Default Ebay China-Projectors

Anyone have any experience with these?

Its 330$. I'm not completely concerned with image quality because I kind of want this just for parties and watching movies in my pool. Though obviously I want to at least be able to see the character's faces.

* Resolution: 800xRGBx480 concurrently 1024x768
* Lamp-house(golden bittern lamp): 175W

Those are the only two things that worry me.. I have no idea what 800xRGBx480 concurrently 1024x768 means?? At first I noticed the 1024 resolution, and technically to display 1080p it should display 1080x720 IIRC... Though I'm not sure that is correct or not.

Secondly, looking at the light energy rating of the bulb, it might be a bit low. Contrast ratio is completely irrelevant when it comes to display devices because it is not an ISO. Every company rates theirs differently, but the light output from bulb rating is pretty good indication. Other HD projectors in the ~1300$ range typically are around 250 watts.

That said, I'd bet its worth the cost of the projector.. Someone get one and report back!

The projector is manufactured by Hongtianpao Digital Electronics Factory in Guangzhou city, Guangdong. A picture of their beautiful facility at 28 Yashen Road, Yayao Town, Huadu District:

It is model HD66, of highest quality for result which can be finest.

The native resolution is 640x480 at 4:3 aspect ratio. It will also accept and downconvert 800x600, 1024x786 and 1280x1024 on the VGA port, as well as 576i/P, 720P, and 1080i.
