Around 125-150 depending where you look online... not too bad.
#7
Have to say that this looks like a craking little deal if you need the screen as well. voted hot hot hot

Got this deal from play a few weeks ago when it was £430, so this is hot hot hot.

Fantastic projector and screen.

Go for it, you'll not regret it, I guarantee it.
#9
Hot offer - be aware though, the screen isnt worth anywhere near £199. I have the 92" version and it only cost me 80 sovs delivered.

Still a great PJ and a superb price, have some heat and rep.
#10
You b**tard lol. Right before Christmas as well. I will prob wait till next year to buy one with the interest from my ISA :D
#11
Although I don't have space for this in my room at the moment it's highly tempting.

I mean I could just project it to my white wall until I have more space right?
#12
you can, i did this for about 9 months but with a different projector. worked fine, you will notice an improvement with the screen for sure. Mine became noticeably sharper and colours stand out more. The wall was plenty useable for hd films and gaming though. Only got a screen as i found a cheap deal.
#13
I've already got a projector, it's a Sharp Notevision one, not HD compatible though. I bought a new HD TV not that long ago. If you have a good HD TV already you prob won't use this much.

On my 3rd projector now and never worried about the bulb prices as never bought one. Unless you are planning on using it as your main TV you wont get near the 3000 hours. Just think if you watched a film every night of the year and say a footy match mid week and two on Sunday and all the F1 gp's it will last over 3 years. Then the full HD ones will be this price and you will buy a new one anyway.

You maybe unlucky and your bulb goes. But never been a problem with anybodies I know of. If you give it plenty of ventilation never move it until cold and treat it like a new born child it should be fine.

Not sure if I agree with you on this - if you mean on standard def media/broadcasts then you're probably right, its often not worth the effort to use a projector. But if it is HD through Sky, HD gaming or HDDVD/Bluray then fire up that PJ everytime!

you are right but before i got my optoma projector i read up on bulb price's and im sure they are about £80ish.

would def recommend getting the right projector...i got mine at 100inchs on a white wall and looks amazing...can be a bit of a pain to set up but well worth it
#17

Projectors are ace. A 8 foot image in your home is awsome.

But, you have to have a darkened room, which means during the day with the curtains closed probably wont be enough.

You cant really use it like a normal TV, its more for one off things like sport and films. Use your normal TV for Eastenders and X Factor.

Plus have a think about where you would put it, your speakers and the cables.
#19
If you are not bothered about the free screen, I picked this projector up from Dabs.com yesterday for £365 (plus £5 postage) and 3% Quidco. :thumbsup:

FFS Chatz, enough already. It's only a charge for a returns, it's not like they won't accept returns at all or something sinister. Can you please take your personal play.com hate campaign somewhere else now, its old.

How far away from the wall does the projector need to be for the 84" screen?
#23
Hi guys, Firstly I would liketo say I have the optoma hd65 and its amazing!!! so amazing in fact I am in the process of setting up a projector business in York. I have met with suppliers from optoma and infocus and things are looking good at the moment.

Can I be cheecky and ask how many people have bought this and how many people own a projector??? this is a basic survey to see if the interest is still there during the credit crunch

Thanks
Steve

For screen dimensions go to projectcentral they have a calculator. Bulbs last a long time if you look after the pj properly, I am on my 3rd lcd projector and have not had a bulb go so far (touch wood). The last pj I sold had over 3000 hours on the bulb and it was still working perfectly fine.

Its not unusual for modern bulbs to last 8000 - 9000 hours. Its not the cheapest way to watch tv or gamming but its most certainly the best. I have a 9ft screen - the quality is not far off my 50" plasma and its projected straight onto a wall !

The most important think with these is you need a completely light controlled room. For the best results you need almost complete darkness and that means black out blinds or curtains. I have mine set up in my gamming room in the basement and have black out blinds.

Most people who get into front projection tend to change their PJ every 3 years or so in my experience thats certainly what I do, decent models hold their value reasonably well, I got around 40% of the value back on the last one I sold, what you have to factor in is that they wont have the sort of life span of a TV. Also they are not really kid or wife friendly, not as easy to operate as a TV and they have to be treated with respect, you have to let them cool down properly and not switch on and off before they have properly cooled down, thats how the bulbs and optics usually end of getting damaged.
#25
The bulbs r bought £100 from optoma. i got one of these its amazing wen u hook up the perfect sound. i thought it was a great price but this deal has been der for bout 3 months. i assumed it must have already been posted lol.
banned#26
Not so sure about the brightness rating of this projector, 1300 ansi isn't that great. You'll as mentioned, need a darkened room. In daylight just having the curtains closed won't do (unless you have proper blackout curtains). As also mentioned, these are more for watching films/sports events on - if you sit watching it all night every night as your main TV, you will come out with severe eye strain and headaches.

