    I don't know why people are going out and spending thousands on front projectors when you could just order this system!!!:

    Because I know a few of you are too uptight, I AM kidding.

    This and the great white van sales. Who knew that you could get THE best speakers and other electronics this way?

    WTF? What is that system exactly? A joke? Binoculars? A magnifying lens? A picture of a TV?

    I don't get it.

    It's pro'lly a 6" fresnel lens or something along those lines.

    I know someone who did something like that in the past.. worked pretty well, too, but there were certain qualifications.

    1. Old 4" black and white set (actually, kind of greenish.)
    2. enlarged size: 20".

    I seem to recall him saying he needed to reverse the scan on the tube to get the image right-side-up, right-reading, but that's a little bit too hazy.

    Also, a nightlight would probably wash out the picture, and you would have a .1-degree viewing angle [​IMG]

    I remember when these were first becoming popular on the net, there were always the people on IRC that kept chiming in they had a 100" TV set. [​IMG]

    Wow, it must be good. All those "reviews" can't be wrong. For $16.95 it must be a technological breakthrough. Oh well, now all the front projector and RPTV manufacturers are sure to go out of business. As a matter of fact, since I expect others to come into this market, it wouldn't surprise me if competition drives the price down to under $10. Now all the TV's in my house will be 175". Oh happy day.

    I'd be willing to bet the testimonials on the site are from people who signed up to help sell it and get the $8/sale commission + $2/sale on a tiered sale.

    Hmmm...wait a minute...this does sound GREAT! Guys, it really really works:wink: Buy from me. Ron! Packy! Can I be the exclusive HTF distributor? I'll rebate $1 for every sale..ok, $4. Did I mention the sale this week on direct digital cable, a straight path on a thick thick digital cable, no it only looks like a coat hanger. Do NOT hang clothes on it, it will redistribute the electrons from their neutral position.

    In the screenshot section of that website, they pulled the pictures from the website of a forum member either here or on AVSforum (I forget which). And no, he did not have a MaxTheater setup.

    I would have sued em for copyright infringement.

    I love how they NEVER show you an actual picture of what their device looks like or exactly how it works! I noticed they have a money-back guarantee, but you have to request the refund and there's a "restocking fee"- I'd return it if it didn't look exactly like the pictures on the site!
    I wonder if they'd come do an in-home demo? [​IMG]
    I guess for the best experience, you should use this with white-van speakers [​IMG]
