Deal Details

Woot [woot.com] has the Qumi Q5 Projector on sale for $299.

There are many more projectors on sale too but this one stands out.

It's one of the best prices I have seen so far even though it is refurbished.

I think Woot has a standard of $5 shipping but in my experience it is reasonably fast shipping.

Enjoy Smilie

I have a very similar projector that I use for movies and games in my apartment. The best part is how portable and easy to mount it is. I have yet to try the 3D but that's just a bonus. With 500 lumens I am able to make a 100+ inch screen that looks good in moderate light and looks amazing at night.

I can post a picture if anyone is interested.

If I didn't just pick up an LG I would buy this. Great price and 180 day warranty for a refurb is pretty good.

Here are two pictures. One is Low [photobucket.com] light and the other is with Moderate [photobucket.com] lighting.


(The text in the projected image should be legible but my camera was having trouble focusing)

I have the QUMI 3, which is similar except for the lumen (300 / 500).

I'm very satisfied with it, it's a good product. Good image quality, very silent, very portable.
On the cons side: the speaker is so lousy they should have spared the few bucks to put one in, and the focus changes as the bulb heats up, so ideally you have to switch it on 5 minutes before actually using it (otherwise, it will be blurry at the beginning, then become sharp, and if you adjust the sharpness at the beginning, it will become blurry and you will have to adjust the sharpness again once the light bulb is warm)

OP, do you know if it will do 3D in HD (1280x720) and if the projector is capable of 1280x720 @120hz? I got the LG a few months ago and found out only in the manual that even though it's 1280x800 native for 2D, it will only do 3D in 1024x768 which is kinda useless. Thanks.

I've never purchased or owned a projector before, so I'm actually not sure what to even look out for. Is this a good projector if you plan on pointing it against the wall? How well would it work with the lights on? How large would it get before it gets blurry? Does it manually focus and can I control how "large" the screen is? I've only dealt with really old ones that they have in school. Sorry for the newb questions!

To add to the above questions, what would be an ideal speaker solution for portability? Say I wanted to take my Roku, this, and a sound solution into my back yard. I assume the HDMI cable would go from Roku to Qumi... how would I hook a good portable speaker up?

Thanks!

Also, is there a way to get an extended warranty?

It has audio-out just use that (aux)

Woot offers extended warranty through trade square i believe. I just used my amex to double the manufacturer 180 day warranty
