This is a pretty fantastic projector, particularly for applications where you need to project, but it will be in a well lit room. Afternoon meetings where you have to dim the lights will put your audience to sleep. In college, I took an art history class from 2-4 where most of the class they used a projector and dimmed the lights. Five minutes into class, I was out. I'd like to think if they used this projector, I'd know how to spot the differences between a Monet and a Manet.I've used it for projecting video - both connected through a laptop HDMI cable and a Chromecast and it produces crisp, clear images. There is also a cinema mode if you will be using this for showing movies. However, it wasn't really designed with this in mind. It doesn't have an audio out, so if your source can't split the audio, you might need a splitter to push the audio to some decent speakers. Otherwise, you have to deal with the projector speaker, which isn't awesome, but serviceable if you don't care much about audio quality.The controls are very simple and intuitive. I was quickly able to adjust and fine tune the picture so it was exactly parallel, even when I had to point it at a slight angle. There are also lots of options to explore as far as things like the screen saver, default inputs, etc. Overall, this is a great projector, especially for those who will need to use it in a well-lit room, but maintain brightness in the picture.
