View Full Version : Video Projector

My dad works with this guy who bought one of those projectors to do a powerpoint presentation with for work. It cost him $1000 and he only used it once for about 2 hours. He is now selling it, and said I could have it for $500. What do you guys think about projectors for movies and gaming and stuff. Should I do it?

I seriously doubt it would be worth it for $500.

Buy it and resell it for $650. Reasonable price if it's in good condition.

It's in perfect condition, and I haven't seen any other projectors for sale online anywhere for under $1000.
Plus I have my graduation party in a few weeks, and I'm just going to buy it with the money from that. If I decide later that I don't want it, I'll just resell it on eBay or something.

find out exactly what kind it is. its probaly worth it but keep in mind the bluds usually cost over 200 dollars.

The projectors are good, but only if you have a decent screen/wallspace for it. There's no point in getting one if you're just going to project it onto a 40" space.
They can also be fussy. >:

thanks for mentioning the bulbs. I looked them up online, and they only last for about 2000 hours, and they cost about $600.
Also, I read a lot of bad reviews about the picture quality of this particular projector.
I'm actually quite dissapointed now. :(

you can get some decent brand new projects for under 1000 now, I think infocus makes one. Also the dell ones are supposed to be pretty good and i think they have one right at 1k

I was only interested because this one was only $500. I guess I'll stick to my regular TV for awhile.
My friend ordered some shit to experiment with making a box that will magnify and project your existing TV image onto a wall. Depending on his results, I might do that.
