    Nice one. Can't go too far wrong at that price!

    Until last week, I was using a 800x600 data projector to watch films on, and once you stop worrying about any minor imperfections and just sit back and enjoy the film, you'll love it. The jump between older data projectors and the likes of the Z3 isn't as huge as some people would have you believe.

    Hi

    My kids have got one of those in the bedroom. I bought it faulty from the classifieds on this forum and repaired it.

    It works just fine - can't really criticise it too much. It uses the Pixelworks chipset and does a pretty decent job of scaling. Even the composite input is remarkably passable.

    One small issue - it's MIGHTY noisy... sounds like a leafblower!

    Wow that's a big leap. For only a £100ish quid more than the £265 you shelled out you could get the Toshiba ET1 which will give you decent results...PJ :)
