mounted. Plastic housing seems to be somewhat thin - I wouldn't want to drop this unit. Fan is pretty loud if you are viewing something with no audio, however, any sound from a movie, commercial, etc will drown it out fairly well. 2500 lumen rating would indicate that it is pretty bright. In reality, you'd better close your blinds and drapes and turn all the lights out to get a decent projection that isn't washed out. When you turn this unit off, the fan will run for about 10 minutes before it shuts down. If you decide that you want to use the projector again after immediately turning it off, you may be disappointed. Trying to push the power button to turn the unit back on during this time doesn't seem to work. I guess you could unplug it and plug it back in to reset, but that might be hard on the bulb. Like other reviews have stated, the keystone adjustment range could be better. This means that if you decide to try to mount this projector very close to the ceiling (within 4-6 inches), then the downward angle to your screen or wall will probably be so sharp that your picture shape will not be perfectly rectangular. Getting a longer mount (12 inches or more) will help. Will work well if you just plan on placing this projector on a lamp table, etc. Overall, if you are on a tight budget, want a brand new projector and worry about the future expense of bulb replacement, then the Digital Galaxy DG-852 for you!

Review by chris

ok projector.

Any Problems: Here is what i found out a few weeks of using this projector. keystone adjustment could be more, i don`t like the fact that the projector has to be low from the ceiling, i like it to be closer. when i have my cable box connected to the projectors component jack ports the picture turns blue every few minutes and the sound goes off at the same time. picture has good color but is fuzzy. only has one lcd not three. component jack ports are loose and you can not use monster cables because they don`t fit. very loud fans. speakers sound like head phones. there is no zoom so you have to move the projector closer to the screen if you want a smaller picture. buyer must pay for shipping even though the projector was not working since the first day you bought it.
