What the heck is that thing on the screen?!


#4

Love the picture of Fizzgig from “The Dark Crystal”. Too bad I can’t afford this, would be nice.


#5

why, it’s the delightful Ffizzgigg ffrom the Dark Crystal. But still not charming enough to make me pony up that kind of cabbage. I don’t even have a 76" wall available.

How well would this show during the day, with normal natural light in the room?

Prices in froogle are from slightly over a thousand( 12oo and up to be exact ) , and don’t even include a silver screen. Nice woot, if you have the money. Good replacement for lamp projectors.


#9

you need to go by the dark crystal right away if that was not instantly recognizable. I owuld have bought this immediatley if my credit wasnt spread across 3 cards making it impossible to woot with.

The projector looks great, to expensive for me though

I just wanted to say I enjoyed the podcast, and it made me want the projector even more

haha great stuff


#11

The 1100 lumens is middle of the road, but very nice for night-time viewing. Plan on blacking out your windows if you want to watch during the day. Still better than the $800 I paid for a similar proj 2 years ago, and I didn’t get a screen.
I was wondering what the muppets were doing for money these days - now I know…


#12

Excellant projector that I just bought 3 weeks ago. Too bad I paid $900, and w/o screen. This is a very good deal (not sure about refurbished quality though).


#13

OK, from a true naif…I’ve always wondered…Just exactly what do these things project??? Do you load it with a DVD? Does it project from your cable? What? What? What?


#14

Who has one of these? I’m in the market for one . Is it something You would be happy
with for the near future? (three to five years ). And do the bulbs hold up?
And does it take a blacked out room to enjoy it?
Thanks in advance for any help and
opinions.

If I wasn’t so dead set on buying the Sanyo PLV-Z4 I’d be all over this…
After I do some more research, I may still bite…
I hope someone posts on this that actually owns one…

YAY DARK CRYSTAL!

oh and woot, we already have a projector aimed at the 7’ gooped screen painted on the wall!

Cheers.


#18

I know, right. I thought the very same thing.


#19

Had heard good things about this one already, and with the screen for this price… I couldn’t say no.

I bought one fom Infocus directly (3 wks ago) that cost me $900, afte the mail-in-rebate. I am using it in a dark room, but I have read reviews that it’s bright enough for a room with slight ambient lighting too. It’s got a proprietry M1 port, for which you can buy an adaptor M1-DVI or M1-HDMI for $49, and hook-up any HDTV component that has HDMI/DVI output. Even component video would work if you don’t want to spend $49 for DVI/HDMI. Excellant quality. The best part is he free screen that comes with this, which otherwise would easily be another $100 at least.
