My vote goes to Feverish w/ the "Frensal" lens. Especially since the idiot cant spell Fresnel!:D

But what do i know, i'm working like an idiot for a living and he is scamming people, living the high life.

I cried because i had no G90.... til i met a man who had only Digital.

There was a thread on this forum about Fevrish's "100" TV" a couple years ago. They were beating up on him pretty bad and someone sent him an email and linked him to the thread. He posted a couple times to give his side. His story was that the value in what he's selling is not in how well the thing works or the quality of the picture. Instead he emphasized how it let's a father and son bond with each other while building a do-it-yourself project together. Said he's received a lot of testimonials from his customers who talked about the father/son bonding thing. According to him it's gotten a bunch of kids off the streets and off drugs and turned em to the straight and narrow.

Just to clarify, because I forgot to use the [sarcasm] tags in my quote above.

It was an inside joke because a scammer used my screenshots last week to sell a similar kit.

I do not endorse these kits nor the sellers.

I don't know. It would be a shame to see all those kids go back on the streets and back on drugs because we're too cheap to invest $15 to help them get their heads on straight. Where are our priorities?

I've got it. Let's get them an Ampro. They're about as cheap as the fresnal lens. And make almost as good a picture.

Robert, when he told the story did his eyes well with tears? Did violins play in the background???

Kids off the street....he should be more ashamed of that story than the crap he's selling!:mad:

Your list seems very reasonable to me at least of the ones that I have seen.

Its kind of interesting glancing down the list because it is glaringly obvious that the best bang for the buck has to be the Marquee 8000 by far. Marquee is half the price of a Barco 1208 and better than NEC pg's yet is cheaper to buy.

A Marquee is not quite as cheap as a an Ampro but it does have stable convergence.

Notice we Amproers are so confident in the superlative performance of our excellent projectors that we are not even phased by the ridicule we're subjected to.
Tube wear and burn-in will break our bones, but words will never hurt us.

p.s. but if the ridicule gets to be too much we can bring in Fabio to knock some heads.

Please forgive me Robert, I wasn't intending to step on your toes or put down the Ampro's.

Its just my point was that Ampro would probably be best bang for buck, but not really because as you mentioned convergence issues, which in my mind is a very important issue for crt projectors.

I mean, what good is 9" tubes and perfect focus if the convergence is bad? Nobody wants to be fiddling with convergence when you are supposed to be watching the movie.l

I can take it. :)

I didn't mean to give the impression that it's as bad as all that. Actually one person is telling me that if you're careful to set them up with geometry adjustments that don't make them work too hard, you will not experience unusual convergence drift.

If you're thinking of getting you a 100" ebay TV, here it is for $1.79
Or 78 cents if you want a thousand of em.

http://www.3dlens.com/enter.html (when you get to that page, click on "fresnel lens" on the left hand side).

There are dozens of different eBay sellers peddling these things. There's a way to put them all out of business if someone wants to bother with it.
Just list an eBay auction for "100 inch TV - $1.79"
Then in the auction description just link people to where they can buy the lens.
And if you do a google search you can find pages which show illustrations and directions on how to construct the box it goes in. Link them to that too.
Be sure and add that the picture is so dim that they won't be able to see it.
And tell em if you were them you just would forget the whole thing.
Then Fevrish and the rest of his ilk will have to get a job.
But if you've a mind to do it you better do it in a hurry. Because I'm tempted to order a thousand lenses and give Fevrish some competition.

ahah wow! you guys on AVS forums should be in gangster movies you got some HUGE ones! wow he came here and gave his side of the story!? lol he probably wanted to clear his name so he can scam more ppl
This is the second time a 3 days I heard an AVS member spoiling an evil scammer's plan! lol

Sadly I too sold some of those plans on ebay but I wasnt succesfull my price of 50$ didn't appeal to them I guess :( but my friend did it and he sold 10 of them for 50$

Now I sell legit stuff :) Like broken CRTs :)

Anywho I still heard nothing about the 500 ANSI Barco Reality 812...thats my dream CRT...**dreams**

Here's another little tip for you. Have you ever wanted to read an eBay seller's negative feedbacks but discover that you have to wade through a hundred pages of feedbacks to find the negatives.
Not any more. This will do it for you.

As a test, plug in Fevrish's user ID: fevrish-dot-com

Oh I see. The eBay one.
Yea, you better get someone to look at the tubes. "Lightly used unit" can be eBayspeak for just about anything.
