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

Amazon price £129. I usually do not post deals on Chinese projectors, but I came across this projector before. A friend has it and it looks good to me for this price. I do not trust much the no name Chinese projectors but this is one of the very few Chinese brands I like. They do decent projectors, reasonable value for the money and they do not exagerate with the specs. Ignore the other projectors advertised at 5000 lumens, they are misleading, a projector at that brightness will never cost so little.

This will not replace your TV but it is fine in a dark room or for kids room. Don't forget TCB and as coming from China, extra charges may occur, however I have never paid extra charges for items coming from Gearbest and Ali Express.

£3.50 cheaper from another seller, but barred here and I personally prefer Gearbest.

The problem with all chinese projectors is that you cannot trust the claimed specs and image figures. So you are really not sure of what you are getting for your money.

Absolutely agree, this is why I usually do not post deals here for projectors from China. I can't believe people fall for 7000 lumens projectors at £50.
However, I came across 2 Vivibright projectors and both were good. In fact, before getting my projector, I did lots of research and ruled out all the Chinese 'brands' apart from Vivibright. Eventually got a used LG instead

I once fell for the con, buying a projector from an ebay seller claiming 7000 lumens. Believe me the packaging had it written *7000 Lumens* in bold. Set it up and the picture quality I got was next to a dodgy black and white CRT telly. I also got myself a used Optoma. Better safe with known brands even if used

I did the same, Crenova 3000 lumens vs LG 1000 lumens, used. LG miles brighter.
I only posted this deal as Vivibright is the only Chinese brand I trust (maybe trust is a bit of a strong word).
Your comment is pretty much the same as my comments when others post deals on Chinese projectors. This is not a projector to blow your mind and does not claim this, it is only an acceptable one for the price IMO. It also does not claim it comes half of the price or crazy discounts, it is only about 10% off their normal price, ignore Amazon price.

I've got an AUN native 720p projector, albeit no way a daylight projector, but amazing value for money for night time movies..
This projector is 800x480, not 1080p. I purchased a dbpower projector for £33 with similar spec a couple of years ago. Perfectly fine to project a 50inch screen in a dark room but bigger size is pixelated and dark scenes are impossible to see in daytime without blackout curtains

£62.99 seems incredibly expensive

Im not saying the dbpower can't go to 120inch plus. But it just looks pixelated after 50/60 inches

I replaced mine with a 720p projector and it's much better for bigger size projection
I purchased an Elphas Q9 Projector recently. I'm very happy with it. It shows text pin sharp.

Some Chinese projectors are OK depending what you want them for, but there is no way yours has 6000 lumens. A 6000 lumens costs close to £1,000.
I've got a Chinese one too, advertised at 3000 lumens. Never owned a projector before and I felt the value and quality was OK. It's only when I've got a used LG, 1000 lumens, I've realised the ones from China have made up specs, my LG is probably 10 times brighter.
The one I've posted has some exaggerated specs, but it is closer to reality. Your Elephas seems to be one of their relatively decent models, probably their top specs model, but there is no way it has 6000 lumens.

This is my concern with the Chinese brands....if your LG is 1000 lumens and 10x brighter than a Chinese 3000 lumen projector, it means the Chinese projectors are probably circa 100 ~ 200 lumens or below.
The new pico led projectors from the big brands claim similar specs of between 100 ~ 200 lumens which I think are accurate.

You're absolutely right!! This is why I dont get when people buy 7000 lumens projectors from China.

My Crenova is rubbish. Obviously was good, until I've got a second hand LG and realised how rubbish was the Crenova and the specs were all made up. I honestly thought it was a good one, but this is because I never had a projector before to compare it with. The one in the link you shared shoes 4000. There is no way that one is 4000, the price should be 3-4 times higher. I've posted this deal as the specs they claim are exaggerated less than on other projectors.

Just looked on ebay and there are quite a few around the £50/£60 mark claiming 10000 lumen, 4K, 1080P, 3D and all bells and whistles. Beggars belief and ludicrous!

thats because you most likely purchased acheap 640 by 480 crenova, i have a 1280 by 720 p crenova, the brightness on mine is fine for a dark room. i dont know why people go on about the lumens and how bad cheap chinese projectors are when they have not tried one.

i dont care what the lumens is on my crenova its fine for a dark room, obviously if you get a lower end crenova they will not fit as bright a bulb in it, a 640 by 480 crenova is for kids only

they say 1080p because they mean they will accept a 1080 p signal and down convert it to whatever the native resolution is. you need to check the native resolution, if its 1280 by 720 then you are good to go.

My Crenova is ok in a dark room too. But it is nowhere as bright as my LG which can only be used in a dark room only too. The picture on Crenova is not as clear as on the LG. It is OK for kids, not bad. I've got it as a present, so can't tell how expensive was, but it is clear it is a cheap model, the native resolution is only 800x480.
What I wanted to say is the specs claimed are nowhere near the reality. The LG specs are much lower, but it is clear it beats the Crenova on any aspect. However, the LG was £400 new, so off course it should be better. My point is Crenova claims unrealistic specs. It also had 4.5 stars on reviews on Amazon, about 400 reviews. It is not about the projector, it is about honesty here. I use it for the kids room and it is fine.

Yes, but a 10,000 lumens projector will never cost £50. Even this one I've posted claims 1800 ansi and in reality is just over 200 lumens.

All Chinese projectors are crap, their resolution is crap, their optics are crap (the lenses are crap quality and make for a less crisp image)
I bought one with the idea of replacing my 12 year old Epson one that's still on the same bulb purely because it's fan is noisy. As soon as I turned on the Chinese one I regretted it instantly. Image quality is crap, dark, never in focus the whole image. Instantly sent it back. To summarise, buy a used old brand named one, Epson, benq etc. I got one for 50 quid delivered and its mint, just use a hdmi to vga converter
All of these Chinese projectors are much of a muchness. I bought this one from amazon in October, just to do window decorations for Halloween and Christmas. It included a soft case as well, for just £56. I would be very surprised if there is very much between the 2.
