This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Okay - the normal price for this budget projector is £189.99
Black Friday Price is £104.49 BUT there is also a £10 voucher available on the Amazon Page when ordering which brings price down to £94.49.
It is NATIVE 1080p - most projectors at this price point are 1080p "compatible - basically they downscale the image to 720p or even less - but not this one.
Built in media player - YOUTUBE reviews seem very good even at the original price.
Just don't expect OPTOMA quality - it's a quarter of the price - and you can always send back if it's rubbish.

Apparently it sounds like Stansted Airport (runway - end of)

Otherwise pretty decent✊
This is a deal. The best price I've found for a native 720p is £65 ish. Heat
Just missing a zoom, otherwise I’d be in!
Heated, truly outstanding price for a full hd projector. I own this model. While the brightness could be better it has a good clear picture. Watch it in a completely dark room and it should be fine.

Total no brainer IMHO, this is less than a 720p projector normally costs...

Agreed - but at this price I think it'd worth a punt :-)

Wow - how long have you had it ?
I have just returned a Vankyo 1080p projector as media player wouldn't work and it kept dropping back to menu system whilst watching something - that was £150 - so I did have my doubts about this - but at this price thought I would take a chance.

A bit too good to be true IMO.
I bought this yesterday for £100, I turned it on, played a couple of 1080p trailers on it, put it back in the box and returned it.

1) it’s quite bright, but not great
2) it’s loud, not terrible, but pretty bad
3) it’s bloody massive
4) it looks and feels cheap
5) it’s quite sharp but the keystoning is an absolute joke. It just ruins the sharpness. Laughable.
6) mins had a scratch across it which was a good reason to send back (including the other 5)

Maybe worth £60 Max. IMHO. Gave up trying to buy cheap projectors (this is my second go) so just bought a nebula Mars pro 2 which is currently discounted on Amazon.

About 4 months do perhaps not enough to say for certain on reliability but buying from Amazon, guarantees you are fine if anything goes wrong anyway.

To be fair, I haven't explored it's advanced features, I literally just pipe a source through the first HDMI input as I wouldn't expect the media player or any smart apps to be very good, much like they aren't on cheaper TVs. But provided you have a source to use e.g. a fire TV stick, games console etc, I'm sure you'd be fine...

You certainly seem to have had a bad one !

The youtube reviews look so positive - as well as the amazon reviews.

Hope I fare better with mine !

I want mine mainly for digital decorations as opposed to movie/tv watching - so let's see how it performs.

Looks are subjective but I actually like how it looks, the white is quite novel in a projector, kind of reminds me of a taller Xbox one s. As to size you must be used to mini projectors as it's about standard for normal ones, you can definitely get bigger, dlp ones in particular often are.

Somewhat noisy and keystone was a nuisance to set up at first but provided it doesn't drift it's only a one time job.

I think you have to accept compromise at this price point and unless you want to spend literally hundreds more no one projector will do everything perfectly, though some are pretty close...

Exactly like my experience. I've reviewed it on Amazon it was much too noisy and terrible keystone. Had it for about 3 days before it went back.
I saved up my pennies and went for a Viewsonic PX706hd short throw which is amazing.

That's my thoughts for these kinds of projectors. 100s of fake reviews, half the screen isn't even 1080p because of keystoning, and can only be watched in a completely dark room.
I like that the new "Deal Price" is £40 more
Just received mine.......here are my thoughts.
Yes it is noisy - but using an amp or speakers eliminates this.

Media player works fine with everything I have tried today.

By far the BIGGEST SURPRISE is that it is actually 4000 Lumens (not lux) - I measured it with Light Meter App - wowza - it blows the VANKYO 6000 out of the water - the picture is more than legible even with the lights on.

Just amazing value for £94 - much more so than the VANKYO which is £200 or £150 WITH CURRENT DISCOUNT COUPON.

Native 1080p at this price is absolutely amazing - I got mine for digital window decorations - but I have tried an xbox one x through it earlier and it's awesome - and I do own a few OPTOMAS to compare it to.
