Found this projector for $45 and seller has an extra bulb included. I'm all over it if it will work for a ghost projection on a window. I don't know enough about the requirements to know if it would work, other than that the lumens seem good. So what do you ghost projection pros think? Good one or not?

I think that is a serviceable projector assuming the throw works out. I'm kind of in the same boat.

I've picked up a few Mitsubishi XD500Us and pretty happy with the performance. I was wondering how much improvement is there to go to better projector with more lumens and HD? Not sure if the gains are worth the extra money. Wondering if anyone has experimented?

If the lamp life is still good, its a decent projector. I used to own a Sharp A10x pj for my home theatet and it was great for dvd, hd, video games, blu ray, etc. The specs on my A10 are very similar to the Sanyo except the Sanyo is much brighter. You'll want to get a HDMI to VGa for best results or go el cheapo and use the composite yellow RCA out your playback device

And with the lamp life rated at 6k hrs, I'd have no problem having it on all night. Great for backyard movies as well.

Got it! Did a little testing with a dvd player and a Lord of The Rings dvd and I think burning the ghost file to dvd is going to be the simplest way to go. Tried getting my son's video camera to host an mp4 file, but it is picky with it's file structure and does not want to play nicely with videos added to the card from an external source. Even tried recording an MP4 with the camera, then replacing the recorded file with a movie file in MP4 format that was named the same. Oh well, a dvd will probably be more bulletproof anyway. Now all I need is my shower curtain liner and the video file and I'm ready to roll!



Movie test in a somewhat darkened room. Closed the curtains, but that was it, still plenty of ambient light. Projecting widescreen because of the movies format. I should have no problem getting the image size to match up with our window size.
