A lot of hostility there Sheridan. Do you personally have a vendetta with Volare? Are you a competitor? Are you one of those types of people that gets off on trashing someones product/creation? Have you gone through the projector yourself? Can you please post your proof to back your slanderous comments. Pictures, videos, live to see your face while you go through the projector please. Other than you yourself writing a post on an online forum without proof to back your post. As far as a troll marketing this, whom were you referring to? Someone that had a question to whether it was good? Overpaid by $1350, geez the projector is only worth $50? Can you please post a document to where someone can get any projector for $50. I see similar tooling directly from China unbranded for $260. Oh wait a trademark, the lease on a 30,000 sq. ft building, engineers, websites, advertising, warranty, upgrades to the actual projector, accessories, business insurance, employees, electric bills, etc all come included correct? This is a business with a real product which is a good product. Refer yourself to ebay for reviews, more than 2000 positive reviews and one or two negative. You're very wrong with your outlandish foolish remarks. This brand may not be as big as Christie or Runco or even Ben Q for that matter. The fact of the matter is this, it is a brand. I'm not an affiliate of their company. I'm a business man that sells the product. I also use the product. Yes the specs are inflated, yes there are some people who sell this the improper way. There are people who sell every product the wrong way. Saying things it does not do, or they have no idea if the product does something just because the box says it does. Type in the words Sony and scam into google. Type in Bose and the word scam. There are more negative people just like yourself Sheridan that complain about major name brands then lesser known brands.
In response to Barnman, the projector does not have a 3d unlock kit inside. It will play a standard 3d movie with mild effects. It will not play a 3d bluray. I'm glad your friend is happy as arr 99% of people who buy the projector. Any other questions I'm here to help. If your friend ever has a problem with the projector I can put him in contact with the manufacturer.
In response to RPS13, I find this projector to be bright enough with a few lights on at 20 feet. Just because it's a direct sales projector don't be fooled by the approach. I personally know people who have been selling on the streets for 30 years. They have thousands upon thousands of satisfied customers. The days of the white van scam are over. Every company wants you to buy their product now. Every company marks the selling price up from the price that they paid. Every industry makes money off of us. I will agree some of the MSRP prices are ridiculous on some of the merchandise the white van salesmen sell. It's not the salesmen that inflate specs or MSRPs it's the manufacturers. There are a few bad apples that do skimp on their product, we are trying to shut them down. All products most go through an extreme amount of testing to be let in our country now a days. Factories in China have to be compliant with FCC and CE standards of American electrical systems. Do you know that there have been more than 30 million units sold out of the back of vans in America in the last ten years. With less than 4,000 complaints. 90% of the complaints were because of the matter of which it was sold to them. The actual product works, works good for the most part. Please don't hate on people who sell a product, if you hate us you hate every salesmen from every industry. We all push the envelope a slight bit. Look at the mortgage officers who collapsed our economy.
In response to rgtaa, just because a product sells from $149 to $1400 does not make it a scam. I believe a scam is losing your money. Who are you to define free enterprise?? Every product has a mark up. Ebay destroyed many companies. Many well known companies at that. Do you run your own company? Do you have a brick n mortar store? Do you understand business? Your comment sounds foolish as well. Please provide proof to back up your statement. Videos, pictures, etc.
The Volare projector is bright enough to be used in any business depending on the lighting. They're a nice product with several happy customers and reviews. Most of us don't have time to set up review pages. We have our reviews on our ebay pages as well as have the review of many people in person. The projectors MSRP is inflated. Now a days name a product that isn't? Special sale, going out of business, liquidation, selling last years model, buy it now, we have extras, are all sales tactics from companies to sell their product to us the people. Just because they don't have the money to advertise, direct mail, multiple websites, magazines, does not make them a bad company. The industry has changed, the White van mobile audio/video sales/installations are going strong and are getting stronger. The product has gotten very good, good enough to be sold online. The world needs the high end, middle end, and the low end. We have 30 million customers, we have great reviews in our minds from everyone that we give business cards or phone numbers to. We contact them after the sale, or they contact us. Within any industry there are fleas. We are trying to rid the people who do bad business in our industry. We dislike them more than you guys do. I can go on all day about this. The fact is this, the Volare projectors are a low end to mid grade decent projector. Are they a Runco no, are they a wonder wall no, they're a projector that is in between the good and bad. Peoples opinions are great and awful at the sametime. If you have one and are so dissatisfied I can see a real review that can be accepted. However you guys on this thread are throwing out made up negative posts and have not even seen them in action. You guys must have amazing jobs that give you a lot of free time. Great for you. Anyone can write anything on any product, I'd love to know what businesses you own and the products you sell. I'll give my honest opinion. Not a made up slanderous, uneducated, foolish opinion. You are what we call fake reviews. Or in todays terms a Hater. Please keep your opinions real. Real reviews, real stories, real talk. They're worth in between $250 to $700. Depending on models, accessories, cost of doing business, warranty offered. Any questions email me at email@example.com. I have plenty of pictures, videos, to back up every statement I just wrote. Happy New Year, have a great year, may God be with you.
