Cheap to Keep

Images What if projectors all of a sudden started costing less, used less power and had lamps that lasted forever? Well, that’s exactly what’s happening. Following on the heels of the Casio’s hybrid projectors, Optoma’s PT100 costs less than $200, uses only 24 watts of power and has a LED lamp element that is rated at 20,000 hours. That’s the equivalent of more than 11 years of six hours of daily use and the power use of a notebook computer. On the downside, it only puts out 50 lumens, about one-twentieth of a traditional projector. It has an acceptable 854 by 480 resolution, has a built-in speaker, can fill a screen of up to 8-feet and be connected via composite and VGA jacks. Look for a full review in the coming weeks.
