View Full Version : Projector query(what do I need)
7th August 2001, 19:23
I've become interested in acquiring a projector. This is indeed directly related to winamp, but I've got a few other uses for it too. My main question is what should I look for, I really don't know much about video projectors, but want to have an idea of what others are using. I'm planning to spend around 500-750$,a dn so far the best deal I've found online was a digital projector for around 1500$. I realise i may have to buy used, and am fully prepared to do the rounds of the pawn shops and discount stores(read: flea market & electronic warehouses).
So, if you have advice, or a projector to tell me about, i'd sure appreciate it..
And a special thanks for the guys and gals at Wimamp for continuously rocking my world..

I can't seem to find many details about it's video-fee capabilities. I thought that overhead projectors were only for transparencies. But since you suggested this, I'm guessing it does indeed have a video input (or s-video even?)...
This would be perfect for me, I must now thank you infinitely for your help, and the funny thing is, I have the Apollo p-2250 printer... it's a crappy printer, but coincidences rock!
thanks again, I'm definitely looking into it, and even If I don't buy this one, I've got a whole new area to look into (I was looking mostly in digital projectors)..

Oh wait. I just did a really quick search. And I only just caught on that you wanted somthing to display video. Um... just a sec, I'll do another search.http://www.mear.fsnet.co.uk/grinblue.gif
Well, I just did a really quick search, and you're right. Most everything is really expensive:(. Check this (http://s1.amazon.co.uk/exec/varzea/search-handle-url/ref=sr_aps_allz_2_4/202-0964414-0242249?ix=zshops-uk&rank=%2Buk-first&fqp=status%01open%02sdp%01none%02title%01Video%20Projector&nsp=dbdat%011&sz=3&pg=1%26field-enddate%3D0a-&size=50) out. I'll go do a better searchhttp://www.mear.fsnet.co.uk/grinblue.gif!
Search number 2 reveals this (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000206IN/qid=997308403/sr=1-7/ref=sc_e_7/104-2711885-1425515)

Although It's still a bit high for the budget it definitely gives me more of an idea of what to look for. Thanks for doing those searches, I hadn't seen the second one..
I'm gonna check out the local used market first though, always getting the best deal right?

Check out E-Bat and look for a good used 3 tube video projector, perhaps a sony. I got mine for under $600 and it will display up to 200" diag. Awsome picture, I use it to wath DVD Videos.
