Bryan, Buntingford Herts

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Get very good quality even from DVD player, never mind a Blue Ray. Have it with a surround sound system and It is like being at the cinema.
Have iot set up in a spare room as a bit of a 'cinema room'. Good for all the family or if you just want to get away by yourself.
Bad points:
Only down side is that there is a limited zoom, so you need to position it correctly to get the screen szie that you want. Worth making sure it 'fits' your room as you need to decide if it goes on the ceiling, in front of viewers, or behind.

Good points:
Excellent Picture Quality, plenty of options for connection and very compact.
Bad points:
Can be noisy at times, gets hot enough to cook eggs on and pretty unforgiving when it comes to placement, no horizontal keystone, no lens shift and limited zoom means the projector must be placed

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
image quality is incredible, even with ambient light.
Bad points:
if you want to use it as your primary entertainment system, you need an AV amplifier (and all the gubbings that go with it) if you have multiple inputs. Because the image is so big, Sky + HD is required otherwise TV is fuzzy.

Matthew, Fordingbridge Student

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The projector is very small, which meant I could transport it on a train to my new house.
The price is reasonable
The picture quality is excellent, I cannot identify any rainbow effect and neither can any of my friends.

Bad points:
There is a slight fan noise, but this is not disruptive.
I was reluctant to buy an expensive sound system to go with the already expensive projector so I tried a few different sets of speakers. Be careful not to buy computer speakers with a usb plug as obviously it will not be compatible. The difficulty lies in there being no sound output direct from the projector so sound is dependent on an output on your DVD player.

Rob, Farnham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use straight out of the box - no fiddling around with the settings was required to achieve a good colour balance. Picture quality is excellent for this price range. 'Rainbow' effects are very occasionally evident but never an issue.
Bad points:
I would have preferred an additional HDMI input for extra versatility and obviously full HD 1080p would be better - but at this price it offers excellent value and on balance I am glad I didn't spend a few hundred pounds more for a projector equipped with these features.

Steve, Peebles, Scottish Borders

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb image quality. HD movies and Sky HD programmes are simply stunning (football in HD on this has to be seen to be believed) as are games and upscaled DVDs via XBOX 360 and DivX movies streamed from pc. I did lots of research before buying this pj and despite the rave reviews elsewhere, I wasn't fully convinced that it would deliver. However, I needn't have worried, I was astonished when seeing the size and quality of the HD image. It's a fantastic piece of kit for the money. For less than the price of a medium sized plasma I have a 106" pin sharp HD image in my living room. I was going to upgrade my 36" crt to a large screen plasma, but have kept it and use it for casual tv watching, news etc., firing up the HD700x for each evening's viewing. If you're in the market for an entry-level HD projector look no further.
Bad points:
Some fan noise but not noticeable when surround sound system is on. SD tv through a Sky HD box can vary in quality, but that is down to the source not the projector. HD material is wonderful.
