After six years one of my sports sites shutdown with two days notice. I had to mrush to contact as many people that I could.

Got me thinking. What happened if it happens here.

If anyone wants to e-mail me their name they use here with contact info please feel free to do so. I guess in this case we would meet on the facebook page.

Any ideas

While it may be the first day of fall, the weather resembles a night in mid-July.

Although it looks like it may be more appropriate for streaming, I think there may be some useful features (on the fly video editing).

I bought a refurb epson mm 30 in 2008 still going strong. IMO you don't have to have HD for outside.  Yes it is better but I am still happy with my unit

I'd prefer an audio out as well, but you get a relatively inexpensive switcher that performs the same functionality (I use this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QJGAKCW/).

I also have the Epson 1040 which is essentially the same projector but with 1080 resolution. Yes, it looks slightly better with Blu-ray content, but I'm still perfectly happy with the 720 picture as well. Many people imagine the picture quality between 720 and 1080 is substantial, but it's really not. It's better if you can afford it, but not a deal breaker if you can't.

For a 144" screen, I predict you'll be quite pleased with anything 2500+ lumens and at least 1280x720 resolution.

That is a perfect solution to my problem. I'm taking your advice and will be willing to go for 720p which opens up my options and also allows me to grab a unit w/ a lack of audio out. Thanks, again!!

The big thing is stay with the big names and don't consider any of the cheap chinese knockoffs! Epson. Optoma, Ben-Q, Viewsonic to name a few. The Viewsonic that was HD on the link you posted looked nice. You've got the specs down.....lumens & resolution are the 2 most important. DLP or LCD is something you have to make a decision on as well. http://www.projectorcentral.com/ is a great resource in looking for the right projector either new or used. Good luck!

Thanks you again for the reply.
So if the specs are good on that Viewsonic, what is wrong with it, other than the fact it does not do 1080p. I guess my question is why should I stay away from it, or what would make you hesitant on it??

They also have an XGA ($409) and WXGA ($449) version of the same projector. Thoughts?


The reason you don't want this model specifically is because it's not native widescreen. The upgrade from SVGA to 720P is substantial while the upgrade from 720P to 1080P is less significant. Buy a native 720P projector to start with since you're on a budget and it will keep you happy for a few years.

For a under $400 new projector, I'd buy this: https://www.amazon.com/Epson-Cinema-Brightness-Theater-Projector/dp/B014D7Y1XC/

I own four of them right now and they are awesome for outdoor movie screens.
TY again for the reply. Biggest downside I have to that particular unit is the lack of audio out. You find the picture quality acceptable at 1080? I was led to believe I wouldn't be happy with a 720p.
