Is it possible that Best Buy and Vivitek are conducting some kind of initial market test with that WAY-off-the-mark high price? If so, I hope they are reading this...
I've been "grassy knolling" around here since the LG hs201 started to show that LED's had potential as low budget, low maintenance entry level projectors for us poor folk.
Like hundreds of others here who may not be posting, I WILL be buying a LED unit VERY SOON for my humble man-cave.The Contenders so far are:1. LG HW300T =
It CLAIMS to have a Tuner, Broadband (ASSuming that means 10/100 LAN) , Wireless DLNA and proven lineage.2. CASIO XJ-A240 =
"Its sooo Bright." - EAT MEAT. (Eat Meat posts awesome info, so nuff said.)Vivitek Qumi:
This has the potential to be the ipod of little projectors. 3D or not, at $499
, I really want to like it. At $800, as Borat would say... "eh, Not so much".ACER 500 lumen LED Scooby Doo mystery machine:
*COUGH*vaporware*COUGH* Seriously Acer throw me a bone here, will it have hdmi, is it in color?
I have been waiting years to watch KEWL GUY STUFF on a 80+ inch screen in my dark little nook away from the crying kids. 720p, L.E.D. AND UNDER us$1000 will do.
Features vs price will decide the winner for me.
Price yourselves accordingly Boys and Let's see some Hardware already!
- My First "projector" was a $5 dollar Fresnel lens taped to a 13inch tv. which projected a NEGATIVE 50 lumens image. Anything above that will be like being at a real movie to me.
