Best bargain 3D projector available,
This review is from: (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I just got my projector and I am very impressed. It plugged directly into the PS3 and i was playing Call of duty black ops in 3d (I bought the glasses seperately). The 2d picture for watching blu rays and DVDs is also excellent. My 11 year old son was particularly impressed and i have earned some cool points.
I had looked at a number of options for my move to 3D gaming. TV's where just too small to be immersive. The other projector options all had limitations. They either lacked the necessary HDMI imputs (my AV receiver just pre dates 3d support becoming standard) or involved multiple components and therefore cost.
The short throw nature of this projector meant I could get alot larger screen in the attic room with 3 sloping walls than i would have been otherwise been able to accomplish. It also as suggested on the market blurb means i can add a PS3 Move or Xbox Kinnect to the kids xmass list if they want one.
There is one important factor you need to consider is that it lacks zoom so you screen size depends on where you place the projector relative to viewing screen. I mounted it on the roof with seperately purchased projector mount about 5 ft from my one flat wall and have a 98 inch screen. The projector is relatively light so there where no weight concerns.
I am very happy with my purchase. The picture is bright and viewable even in day light. The fan noise is easily drown out by the game and movie noise and I have never noticed it as intrusive. Note when you switch the projectore off the fan goes into overdrive for about 5 seconds. The internal speakers are adequate and sound ok.
I did not buy from amazon as they did not sell this projector when i decided to buy. The best price given was the same as the deal I got elsewhere.
