    Looks like an extra from War of the Worlds.

    I was also thinking how do you stop a dvd from landing on your head when you ceiling mount it ! :)

    LOL.

    It does look like a good product that might appeal to loads of folks that would otherwise not enter the front projection market.

    All it needs is a headphone output and it would be all you need.

    It also has a direct digital connection from the intergrated dvd player.

    It's a funky looking thing isn't it?

    However I have to wonder about the integration of a DVD player. Surely they would have been better off to integrate a decent sound system?

    Apparently the sound is very good (relatively!) and add ons will be available to improve this yet further. Industry (and Optoma) v excited about this product.

    With all that heat going on, integrating yet more stuff in the box doesn't sound like a very good idea.

    And if the player goes t1ts up you end up having to send the whole thing back. Or accept keeping a PJ with a broke DVD player in it.

    Looks groovy though...PJ :)

    I was lucky enough to have a demo on one a couple of months ago, great little projector, great idea :thumbsup:

    Picture was good but even better the sound was great, great idea to save space, chuck it on your coffee table and away you go.

    I really do like it.

    If I was in the market for a new PJ, I might go for it.

    It's an optional feature. The box contains some gaffer tape, cardboard, and instructions on how to fashion a DIY iris...PJ :)

    4000:1 is advertised lumens so is probably more like 2000:1 or or so out of the box (set for video).
