Re: looking to buy a projector

my stepdad owned a projector for gaming

it was only good for movies or shows, massive eyestrain when playing games (and even movies)

and without the perfect lighting it gets annoying

6/10 would not reccomend

Re: looking to buy a projector

if you're on limited money i don't think your best option is buying a projector. it might be cool for a while, but projectors actually have an upkeep to them. the bulbs on them only get dimmer and have to be replaced eventually, bulbs usually costing up to 100's of dollars.


Edited Wed, 27 Aug 2014 02:59:05:

also because of the bulb issue you pretty much have to always buy brand new projectors unless you want to get dicked.

Re: looking to buy a projector

lol by financial aid i mean scholarship money
the maintenance is the only setback i can think of tbh

http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-PJD5533 … s=PJD5533w

this one i was looking at here doesnt use a filter and somehow thats supposed to be better...?
anyway the bulb on it is good for 6000 hours which is about 100 days short of a year, im not sure ive even broken 48 hours on my TV
supports 3d, res is pretty high for a projector, and the lumen count on it is supposed to allow for pretty flexible usage

basically, i dont use my tv a lot, so im not too worried about the bulb's lifespan, im kind of just expecting 6000 hours to be a pretty good amount relative to how often i'd use it. then again, the whole reason i want a projector over a tv is because i can make the picture massive, if i liked it enough to use my computer on it, that 6000 hours might not be a whole lot

Re: looking to buy a projector

do you think the extra care involved is worth it?
how big can you get the projection to be before the picture starts looking shitty?

Re: looking to buy a projector

a good question is what do you actually plan to do with this projector

Re: looking to buy a projector
