I had always owned TVs so I was very excited to give a projector a shot. After using the projector I have been completely sold on the idea of replacing my TV in my home theater setup. The main hardware feels well-built and is styled very minimally. On the back are 1 HDMI, 1 VGA, 1 component for video input, 1 USB port, as well as sound out via 3.5mm jack. The projector comes with a remote which has all the same controls which are on the body of the project along with some handy shortcuts buttons to change the pictures mode and settings, convenient for making changes to the picture from the couch while you're viewing. I setup the projector approximately 10 feet from the wall to produce the 100 image. The 1080p resolution in my opinion is sufficient for movies. The TV shows I watched looked sharp splashed up against my living room wall surface. While I can't test the long term aspects I can say that the images this projector produces are fantastic with colors that pop. The blacks are great too thanks to the LED technology. The brightness of the projector is more than enough for viewing with the lights on though, really dark scenes will become a little washed out. The lamp is rated at 50000 hours which is almost 6 year continuous use. But we'll see how it performs! The projector comes with built-in speaker which is okay, but definitely won't replace a dedicated system or sound bar. Overall, for the picture quality and price if you're looking into making a small investment to add a projector to your home theater setup I believe the is a great choice.