Few other things to note about projectors:
You'll need your own video and audio source, along with your own speaker setup directly from this source
There are annoying warmup and cooldown periods - each generally about 30 seconds
Projectors are generally quite noisy. Expect them to generate average PC type fan noise - this can get quite annoying
Bulb replacements depending on the projector are usually every 2000-4000 hours. This is not really that much (if its on 4 hours a day, the bulbs will last from 1.5 years to 3 years if you're lucky)
Dont forget mounting and cabling - typically these are best mounted in the roof (look up ceiling mounts, there are generic ones and ones specific to the model of projector) about 10 feet back from the screen (depending on the size you want)

Apart from that, these things are great for watching films/football on at night with your mates etc. BUT - it is NOT a replacement for a TV, anybody expecting to be able to use it as such will be extremely disappointed.
#27
You wont get eye strain far from it. ! We use one of these as a normal tv for gamming everything. It probably gets at least 4 hours use a day !

2000 - 3000 hours is very low for a LCD lamp thats been well looked after. Like I said I am on my 3rd pj and have never sold one with less than 3000 hours on the clock. The last one I sold went to a mate, he got another 5000 hours out of the original lamp before it went - 8000 hours in all.

I know lots of people who own these, I would actually saying its unusual for the lamps to die in under 5000 hours use but its all down to how well they are looked after and the way in which they are used. They can go in as little as 200 - 300 hours if the lamp is defective when installed or if the pj is used incorrectly. Its also worth mentioning that as a consumable item lamps are normally only covered for the first 3 months use.

Like I said its probably the most expesnive way to view stuff but its also the best by some considerable margin.

Anyway this is a nice little entry level projector I am sure people that get it will be impressed. Personally I would not use the screen, they are hassle to setup and not great unless you have a completely dedicated room to setup around the PJ - if you have a good quality wall painted with the right paint you get pretty much as good an image.

It's meaningless anyway - when something breaks down, the first place you go is the manufacturer for repair ! This is normally the fastest and easiest way to get your problem sorted - going back to the retailer is a last resort !

what projector do u have?

as far as gaming on a projector goes, how is motion and is there any lag compared to a normal tv
#31
Few points I'd like to make -
Don't worry about the warranty, Optoma has an excellent reputation regarding warranty cover, if you ever need it.
I've used mine, during the day, in the living room with just the curtains pulled and it's fine. Yes, it's better the darker the room, but it is certainly viewable in a reasonable light room.
Don't worry about the credit crunch, this is way cheaper than a big hd tv.......... at least that was my excuse to the wife :p God love her, she's really going to love me when I put the ceiling mount up :roll:
#32
Forgot to mention, take a detour over to avforums and search for the optoma projecter. Once you see the screen shots and read the posts, you'll be logging onto play.com to make a purchase.
#33
I have the Optoma HD65 projecting onto a 90" motorised screen.

Don't do what I did and mount the projector onto the ceiling at one end of the living room then fix the screen at the other.:whistling:

Fired up the projector and got a screen display some 120" across and way off the screen.

I had to take the pj down again and remount closer in to get the correct throw onto the screen.

You live and learn.

Everyone that has seen it has gone out and bought one, they are fab.
Use mine from Friday night to Sunday night for Sky music channels, sport, X-Factor, it's a weekend special.

Gaming on the Wii is fantastic too, make sure you buy a remote sensor bar for the Wii and you are away into another world :thumbsup:
#34
As it's a DLP projector does it suffer from 'rainbow' effects? We have an Optoma at work and, although it certainly ain't HD, I did notice quite a few rainbows...it was quite distracting, people should be aware of this!
#35
this looks like a great deal
#36
1300 ANSI lumens ! Would not go near anything with less than 3000

I disagree with your statement - often the retailer will send a replacement or a refund!
Also a bulky heavy item costs a lot to post back :whistling:
#39
Can someone explain why this pj is so much better than this one (over £100 cheaper and 3100ANSI and XGA which will do 720p just fine with some lines to spare?

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/266916/acer-pd-723p-3100-ansi-lumens-xga-d/

I got my motorised screen (72") for £35 delivered from ebuyer - so I dont think the screen is really worth all that much.
#40
Would this be good instead of a tv for the weans room, she plays ps2 and wii and watches sky can she still do this? sorry but i know nothing about projectors, as for a darkened room don't think her room has seen daylight for about a year.
