InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 DLP Projector


Welcome to the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 DLP Projector topic page for Thursday, June 30th. Please post your questions, experiences, or pricing comments here.


Wahooo!! First post… i hope that when u say “one more chance” that it will be the last time you are selling these things…

cmon!!! We have waited soo long for our BOC’s!


Ugh, again? FYI, this is not HDTV (though HDTV is mentioned several times in the description), it is EDTV (Enhanced Definition, which means the screen is wider than Standard Definition). It may accept HDTV signals, but it reduces the resolution to that of normal, non-HD television. EDTV is marginal at 42", at big projection sizes it is poor.

Plus this comes with a 90 day warranty. The color wheel is a mechanical part that wears out. Why do you think they have so may refurbs? Odds are you will be paying for service on this projector within the next two years.

I’m not saying it’s an awful deal, but projector prices are falling through the floor right now, and you can get 1024x768 projectors with full warranties for not much more.


ooops double post

YES YES!!! READ flyguyjm04’s post!!!



Hi Dad!!! I love u!


WOOTAGE™ - I think this should be the new scale of measuring a WOOT, kind of like a light bulb (wattage). From now on, WOOTS are going to be rated this way :wink: Like, hey the BOC is a 100 WOOTAGE, whilst the AB-TILT is about a 5 WOOTAGE. (this ought to bring some wrath from the ab-tilt diehards, you know who you are :wink: )

What do you think tonights WOOT rates on the WOOTAGE scale?

I rate this a 80 WOOTAGE as it is at least $250 more on froogle… most places are $400-$500 more! … [b]Great Deals, coupon codes and freebies. [b]

Dude. Dude. Dude. We’ve gone out of our way to bend over backwards to move heaven and Earth just so you can get with the InFocus program. It’s never been so easy or affordable to enjoy life-size, crystal-clear, 16:9, 750-lumen home theater action – and with the imminent collapse of our oil-based economy, it may never be this easy again. (Or so this one guy at the bus stop outside Taco Bell told us.)

And yet there you sit, squinting through the haze of your cruddy little 13” black and white TV, the one manufactured in the former Yugoslavia under the dubious brand name “Sonry.” That sad little excuse for a screen is so tiny, the San Francisco Giants look like dwarves and Grand Theft Auto is just a misdemeanor.

It’s so sad, so unnecessary. And after all the trouble we’ve gone to, it’s tantamount to a slap in the face. But our bottomless well of Wootarian kindness compels us to give you one more chance to make things right before we cross your name from our Hanukah card list. Here it is: the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805. All the features you crave, all the convenience you want, all the savings you need. Isn’t our friendship worth it?
