I'm surprised that they dropped more at noon. All the others ones I have seen the last couple times have been at 8:15 pm. Of course I missed it again but they seem to be getting more and more in. I think they wanted to have that coupon expire before they started selling more.

I added one to my cart, but got the error message stating that my selection of 1 projector was greater than the stock on hand. In other words they sold out before I could get through the process.


One thing I noticed is that when it showed in-stock, the upper left corner of the page which usually says "out of stock" said "clearance" instead. Is this what others have been seeing since this deal was first posted, or might this be an indication that they are about gone?

Just a tip for those who want to get one before it goes out of stock during checkout. Register an account, and already upload and save your credit card and shipping address info into your profile. That way, you don’t waste time typing anything as its already saved.

This has been an incredible upgrade for me personally. Love the motorized lens shift and focus. Absolutely a terrific deal IMO.

Lol I gave up trying since they are so hard to snag and since it seems like some are being sent out with obvious issues as others have mentioned before.

Too bad, I really wanted one but "settled" for a Sony 45ES refurb instead.

Seems OOS again but did get one today finally after waiting for over a month and missing it many times! First projector - very excited! I currently don't have a HT setup to test this when it comes in. Have a dedicated attic space that will be converted to one. Any suggestions on what I can get to project onto to do some testing and figure out how big of a screen to get? Don't really have a white wall - the screen will actually go in front a attic window. Thanks!

Hang a thick white bedsheet, or canvas up to test.


Or if you have a JoAnne's nearby you can buy rubberized black out cloth, or even white or gray spandex (2 layers thick) along with some velvet to build a DIY screen.

for everyone that got one, please post your impressions on the 5040 owner's thread! I'm still on the fence, but might return the HT3550 and go for this.

I can’t seem to catch a break. Even with notifications for new posts to this thread, I never seem to be able to catch them when they’re in stock. Maybe by the time I can get one they’ll have a new coupon available.

I hear you - went through the same thing for over a month until i got an order in today, so hang in there! I second the idea someone mentioned earlier - create your account, add your address/payment details on there so that you are ready to order. I used Check4Change add-on on firefox to monitor and fortunately I was in front of my computer when I got alerted today! Good Luck!

Does anyone have a set of steps to take to verify everything is in good working order once I receive the projector?
