Nice! I don't know about these projectors in particular, but I will say that if you're doing this outside on a larger surface, definitely go for something with higher lumens. Also, don't sweat the 1080p if you're not projecting onto an actual smooth high-reflection projector screen. You won't be able to see the difference in detail. W-XGA, heck even W-VGA would look fine against a house. Out of these projectors listed, the MW526A sounds like a great fit.

Side tip from a fellow outdoor movie-shower: if you want a cheap screen, you can get 3 yards of white Roc-lon blackout fabric from Jo-Ann Fabrics (or some other fabric/craft store) for about $15. It's smooth, sturdy, and reflects almost 100% of the projected light. Attach it to two 10ft pieces of conduit tubing from Home Depot for $3, one on the top and one on the bottom. Voila, you've got a nice high-contrast 110" (96" x 54") screen for around $20 total. Rolls up easy, and it's not as heartbreaking if/when it breaks.

Looking to get a projector for blasting movies on the side of my house at night but don't want to break the bank with having to manhandle it outside in the elements from time to time. Is the WXGA a good deal or should I wait for 1080p to drop below $300?

We have a MW526A at work, and it is plenty bright and with good enough resolution detail to get the job done for outdoor movies. At that price, I am tempted to go that route myself. Just did my first outdoor movie last week and was surprised my old BenQ W6000 didn't have the brightness to see it well until dusk. Wouldn't mind having something relatively cheap for that purpose, but don't expect to do outdoor movies more than a couple times a year.

Go for higher lumens. I recommend this 3200 lumen, 1080p projector for $413

Which wifi projector is good? I don't want to run my wires, besides I want to take my projector around my apartment.

Picked up an HT2050 with this deal about a week ago. BenQ mentions the bulbs for refurbished projectors have "at least" 80% bulb life left, but I was kind of worried that would mean the bulb has like 1000 hours on it (BenQ bulbs are EXPENSIVE too...)

Projector showed up looking brand new and the bulb had only 23 hours on it. I suppose they might've reset the timer, but then why not just do it right before the projector goes out? I think it really just has those 23 hours on it, so more like 97% bulb life left Smilie

How do you check the hours used for a bulb?

I got mine yesterday (different model from the same sale) and the bulb life was at 8 hours! So maybe chances are good right now to get a low usage bulb.
