There's an auction near my work tommorrow and they have these projectors:


LP755

LP750

DreamVision WhiteMagic

Panasonic L797VU


Now, I realize these are presentation type units. But if the price is right, and I think at least on the panasonic it will be (it is mixed in with a bunch of "junk" that they did not inventory the entire room,and you have to buy the entire room of "junk")


What are your thoughts on these units?


Regards,

Mark

The Infocus 755 was actually a pretty good HT projector. Usual LCD contrast problems, but I believe there was a pretty positive review at Projector Central.


Yep, found it:

Well the Panasonic has a pretty low contrast rating but you have a couple of SVGA and a couple of XGA... All LCD..


I would assume the scalers to be poor and as they all have manual zoom and focus would think that one of the XGA's would be best paired with a HTPC and running a 1024x576 desktop... This will negate zoom issues and get the best scaling possible out of the PJ...


If all other things where equal (and I know nothing more about these PJ's beside specs I have read on Projector central) then my money would be on the 755 unless I needed the 1500 lumens of the Panasonic... To get it though you appear to be sacrificing some contrast (but notice full on/off v ANSI), for me that's important...


All of the above irrelevant guesswork came from the info here...

InFocus LP755
InFocus LP750
DreamVision White Magic
Panasonic L797VU


I am sure some others have real world experience but I thought I would try and help http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Yes, I lookd at the specs as well. I was impressed with the brightness of the 797 but that comes with a cost of buying 2 bulbs when they both burn out ($795).


Thanks for your comments.
