Looks like an old model. Lots in store.

Brilliant color DLP projector is designed for business and education - with long life lamp and excellent price/performance ratio.

The projector employs the carbon meter indicating the reduced amount of CO² emissions in Eco mode. Visually confirm the numerical value indicating the reduction in CO² emissions in comparison with Eco mode off operation.

The quick power off function stops the cooling fan immediately after turning off the power to the projector, which makes it possible to remove the projector quickly. For a rapid shut down, the projector can be turned off without powering off the projector using the direct power off function and a power strip equipped with a switch and breaker.

By using passwords, the projector cannot be used by unauthorized persons. Furthermore, since the main unit has a security chain opening, unauthorized removal of the projector is prevented by inserting the security cable or wire commercially available into the opening.

Get me a new HD projector over 2000 lumen with a 12 month warranty for £150 and I'll buy it straight away :-)
(a lamp alone usually costs £250-300)

GREAT DEAL, just connect via composite or VGA cable and off you go

Like the 3D glasses...

Can anyone confirm if these are available nationally?

1024 x 768 is not a poor res very good spec for the money hot from me

Could be fun with a Wii or a DVD player for the kids. You can get a lot more for a bit more cash.

Are there models available for around £200? Most of those around the £200 mark only seem to have 800x600 resolution (but longer lamp life than this one)

Tool

Any at the Whitton store please?

Hot. My projector is only 800x600, and even that's alright. 1024x768 is pretty decent, especially for this price.

To be honest, people won't use it as much as they think they will, when commenting on here thinking it's a great deal, when they actually get it, unless it's 1080p of course, having owned a low res one like this, then 720p and then 1080p.
The low res felt more like a gimmick and it ended up being sold on eBay, after a few weeks.
The 720p, after 5 months I had pretty much stopped using it, I had a choice between 42" 1080p TV or 60" 720p projector, (as any bigger it was too pixelated) I ended up going back to the TV. The bigger screen novelty wore off and I went back to quality.
However, last August. I got a 1080p Optoma, £400 (and occasionally you can still get them at this price, just a couple weeks ago Amazon had some £395)
I have used mine ever since for 8 months, sold the TV, it stopped getting used. You'll get quality and big screen with the 1080p projector.
I think bulbs are about £100 not £300-400 and they last 4000 hours. I use about 100 hours a month, 3 hours a day on average.
So hopefully one bulb will last me 3 years or so.

So I have to say keep your £150 and use your current TV or monitor, you'll thank me later on and Save up for 1080p.

This is great, a brilliant price, probably less than a replacement bulb!

At £150 you're looking at a 5p an hour cost (plus electricity) if the bulb lasts 3000 hours. Stash a quid away in a tin every time you've watched a film and when you come to upgrade in a few years you'll have £1500 to fund a proper HD projector, screen, surround system and even a popcorn machine

I have a £60 screen from amazon and a £180 s/h optoma pico projector which I watch vhs videos on powered by a HDMI video player I got from a car booter for £2 as the dvd writer on it was bust... It gets used every day and has turned the dining room into the most used room in the house. People are wowwed by the setup- and even though it would get laughed at on most home cinema forums it does the job perfectly, ps3 games are great on it and the £40 s/h sub is quiet enough for the neighbours but loud enough to rattle the kids

The other thing about this projector is in a years time with 500-700 hours on the bulb and a receipt you're gonna get £100 back on the fs/ft if you decide to upgrade... Follow my savings plan and you'd have up to £800 to do it too!

Ive got a similar spec BenQ projector and after 5 years of use (with the Wii, DVD player, Virgin Media, PC and now the Wii-U) it is still going strong! The bulb warning light came on about 2 years ago so I just reset it!!! BUT the cost of a bulb is £150 so I may just see if my local has any of these in stock as it is a bloody good offer.

The LAMP warning light on projectors isn't just a suggestion, it's a warning. The lamps contain mercury, and when the go pop, the cooling fans will blow delicious mercury dust all around your room.
Change your lamp, you cheapskate!

Is this a country wide offer?

Dont think so. Northampton knew nothing about them.

anyone know which stores have them in stock please? - is the Cowley store the one in Uxbridge? I see listed as 121 Cowley road - but Google maps doesnt show the location of the store - how far from Uxbridge is it please?

Still stand by my hot vote 720p is 1280x720 (16:9) so 1024 x 768 (4:3) isn't going to look massively different. My main concern would be contrast ratio 2000:1 not great don't watch any darkly shot films but for the money bargain!
