Looking to buy my son a led projector mostly for xbox and some tv (through a cable box) and movies through the xbox while he at college.
This is what I've come up with:
Optoma playtime 105- $200, 75 lumens, 800x600
AXXA m2- $325, 110 lumens, 1024 x 768
Acer K11- $350, 200 lumens, 800 x 600
LG HS201- $350, 200 lumens, 800 x 600
This will be used in a very small bedroom, and I expect he can't get the projector more than 4-5 feet from the wall (ceiling mounted).
Obviously if the playtime will work in a light controlled environment I'd rather do that.
Are there advantages to spending the extra money for the Acer or LG and would the added resolution of the AXXA be worth it, if the lower light output is sufficient.
Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice.
If there are any other options out there I'd like to know-- though the $350 is upper limit.
We were going to get him a 32" lcd tv, but these small projectors look like they have real advantages (a bigger throw size being one of them along with the portibility of the projector when he goes to friend's places).
As an aside I have a Hitachi pjtx100 in a dedicated theater room which we've enjoyed, though one of the blue panel seems to be going out. I'll be in the market to replace that also, but that's another thread.
