Ohh thats too funny. I guess it lets you know it works at least, but it really doesn't make it too apprealing does it ?

I wonder if this is a projector from one of the gov auctions and they're trying to make a quick buck? I mean, why else would you show the picture without trying to clean up the convergence & focus?

Convergence is like when you cross your two eyes, but if you had three. You see double because your eyes aren't aligned exactly on the same points. When you converge you basically put up a waffle grid on the screen and make each of your three eyeballs line up exactly on top of each other so you only get one highly focused picture. In the eBay listing the seller doesn't have the three tube's projected display aligned on top of each other. To do this properly you first do a mechanical angular alignment in the center of the screen and then electronically tweak them together throughout the rest of the screen.


That wasn't ripalicious at all was it?

Just me being stupid, again...

Check out the convergence on this eBay gem.


Not only is the convergence off but the tubes are real toasty.
