Lets be honest it more like 99.99% it will be 143X. I very much doubt anyone will get this, but you have to be in it to win it. Lets see what Amazon does.

Can anyone explain why you'd want to pay £60 when this Apple lookalike product (but with lanyard) is available for £16? 4.5 stars average in 200 reviews: Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, GEJIN Bluetooth 4.1 Waterproof Sports Earphones, Noise Cancelling Earbuds by GEJIN Link: http://amzn.eu/d/0qaQx3X

RufusA

Good sounding solid headphones and unlike a lot of cheaper Chinese ones that lie actually supports APT-X. However you do need Comply tips and ear hooks to stand any chance of them staying in your ears. Also Bluetooth struggles sometimes from interference and they are quite sensitive to moisture! Read the Amazon reviews before purchase, I don't regret mine but paid less than £40 - used like new Amazon Warehouse and went through three pairs before I found a good one! IMHO too many flaws to spend £60 on.

i considered this vs my beng 720, both great machines, benq is slightly better on full dark rooms especially watching movies, while the optoma has better result on dimmed light rooms for everday usage.. but if you have specific distance for specific screen size requirment like me, you need to find out distance values, that is why i had to choose benq instead of this, if i had 30cm more or less distance value (i dont remember right now) i could buy this. by distance i mean: i had to fix the projector inside a bookshelf on one side of the room, and i ahd to have the screen on the other side of the room's wall and needed min. 120inch screen size, so benq gave me 120inch screen from exactly on 430cm. distance, while optoma was either 30cm further or closer.

with the ViewSonic PX747 4K at under a grand already, we're not *that* far off. i'd say within the next couple of years. as i said, till then though, i'm perfectly happy with my 110" 1080p setup. and yes, i realise it isnt "true" 4k, but its a decent enough start

psycho_terror

not gonna say this isn't possible, nor that a good warranty isn't worth getting, but in 15 years of running DLP projectors i've never seen a colour wheel go. you will 100% consume bulbs though, and the 6 year warranty will not cover 6 years of bulbs (though this has a 1 year manufacturers guarantee). had to replace a fan in an Optoma unit once... must admit, while this projector is fine for what it is, prices were better than this 5 years ago.

sheffield788

They definitely price match only when the other seller sells with the same terms and conditions as Richer Sounds. Got my bluray player from them and because theirs was an extra year warranty, they did not honour the price match (£20 difference). But they gave me £10 discount as I was a 'member'. I think is easy to claim you do price match when nobody gives the same warranty, therefore not entitled.

Toon_army

Even if they don't price match you'll get £10 off being a VIP simply by signing up your email address. So for an extra £90 a 6 year warranty is a no brainer? My HD26 is going in for a colour wheel fix when I can be bothered to drop it off

darynq

I read somewhere this week that someone was told at a Richer that they will now only price match if the other one also has 6 year warranty. Which of course no one else offers and is conveniently more than JLs 5 years. Optoma say they guarantee the colour will not degrade on these for 5 years so I wonder if that will cover the wheel anyway on top of the 2 year warranty

darynq

Very has these for £779 but you get £100 off if you use 9 months BNPL which may suit some. I just had delivered today the 1080e for £480 with a Very 20% code they sent for my birthday and sourced a used Darbee box for 50 quid.

Love my 141x - watching the football was fantastic, amazing how many of the neighbours just happened to pop round during the national anthems to watch!

Cunningstunt1

I have the 141x easily throws a 120 inch picture. 3d is very good too if you have it on sky q. You can use the 3.5 mm audio out to a speaker (Bose colour in my case) or HDMI to a surround sound system. Superb value if you have the space on a wall. If you want a really awesome picture, Google black widow paint!

