I am guessing this is not going to beat the 12 minute sell out of last night.
I wonder how many they could sell if they had a larger supply… 2000? 5000?
So when are you guys gonna WOOT some shares?
Awesome deal for a projector though…

Don’t hate the ScreenPlaya – hate the game
$499.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling
Let’s get serious. Who doesn’t, in his or her heart of hearts, covet a home theater projector? Show us the movie buff who doesn’t crave bigger, better thrills. Introduce us to the kids who wouldn’t enjoy an impromptu drive-in show on the garage door. We’d like to meet the sports fan who wouldn’t weep with joy to watch the Final Four on a 200” screen. And verily, breathes there a gamer alive who doesn’t yearn for the undead in Doom III to come to vivid life in bigger-than-life size?
Yes, when it comes to our collective widescreen home-theater jones, we are all craven, covetous sinners. And Woot! is here to indulge your weakness with the premium InFocus ScreenPlay 4800 digital light projector at a price so low you’ll want an extra one for the bathroom.
You get what you pay for, you say? In this case, you get more. You don’t need us to tell you that InFocus is the premier manufacturer of home theater components, supplying some 49% of the home market. DLP technology makes home projector images sharper, brighter and more lifelike than ever before, and nobody does it like InFocus. You probably know that the 4800 is the home theater version of their highly popular X1 business projector, but with true home video quality. Indeed, at 2000:1, it boasts the best video contrast in its class. And while it’s not quite up to the dazzling standard of the ScreenPlay 4805, it’s as close as you can get at a fraction of the price.
So go ahead and browse the specs below. Google up some reviews. Check eBay for prices. Do all the little things you Wooters do – but do them in a hurry or some other chump will get his hands on your ScreenPlay 4800.

Damn, I just bought this projector about a month or so ago for about double the price. I love it…it is low end, but really does the job. I watch a movie or 2 a night and they look awesome. Better than the theater because you can pause.
Nice! I bought 3! Page 1 too!
These projectors are so GREAT. I saw Miracle on one, and it is a whole new ballgame. But where does this one rank in quality of pic?
Shoot. Did I say BALL game?
Did you notice in paragraph it says contrast of 2000:1
But in item description it says 1000:1?
Great Item… Just wished it was at least 1024x768 and was native 16.9.
But at $499.99 I would almost buy one because of the deal!
