I have no experience with the H5382BD, the newer model.Called Amazon support and they helped me out immediately.5 years ago.Second one I received worked great for just over a year .We were looking for an inexpensive cinema projector for a home theater.I’m very happy with it.I had an Epson 2040 picked out and thought I was for sure going with that.We had the projector suspended above our bed and a bit of the glass dust came down.This replaced our movie watching on a 17 inch laptop.Honestly, you can’t beat the picture for the price.Then we heard a loud pop and it went dark.However, when I attempted to plug in an Apple 4K TV, the HDMI input failed, and now I might as well get a new one.LooksGreat-looking device.For the past five days I’ve had the best theater experience of my life.I like this projector, but it could be great with a few design tweaks.If you can manage making adjustments, this may be perfect for you.Its out of the main area you look at normally but is still kind of annoying at times.Dark colors obviously disappear in a well lit room so when I when I watch a movie I have all the lights off except for one or two lamps.Why? They put together some of the worst panels I’ve ever seen.I am using a 100" screen and have no physical adjustment available for the mounting location, so with the lens adjusted for smallest possible screen size, I still need to reduce the zoom by 1 notch to fit my screen.
It has the biggies, HDMI, SVideo, 2 VGA, RS232, and the standard composite, But no component.I generally hook it up to my laptop via HDMI cable and use a 1/16th cable to connect to a small PA system.It shoots 720p 15 feet onto my living room wall.I am not a a/v snob who inspects every pixel, but the picture is great, sharp, bright etc and for the price and my use, it works great! I am sure you could spend double to triple the price for a projector that is 5% better, but I think that would be un-necessary.I have mine on a shelf above the couch about 11′ from the wall and it’s about a 90” sized picture on the wall.When I finally settled on the Acer is was night and day difference on color and contrast out of the box.This is definitely an upgrade.I don’t even have a screen, just use white wall.I depend heavily on reviews before I purchase items, so I thought I would help post as well.Colors are great.I had bought an earlier Viewsonic DLP and the strobing/RBE on it was so terrible, I believed that I was not a candidate for DLP projectors.I then had a look of sample videos and images of this projector, I always had a hesitation before ordering it because I found that most of the sample image/video was kind of washed out.I’ve had it for about a week and used it for just under 10 hours.Have not had to replace the bulb yet.Wide variety of inputs.if I go from a movie to the windows screen, it will take a few seconds to show words clearly.I had a projector a couple years ago that had this problem, and I was able to see rainbows with the old one.Most decent projectors were in the thousands, and after lots of research I came across this one.I really enjoyed it all around: nice and clear projection, easy to use, seemed fairly sturdy.12×6 ft), primarily to play ps3 games and watch some movies.
Had to hook it up to my stereo system because the speakers on the unit are pretty bad, but the picture quality is impressive and it works great for watching movies and tv.But the "rainbow effect" is very strong with this one, and it was a deal-breaker for me.It’s cheaper then trying to get a TV anywhere close to this large.This thing over performed in my books.Easy to use.I have a room that is 10.I have it set up in my living room right next to my sliding door.It does need to be dark out to see clear picture but we expected that.I was disappointed to find that the 2nd one seemed to have the same problem that I was putting up with from the first one.So I’m at 85"now, more than enough still.We tried it out on our garage door and was surprisingly impressed! You can tune out the squares on the garage, most people wont care and just be amazed you are watching a movie theater sized movie or sporting game outside on your garage, lol.-HDMI port available for connecting DVD/BluRay/game consoles/Chromecast/Amazon Fire Stick-Price pointCons:-Sound quality is not good, but I’ve worked around this by plugging it into my sound bar For the price, the picture is acceptable.For better sound, I purchased an ION Audio Block Rocker Bluetooth speaker and an audio extension and a long outdoor extension cord with power strip since I purchased the projector to watch movies in our backyard.We prefer watching movies/shows on this compared to our TV.use it every night.I have it hooked up to one computer or another and it gives outstanding performance for its price.it’s very bright even with lights on.If you need a projector for up close projecting, like within ten or fifteen feet, get a companion model that is "short throw.
