The ones that claim 5000lumens and 1080p are terrible from my experience of buying them. Sadly a named brand is more reliable for projectors as the cheaper ones just lie about their specs.

Thanks, good to know
Iv just started looking at projectors and noticed a few of the cheaper less known brands say they cannot play some encoding due to licensing issues. Worth bearing in mind.

They don't really lie about the specs though. Unless your buying from china fleabay etc. 1080p support doesn't mean 1080p output, but it isn't the most honest thing to have in a title as users often don't know what to actually look for (the specs will always give the true values). Having said that, it's a bit devious for Epson not to have 768p directly in the title. It's not as bad... But still.

I have a 4xxx lumen cheaper 720p sub 100 projector. And it is indeed noticeably brighter than the 3600 benq I've just got rid of that was about 350 a couple years ago. It is branded though and from amazon. It was 98 down to 78 on a lightning deal, then a voucher for a 10er. Absolute steal.

This projector either way is expensive as 1080p should be a minimum for 200 plus mark imo
Agree with above comment, get a true wide-screen 720p native Led chinese projector, maybe made by crenova or excel van from eBay or Amazon, for about 100 .plenty bright enough in a dark room.

The one listed is just xga which is not wide-screen so you will never get 768 lines unless watching with the sides cut off

If you find these specs from a reliable and known brand, yes, it will be a better deal. If you're thinking about the Chinese ones, forget about it. My Chinese projector claims 3000 lumens. My LG projector is only 1000. There is a huge difference in between these 2, all in favour of the LG one. Some articles suggest the Chinese projector's resolution is only about 10% of what they claim to have. In one instance, I think it was Elephas, they claimed 1000 lumens and tests showed it only had 50.

3600 REAL lumens is very bright, you can do pretty much anything you want with it.
I strongly believe it is better to get a used branded one than a new Chinese projector. To compare, Anker, which is one of the reliable chinese brands sells their Nebula projectors for about £150-200 when on sale, the resolution is only 220 lumens on their projectors. While Crenova or Elephas claims of 5000 lumens for £200. I find it hard to believe this is true.

which brand ?
I have a BenQ 720p with a 120" screen with a xiaomi TV box and looks brilliant.

Bought a branded optoma hd143x 1080p for £500 and my 720p colour reproduction was better but not as sharp as the 1080p. After some research I got a darbee for 100 pound and overall the quality was better so sent the 1080p one back

Looks like most of the above comments misunderstand what this is.
It is a projector for presentations, either to large audiences, or in near daylight to small audiences.
The resolution is 1024x768 ...
... it is NOT wide-screen format (shape) (for tv, etc).


It ain't a home cinema projector!
For a professional presentation projector, this is actually a pretty good deal.

Sadly most of the specs on the cheap Chinese projectors are simply wishful thinking. Being not very bright (for a projector), you need a pretty dark room to make a big screen viewable (bigger picture = dimmer picture). And there is definite confusion between accepting a 1080p input and displaying 1920x1080 individually accessible pixels, let alone the optics being good enough to distinguish them.
But if you want a home cinema projector, you probably should find something else that suited you better for this sort of price. This is a different tool, for a different purpose.
This is the 4x3 format version of a Full HD projector that sells for £200 more than this version!
And please, spare us the silly idea that a £1/200 Chinese cheapie that appears with lots of different names is a better projector than the £465 full HD version of this Epson... even if it might be good enough for a very limited requirement.

But the Chinese projectors tend to lie about specs. Usually claim 5000/6000 lumen but true brightness always way lower, more like 50 ~ 100 lumen.
Disgusting!
