What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soft On the Edges Color was nice out of the box, as well as the WebOS and remote. You have to watch it in complete darkness for the best result just like any projector. It is connected to my AVR where my bluray and computer is attached. The image is projected to a 120 inch screen. If you are only using it for viewing movies then I would give it a 4 star, however if you are going to use it as a super giant computer monitor then you will be disappointed because the text are not sharp on the corners, and no matter how much tweaking or adjustment you do one corner will be sharp and the other will be soft. If adjust that soft corner then the other corner will turn soft, and vice versa. Same thing when you are looking at pictures. I don't know if that's the drawback of UST projectors or mine just have an issue. But you will hardly noticed it if you are just watching movies, but even though, it's annoying. On dark scenes it is not as black as I would like it to be. Since I am a newbie when it comes to projector, I can not totally say that it is the projector's shortcoming, because I am just using an outdoor screen that is hanged on the wall of my living room. I am positively sure it is going to be different if I use a dedicated hometheater projection screen. That is why I am just giving it 4 star for watching movies and 1 star for using it as a computer projector.

Can it be harmful to the eyes since it is a laser?

Asked by: Javier01
It is recommended that you maintain a distance of more than 5 to 7 times the diagonal length of the screen. If you watch the screen at a close distance for a long time, your eye sight may become worse. To protect your eyes avoid looking directly into the bright light from the unit. ^CP