I personally think 3D is rubbish, even those at the cinema on the huge screens

baconribs

just playing. New to projectors. It arrived today. No 4k content to play yet. This is about 110inch from 3.5m away. Zero light control. Does have a 3d button on the remote but states "not support" in menu 3d is not selectable. Not sure if you have to put a 3d disc in to activate or if they just saved maufacturing costs by disabling but not removed button? Doubt i will use 3d myself. Have got a smile on my face from the size of the screen. Looking forward to it getting dark but still good with curtains open and room full of light.

Nut82uk

I don't think you're going to go far in life pal.

nickfezz

I’m the same. I have no visible wires in my setup. They are either chased into the wall or very well hidden. I use an AV receiver with 6 hdmi in and 2 out. One of the outs goes straight to main TV with the second selectable out going to the projector when I want to use it. My Xbox, PS4, Switch, Sky, Amazon all connect into the receiver and output to either the TV or projector as I wish. It’s just a case of getting the projector out of its little White cupboard and connecting 1 HDMI lead.

twisted89

Not confused at all, you asked about a car and a set of speakers, I told you you're in the wrong place. I don't have a bigger picture? I guess it all depends what sized picture we're comparing to. Need to give me some measurements.

You’re mightily confused. You’re just not seeing the bigger picture (because you have not got one of these I guess).

Just an update. The staff sold it to a another customer despite originally holding a reservation.

jasee

All you needed to do was to post the link I posted in your original post, IMO

modelman

I read the very review before purchasing my projector and rainbows are mentioned as an issue for some people. So like myself who does see the rainbows on fast moving scenes it would be a reason for returning. So going back to my unhelpful comment a returned item may be a faulty / refurbished unit, a shop demo, or a customer return due to unacceptable visual effects. Is that more helpful ?

sgs222

It's just 12m warranty, as expected... One problem I have with this unit is the noise level. Too loud even for this price. On the eco mode with dynamic black switched off its almost the same as in full mode only slightly lower pitched noise. I'm starting to think I've got a faulty projector... (annoyed)

sgs222

I thought that, although the one I've reserved is apparently all new with all stickers and packaging intact. Will check if they offer extended warranty, but it is still being sold as an open box clearance item.

MrBrightside1987

Brilliant thanks, will get the low profile stuff so that the bits above the carpet aren't as noticeable. I'm pretty sure I've got all HDMI 2.0 cables anyway, but will just double check and order as necessary for the PS4 Pro and Nvidia Shield. Thanks for all the help and time taken to answer all my questions btw. As you can tell I didn't have a clue what I was doing when I decided to buy the projector but thanks to your advice the only thing I have left to do is do up is connect the wires up. Much obliged (worldcup)

gunmasterg9

No need to go anything special just get either something like this which kinda low profile flat cable flat Cable 50 metres or speaker cable round. Some people will say that the more you spend on the the cable the better sound but as long as the cable is decent and not cheap really thin stuff then it would be fine. I thank I have similar cable to the latter. At the end of the day it’s about enjoying what you are watching and the system you will have in place will be really good. Movie night / football World Cup will never be the same. Oh did you say you have the Nvidia Shield too? Have you got a 4K TV, just make sure you have 4K hdr compatible HDMI cables going from the shield to amp and then from amp to TV. You don’t have to worry about the HDMI cable to projector as that will display in 1080p so doesn’t have to be a special advance cable.

Well played! Normally she wouldn't mind as much but we've just bought a house and need to get that sorted. Anyway, do I need to buy any particular cables to connect the speakers to the receiver?

J88NYr

Its actually kind of nice in the morning, I dont bother blocking any light out, pop it on, and its just there in the background. Its not like you need incredible blacks when the news is on in the background. Honestly, the only thing I would consider replacing a projector with is an OLED TV, but to even get to a size worth considering, you could easily buy a good 4k projector and a ALR screen, and there theres no need for the OLED TV. The only place a TV really makes sense to me now, is in the bedroom.

