    Hello all,

    I am looking at a projector for xbox 360 gaming

    I can pick up an infocus in76 for £1000 or there is a deal on the optoma hd70 with lamp voucher/screen for £1150.

    Is there a big difference between the two in term of quality of image. also do you see rainbows on 360 games ( i dont suffer from them but wife can see them occasionaly)

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I have an HD72i and can see rainbows on movies but not on XBOX games.
    I haven't seen the Infocus but understand they are pretty similar performance

    HD70 /w voucher + screen for £1150?!

    AV projector lamps do the HD70 with mount + voucher for £734, and a screen is only around £120 (assuming its manual and not made of gold) :)

    //edit
    Also includes a 10m HDMI cable :)

    Hi,

    I have the IN76 and use it for games, films, TV, PC etc and have never seen any rainbow effect. Although from reading other posts on this forum I understand that the rainbow effect is down to the viewer as oppose the machine? As around I am sure an expert will give you more information.

    The one thing that I did pick up from these forums is that you should always go and preview the projector(s) of choice prior to purchasing. This will help you determine if you will see the rainbow effect with a given projector (again, my understanding from other posts on this forum).

    Good luck.
