          I had a cheap digital galaxy projector that I paid 220$ for and was shocked on how much this vivitek d350 blows it away for just over a 100$ more this projector is amazing for the price hi def image is super sharp and clear and really bright the sound coming from the projector is not really loud but doesnt really matter if you hook up surround sound the size of the projector is perfect not too big and is very easy to use you can also adjust picture many different ways

            We use this projector to project the words to songs at our church. The resolution is great and the brightness is sufficient to show up without dimming the lights.

              it is a good projector if you use it just with vga input. I bought it just because it has hdmi input but it has no use. if you use hdmi cable, u have to listen your movie or whatever u are watching with the projectors speakers and they are not enough.

              one another thing is turning it on. it is such a pain u have to push the power button a couple times and hold it almost 10 seconds to turn it on.

                I have two of these projectors: one for school to present photos and video to my students, and the other at home as a low-budget home theater. For the money, these have been durable, reliable, and adequate quality.

                Comments about Vivitek D530 DLP Projector:

                This projector is bright, & its surprisingly small & light.

                Even though the description does not mention it, it also comes with a case, however the case is very light and has no padding whatsoever, thus only handy to put the cables, remote and projector in one place, not so much for protection.

                A bonus is that on the bottom,near the CoG,there exists a standard 1/4" tripod screw thread, in top of the usual projector mounting threads. This means that in a pinch, you can use any camera tripod to mount this projector.

                Cons:
                Zoom is very limited, and the image throw is slightly longer/smaller than what I would consider useful in a small room.

                For the price this projector is superb. It has everything from DLP to an HDMI input. The picture is reproduced crystal clear in whatever resolution is thrown at it.

                The one downside was that it doesn't have a very good zoom. The zoom is minimal and so I had to mount this projector further back, thereby decreasing the brightness. Oh well, that's what I get for not doing enough research, good thing you are.
