Projector

Post by Magic-Man » Wed Jul 06, 2005 4:35 pm

Hey, i just recently bought a projector. It is the Ezpro 550. I really like it.
The first 2 hours i broke 2 bulbs so i had to wait for another week before i could get more! I am sure you can realise my fustration at the time.
The bulbs i bought are £5.95 EACH!! I bought four and last around 70 hours.
I bought the actual projector off ebay at £155.00. Very good price as i saw one go for £300. It came with everything.
It is not the newest, best projector on the market but i like it and it is great for playin PS2,X-box etc on. Especially watching films, and with the surround sound it is great.

cheap, but great!!
Who else owns a projector and does anyone own the same type?

70 hours per bulb doesn't sound right maybe that is why it is cheap. We got several at work and they never seem to need changing.

Yea, the bulb is a halogen, not a metal halide. Metal halide bulbs can be priced for £100s of pounds, but can be used at around 1000 hrs. But for me they are too expensive. You cant argue at £5.99 per bulb though.
I only changed mine because i put them in the wrong way :P