BetaRomeo

Agreed. A couple of years ago, while watching Jurassic World on our 1080P 42" TV, my wife made an offhand comment about how a scene must have looked very good on a big-screen, which set cogs whirring in my brain. A couple of months of intense research and measuring later, I'd managed to set up a full 1080P projector on a hand-made stand, projecting onto a 90" screen which rolled up and down in front of our TV, all for about £400 altogether. Having the screen roll up and down so we could just use our TV for everyday stuff seemed essential. Indeed, when my wife came home to find a home cinema setup (and her being even more thrifty than me!), her first question was what if she just wants to watch TV? (Her initial reaction was clearly trepidation over what clearly appeared to be an expensive, unnecessary spend.) So I showed her how easy it was to roll the screen up and down. We rolled the screen up and down a couple of times in the first week, in November 2015. Then the TV didn't go on again for years - we finally moved it out from behind our screen last month! :D Despite the cheap price, our projector is barely audible in Eco mode - certainly quieter than any of my consoles. Movies look good on the big screen (of course!). But TV programs are where the difference is most noticeable. Designed for the small screen, close shots of heads produce giants in our home. Enormous Ian Hislops jab their pens at political points in a manner I couldn't have imagined when I used to watch HIGNFY on my little 14" in my parents' home! My wife's Korean dramas feel almost like an invasion. And games like The Last of Us really do live up to the promise of the "cinematic" label. But the most incredible difference, the starkest and clearest demonstration of why the big screen is so much better, comes from David Attenborough documentaries (and similar). Even at 'only' native 1080P, the difference is awesome (in the traditional, non-American sense). It still amazes us over 30 months after installation. My wife still sometimes remarks on the impressiveness of the picture. I didn't go into this purchase thinking I'd become some sort of projector-worshiper, but with the caveat that one must have the right kind of living room setup (size, shape, light levels/direction/control) and do the hours of research needed to get the most appropriate projector, I would take this 90" screen over a tiny little 60" screen, even 4K, any day. And I'm already following 4K options like this one, ready for an upgrade when it's appropriate for us (i.e. I get upgrade-fever!). (embarrassed)

Thanks for the info, I'll check it out.

izombie

The wall I'm projecting onto is a mix called "black widow", if you Google it you'll find the paint codes and additive details. The rest of the room is a chocolate brown colour. For the wall you are projecting on Valspar do a great range of "HD paints", available to mix at B&Q when you give a paint code to them, the colour turns out to be a darkish grey, there are four shades of the grey, look on avforums for more details. It all depends on the projector you buy and how bright the projected image is. Make sure the rest of the room is painted in a matt finish otherwise light will bounce off every wall. All of this was trial and error for me, I've repainted the projector wall at least five times and I think I'm finally happy ish with the result. Hope this helps.

NostromoXP

Hi izombie, I'm currently trying to plan the colour scheme for my cinema room and I was wondering what colour you have your walls. I know this sounds like a really weird stalker question but I'm looking for insperation (cheeky)

izombie

I've just returned this model as it has an inherent issue. The picture quality is great and it's bright enough to use with some ambient light but there's a permanent border of light around the projected image, for me it was too distracting. If I didn't have a purpose built 100 inch screen and dark walls it wouldn't have been as much of an issue but unfortunately it had to go back. For those of you not bothered about this it wouldn't be a deal breaker. My advise would be to read plenty of reviews and do your homework first, I ended up with the Viewsonic Pro7827hd and it's packed full of features, even though it has a lower lumen count I find it's an excellent all round 1080p projector. Hope this information helps someone as I'm not commenting to put people off the HD143x, it just may be an issue for some.

Costco had the Optoma HD240Wi Full HD 3D Projector at  £ 429.99  last autumn which I bought. It is used in a summer house at a projection distance of about 4metres and looks identical to this model. My first projector and I have been astonished at the quality of the picture, even in 3D, on a Duronic screen. Better as it goes dark of course. Fortunately none of us has seen any rainbow effect.

