These things are garbage. The picture was hardly discernible even after I changed the bulb. Don't waste your money.

there is an EXTRAORDINARY feature....the price.

There used to be a video about a guy that had bought this for $10 on amazon, probably gone now, but he returned it for $10, and there are a LOT of 1 stars on this on Amazon, beware, it's probably not worth it unless you want something really low quality.

With this, you can watch movies in beautiful 240p! Oh, wait...

I bought one at Macy's on clearance for LESS than $10. I took it back. Not even worth that price.

these are great for halloween displays. Shoot some video of your face with creepy makeup and saying some goofy stuff. Then project onto one of those blank Styrofoam heads they use to display wigs and hats. TOTALLY creepy effect and worth $35.

$30 for a projector? So tempting...

Because maybe...
Your gonna be that one that saves me...
and after all...
Your my Discovery Wonderwall Projector.

Well it does at least make you wonder one thing: What the heck were they thinking when they designed this thing and originally priced it at $200!?!?

And it currently says 960x240 resolution but it must be 320x240. 960x240 would be a 4:1 aspect ratio; completely pointless! And via composite video? I don't think so.

Hmmm... 240p? I think my Atari 2600 is higher-res than that!
(yes, still have one, 1st-generation with the 6 switches on the front, still works great!)

Thanks, you all just talked me out of wasting money lol

@kmartind: The 960 x 240 DPI resolution is correct. We confirmed it from the included instruction manual and it was verified by the vendor.

@mikelally: Just watched this video, although informational - this guys eye brows will haunt my dreams for days to come. good find!

almost as cool as Mr. Garrison teaching about game of thrones in the most recent southpark episode

@thunderthighs: They must have been counting the red green and blue cells as separate pixels then. 960x240 makes zero sense.

is that 5,500 parts per million radiator?

I bought this at Kohls and took it back, this is garbage.

vote-for50vote-against

The resolution of 960x240 is a way that some manufacturers list pixels to make it look like something more than it is. 960/3=320. There are actually 960 pixels, but they are red, green, and blue pixels. You need all three to make one color. So while there are technically 960 pixels, you only get 320 groups of color. They did this on cheap car LCDs when they first came out. So the color resolution of this display is 320x240 and nothing more.

@thunderthighs: So if you projected this to the full 120", you would have 1.83 pixels/in!!! Awesome.

Its a toy. Good for kids projecting a Wii on a garage door in the summer and playing games on a large screen. Kids don't care about resolution, only is they can play and see their games, esp. little kids. If it gets broken you are not out allot of money.

WTF you're telling me that a $30 projector doesn't have 1080i and 2 HDMI ports. This is BS.

Have one, useless. You are much better off with a cheap LCOS or DLP pico. A PK-101 blows the doors off this POC.An Optima PT-100 (much less the 105) is Cinerama in comparison.

vote-for4vote-against

I have a few of these projectors. Agree, they are pretty much junk, unless you are just looking for some novelty projection And, hey, If you're still using your PXL-2000 video camera you can use this to show the video with no further loss of quality!

@dijital101: In the not so distant future! A $30 projector will have 1080i and 2 HDMI ports, but we will complain.

WORST PROJECTOR EVER!!!! Received it as a gift, and it wasn't usable under any circumstances. It's so dark, you can't see anything unless you're using it in a pitch black cave. Do not waste your money.

I live in a pitch black cave, would this work for me?

The only way I would use this to utilize for watching tv, is if I had one of those 1970 Dial Tvs and someone gave this to me. Even then I still would prob think twice.

@glabifrons: Hay, I’ve got one of those too; still remember the first time I hooked it up to my up to my 42 inch hi-def tv; the main character in Adventure was 2 inches square; literally, because he is a squarer and was 2 inches…
Have you played any of those new 2600 multi-game conceals that have been coming out? I noticed that my 2600 is quite a bit faster then these modern things…

I have had one of these projectors a while. I'd recommend it for $30. It is wonderful for watching movies. It's not HD, but it doesn't look terrible. If you were planning on using it for presentations or video games though, I'd definitely shy away. You can't really read text with it and the image would be too fuzzy for that. It is good to note that I have had two dead pixels. It has a built in speaker, and a speaker out port, but I haven't been able to get the speaker output to work and would recommend bypassing the projector totally if you don't intend to use the built in speaker. (Again, the built in is fine.)It only has RCA input, so if you want to watch movies off of your computer, I can tell you from experience that it pairs nicely with this:

Maybe good for outdoor parties, casting images on the house for Halloween...Christmas...??? Maybe...during a new moon...I bit so I guess I'll find out...

I bought one for my kids. They are only 4 and 2 years old and they do not know the difference in the picture quality. They will just think it is cool that daddy is putting Dora on the garage door :)

@primussucks: I have both the Atari Flashback 2 thing and some kind of built-into-a-joystick thing, they're functional and work well. My real 2600 still gets more use though. Just more fun.

The brand new joysticks that came with the Flashback 2 are darn nice though.
