Please note this includes the screen

This one from Misco which is £176.24 + delivery charge does NOT include the projector screen. I can confirm from a friend of mine that works for Misco that they have 118 of these units. He says it is highly unusual to have that many OB (open box ) codes of any one item. Most OB's are nothing more than account customers returning unwanted or wrongly ordered goods.

I've been looking into getting this all morning (can't find anything the same for this cheap)

Noticed that the replacement lamps are around £50 so thats not too bad...

I think bulbs are reasonably priced. I just thought the deal was good. I will bow to others superior knowledge on the running costs etc. I don't need or want this product. I get the impression this is quite an old model, but it might be of use to someone.

notice resolution only 640x480...but then it is mega cheap!

I'm not too savvy when it comes to tvs/projectors etc.

I've got a PS3 and i'm using it on a Standard 28" widescreen tv.

If i bought this would it be a good replacement/upgrade from the standard def 28" widescreen tv.

and it comes with the screen aswell all for under £100

Wow, cracker of a deal:thumbsup:

Great spot!

90 day warranty confirmed by them too, not a 1month parts like it says on site

Looks like a good deal to me, but I am far from an expert....really tempted though as previously projectors always seemed to cost £400+...hmmmmm, will vote it hot but still deciding whether to buy it or not

With it being an electrical product isn't it automatically a 12month warranty?

it would be bigger...quality is in the eye of the beholder, it would be the same sort of quality image you have on your tv, but will be more affected by light in the room, and of course it being blown up to 3 times the size.

no as it is not a new product technically.

well the only time i watch tv/play games etc is if the football is on during the day (i've got blinds in my bedroom so that would help wouldn't it?) and i'm usually on my ps3 after midnight when i get home from my mrs.

Let me tell you this.

Misco do not offer a warranty on this product at all. They are not a retailer they are a reseller, but this might apply to business accounts only If it is 'dead on arrival', Misco will sort it out, otherwise you must go back to the manufacturer.

I have just come off the phone from Infocus Tel: 0800 0286470

They will offer a 2 year warranty from the date of your Misco receipt.

I got one of these pj's in June from Dell for about a ton from a UKHD tipoff and that did not include the screen. It's not a videophile's idea of a projector but for gaming and the odd movie it's brilliant. I took ours to France on a family holiday and projected onto a bedsheet in a room with no windows - giving an image about 120" diagonal. It was hugely popular with the kids for wii gaming when it rained, and in the evenings the grownups would sometimes watch a DVD. The sound quality is remarkably good, and the picture was sharp and perfectly watchable. Note there are no adjustments whatsoever apart from focus and volume - keystone correction? Colour balance? Forget it.

But I'm voting it hot, esp with a screen thrown in.

so you'd recommend it then?

hopefully i'll be able to talk my mrs or my parents into buying it for me "for xmas"

thats three different warranties offered from infocus, 3mths for new offered across the net, 1mth at Misco and now 2 years. is it defo 100% 2 years, does that inc parts and labour plus the bulb.

I have just bought one to hook a freeview box up and watch tele in bed, cheaper than a decent 15" lcd tv.

I was going to buy that little one that was shown in the gadget show for just under £300.

thanks

for what your getting fo your money snap it up, i dont need one and im contemplating it!
but no where to place it/project onto really, dont have the ocrrect set up to place a screen anywhere either, so think i might pass it up.

But yes it will be good, awesome to play ps3 so large for such a minimal price

I don't want to be hung drawn and quartered as everyone's unit fails after 32 days. Ring them yourself to verify.


I have no use for one of these at all, but I am getting tempted.

damn thats a long time!!

Thats about how much my TV gets used when my brothers not round.

Great info, thanks for posting it (have some rep!)

Still trying to decide whether it's worth buying, I'm looking primarily for something for PS3/Wii gaming, instead of an LCD I was planning on buying. Any advice appreciated!

thanks, just got one

I've just bought an Infocus projector with free extra bulb from ebuyer...it ran for five minutes and died, it's sat here waiting to be collected, paid £228 so was a decent deal.
This deal looks better but my original one was 2000 lumens and wasn't that bright..this one is 500????? not sure what to do now

guys this projector is total tosh ! there was another post saying how bad it is !
save up some more money and get a proper projector !

In the specs it says 720p/1080i which means its technically HD ready!

If thats the case then this is a bargain and i will be recommending one to a friend.

Need some advice...

I've got a 42" LG TV at home. Ideally looking to play Xbox 360 games on/watch the odd film. What size image will this project and still look ok?

Not sure whether to get it or just stick to playing on my TV? Anybody know how large the projector screen is...can't seem to find it.

Cheers!

I'm trying to convince myself I need one. If this was dedicated to playing Nintendo Wii on it would you advice still be the same?

yes but it will downscale the HD to only 640x480 ie 480i therefore not HD ready as it doesnt produce any HD images.

ahh right i get you now.

so from my calculations the screen is 56"x56"?

id stick with the 42" its big enough i would of thought, and quality on your LG will be much better, and also HD, unlike this projector

I agree it says that in the spec, but look at the inputs. Try and spot the HD one.....

I note that it states that the max resolution in 640 X 480. How would it scale output from a laptop, say XGA (1024/768) ? Would it display at all?

Thanks!

super_hoops1967;3212827

no worries, glad it makes sense. im still contemplating getting one myself for the bedroom, however means cant watch tv as no coxial...but still watch dvds...

I've got the Infocus IN24, and it says it can handle all sorts of resolutions, but they all get converted to its native 800x600. In fact, I've found the picture quality if better if you actually send in 800x600, then its not downscaled.

I would be concerned about the lumens, my projector is twice as bright but then I did pay three times as much, so there's no real issue there.

For the money though its a great way to get into projection as a video output. And it would be a perfect holiday TV, much smaller than a 14 inch portable, but ten times the picture size!
