Set exactly 12' away from my 128"screen. Used ECO mode for 2D that was plenty bright enough in the dimly lit room. Awesome colors without adjustment. Watched a great NCAA game on a 128" screen in my basement game room. Feed was from Time Warner, and though the experience was impressive to my family, I was a just a bit disappointed with sharpness of the image--- but it turns out, this less that stellar image was due to the cable feed, and NOT this projector. Keep in mind that I am demanding a lot of image quality with such a large screen. Everything changed when I played a quality Blu-Ray movie. AWESOME detail, very fine and very sharp. 3-D as good as the theaters! So, it turns out that using a good 1080P source, this projector EXCEEDS my expectations in terms of image quality. Good black levels, very good color, and I just can't imagine any 1080p projector with sharper/better definition than this. All at an entry level price! Sure, the placement options are limited for this short(-er) throw projector, and the built in 2 watt audio is not so hot, but what a value! Just make sure that the throw distance will work for you, and expect to connect a decent audio system. For what I paid, this is a tremendous value that overall fully merits 4 + 1/2 stars!

I was really hoping this would replace my eight year-old Sony VPL-HS20 with a bright, 3D, sharp image; just not the case. Yes the image is bright, but too bright, and when you reduce the brightness you lose the "pop" to the picture. Graphics are not sharp, and no amount of calibration will get them to where I had hoped they would be. The loud fan noise and very poor blacks is where I had to draw the line and take it off my ceiling. It's fine in a kid's toy room. It's fine as a novelty, to watch a big picture. But, if you want it in a dedicated home theater, save your time, and be prepared to spend more money.

Comments about Epson Home Cinema 2030:

I was hesitant to go to the projector system so didn't want to go to the high end model until first trying an entry level model. This projector does everything I want it to and the picture is great! I won't be "upgrading" because I don't need to. Excellent product. Easy to use and nice features. And the folks at ProjectorPeople.com shipped this to me the day after it was ordered and at a great price, too.

    Comments about Epson Home Cinema 2030:

    I feel the picture is bit different and inferior to my 720 P Optoma.
    Placement & position\keystone was quite hard, even with my experience, i had to move projector mount closer\adjust drop tube and move angle\Keystone for a while before picture is 90% acceptable, in 16:9 mode it does not throw the picture to fill the 106 inch scree but its closer to 60% of the screen which makes me screen, some sources, i.e Roku in certain content did fill up the screen when setup in 1080P but blue ray DVD with 1080P output via Herman Karndon receiver HDMI was bit narrow then i like.
    I would recommend projectors with greater flexibility in trow and lens shift if you want to avoid hard time during setup, placement is paramount/get a good mount and calculate your placement details before ordering to make sure it will be suitable.
    The price is right for this projector and the replacement lamp cost much lower , which ultimately persuaded me to buy it along with special offers.
    Only had it for a week but hopefully i can figure out my mount issues and try to fill the 106 inch fixed screen with 1080P input, at which optoma was good at.
    overall noise on the fan and low output speakers are worth comparing if you don't have receiver sound system.
    The picture is acceptable and good if not outstanding, for this price its a good projector.
    I am happy with the retailer, which took time to discuss the projector and promotions, called me to discuss shiping and promotions and shipped the product on time, lifetime product support is another plus, i would just look for better mount with drop tube then one that is bundled sometimes, this projector does need to be mounted with drop tube which can be sitting lover and closer to screen if that is an issue look for rear desktop placement see if that works for you.
