The upside is its perfect for those on a budget, the cost to replace a regualr 5000h lamp on the big brands can be a small fortune.
I am hoping the componants are sturdy enough to outlast the bulb,so if this can last me 5 years its money well spent.
i Worked it out, even if i was to use the projector based on lamp life for 13 hours a day it should last me about 7.5 years, yes i know thats the theory, in practice who knows.
Hopefully as long as i keep it dust free giving it plenty of air i doubt i`ll have a problem.
This is definitly for the budget market, the controls and setting are pretty basic no frills, whilst its possible to change Red Blue Green color settings on vga, HDMI setting does not; giving only options for saturation, contrast, brightness & crispness, (the VGA mode has no Crispness) HDMI mode has 3 predifined picture settings cool, warm & normal. User setting is also here but for HDMI it ony saves your user contrast, brightness & saturation + crispness. There are no other color menus to access.
I am pretty happy with the CRE X1000. considering the last projector i had was only 800x600 lol,
i took a picture with the camera to show the whole width of the screen image, then tried to photo the window of the hut guybrush is standing near
I am standing Near the projector 10ft 8inches away from screen. The screen size is just under 94 inches diagonal.
I am standing about perhaps 12 -16 inches away from screen. The camera got too much light but clear to capture some pixels.
