So which is it?
1080 lines or 1200 lines.
The spec list says 1200 whereas your text says 1080.
I had to laugh at the 'light controlled dark room' :) :) :)
Nearly 3 years ago Optoma briefly sold a projector with similar specs and for the same price. I'm lucky to have been in the market for one and snapped it up. It has taken that long for prices to drop to what I call more reasonable levels.
Oh, and a Canon Xeed does not cut the mustard. I've compared the Optoma and the latest Xeed and its chromatic abboration is truly awful. For a company that makes optical kit I am very surptised.
This seems like a nice bit of kit.
It is a real pity that there is nowhere in the UK where you can actually go and see a whole load of projectors side by side and compare them for the sort of use you are going to make of them. You basically have to buy sight unseen.
If El Reg knows of a place, please let us know.
