is this ok? comments pls.
looks good to me
Matters for what and for what price.
It's a reasonbly good unit, with basic specs. What are you using it for?
1000 ANSI lumens
350:1 full on/off contrast
800x600 native resolution, .7" LCD's
150 watt UHP bulb
Manual zoom lens
Component, D-SUB15, S-Vid, and Composite inputs
? bulb life
am going to use it for my home theater, length of the room is 15ft, im planning to project it to a 100inch screen, with 2 rows of seats. think this is too big?
A few things come to mind with those specs (I personally have not seen this particular model yet):
1. 1000 lumens should be about enough for a 100" screen. I would suggest a gray screen to improve the perceived contrast though.
2. Most projectors with UHP bulbs tend to to have pictures that run a bit cold. It may (may) benefit from a colored filter of some sort.
3. 350:1 on/off contrast is kind of on the low end for home theater use.
4. 800x600 is not quite wide enough for uncompressed DVD use (848x480 is the min).
Is there a particular reason to want this specific model? The $1400 AE100 may be a better choice. Or perhaps some used models. You can get a used XGA 1000 lumen projector for right about $1000.
nope, no particular reason for this model.
ill probably try to check the xw20. im located in the philippines so my choices are quite limited but i think the ae100 is available here.
