I havent really kept up with the LT 150, but can someone explain why everyone is going crazy over this unit. I understand that the Dell price was way way below market price, but aside from that, is there anything else that is making this so popular


Please dont take offense at my question, I dont mean it as an attack on the projector or anyone, I havent heard of this unit before and now I see it on almost every posting

the lt150 first came to my attention when Grant posted an alert when the price had dropped to around $3300. he was so enthused and went on about what a good deal it was since this was actually a (from most accounts) a terrific little projector. i did a search to find out more about it, and with one or two exceptions (from people using it w/ too much ambient light) the consensus was that it WAS a great projector for HT under the right conditions.

Most of all it was afforadable.

to find it at $1700 seemed unreal. thats $1k LESS than the big screen i got 6 months ago.

if this works as well as has been reported, i will be on cloud nine. i would have never thought i could put together a front projection system all for less than the cost of what i paid for a 53" tv.

Take a little time and look at www.projectorcentral.com at their listing of best projectors for HT and dig though the posts here.


Essentially it seems to be about the best bang for the buck is the thing!

In my case its because there appears to be an opportunity to get an excellent projector (so they say) for a firesale price.


I got a NEC vt540 3-4 months ago and really enjoy it. At that time the lt150 was $1000 more and out of my pricerange, also it has less bulb life. After I got my vt540 I was not in the market for a lt150 even at $2800. But at $1700 I ordered an lt150. If it provides a better picture (seamless pixels and contrast) I'll sell the vt540 at a discount and average out the costs. If the lt150 doesn't pan out (rainbow or something), on the auction block it goes.
