This all happened right after new years, all seasonal items at HD went 75% off. i'm lucky that I have 5 HDs within 20 miles of each other so if one store didn't have what I wanted, another store had too much of what I was looking for. For some reason at this particular HD they had over 20 window fx projectors and dozens of the xmas tree dazzlers.
This is timely advice to everyone who has bought one or more of the these projectors during the big sell off of 2016. Please check that they are working properly. I;m in the middle of testing all of the projectors i bought and and at least one of them has a bad power supply. The projector itself works correctly (used another power supply to check). Just fyi
Very cool about Window fx upcoming products. I like that they are sourcing from numerous vendors (Hallowindow, Jon Hyers, etc) and a few of their own stuff as well. I think the next logical step up is to go 480p on their native resolution, perhaps with a hdmi input as well. They'll probably keep the original projector as their base model but I think to keep below $100, 480p is likely the next option.
Going with either a dlp or a resolution higher than 480p probably prices them out of the...
One of the things I found on sale for a ridiculous price of $9.99 was this
Whats to like about this? Very low speed but very high torque (enough to rotate 100lbs) a full 360 degrees. And it has a powered plug to boot. I'm thinking something projected that will rotate continously. Haven't sorted out the nitty gritty yet but for under $10 its a win-win option for me.
Got the last 4 btw :-)
I'm happy a lot of you managed to snag this projector at $17.25 when everything went 75% off this Monday. I actually snagged 5 for me for upcoming projects which might not even be Halloween related. Watch this space for updates!
I think projection displays are a very easy and exciting way to celebrate occasions throughout the year, whether indoors or outside. And when you can do it with a brand new projector for under $20, it makes it even more compelling to dive into.
Happy New Year...
