For those interested, here is my experience with mounts for this projector:

First, I went with this one [amazon.com] for $26.
Unfortunately, after using it for abotu a week I'm sending it back for this one [amazon.com] instead.

The first one was easy to assemble, strong, and looked nice but there is a defect in one point of connection that makes it next to impossible to create a tight and stable image. There are mentions of it in the reviews but it ended up being a deal-breaker for me. The replacement I ordered has fewer reviews but they all seem positive so I'll give that a shot.

Here are the 3d glasses [amazon.com] I tried. They are only $19 and they seem to work well. They also have much better reviews than the glasses in the Groupon deal (search the forum for the link).

I did more than 4 hrs of research on all the budget projectors. And finally short listed and bought this one.
Optima is nowhere to compare.
BenQ can be compared but still Epson 2045 is better because of cheaper accessories(3D Glasses$20, compatible with Samsung glasses), cheaper bulb and above all 35,000:1 Contrast ratio.
No doubt Epson 2045 is a winner !!!

I do not see why not. If I had one I would have tried applying it.

IMHO easily a better deal that everything that I have see for BF ( if you can use the gift cards) due to :


1. Very new product. Everything that i have seen for BF was at least 1.5 years old model. Presented in Sept 2015. Up for sale less than 2 months ago

2. WiDi / miracast -> no chromecast in this one. MHL is a bonus

3. Cheap bulbs

4. Epson warranty!


In conclusion a great deal OP!

I have a 8350, that still beats this one right? I'm itching for an upgrade, but I don't think this is the way for me to go.... probably need to wait on a LED one later down the road. Awesome deal though Smilie

How long has this been running? I can't get to the store until later tomorrow to sign up for the Gamer's Club. Wondering if I can order now without the bonus card and then add it after the fact in store. Maybe return/re-buy as last option.

Any thoughts?

I would advise people to research on their own then going for a blanket statement like better and winner... it depends what you prefer to live with.. all have pros and cons..

I research the same and will be going with 1085st but this 2045 makes a good run for my money.. but I rather have the better quality picture and better blacks.

thinking about it, I might have to jump I just really wanted short throw but this price is so tempting.... just wondering how I would spend the 300.. all I need is mount screen and long hdmi.. wonder if we can get that at best buy..
