Using Amazon Prime credit card will also get you 5% cash back, and their 3-year warranty is only $34. I got mine last week, and my family is in love with this unit. Just buy it!!!

This is better than the 143x, and more lumens. Grab this.

This screen is 119 in 4:3 or 105 in 16:9 pulled partially for $53. I have it, and it's good.

I have never used a projector before. How far away do I have to be, and how dark is your room? Sorry for the lame questions, but I'm clueless! : )

You can Google for Optoma HD27e throw distance, and then go to Optoma USA website, click on "Thow Distance " tab. It will help you calculate the screen size.

As far as darkness, you can watch it with some ambience light, but the darker your room is the better. There are some good reviews of the HD143X and this one, look them up.

There are many issues to consider. Where do you plan to put the projector? What kind of lighting condition do you plan to use it in? What surface are you projecting onto? (Personally, I'm just using the light beige painted wall that came with my house, but I've been told that getting a real screen or using projector paint would produce a better image.)

You could potentially buy a stand [amazon.com] (which is what I have) to put the projector on. Real pros probably find a way to have it mounted to the ceiling. Then you have to consider the throw distance [projectorcentral.com] - how big of an image will you project based on how far away the projector is. Some projectors (short throws) have large apertures / big outside lens and will project a big image from just a few feet away. Normal projectors might require being 12 feet away for a 120" diagonal image.

Do note that a projector will not produce an image as good as even the lowest level name-brand 4K TV. The only reason to really get one is to fill a room with an image that's larger than what you could get a TV for - say a 120" diagonal. If you just wanted a 75" screen you'd probably be happier with a 75" TV for $750.

Thank you so very much!!! There's a lot to consider here, and now I'll be researching!!

Im fairly knowledgeable on the differences between crap TVs vs nice ones. I love my 65 lg oled.

However, I'm a newbie at projectors....what's the difference between this and say, the $79 VANKYO LEISURE 3 with its 7000+ 4.5 star reviews?
(EDIT, SORRY I just noticed that one is native 480p. I hate how they put 1080p in the title, but they do have the vankyo v600 for $249, compare? )

I'm looking for a outside movie night projector
