Manufacturer Description for the InFocus IN80EU
Resolution
The InFocus IN80EU is aFull-HD 1080p DLP digital home cinema projector. The IN80EU utilizes the DarkChip1 DLP chipset by Texas Instruments, technology which is unsurpassed in its ability to deliver deep black levels, pure whites, and subtle grayscale details.
Brightness & Video Performance
The IN80EU is bright enough to deliver film-standard, D6500K color accuracy even with Ambient Light or daytime viewing. Producing video optimized brightness up to 1500 Max ANSI lumens this projector is spectacular and offers the flexibility to reduce brightness to improve black level performance in a dedicated home theater without dimming the picture.
Connectivity
The InFocus IN80EU is virtually future-proof thanks to onboard HDMI 1.3 inputs with Deep Color support. This new HDMI standard can display up to 1.07 billion colors for a smooth picture without color band artifacts. The IN80EU also hosts comprehensive connectivity & I/O, including DVI, and PC input, screen triggers, RS232, and an IR repeater input. (Deep Color requires HDMI 1.3 compatible media player & source material.)
Video Processing & Scaling
True video magic projected by the IN80EU is thanks in-part to Pixelworks DNX 10-bit video processing. This is the same outstanding processing, de-interlacing, and scaling performance as the award-winning InFocus Play Big IN7x series. The IN80EU hosts unrivaled built-in scaling support at this price-point for 2.35:1 aspect ratio, for a true Cinemascope/widescreen without an external scaler (requires anamorphic lens, available separately)

Only £353 from the same Luzern company on Amazon marketplace: amazon.co.uk/gp/…hed
pretty old bit of of kit this...seems ok though for the money perhaps...
It is probably better to buy from Amazon because I think that sellers are obliged to offer the same refund and exchange policy as amazon themselves now. At least that was the impression I got from Amazon when I was trying to sell some books.

Yeah, that and the fact that it's cheaper by about £10.

Optoma gt750 -3d is the one for this kind of viewing, i am told.
At ~£200 for a lamp, you need confirmation of lamp hours used on these before you buy!
Also, be wary of any lamp life <100 hours as this could have been reset to make it more attractive to buyers.

That is the one thing that has put me off buying projectors is the cost of the replacement lamps. This seems to be the same scenario's with printers where the printer is cheap but the ink is dear - however everyone buys compatible ink. Do they do compatible lamps for cheaper?

In general no, I doubt the very small market could sustain third party manufacturers.

To be quite honest, the cost of the lamp is pretty insignificant over it's life. Arranging a room suitable for viewing a projector is likely a far greater hurdle for most people.
Didnt realise the bulbs were quite so expensive!

Found one for 92 though... amazon.co.uk/INF…1-2

There are generic lamps for most models now - my Sony VPL-HS50 bulb finally ran out this year (it's probably 7 years old now) and I bought a generic lamp instead of the genuine one. Was only £70 and works exactly the same - been running for a few months now and is still working. At £10 a year, I'm not worried about the cost of running it.

Expecting to replace the projector rather than the bulb next time around (HD, 3D etc.)

This is what I'll be doing. I paid £400 for an 800 x 600 projector some time ago, it was quite high range at the time. But there is no point me buying a new bulb for it, even if I got the bulb as cheap as the projector (which I can't) the same £400 could get me something much better (I think one of Optoma's 3d projectors is around £400?).
Hi guys, I had a projector for years, 1st, the heat is madness! 2nd a new bulb cost me £250 & lasted 1.5 years! So in the end I just got a large LCD TV and I would ever go back!
A projector simply isn't a viable alternative to a large screen TV for most people. You have to view it in a dark room if you don't want washed out pictures and turning it off and on a few times a day as TV's tend to be treated will see the bulb life greatly reduced. OTOH for someone that wants the best possible home cinema experience, a large screen TV is never going to give the results of a well set up projector.

For the grownig demographic of people who don't own a TV, (save on the licence fee) who get all there media on line etc the Projector is the best option for a large screen. Try buying a 50" Monitor at high resolutions

As a projector owner, I can simply say:
a) you still a license;
b) a projector would rarely work as a replacement for a telly - Would you really want to watch ALL your favourite shows with a hot fan blowing in your living room every day? Also, projectors need 60 seconds or more to warm up, and at least that to cool down - it's just too much hassle as a replacement for your friendly Bravia/Samsung/Panny.
I imagine most people would choose to have both a TV and a projector; not everyone wants to live with a large TV.

Not true, if the projector has no tuner and you don't have any other equipment at home with a tuner then No TV License is required.

I can't see if this refurb item includes a new bulb. If not you could end up with 1 that's 99% thru it's life. In which case this deal isn't great value.

You need a licence to watch or record TV as it's broadcast, including if you're watching it online,

"You need to be covered by a valid TV Licence if you watch or record TV as it's being broadcast. This includes the use of devices such as a computer, laptop, mobile phone or DVD/video recorder."

Total bargain if you look at what HD projectors cost 3 or 4 years ago. If I recall rightly this was the entry level for HD at £1500 before the HD20 came on the market at £900.

We have run a Optoma HD20 as our main TV for 2 1/2 years now. We think its great, the guy above's right it can look a bit washed out in the bright daylight, but its brighter than you'd think, enough that its fine if you close the curtains. But like most people we do most of our viewing in the evenings which more than makes up for that. We initially left a telly in the living room too, but found we never used it.

We haven't had a bulb go yet, but the color wheel went recently and cost £100. I'd reckon on about £100/year maintenance.

One thing to watch with cheaper projectors, including this one, is they aren't very tolerant of room geometry - you'll want it mounted dead centre of your viewing wall. The limited zoom means the picture can be too large if projected across the whole length of the room, so you might need to ceiling mount (tricky for cabling) to cut down the throw length or project across the width of the room. If you're thinking of installing it properly it can cause a reorganisation of the whole room, although at £350 I guess more casual use is justifiable.

Don't forget this needs an AV amp - unless its for porn obviously, in which case you're better off spending money on a decent set of curtains.
I've got an Infocus in76 and the bulb is still going strong after over 2500 hours. That's over 1000 movies!
Having had a projector (epson something £400 at the time) for the past 3 years have gone through one bulb after the 2.5 year mark (worked out about 10p an hour) i got a generic one off ebay for £70. I would find it hard going back to just a tv no matter how big.

Have a tv too (is on a swing arm bracket to move out the way easily) for general viewing but put on the projector for films, sports and gaming it's unbeatable (works out at about 120" across the diagonal)

Next projector will be a 3d one though

Projectors are awesome to watching or playing anything. Just make sure you have a good sound setup and let the good time roll.

Currently I have an Optima 720, projecting a 130 inch screen, with black out blinds in my room. I also have kick-ass sound.

Bulb is still okay for over 2000 hrs and colour wheel was changed recently for £30 : )
nappiehead

colour wheel was changed recently for £30 : )


Where was that?
Anyone got this projector who can tell me how to operate the zoom? Can't find it for the life of me and it comes minus destructions!!!
