Thanks for the tips to order it via Paypal. I didn't pay for the extra long warranty, I'm okay with waiting for it in case I ever need to RMA it. I know, projectors...but. Anyway. It was an impulse buy. At that price I couldn't say no. Esp since NCIX / Paypal won't even charge my CC until 21 days after it's delivered. It was a little tight as I only ever buy stuff cash (my CC is actually a bank card...no buying stuff on credit for me!). I pay the iron price.
Looking forward to setting this up! After reading about the nasty ghosting of the expensive Sony at 60hz at 1080p, I figure I may as well skip worrying about a cheap projector for under a grand, and just enjoy 24hz/1080p or use 60hz/720p. The Sony for three grand ghosts like crazy apparently even at 720p / 60, meaning there is literally no point in paying / waiting for a better projector than this one. I feel lucky that I'll be okay, and got the 30 day free RMA shipping option in case it's busted during shipping or arrives with defects.
