This is a 4K projector and I know I posted one earlier at 720p but that was also because it was shipped from Europe.

However this one is coming from Asia so will be a few weeks waiting. But the reviews are going crazy for it. Supports 4K content and shoots out 1080p video from default. For the price it's worth getting as a back up

4K in maybe, but at 800x480 output resolution tho not worth it.

Wow thanks for that. That was very misleading and I didn't notice that. Will expire this deal right away so no one gets caught up. Thanks once again @FireLark
I know you have expired this but would a projector like this do as a living room projector for when watching films etc maybe not daily use but regular. I know the downside to most projectors was the bulb process but is it still like that nowadays? Any advice/suggestions on a budget projector for the above reasons welcome thanks

I have had a 720p led projector for about 5 years and it’s great. 700 lumen is fine for a room with decent curtains or blinds to block out most of the daylight. It has rainbow effect which is a little annoying but not a massive issue. What really makes this little box shine is the surround sound kit which is the most important thing IMHO for home cinema.

Here is the spec for mine: whathifi.com/inf…iew

480 just does not cut it, and though I do really want to upgrade to 1080p or 4K I am happy for now.

Unless you go for the £300-400 1080p bargains (Epsom, Optoma, BenQ or whichever it was recently- the W1050 or whatever) then 720p is the best compromise, and with LED bulbs it means no worrying about it dying on you, for 30,000 hours in my case.

Here he is the BenQ offer which seems the best 1080p deal: hotukdeals.com/dea…848

My best advice is to locate a decent 720 with MINIMUM 500 lm (not the ‘fake’ lumen scale a lot of cheap projectors use) for between £100-200 that is portable. Get used to this and its limitations, and within a year or two you’ll know exactly what you want in a 1080p or 4K.


EDIT: The other thing which I didn’t take into consideration was short throw because the room is long with a big white wall at one end. The 700 lm with curtains closed gives a decent brightness up to about 4m x 2.5m, from about 5m back. The picture gets smaller, clearer and brighter the closer you bring the projector to the screen.

One other thing, I’ve had friends with 1080p projectors comment on how clear and sharp mine is. I put this down to carefully focusing after it has warned up for a few minutes, just before watching the film. Oh, and get a cheap Hama tripod (used, 1.4m high will be fine) if you are not ceiling mounting yours!

Not to sure about films. I mean anything on DVD should be fine and retro gaming like the snes, N64, ps1 should come out great. But anything higher like blue rays will be down graded. I haven't had this myself but for the extra £7 I would go for the other post as it shoots out at 720p and to me paying that extra £7 would be worth it. Have not got time now myself to do this... but if you copy and paste the model number of this unit into the net and read the reviews and watch YouTube reviews then hopefully it may answer any questions

Hey thanks you for the information really appreciate it, a lot to consider but I like the fact you told me about the fake lumen scale I wasn't aware of that. I would be using a ceiling mount as it's out the way and neat (we are remodelling in France so have the opportunity to do a tdy install before plaster goes on etc. Top man thank you for your help.

I'll take a look thank you for that, I think I'd be happy with 720p as it's not going to be the main source of TV.
