          We have lunch time meetings in a country club ballroom with lots of light even with the curtains drawn. Any kind of projected image was impossible to see UNTIL NOW!!! Great price, easy to use right out of the box and EXCELLENT visibility of powerpoint presentation with photos and graphs. Intuitive remote with laser pointer.

              This Optoma 500 projector is the most crisp and clear home theater projector I could have purchased. The salesman was so knowledgeable and helpful. We went into B&H thinking we needed one type of projector and got the greatest assistance from our salesperson. The installation was easy and it is user friendly. Our home theater will easily sit 12 to 14 people. Our only problem is we could use a room that would hold around 30.

                Comments about Optoma Technology EH500 Data Series DLP 3D Projector:

                I use several large venue LCD projectors, mostly rear screen, but chose this one as a front projection monitor. I chose it for it's brightness but especially for its high contrast ratio. It is only slightly brighter that the LCD unit it replaced, but the contrast ratio makes it much easier for the users to read. Throw ratio is too long and there were some detail issues, example: the battery cover on the remote pushed a battery off its contact if the cover was closed. I had to use a Dremel tool to grind off some of the plastic so the cover could close. Overall, I am pleased.

                Amazing picture on16'x9' outdoor inflatable screen.
                Bright enough to start movie just after sunset and it just gets better as it gets darker.

                    Great Bright Image, beautiful color

                    Comments about Optoma Technology EH500 Data Series DLP 3D Projector:

                    Unit was smaller than anticipated (a good thing) but packs a lot of imaging power. 3D was good, but took a bit to respond to 3D Bluray and initiate. I preferred another manufacturers glasses, felt like the Optoma glasses gave a slightly darker image. Still perfectly acceptable. Everything else set up fine with no issues. Still had an excellent picture with room lights on. Loved the number of input options. Purchased for work but will definitely be watching movies at home as well. Pricey but think this will deliver top notch client presentations.

                    Very bright and resolution is incerdible, picture looks great with a skylight above and shades half up during day light hours with lamp on eco+ mode. Disappointingly the Wireless IO Gear 5x2 HDMI was not compatible with this projector but was able to use Gefen GTV-WHD-1080P-LR-BLK Wireless for cord free hook up. Fan is quiet on eco+ mode, a bit louder on standard lamp setting.
