Beamer/Projector for Home

Dear All,

I am thinking of buying a beamer/projector for my home . Can anyone suggest me some good brands/models priced less than 500Chf.

I also dont know what to look for in a good Beamer or not sure whether it will be really useful. I have never seen anyone really using it at home.


Best Regards,
VV

Re: Beamer/Projector for Home

I am also looking at beamers. I see alot of beamers under or at 500 euro at ebay germany. But i do not know about viewing quality, 500CHF seems low for this.
Or maybe a premium brand but second hand here in Switzerland.
Currently looking at a Panasonic pt-at5000e. This is the only projector I saw working. It has full HD, 3D and is a LCD projector type. Also have a look into the costs and delivery of the projector lamp. For this panasonic can be at 250CHF and can take up to 6 weeks. It has 2000 lumen and really looks very good. A lamp can go for 4000 hrs. I will be using it to replace tv, so i will be watching not only for the occasional movies. Therefore i may spend more than 500CHF for a beamer with higher specs. What are you going to use it for?

I dont think I will be replacing my TV with a Beamer. Planning to use it for watching Movies. I am not looking for a 3D model, would prefer Full HD. I would say, around 10 Hours of use per week.

Re: Beamer/Projector for Home

Beamers on ebay DE around 250 euro claim to have 3000 lumen and more, also full hd some of them. I am not into 3D either, looks like it is on its way out.
Other thing to consider?: distance between the beamer and screen. It will determine the screen size. Fan noise when the beamer is close to you.

Re: Beamer/Projector for Home

Hi,
I got almost 2 years ago the Epson Home Cinema 730HD after reading lots of reviews.
Has resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p) and mostly used to watch movies, not TV. In almost 2 years has around 500hrs of lamp use and working fine.
The price was a little bit over 500CHF, but to be honest less that that you won't find good quality projectors.

The only negative which I think most of the medium-range projectors have is that watching it with light during the day is not that good.

Now you have better models with more resolution if needed around same price.
Also check the Optoma ones,although those ones are more expensive
