hd projectors are really expensive, also the bulbs are expensive too.
Look at AVFORUMS
best for stuff like that, cause be alot of persons with HD projectors and screen shots and reviews.

I using a 1024x800 so get 720p, sweet, and bulbs should last 2 years 5 hours a night and cost 200.
#2
which projector was it
#3
was an infocus (something), can't remember up in the wall now, got all the anfo about it from avforum.
and looked around all the shopping sites, was and end of range, so projector came down to 270, sweet.

wow never knew bulbs were that much, sorta puts me off getting one...

Remember, quoted bulb lives are usually actually the half-life with respect to brightness:

if after 3000 hours, my bulb is 50% as bright as when I bought it: - I then have another 3000 hours before the bulb hits 25%

If the projector you bought was brighter than you needed (most are significantly brighter than is necessary for a medium-sized, dimmed room) you may very well be perfectly happy with reduced brightness and another 3 years' service from your (now beloved) projector.

what do people think of something like this one, it seems foreign but has anybody bought one similar, or should i just buy a cheap one from PC world/dixons

thanks

any opinions on the one i posted above,

well i dont know what kind of projectors you all looking at but i recently plunged for the HD65 for £416 from pc world this was priced matched with dixons at the time.

Must say i love it Xbox 360 and movies will never be the same in my house..brought a 108" motorised screen from fleabay.

One of me online gaming mates was after a projector and was looking at the ranges so i looked with him. We soon stumbled across the HD65 cheap and with good specs. I soon got projector envy and brought one for myself not quite knowing what kind of picture i was going to get. well the day came when i had to switch it all on and see what i had brought and to say i was blown away is a understatement.

If anyone wants pics of the actual screen pics to see wot its like ill upload some

The Xbox 360 has never been on so much as the nipper and his m8s all play halo3 online with a 4 way spilt screen they all say its like having 4 42" Tvs linked together.

Movies i dont think ive ever watched as many movies in a short space of time. i had mine for a while now and still cant believe how good it is. SD dvds are good ....HD is mindblowing.

Is one of my all time fav purchases.. If you can find the space for one ..stop thinking about getting one and get one. You will not regret it.
