    Hi guys,

    thinking about buying a projector to game on and watch films/use for everyday use.

    I have a budget of around £300 but could possibly stretch that slightly.

    so yeah whats the best projector for that kind of money?

    Preferably with a DVI input but if not then vga will do fine Don't need speakers or a remote or any of that rubbish

    cheeeers

    EDIT: forgot to say 1920x1080 if possible, doesn't have to be native

    Welcome to the Forum. :)

    Sorry you haven't had a reply, but that's usually due to one of two things.

    Either your question is so obscure that nobody knows the answer! :eek:

    Or it's asked so often that people get fed up typing the same old thing. :thumbsdow

    In your case, it's definitely the latter! :laugh:

    Can I suggest that you do a search in this section, where there's lots of useful information from KBFern and others.

    Please don't hesitate to come back if you need further advice.

    Happy viewing! :smashin:

    An HDMI input could be used instead of a DVI one. There are DVI to HDMI cables.

    For £300 a second hand 720p is possible such as the Optoma HD700 or HD65. Add another £60 and get a new Optoma HD600 720p. They will downscale a 1080p source to 720p


    Play.com - Buy Optoma HD600X

    You should scan the classifieds thread on these forums for second hand projectors, there's always a good selection. Failing that, put a wanted thread in there with your requirements and see what comes back :)
