My boyfriend expected to pay 800 pounds plus for a budget projector that would have a good enough picture quality to play xbox games on and watch action films. He payed £499 for the infocus x1 at Pcworld although he was told that the picture wouldnt be particularly clear we had a good feeling about it . We got it home and set it up and after fidding about with the leads for some time managed to connect it to the xbox. There we sat then for the next hour, mouths open with awe. The picture was clear, text was crisp and we get a 5ft by 5 ft picture from about 8 ft from the wall. The clarity is amazing, you even start to forget its just projected on the wall and its seems that its a real screen. Also we were told that we would need to buy a pull down screen to get the best picture quality. We currently project it onto a cream coloured wall and as I've said it really is brilliant. Now we have our own cinema in our small living room. The projector comes with a padded carry case and all cables. Just imagine if you have a large blank wall in your garden on a hot summers night watching a movie under the stars. Get this projector much better value then a 50 inch plasma screen!!
