    InFocus IN146 Projector

    Hi all. What do you think about this product:

    http://www.projectorcentral.com/InFocus-IN146.htm

    MSRP (USD) : $825
    Brightness (Lumens) : 2700 ANSI
    Contrast (Full On/Off) : 3000:1
    Throw Dist (m) : 0.9 - 2.3
    Image Size (cm) : 213 - 559
    Optional Lenses: No
    Digital Zoom: **
    Digital Keystone: Vertical
    Lens Shift: No
    Warranty: 5 Years
    Display: Type:
    DLP (1)
    Color Wheel Segs: 6
    Color Wheel Speed: **
    Native: 1280x800 Pixels
    Maximum: 1920x1200 Pixels

    Price is 699 euros here in Finland. I think the price is pretty good for WXGA short throw projector but what about quality? My plan is to buy only one at first but i will expand to two or three projectors later. Any experiences about this product?

    0.48 ratio....Pretty good!

    Like all short throws with no zoom, placement is key!

    I had on older infocus for 4 years, only warranty claim was the fan and that took 2 weeks to fix.

    Re: InFocus IN146 Projector

    The native resolution seems a little low to me. I have a Infocus 800x600 projector that's been collecting dust in the attic for a few years now. I pulled it down about a year ago to see how it looked with a smallish (30") screen size. I ended up putting it back in the attic and getting a 26" 1900x1200 monitor. $825 will buy you a decent 1900x1080 42"-50" TV these days.

    Problem is a decent TV can't give you the immersion of a 110" picture, or better yet, 22 linear ft with 180 degree viewing using three PJ's
