I finally got around to taking a picture of my Pass & Seymour inlet instalation, which including modifying a 4-gang decora plate and filling in holes with a blank decora panel (available at partsexpress.com). http://s204.photobucket.com/albums/b...t=IMG_0586.jpg Now my Epson is protected via a TrippLite UPS, and meets code. http://s204.photobucket.com/albums/b...t=IMG_0590.jpg http://s204.photobucket.com/albums/b...t=IMG_0591.jpg If someone wants to tell me a...
Mojo, I sympathize. I had the same dilemma you do. I really wanted to get the UB now, but it just became harder and harder to justify. Now that I have it set up and looking great, it's hard to remember why I debated so long. I even had the $2700 budgeted, but the free lamp, and particularly the idea that I can go to 1080p next year for the same amount and then have a PJ to sell or give to somebody else is what made me go with the 720. You certainly won't be...
Haha. You will need a bigger basement. How is this for a dose of perspective: How many people you work with, or that you run into at the grocery store, or the gas station have front projection systems in their homes? They probably think we all must be millionaires.
yeah, and 331 foot lamberts is with the standard bulb. Can you imagine it with the 25k lumen setup? maybe we should peek over in the millionaire forum and ask. haha.
Correction: that Runco is only 9k lumens with the standard bulb, but it can be pushed to 25k lumens (!) with a different bulb. Take a look: http://www.runco.com/sc-1.html And how much coin, you ask? $250,000 I think that pretty much qualifies it as 'bleeding edge.' But hey, being able to project a 40' wide image (!) has its price.
The free DVD player is from ProjectorPeople.com. It is for real, I have it sitting in my living room. I can post a pic, but hopefully we are not that petty. Just visit PP.com and see. The free lamp is for real, too. I sent my rebate form in on Tuesday. Mojo, I tend to think that you and biglyle (and I) are looking at the same issue from two different perspectives. Both are making compromises. $2800 hardly gets you into the "best available" category. What about...
I have run into similar scams. I almost bought a CLK55 AMG from a guy who said he worked for Shell Oil and had been transferred to the Netherlands and they shipped his car for him. He was going to pay the return voyage (about $2K). He wanted a wire transfer (even more suspicious than money orders). As soon as I suggested using an escrow service of MY choice, I never heard from him again. Two weeks later I see that same car (same VIN) listed on ebay. It was...
Louthewiz, I don't mean to sound argumenative, but I don't think that having an IEC connector instead of a standard outlet makes any difference as to whether or not it meets code. You still are running a hot wire that at some point goes in a wall and at another point comes out a wall with no disconnect points at those two wall penetrations. That is not code. If you run your wire through a wirechase, outside the wall, without actually going behind drywall, I think...
Yeah, my bad, I saw the pic in post #2 and thought that it was the PB . . . which was dumb because I have seen those PB kits before. that's not a bad looking faceplate that bigmouthinDC has put together. It looks like a commercial plate for a 20a lockin plug or something similar. Anyway, I'll post a pic as soon as i can.
My guess would be that they changed suppliers for those inlet flanges. I am pretty sure Hubbell is a separate company. I guess your mounting solution is already there for you. No worries about trimming plates. BUT, you can't squeeze it in there with all your other AV plates, it will have to have its own handybox. It is this cosmetic reason (not wanting another hole in the wall) that I decided I would shoe-horn the inlet flange into a decora plate.
