Budget projector for screening.
 
Sanyo PLC XU41.

I'd recommend this to anybody on a budget who wants to experience the big screen.

Excuse the Crapberry pics! They seem to dull the image a little. It is a lot sharper also

Pic is about the width of a 3 seater sofa with the projector rough;y 12ft from the wall.

This is a great machine which gives a very good picture. I've also had Sky Sports football and motorcycle racing running through it which again gives very impressive results. I'm sure the newer HD machines will blow this out the water.But so will the price!

If your on a serious budget or very apprehensive about blowing 500-600 quid as a first timer i'd recommend these. Mine cost 120 i think but it is in excellent condition. They can be found for well under 100 via ebay. I'd guess that the could pic one of these up, run it for a while and if you find you want to upgrade, still get your money back on ebay.

Cheers Mr White, I like the idea of em but what about the bulb? I've heard punters get a shock when it goes and a replacement can run over a hundred quid, but keep us informed on how it's going, looks pretty cool tho.

If I ever replace my projector I would go for one that uses LEDs. You can get about 20,000hrs of projection.

This doesnt look too bad for a budget LED projector

I can get bulbs for about 70. They last around 3000 hours i think.

Usage of around 3 hours a week gives a lot of screenings!

The venue i've got my eye on has its own screen, projector and raked seating. Souds nice, buts its 25 per hour. You might get a pub/club/function room for less (even free) but you have to provide your own gear.

Swings and roundabouts.

how short is the throw?

Mr White 07-31-2012 10:20 PM

What is 'throw'?

sweetpremiumwine 08-02-2012 05:44 PM

Throw (projector) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

'short throw' is good because you can get a big picture in a small space.

Is that any different to the official DVD/BD from Shameless in terms of runtime/content?

Ooooh! My step father used to have a projector. Don't know what he did with it. Would love to have it now.:confused:
