That is terrific kit! ..tempting.
CeX do a 2-year guarantee on electronics as well. I had no issue with getting a refund from them when something I bought from broke after a couple of weeks, so I'd say they're normally pretty reliable, but I just wonder whether a projector's bulb is actually covered by their guarantee?

2yrs warranty. At the price they sell projectors they are the go to guys for them. I bought all mine through them at quarter the RRP apart from my Panasonic. You should give it a go. If it's not good then you can refund at your local cex under distance selling goods act or something. I refunded many items as they were not as described.
tempting for the saving but alas, can't justify it atm.
Hot.

Consumables are not. If these bulbs are not replaceable then they may be covered. These bulbs will outlast your tech. In 8yrs this may feel like 720p to you

Is that not 1000 lumens only? I do have an LG 1000 which is great, but can only be used in the dark. Which is fine for me, as I've paid only £100 for it in used conditions, but £500+ seems a bit too much to me if it can only be used in dark. I think I had a look at that projector and found it quite good but was about £700 used, a bit too much for me.

Yeah it can only be used in the dark(mines in the conservatory so even the best projectors would struggle in the day) , but not a problem as after 9.00pm when kids have buggered off to bed is the only time I can use it anyway. Mine was £493 last prime day which was bang at my £500 monthly impulse spending limit

I thought so. Was hoping to use it as a replacement for my TV. Clearly I need to spend well over £1000 if I want something to replace the tv.

Long throw, short throw, ultra short throw? What size image do you want to achieve, where can the projector be placed, is it for gaming so need a low input lag (projectors are typically poor compared to TVs), will you be using headphones via Bluetooth or AV, or will you be using speakers.
If only there’s a way to know the residual life on the bulb... it could be cosmetically pristine but 10,000 hours in already.

The epson eh-tw6100 I posted for 280 earlier is a great projector. Bright and vibrant colours. Retails at £1600 so it's very premium. Of course it's for movie watching as uses a halogen bulb so 5000hrs lamp life.

If you plan to use one all the time then get an led or laser lamp projector which have 20,000hrs lamp life. Make sure it's a well known brand and check for legit reviews as well as YouTube reviews.

Alot of people buy cheap chinese projectors that claim 4k but have native VGA resolution.

I use my philips screeneo projector most the time as it has sound quality as good as a large decent portable speaker. I take it holidays with me.. the built in player is dated so I use WDTV to play files through and also plug in fire tv stick which is powered by the 2 usb ports. The device is only 720p though.


The lg pf1000u is great as its 1080p and has built in freeview HD tuner. But no smart features like the international model to install netflix. As its tiny device the fan is kinda high pitched. The built in speaker is also worse than your average phone speaker so you will need an external speaker


If you tell me your needs then I'll see what I can find.

I bought the Optoma HD143x for £439 from amazon and really happy with it. 1080p, 3D, really bright, good quality speakers and apparently goes up to 300” and has a lamp life of 12,000 hours.

I’ve had it up to 120” in the front room and it was amazing, very impressive for the money

Hoping to give it a go when it’s a bit warmer in the garden and it requires a screen 6.7m x 3.8m screen, curious to see how it will look though!
Sharpharp27/02/2020 22:10

Has 20,000 hours lamp life. No maintenance cost I should think. Only any warranty repairs. As long as it hasn't been bought via currys or pc world you should be able to get it repaired via dell if still under warranty.

I got given a used Dell 4k monitor last year. Last week backlight stopped working and warranty shows 3yrs warranty runs out in may this year. I spoke to dell support via whatsapp. They checked everything and finally when they were going to arrange a replacement they realised it's been sold at currys. They said I need to go with them as currys do their own warranty. As I dont know original owner I dont have receipt

Hey thanks for the advice. To be honest I have never owned a projector add to that none of my mates ever have. I do have a nice telly so wanted a decent one that I would enjoy watching movies.

I finally brought my own house and moving in next month. It has a basement type room about 5m by 2.5m and wanted to this has the gaming and movie room with nearly all gaming done on the telly.

Can't afford 4k one just yet so more then happy with native 1080p.

This is my short throw one

Optoma GT1080E Full HD 1080p Short throw 3000 ANSI Lumens DLP Projector - White amazon.co.uk/dp/…PEW

I am busy now but there are websites comparing throw ratios

Basically if you want a 100 " display how far back so you need to be.

If ratio is 2.5 to 1 you need to be 250" back

This short throw I put a metre or so in front of the wall and it fills the wall and I sit behind it in the couch

So you can use the throw ratios to plan your furniture.

If you are happy to ceiling mount it then will be easier. But I like to take mine to different rooms too.

Congrats on your house purchase. It's very difficult competing with fellow buyers and dealing with 2 faced estate agents. If it's for a gaming basement then it will be dark so you can get away with led like the lg pf1000u with a separate sound system or laser projector like this one. I'd go for ultra short throw. So when people walking around there wont be shadows casted on screen

Thank you, I will look in to ratio little more and I don't mind ceiling mounting as any excuses to drill some nails and use the tool box I never got to use in rental houses.

Speaking as a Hd141x owner, there's no way you'd get 12k hours out of a bright bulb like that. We tried to leave our projector in eco mode to stretch the bulb life out but they deteriorate pretty rapidly. We're at 2k hours now and the projector must be in bright mode with a reduced 80" image (down from 130" when we first set it up) to be usable.

We recently upgraded to a xiaomi ultra short throw laser projector (£900 iirc on a deal) and it blows away the hd141x for brightness even with a larger picture and a 1500 lumen output (measured, 5000 claimed).
