I have an infocus IN72 from about 2007. Have it hooked up to my dishnetwork box and watch football games on a 9 ft screen I brought. However just moved and the color seems washed out a bit as the room isn’t as dark as before. Would this thing be much better?

Whoever wrote this description is very dumb and needs to do a lot more research.

This statement is complete jibberish. “Native SVGA/XGA resolution and displays up to UXGA”
One, you can’t have something with 2 native resolutions. This projector is SVGA native, NOT XGA. Also, it cannot ‘display’ UXGA. It will accept a UXGA signal, but it will display it as SVGA.

Also, labeling it as a 3D projector is very misleading. It is a ‘3D Ready’ projector. You have to still purchase 3D glasses and the signal emitter to get 3D to work.

And even if you did get all that, why would you want to watch 3D on an 800x600 4:3 screen? Get a proper 720p 16:9 2D projector and you will be much happier with it that this crap.

One last piece of advise, if you are getting a projector for a home theater or gaming, don’t get one with a built in speaker. Ever.


Ok, I feel better. :stuck_out_tongue:

So other than brightness am I really gaining anything in resolution

Not really. You will have the same horizontal resolution, but increased height. You are gaining a lot on brightness though, although I am suspect to the 3000 lumen claim.

Looking for a unit that I can hook up a Cable box to and watch Monday Night Football, will this unit do it? Thank you, in advance.

Bestbuy states: Vivitek D554 - Up to 650 lumens of color brightness and 3000 lumens of white brightness

Yes, but from reviews, it’s not very sharp. Colors won’t be very bright, kinda washed out, and it won’t be HD. The native resolution is ~ 576p.

Thank you.

Can I use the projector with a MacBook Air? What cable and/or adaptor should I have to connect the two?

Specs say that it has an HDMI port, but HDMI isn’t on the computer compatibility list. Concerned if this will actually work…


I bought this projector from a previous Woot! offering to use for business slideshows and maybe the occasional backyard movie night. With that in mind, I couldn’t be happier. It’s sharp enough, bright enough, and definitely cheap enough to not be concerned that it doesn’t do 1080p in 14 million color depth, or whatever.

So if you’re looking for a cheap projector for a kid’s room, for the office, business presentations, or for outdoor movie nights, I HIGHLY recommend this one!

The computer compatibility is listing the resolutions that it can display form a computer.

HDMI is a connector, not a resolution. It has an HDMI port.

Vivitek says PC and Macintosh Compatible.

Your Macbook Air may have come with a miniDisplayPort to VGA connector. Looks like this.

Today’s lesson: Projector Resolution - Native vs Maximum

I am looking for a projector to watch movies on a big screen outside. Would this projector work for watching movies outside on large blow up screen?

Every conference room I’ve been in in the lsst year or two has had it’s LCD projector replaced with a large flat panel TV. The TV displays so much better. These LCD projectors are going the way of the old viewgraph projectors.
