Great projector!!


You can find an old used projector that probably will need a bulb for this price, but for the money this is the best bang for the buck option. It may be recertified, but it looked and worked like new for me. This projector does exactly what I wanted --...

Very simple -- fantastic for Wii through the component in. Speakers sound really good for a projector. Can't beat the price

It doesn't have a menu, but honestly the image looks really good for a budget projector. Even in moderate lighting, the image is very clean

Good picture for price ; Says its refurbed, but it looks brand new to me ; Really good picture, got it set up wit surround sound, dvd player, and my xbox

You got to set it on the ground or table, cant hang on ceiling. This can get in the way of the couch and stuff. NOT a big problem though

Recertified: InFocus IN1 640 x 480 DLP Projector 500 max ANSI lumens 1500:1


I don't really want to go through the trouble of trying to send the product to infocus and then waiting on it and I'm wondering if this is something I could fix on my own without worry. Problem could be that the fan is not even connected inside. I'm...

Excellent picture and the sound from this unit is very good. I'm currently testing it out with WDTV that I also received from newegg. I would have to say I am as happy (if not more) as the other reviewers in reference to this product

I let the lamp warm as the guide said and after a few minutes noticed a weird smell (like a lamp being too close to something for an extended period of time). I checked the side of the unit and immediately noticed that the fan was not functioning at all

awesome deal!


Now you're not reading this if you are looking for an overpriced videophile piece of equipment to impress your neighbors with numbers of lumens or pixels. Keeping that in mind this is an excellent piece of tech for the money. I've got a clear picture...

it doesn't make popcorn to go with the movies

640x480 (480i)


The specs are wrong, it's actually 640x480. Otherwise I'm sure it's a good player. Do your research

InFocus IN1 DLP Gaming Projector - 500 Lumens, VGA 640 x 480, 9.9 lbs  IN1


I just started to use this projector, and I will say that it is far better than my Epson powerlite S1+, which is 1200 lumens. DLP will out perform any LCD projector, definitely better than my old one. If you are looking for a starter projector this is...

InFocus IN1 DLP Gaming Projector - 500 Lumens, VGA 640 x 480, 9.9 lbs  IN1


For the money this thing is real nice. I live in a row home with only one window in my living room and some muted paint colors. The picture, even in the day is great. At night in a dark room, even better. XBOX and PC games look great as does TV and...

Absolutely Bang for your Buck! I am an extremely cheap man. I tend to think just about everything is much too expensive. But I am truly thrilled with what you get for this price! The picture may not be high def, but it is great quality. It's as good...
