It's projector

Hi everyone, I've owned a few projectors over the years, I've always bought a projector, I ask for a projector, and when I talk about one I say ' projector' , for the ones that ( and if there are any here) think they're clever calling a projector a ' beamer' please stop, it's stupid and doesn't mean anything. Thanks

I think I hate that more than 'beamer' :D

I think 'beamer' is more of a German translation/equivalent than a Western alternative description though.

Anyway, I'm going to watch a film on my bad boy later. I love watching movies on that puppy.

I think I need to spend less time over on avs...o_O

I’d never call my moviola thrower a beamer.

A beamer is a car, that’s just stupid :D

Why do you all have ridiculous names for your remote photon assemblers?

As Peter Parker says in the Netherlands and Germany they use Beamer for Projector.

'Up here' a 'Beamer' is a Red face from embarrassment.

Couldn't agree more. I cant stand all the stupid names that are used for various audio visual units.
And if anyone starts up with "this bad boy" I'll give them a slap.
