I returned the product the same day with out any hesitation.
Reviewed in Canada on 28 November 2019
The throw distance and zoom: my basement is wide but lacking in length which impacts the distance I am able to place my projector. My distance came less than the minimum distance specified for 120 inch but I was able to get 120 inch - impressive.
The picture quality is really good and it is light years better than my 1080p old projector.
The holes for mounting the projector to the ceiling has a really weird placement. It's like they intentionally did not want the projector to be used with universal mount besides something they made or collaborate with to make. However, I was able to get my Amazon Basics ceiling mount to work with it. Although it took me about an hour and a little finessing to get it.
The heat: this thing generates enough heat such that you can feel it if you seats below the mounting location of the projector.
The noise: the projector does make a whole lot of noise. But when your movie starts it gets buried in the sound from your movie.
I think this is a really good projector for spaces were you can control the amount of light in the space especially in dark rooms. It's doesn't do so well in light but it is usable.
I returned it as I am hoping to see a price drop during black Friday or boxing day and I will jump on it without hesitation .
Leave a like if you found this review helpful. No compensation gotten for it. Thanks
1st unit was ordered Jan. 10, it arrived and had bulb pop and smoke shortly after powering on.. looked great while it worked.
2nd unit has sound but very dim picture. Box had been opened and re-sealed. Hmmm? Could have been someone else's faulty return.
On same timeline, my Elitescreen order arrived after 2 weeks with no hardware to put it together. 2 more weeks to get parts. Amazon hasn't worked for me upgrading my home theater. Maybe just my bad luck. Takes a lot of patience. Hope to have it all working in a couple weeks. I thought I did enough research originally, but have no screen or projector working yet. Now recommend going in store for anyone putting together a home theater.
Final update. Feb. 8th. Elitescreen Aeon 3d grey screen parts arrived yesterday. 3rd Benq ht 3550 projector works great! Benq was from another store, though. Very happy with upgrade!
