Happy PJ Anniversary for me,
I made it 6 years without a projector "upgrade" !!! WOOHOOO!!!
although I did buy some new custom HID Projector headlights for my Truck ($1500)
Wow the output is insane over my old halogen headlights!
Strange coincidence , they almost look like a 1080UB pro
To celebrate my old 08' Epson 1080UB's anniversary I bought my first bluray in Months!
the latest Tom Cruise flick Edge of Tomorrow, not a bad movie at all.
I heard the LFE in the intro from the bassheads was a must have so I had to see, or Hear for myself
Totally worth the $24 I paid at Walmart!
The picture quality was pretty good and the movie was almost as good as Oblivion, my last BR purchase
and the Mad Max Fury Road and Hobbit Battle of the Five Armies trailers looked pretty awesome too!
120" screen, 12' throw, 10' viewing distance
I'm at 1900 hours on my third bulb on my 6 y/o Epson 1080 UB (the first bulb and a spare were freebies)
My projector was $2700 but came with a $300 mail in rebate and a spare lamp worth $300..so about $2100
The screen is a 1.3 gain 120" electric drop down I found on ebay for $250 delivered, controlled by remote to drop in front of my wall mounted 50" Pioneer Kuro plasma from a button programmed into my AVR's learning remote.
oh, and to stay on topic
Celebrating with a new Bourbon, one of Ralfy's favorites Alijah Craig 12 y/o 47%
its a bit smoother than the Knob Creek and totally enjoyable straight up for $42
I think my next bottles to add to my collection will be a couple more bourbons,
Buffalo Trace and Evan Williams, the quality seems pretty decent for the price.
Still have not cracked my SmokeHead scotch, maybe next weekend.
