Personal Experience
This projector is good for computers, but not-so-good for video/home theater setups. First, there's no zoom, so you have to move it around to adjust picture size. Also, video images are grainy, ghosty, and way too cold (color temp is set too high, and is unadjustable). In addition, the unit is not compatible with outboard video processors like the highly useful DVDO I-Scan. The unit re-sizes video images, and leaves a blank, unusable perimeter around the image. Fan noise is also high, and can heat the immediate area around the unit. I bought this on eBay new, and after three weeks with it, I'm done. Up for sale again.

Problems
Not compatible with DVDO I-Scan Video Processor/Line Doubler.
