    Hi

    Have an Epson TW100

    Is this a sensible thing to do and replace it with a Infocus 5700

    Whats the TW100 worth

    I am not a top geez on this but when I was shopping for a PJ I noticed there was alot of 5700 on ebay going very cheap when I searched around for info I saw a few web pages explaining overheat and bulb issuse. this was enough to put me off but that said its reviews are good and its seems to be a good PJ but then again if you own a TW100 you already own a good PJ..



    here are some reviews on the 5700 for you to peep at.

    Worth noting that the lower resolution of the 5700 means that it is not HD Ready whereas there is a chance that the TW100 is. According to the specs. we have on your projector it will accept a 720p signal at 50Hz which means it might actually be a wiser move to keep it.
