HD Projectors

3 posts in this topic

Hi Every one, 

 

Does anyone have or use a projector for gaming or just films? I have a huge room that one would be perfect for and been thinking about it for a while. If I do get one it won't be until maybe September so I'm in no hurry and want to know what I'm getting into. Been reading a lot of things about them and so far I've got...

 

High lumems = good 3000 will be bright for a lit room/day time. Most projectors will be low enough as they're for business use or what ever. 

 

Contrast ratio = higher the better for gaming 100,000 or more is the best

HD input obviously

 

Refresh rate above 120hz 

 

internal speakers don't matter I'll have a separate system 

 

I'm leaning towards optoma 141x

or the benq1070

They're both DLP (digital light processing) projectors as well, the led ones are crazy money but last so much longer. 

I'm one of the lucky people don't see the rainbow effect on these things so that's not a concern. I don't really want to go about say about €700. Both are 3d but I don't care. If I do get one then I'll watch one film in 3d for the gimmick and then never use it again.

 

I've seen loads of videos on both and they look amazing. Just need a final nudge to convince me to get one later!

I always thought about getting a projector once I get my first house. Have a room set up just for it with that perfect white wall to splash it on.

I'm only renting myself that's why I'm looking at short throw ones, they'll put 100 inches of star citizen on the wall from just 2m or so away. 

I'll be moving in September/August so just in case I don't have a large room to put it in next time.
