This projector rocks. As does the service and warranty. The picture is outstanding -- bright, vibrant, detailed. We watched the Incredibles on it and it was breathtaking (and this is projecting onto an off-white wall). The company ahs great service -- I've called several times to ask about picture adjustment and such and they were great. Also had two minor warranty repairs, both of which were incredibly fast turnarounds, no questions asked. Just fabulous.

Any Problems: Fan noise is noticeable in small room. After two years of roughly 4-5 hours/night viewing, we had to send it back to have service for excessive fan noise (color wheel and cooling fan...quick and easy repair).

Having spent hours on the internet looking at projector specifications and prices, and also trying a Sanyo XW20A and Philips UGO S-Lite, I found the Optoma 735. It has all the necessary connections and XGA resolution. After installing the 735, I found the picture quality, colour and contrast to be superior to the above Sanyo and Philips and excellent for my home cinema use. It can be attached to a standard camera tripod and still provides a smooth picture. I am still only projecting onto a cream wall, and expect even better results with a proper screen. Overall a very impressive product at a low price.

Any Problems: None

Very Happy. We watch DVD Movies with my kids on a white wall all the time and the picture is excellent.

Any Problems: Projector doesn't always sit right when layed on a flat surface. Can be adjusted but still a little tricky. Although a higher Contrast Ratio would've been nice, this is an excellent projector for $2200

This unit has a very sharp and bright image that is very impressive considering the small size of the unit. Very easy to set up as all the necessary cables are supplied.

Any Problems: The red channel is a little weak and there is not much way to compensate for it.

Review by Bobby

The best picture quality I ever seen. 200% better that evry LCD projector. Picture was very sharp and bright even if I turn on upper lights!, colours was very good. Besides it's quiet. Just price could be better, but it worth to buy it.

Any Problems: no problem

Nice projector on paper. Different story in use.

Any Problems: Constant colour wheel and lamp problems. Typical Chinese contruction not as good as Japanese, European or American makes.

I have been using the Optoma EzPro 735 in my rental stock since its release and never had a problem with it. It is light, portable and very wasy to use. My customers love it and it is constantly asked for.

Any Problems: NO!

Review by Mike

I had very strict spec requirements (DLP, XGA res., all TV broadcast types video compat., 35 db or less fan noise, at least 1000 lumens, min. 400:1 contrast, and 4:3 aspect) when I started looking around, and the only 2 projectors which met them all were the Optoma 735 and the Mitsubishi XD200. Though I would have preferred the XD200, i didn't want to pay another $1500 for 900 more lumens and PIP. This unit is smaller and lighter, and has both 4:3 and 16:9 aspects (XD200 is 4:3 only). I would very highly recommend this projector to anyone wanting the best of both worlds for presentations and home theater.

Any Problems: None.

Review by Q

Let me start by stating the goals I had in mind before buying a projector. I was looking for a projector that I could use for business but was good enough to take home on the weekends to watch DVD’s and regular TV. It was also critical that I found a projector that could accept 480p (for progressive scan DVD players) and HDTV. I also decided to go with a DLP projector as it did a much better job of handling video in my opinion compared to LCD. I spent a good month researching projectors and seeing demos before deciding to purchase an Optoma EzPro 735. The EzPro 735 met all of these criteria and far exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality of the picture it produces. I have had the EzPro 735 for a few weeks and have been using it at home on weekends to watch DVD’s and TV. I don’t see any reason to spend more money or buy a larger projector. The Optoma EzPro 735 weights only 3 pounds, produces an amazing image, and handles 480p and HDTV signals. I specifically purchased a progressive scan DVD player to test out this machine and was blown away by the quality of the image. The projector produces a fabulous image from a DVD player that in my opinion rivals going to the movies. I have experienced all of this by simply projecting the image on a smooth wall in my living room without a screen. This is the kind of projector that is so small you can take it with you to a friend’s house to watch a game as long as they have a space on the wall and no direct lighting on the projection area. Before buying this projector I was considering purchasing a rear projection HDTV. I am now seriously contemplating buying my own EzPro 735 and dedicating it for home use. Why bother with a 300lb big screen HDTV?

Any Problems: I have not encountered any problems with the Optoma EzPro 735. After reading Projectorcentral’s review regarding the EzPro 735’s trouble handling the color red I could notice the color red slightly overpowering the other colors buy it was negligible. I would recommend this machine to anyone.
