dealsoptoma digital dlp projector for $279.99 + $5.00…


800x600 native resolution probably isn't going to be all that useful to anyone with a computer made in the last 10 years, but that thing would be pretty sweet for someone who want to play Nintendo on a really, really big screen.


Lol. 4:3 native. Welcome back to 1982!


@slaker1: I'm going to pull the ol' Tandy out of the attic. It will look awesome hooked up to this!


Isn't it UXGA?
"UXGA (1600×1200)UXGA or UGA is an abbreviation for Ultra Extended Graphics Array referring to a standard monitor resolution of 1600×1200 pixels (totaling 1,920,000 pixels), which is exactly four times the default resolution of SVGA (800×600) (totaling 480,000 pixels). "


From the spec list:
"Resolution Native: SVGA(800 x 600) Max: UXGA (1600 x 1200) 60Hz"

I have the Optoma ML500 LED projector and wouldn't buy anything other than an LED projector, 20-30 thousand hours of bulb life. I'm hoping that in the very near future Optoma releases its rumored 1000 lumen LED projector.


@rsteve: Agreed. We got in on the LED projector deals early, snagging a Casio XJ. Couldn't be more happy. It's incredibly comforting knowing that each and every time you turn on the projector that it's going to fire right up and look incredible. Expensive, unreliable bulbs? Dimming picture over time? Screw that!

Here's to hoping that 20,000+ hour LED technology becomes the standard! :)

vote-for1vote-against this thing any good? Now that someone's taken a more in-depth scan over the specs.


@spike443: Good...for PowerPoint presentations and nothing more.


This is a data projector ideal for the office. Yes it is 4:3 and most all data projectors are because 99% of all office screens are still 4:3. FYI in 1982 you could not get 1600x1200 resolutions. What I like about this is that it has great lumens so it will be bright in ambient light and it is brand new in box. DLP is also a plus for me.
