Kevin, Poole

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I didn't buy it for presentations but it is an acceptable alternative to a large TV, I tried it with an XBox, HD TV and 3D BluRay player and managed to get a 103" display on a magnolia wall. The menu allows you to adjust the image colour for the colour of your wall which works well. Excellent range of adjustments via the remote and it only takes 30 seconds to warm up to full quality. It can be just 6ft from the screen too - you could comfortably use it in the bedroom! There is no motion blur at all.
Bad points:
I think you you really need a proper white screen (under £40). Although it was more than adequate, HD isn't quite as good quality as the TV output (but I was using an 8M HDMI Cable). USB port doesn't allow Movie playback for which I would have given a 10/10 for. Not brilliant in Daylight so as summer approaches you will use it less and less. If you are going to use it as an alternative TV then I suggest a set of speakers as the sound from the unit is low quality and has to battle with the Fan which is noisy close-up. The 3D glasses are sold separately and are the more expensive "shutter" type - you will find then for around £20 if you look.
