cheap/good video projector

3264 19
Just wanted to pass along. I ended up getting a Torpedo dark room projector off of ebay for around $100. I tried to find it in stores but no go. I probably went to like 10 different targets & walmarts.

The quality of this projector is very good. Of course, the darker the better but it's perfect for our halloween use!! I did a Madame Leota setup. Worked like a charm!

The quality isn't HD or anything like that but for Halloween prop use it more than measures up. I turned on the lights in the room and used it. You could still see the image fairly well. The reviews on this thing are very good too (that's what sold me on it).

I would say this is a definite buy cause the cost is well below the cheapest projector I have seen out there. Personally there is no way I am putting an $800 or more expensive projector outside. and plus for what I paid...I could end up getting 8...oh, the projects I would do...muhahaha!!!

Hey Billman, thanks for the advice! I've been contemplating getting a projector for my yard haunt and that price is great =)

I read on ebay that it can be hooked up to video game consoles, video cameras and digital cameras, but it didn't say anything about DVD players or PC's. Do you know if this can be done?

Thanks!

yeah, it accepts RCA plugs. like so:



There are all sorts of converters out there...so you can basically hookup any device. USB to RCA:

...3mm to RCA...and so on..I saw you can even hookup an iPhone. This gives all sorts of possibilities to set this thing up.

I think it's true with all the bad reviews on this thing...they are expecting some sort of HD quality from a cheap projector. The "screen door" effect is really evident if you blow this thing up to a full wall size...smaller sizes not so bad.

IMHO for what we do...it is perfect and best of all cheap!!
Thanks so much! I didn't even know that converters like that existed! Oh the possiblities >=)
