Please!!!! This was suggested to me by the sales associate handling an order for us for our washer and dryer. The company is in Chicago where we are originally from and could ship this with our order (fee shipping no tax! 😊)
Should I go with it?Huh?

You see you are learning! Grin Grin


A few things first!

1) This projector will not do 3D. **

2) The one Sparge told you about is 200 brighter...but how much that is in real world is not that much IMO.  A little brighter for more money...you make the call...you are looking for early starts!!.....but I think that would only equal minutes over the 2,800.

There is a refurb for a little less from Epson but for the difference, I would stick with the new one.


The 710 (same family as the 725 I believe) version refurb is 399 & the 707 is $299.00

** for me 3D is useless....I don't like it but I am not you.......do your kids at this age Huh?? It is your call. But you will get HD with a Blu-ray player.......not bad.  Will you still be using this projector in five years maybe.....but again it is up to you.    I feel just because it is there does not mean you need it.


Keep in mind your budget

Blow up gemmy screen is $159.00 plus tax & s/h  Sparge's Screen (good value screen) $259.00

Blu-ray players $50 +

Audio system (300.00 & up)

Carts

Cables

Seats ( tell people to bring their own & have a few carpets for the kids to sit in front)

Speaker wire

Power strip


Pop Corn machine Etc    ($160.00 to over $600.00)




What I have said should be seconded & viewed by at least a third person.....I don't have this projector but others do...so please wait for a few others to make sure this is all correct & take in some more ideas before buying.

Please don't rush on this....you are close Cheesy

I'm curious what you think.. it's most intrusive if you rear project. If you front project it wont be  a bother. and if it does bother you enough let me know I will be able to hep you.

SR is right!  In your Summary you put down " family fun! " so live up to that Grin  Keep it fun! I wish I learned that a few years back because my wife tells me I would get mad if things were not perfect......Me get mad Shocked. I took some of the fun out of it for my family too.....& it is fun!


So take your time read up keep it fun! You may even find that you & your friends stay up to watch another movie after the kids go to sleep.


One thing you said in your first post is that you may have 50 kids & parents............I would do a few dry runs first with just you & your kids to make sure you have the setup down so that the big events won't stress you. We have not really touched on audio but you will need some volume with 50+kids.


So back to the ranch!  I think Sparge is right on when it comes to the projector It is bright for a value cost projector. It is not to large & can be setup with audio. I would also say for ease of use go with two speakers & a simple but loud enough audio system for the group size you will be entertaining.....I also think a 10 to 12 foot screen will be perfect for your group.

11,
Thanks for your input.  Rain is back so it looks like Sunday before we can play with it. As for the pj I'm looking at 6500 or 7000 lumens for a pj. Do you use 2 blowers on your 30' what HP.

Rich
Since I have not put a picture on the sheet I have no clue on the seams. It a matt white surface.
I have 2 other choices for sheet.  The screen is removalbe

I'm not in any real hurry ( watch now that I said that a client will call) to get it on the street.

I bought it brand new at a very good price (free shipping). It is a well built screen. will handle 2 blowers, has 4 vents (zippered & velcro). It came with 1 blower


I went with this style for my city hall gig in Sept. (no grass).

We set it up on the front lawn on Sunday. My wife came out looked at it smiled and said I'm going to church and pray for you.  Everybody laughed.
I like it
