    We have these at work and used it for watching the Melbourne Cup in an outdoor shaded area. Very good quality for the price.

    Guys I’m newbie in projectors, but for half that price I can get a 720p HD kogan projector with 55000h lamp life, 20k:1 contrast and 3k lumens. Is there anything else to look at that I’m missingh? Should I go with the kogan one? Cheers

      What are you planning to use it for? I would be shocked if you wouldn't be way better off buying this deal.

        Hi there, just to watch some series on netflix… I have a good size living room with a big plain white wall, I want to buy a 5.1 ch home theatre as well

      The Kogan one is LED which is better for presentations, whereas DLP is better for fast moving content (movies)
      The Kogan one dynamic range is only 2000:1
      I'm also guessing the colours on the Kogan one aren't great.
      It is a fantastic price though, but don't think it will be as good an experience.

      If you don't wana spend lot of money and fine with 720P native resolution , I would suggest Vivibright GP100 , very economical and has got good reviews on youtube. Here is the link if you wana buy https://www.gearbest.com/projectors/pp_775859.html

      Some youtube reviews :

        +Plus this, I recently bought this projector and it's very good for the price.

        Here are the previous deals on this projector:

        Basic version

        Android version

        If you have mi box or any media box, I suggest to just get the basic one to save you money, I have the Android version and it is frustrating to use with the remote control.

        Also bought this 100" Pull up Screen and highly recommend it.

          I ordered it as well, haven't received it yet. I checked the reviews on the youtube and then decided to buy basic version. I will buy an android tv box later on as the dedicated android tv box will have better features with good wifi and stable android with optical out to use my home theater for the audio out, lot of options for around $60-$100 range.

          @koolchamp81:

          Good choice, the android os is the mobile version and very hard to use with remote, you need a keyboard or mouse to navigate. I'm now using a mi box and connected a soundbar via bluetooth. Very good entry level projector, only issue is it's a bit loud and doesn't focus on the entire screen, but hardly noticeable when watching movies. Match it with a portable pull up screen, and you can watch wherever you want.

        Dude that is amazing, even cheaper than Kogan's one… I will check the specs but probably will buy one. Thanks a lot!!!

      I’ve got an Optoma Short Throw projector that hasn’t skipped a beat in the last five years.

      It just keeps chugging away through movies, gaming and watching The NSW Blues choke year after year.

      So, as a brand I thoroughly recommend them.

      If only the Blues were as reliable.

    We purchased an Optoma projector at my old work. Image quality was fantastic for the price. Unfortunately it failed after 10 hours of use.

    Small sample size I know.

    •  

      How was the return process? amazon are normally pretty great. More interested in if you dealt with Optima directly or not and how that went.

      •  

        We purchased it from an Australian online store. Can't remember the name. Projector was down for a few weeks. Did the RMA through the store from memory.

    •  

      I've got the Optoma HD141x. Never missed a beat, had it for 12 months, great home theatre experience.

  •  

    I have had an Optima at work for years without issue. They are locally supported from Ambertech in Sydney.
    Great value for money for a 1080 projector. I have not used this specific model, but I am tempted.

  •  

    I have been using previous model which is HD141X for 3 years so far. Ordered from Amazon and paid u$499. It is fantastic picture quality for watching movie on the wall. Kids are like to watching animation. However it is entry level projector it is good for starter.

  •  

    Very tempting! Are this usable on a white wall or are you better off buying a screen? If so, does anyone have any suggestions on an affordable screen or any other tips & tricks when it comes to projector screens?

    Alternative would be BENQ W1090 for similar amount.

    •  

      Can't find the 1090 for around 700.. Did they jack up the prices?

      • +1 vote

        They’re usually around $900 so you’ll probably need to wait for an eBay sale.

        •  

          Ah fair enough. I have the benq w6000 which is a bit dated and I'm reluctant to replace the globe for $360. Might try and flog it off on Gumtree and buy the 1090 when it's next on sale. Cheers again

    would this be acceptable for projection mapping?