Oh that. Imagine you overlaid 4 1080p pictures over each other. The first picture is centred, the second is 1/2 a pixel to the side, the second is 1/2 a pixel to the side and 1/2 a pixel down, the final one is 1/2 a pixel down. Suddenly you've created a 4k image from a bunch of lower resolution ones... sort of. The more shifts you do the worse the image compared to a true 4k output but if this model is one of the ones with a ~2.5k DMD so only needs one shift then that's good enough.

fubar888

I’d be happy with either 4K standard, both being a step up from my ageing 1080p epson...just there was a question why this was not true 4K. I thought this might be why as couldn’t see another reason. @tempt mentioned it’s a 2k panel with some cleverness to achieve the 4K resolution - can’t say I understand what this is though?

CampGareth

Projection in a cinema is a whole different world to home cinema which is reflected in the price tag (a cinema projector is in the same ballpark as a cheap house). I don't have an issue with a consumer device following consumer standards, 3840x2160 will do.

Daytrader

Yeh 3840x2160 is the best, thats why bluray uhd 4k spec and tv broadcasts went for it, so this projector is 4k in my eyes.

Well all commercial 4k tvs are 3840x2160, and thats a great thing, as 4096x2160 resolution gives slight overscan/and extra stretch, so i prefer the consumer 3840x2160.

and ice cream tastes like dog poo if you put dog poo on it. what's your point? a 4k display is sharper than a 1080p display, if you play 4k content on it. i play 4K content on my 4K display - IDC if you want to use yours to watch DVDs, the display is still capable of providing better image quality. look, i commented here because someone said you wouldn't tell the difference between 1080p and 4K in a normal room. if you're trying to prove that to me, don't bother, because you're wrong. if you're trying to explain what bitrate is, don't bother, because i know, and it's nothing to do with my original comment.

"A quantifiable metric to back it up" - that would be bitrate. "4K is sharper" - Nope, not if its 480, 720P or 1080P up scaled its not, Just because something is "4K" doesn't mean squat. Native 4K is better than 1080P obviously as you refer to, but even then, if the bitrate is low then all that goes out the window. Think Netflix 4K v UltraHD Blu-ray 4k. Still 4K, but the difference in quality is vast. 4K is nothing but a marketing term without bitrate.

You have missed my point. 1080p streams are akin to dvd in quality. Whereas 4k streams are akin to blu Ray quality albeit a 1080p blu ray not a 4k one. So if you have a 1080p screen/projector it streams the 1080p source which is dvd quality. If you have a 4k screen/projector it streams the 4k stream which is akin to a 1080p blu Ray. So the reason why there is a big jump in quality going from 1080p to 4k is that the quality of the stream is a lot better rather than the actual resolution of the screen. A fair test would be using 1080p blu Ray on a 1080p screen vs 4k blu Ray on a 4k screen. However 99% of people don't buy blu rays. They stream.

so watching video footage of 4k at about a quarter size (ie 1080p), probably on a 15 inch 1080p laptop screen is what makes you think 4K at 100+ inches looks the same as 1080p? thanks for the "FYI" but you haven't exactly blown my mind.

not sure what you're saying here, it's actually lot to do with the resolution. "quality" doesn't actually mean anything without a quantifiable metric to back it up. for example, 4K is sharper, and has more colour information because it has 4x the number of pixels as a 1080 image (ie a higher resolution). the "source" for most 4k content these days is digital film, which is recorded at 4K (ie sampled by an image sensor with 8 million+ pixels, compared to 2 million at 1080). for older content sampled from actual film stock, the "source" would be the same for a 1080 or 4K transfer depending on the sampled resolution. if your display can't render the same number of pixels as the media, you aren't getting the benefit of a higher quality source because you aren't seeing all of the captured information. 4K is objectively better than 1080, and the bigger the image, the easier it is to see the difference.

I gave this projector and a Optoma 1080p, 4K looks convincing, I don’t care if it’s real or not... it looks so much better than my Optoma 1080. Only downside is sd sucks on it... I have to use my 1080 for that. Also I project onto grey, it gives better blacks....
