    "I am not an audio-visual expert. I spent HOURS scouring reviews and watching you tube videos before I pulled the trigger on this, my first projector. I am using it for backyard movies on a sixteen by nine foot white PVC screen, and it is awesome. Blows everybody away when they come over for backyard movie night. I was worried about rainbow effect. And now I almost wonder if it's a myth! I've asked literally everyone who has watched our set-up, and out of 50+ people (and counting), young and old, not one person has reported seeing rainbows. I'm using a 'flexiwhite' screen made from a white PVC material which makes a spectacular picture with bright clear color and deep dark blacks. No complaint whatsoever on color or contrast. We do, admittedly, mostly watch kids stuff--so lots of animated movies--but in all content, we've got no complaints and have used only 'out of the box' picture settings. We start the show right around sunset and it does absolutely fine with dusk/twilight lighting and normal suburban background lighting of cars and neighbors' houses, porch lights, etc."

    "This projector is incredible! No matter how big your house or office is, it's too small for this thing at maximum - this is a legit movie theater level projector, able to project up to 200". This makes it somewhat overpowered for a home or office use, which is a good thing, as it means the video screen is crisp, clear, and moreover, very bright. This is a great buy!"

    " love Epson but this projector is substandard. The styling is excellent and it feels like a solid machine. The controls and features are easy to understand, it has good color fidelity and it has a nice slide door to manually screen out the projector light. But the image quality is poor when it comes to displaying text. I compared this projector with the ViewSonic PJD5155 3300 Lumens SVGA HDMI Projector and it wasn't even close. I placed them side by side about six feet from a screen and manually focused both to make sure they were tack sharp. The ViewSonic, at the same price, is light years better in image quality and sharpness and the audio is slightly better with a better bass. True, the ViewSonic looks clunky compared to the sleek Epson, but this is all about image quality. Sorry to say, if you are presenting PowerPoint slides with 14 pt. text, do not get the Epson VS250 or you will be disappointed. Get the ViewSonic PJD5155 for the same price"

The resolution is amazing both for watching movies and playing games. And it easily connects to our sound system. It's a little on the pricey side but definitely worth it. "

    "I've had this projector for a couple months now and I really love it. It's fantastic for movies--we have movie nights over at our house now, and people are very impressed by how compact and bright the projector is. Higher resolution would be nice for detailed presentations with small text, but its not a problem for images and movies. Make sure to get a good screen for this. We got blackout cloth and stretched it with bungees to make a 120" screen and it's just like being in the movie theater. "
