I thought £440.40 was a good enough price for this HD Projector, but by using code 3COMP I managed to get a further 3% off bringing it down to £427.19 delivered. Same projector on Amazon and Play is £529.99 (although you do get a free screen with the one on Play, not everyone needs a screen or needs to spend that much of the difference on one).

Huge screen, with high quality HD Ready Projector for a Fantastic image quality providing life-size movie, sports or gaming characters that look so real you could touch them. DLP Display Technology - For great viewing.

1280 x 720 pixels resolution - High quality
3000:1 Contrast Ratio - True, vivid colours
1300 Ansi Lumens - Ultra Brightness
1.2 Optical Zoom Lens - Fixed/Zoom

Be kind! Second ever deal from myself!!

1300 lumens is not very good, not really what anyone would call ultra brightness at all. But for the price not bad.

Check out the reviews on this model, for the price it is very highly thought of and rated... Never seen any negative comments about it's brightness before. Obviously when using a projector you need a dark room, with some ambient light this still will be fine. My previous projector (Infocus IN1) was only 500 Lumens, but still was bright with blinds closed, so this should be a major improvement once I get it...

Friend of mine used to buy and sell projectors; said that you get far more bang for buck spending a few quid on darkening your room as opposed to paying for a higher Lumens rating. If you know or think differently, please feel free to challenge this assertion.

Anyway great price.

Some blurb on my projector, which as you can see has a much lower ANSI rating and still does the job - in fact I use economy mode so the brightness is reduced to what I could have it at and it still delivers.

The MT200 is rated at 700 ANSI lumens; by our measurements it is capable of outputting about 580 ANSI lumens maximum, so there is not a large gap between theoretical and measured output. Optimized for home theater (in Theater mode with the lamp set to low) lumen output was about 330 ANSI – which, in a light-controlled viewing environment is plenty adequate.

Have this projector and everyone who has seen it loves it.

Viewing movies on a 92" screen is fantastic, so highly recommend this projector.

Another advantage of this projector is that the replacement bulbs are not too expensive, so after 2000 hours, it will only cause about £120 to replace bulb.

Believe me it's well worth it.......... just ask the wife, she actually thought it was a good gadget, for a change

Fantastic bargain for a 720P projector, hot deal, especially as full-HD 1080P projectors are still very expensive.

Just a word of caution though, some people are prone to 'rainbow effect' (both my wife and I are) which means that watching a DLP projector can be an unpleasant experience. I recommend trying out before parting with hard earned cash !

Well I purchased it, and just over 2 weeks after being delivered it's packed up on me, shows lamp failure! Love the PJ, but not too happy now obviously... will be on to dixons in the morning to get it swapped.
