Recommended Posts

Take a look at this:

My mate just bought one and it's awesome!! Even a year ago you would have had to pay £2000 for something of this quality. Don't let the price fool you - it's fantastic.

 

We set it up last night and ended up playing Halo on the Xbox until 4am......

 

There is no optical zoom though so you need to sit it on a coffee table in front of you and move the table forward or backwards to adjust the projection size. The great thing with this projector is that you can't hear the fan. Projectors usually sound a bit like hair dryers. He has a 5ft wide screen to view on with a Sony surround system. :D

Even cheaper here and here.

 

Only 700 ansi Lumens, so not the brightest of projectors - but sure seems cheap enough.

 

I would say you probably would have paid around £6-800 for something like this a year ago.

 

I do like the fact it is native 16:9 output.

To be honest 700 lumens is standard for home cinema kit (even for £4000 units). Any brighter and you lose the blacks.

 

I have a Sanyo Z3 which is about £1100. The image quality is stunning but not that much better.

 

This Tosh even has DCDi which is amazing for the money. You can't even get a decent telly for 300 quid, let alone a five or 6 foot wide one.

 

Difinitely recommended.

Hi

I love to play games and spend most of my free time in gaming studios. Now I have plan to convert my room into gaming studio / Home Theater to enjoy amazing entertainment experience at home. The only problem I am facing is I did not know which gaming/Movie projector I should choose. Please do suggest me some with high performance and HD display that did not disappoint me.

Thanks
