Hmmm.... Been wanting to pick up a projector to carry around with me to various outdoor events with friends. Is 2500 lumens bright enough for something like that?
There are some super bright Optoma projectors that might work better.

I have a question hopefully someone can answer.
I bought the $120 projector recently. It was also 1080p so it looked pretty good on the wall. Got a screen and its pretty small compare to the wall and doesn't look good. Can I paint my wall white, would that make it look better than beige wall? are some screens bigger than 120"? cuz thats small and seems very thin too.
Thanks
Yes, it will look better, but you need a neutral white. A neutral gray would also work for better contrast but would lower brightness. Check out this forum for paint colors. https://www.avsforum.com/forums/d...ction.110/

same here. early evening viewage was the issue. i decided i needed 3k+ lumens. ended up going with the Optoma HD146X which was $549 on amazon at the time.

tryna watch them early prelims!

*edit - very happy with the projector!*

I can personally recommend this projector especially at this price level. I bought this same one back in February directly from Epson as a refurbished and it has been exceptional. I absolutely love it. Movie nights every Friday and it's still working flawlessly and perfectly.
I had a cheap chinese crap prior to this and it broke after a month.. it was a tough pill to swallow even tho it was only $100 lol. upgrading to this has been great

Been waiting to find a good deal on a projector for my screened porch! Just bit on this one.

Also picked up a $15 wall/ceiling mount from Amazon for $15. My initial idea was to build a shelf, but for $15, the mount is a no brainer.

Thanks OP, and to all the helpful comments in this thread!

Anybody know if the USB port on this projector will supply enough power to run a Firestick? If I'm reading the specs right I think it should but real world doesn't always match the theory. I'm trying to set up something portable for my parents with as few connections to make as possible.

I just bought the Nebula Capsule Max for $350. Wondering if this one is better? Capsule is wireless and has a built in speaker that's pretty solid.

If I didn't already have a BenQ 4K projector and 2 1080p projectors (one of which is idle since I only have 2 HT setups), I'd be all over this. Plus if I get another projector I want it to be 4K with HDR/DV, so I'll be waiting a while. Until my lamps burn out, I'm set. Epson people are lucky that their bulbs are about $80 vs. a $250 rip for a BenQ.

This is a great deal for a new projector and anyone who wants a movie-like experience. Even though I've only used DLP, I know Epson's 3LCD looks good too. A movie in 1080p on a 120" screen looks more cinematic than a 4K 70" TV, and it's about half the price. Sure you're missing the HDR color but otherwise I can barely tell 1080p vs. 4K (which is 2160 vertical) resolution on a large screen if you sit back at a normal distance like 13'.

Unless you're barely making ends meet or you can't hang a 120" screen (mine is actually 116" diagonal even though they call it 120") in your room, everyone should have a projector for a better movie experience and so you can play 3D (unless you're a 3D hater). 120" electric drop-down screens used to be $80-$150 back when Fry's Electronics wasn't a joke.

As I've said before, I have no plans ever to buy another TV because projectors are so much better, plus I love 3D. When TV makers removed 3D from their TV sets, they removed me as a TV customer. I'm happy to give my TV business to projector makers instead who haven't abandoned 3D like the fickle TV ones.

Yes, everyone needs a projector if they care about a cinematic movie experience. Try it before you return it. I know you have to invest in a screen, but when I first saw my projectors playing a Bluray in a dark room, I said "this looks so much better than my TV". I even ran something called the rabbit 3D crosstalk test on each 3D TV and 3D projector I have. The projectors have so much less crosstalk and ghosting than my TVs that I really enjoy 3D movies on a big projector screen. I suppose a 85" OLED 4K TV with HDR/DV would be equivalent if you sat 8-10' away, but that's at least 5x the cost. When it comes to watching movies (as well as certain other things) size matters.

I have this from a crazy deal I stumbled upon at Walmart ($180 clearance). It is a solid projector but won't wow over a 4K TV except in size it can do.

Some things to note I've run into it is a loud on normal brightness. When you put on ECO it gets really quiet BUT if in a really bright screen, it flickers. Not noticeable in most movies and TV but if on a computer screen it is super noticeable. Also I had to run 25ft HDMI cables to it and my xbox runs it perfect as well as my computer but my PS4 Pro and Apple TV will blink on and off, fixed it by running it through the xbox. Not sure if bad cables or if they can't push signal that far (I welcome any advice).

The audio is decent enough, sound bar still recommended for movies and it actually fills in some surround on my speakers so I do use them. The 3D works well with 3D side by side movies but does kick the fan on when in 3d (I play it over VLC on PC and it auto converts to 3D, have to hit button twice for some reason). I'm ordering some side by side blue rays and will test.

A WARNING I got the wrong 3D glasses to start so be sure you get RF Bluetooth ones. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1 These are alright for cheap. Build quality (on 3D glasses) leaves some room to be desired as battery can pop out but bendable plastic to make comfortable for cheap 3D.

Hope this helps.

OK, thanks. I thought 1060 was brighter and I don't care about 3D. I thought this model was in a higher category than the 1060.
It is. This projector is supposed to have much better contrast compared to the 1060. I love my 1060 to death but I won't lie, the contrast could be much better.

Thanks I will give it a shot. A screen is a must? not just white wall? I also use Sonos for speakers in my house so assume those wont work with this and will just use audio from it?

Confused by the comments so far. Is this a 3D projector? I see it's a "3LCD" projector but didn't see anything in the description about 3D.
This projector is what marketing would call a "3D Capable" projector, although this spec isn't mentioned in the Walmart description. All that means is that it the projector itself supports 3D, but does not come with 3D glasses (in this case, active shutter), so no 3D out of the box.

3LCD has nothing to do with 3D. It's just a different way of projecting color images onto the screen. Without getting into the science behind it, 3LCD is basically a competitor to DLP projector technology.
