Wololo reviews the pros and cons of Video projectors, and what features to pay attention to when choosing one for current generation's gaming needs
I had one before and it was cool but then my kids would touch the lens and the life of a projector is short compare to a tv. Pros big picture but the cons are alot.
First off, you obviously didn't have yours mounted or your kids wouldn't be touching it. Secondly in most cases a projector will last way longer then a TV. And if you do your research you can find a very nice projector for under 2k, then on top of that it needs proper adjusment, just like a tv. There is very few cons owning a projector. The key thing is having space for one. Other then that, they are amazing to have.
The cons are cost and the need to have an environment where it can get really dark. Projectors aren't great in lit rooms. I love my projectors, but they're definitely not for everybody.
Don't get me wrong i loved my projector, my screen was 120inch, short throw 3d,i still got my screen but no 3d games. To be honest i want VR headsets more,one person experience but different.
I currently run an epson 5030 on 106" screen and it is amazing for gaming. Highly recommend if you have the space and money to purchase a projector. It's hard to beat that WOW factor when my friends are over. In fact my friend and I put on a few hours of MCC the other day. Having such a large screen makes split-screen coop a lot more manageable. In conclusion, buy a projector.
Totally agreed. Projectors are perfect for split-screen. I used to go to my friend's house for Halo 2 all the time. I may look into getting one for myself now. I just bought the MCC.
Cool for lan parties, but I wouldn't want to use one on a regular basis.
I had the same at home. The projector went bust a few weeks back and im looking into get a new one, Great for Fifa parties when all my mates come around. bit of competition doesn't hurt anyone.
The only time I hook up my console on a projector is when we have a huge fighting game fest at home with lots of friends.
Depends on the projector and more so on the ability to control light leakage in the room it is being projected in.
I have a 140 inch favi screen and a optomo HD220 or 20 forgot the exact number 1080p projector. I have never gone back to gaming on a regular tv, my projector looks beautiful with anything especially 1080 p games. If your willing to invest on a decent projector your in for a treat and they are cheaper than most high end televisions. I dont use regular tvs anymore except in my room. As for 2cents.... Yes light leakage obviously plays a big part in it but even with some light leakage my screen looks great. By the way ive gamed every single day for hours on my projector and i have had it for over a year and a half and have had no issues. I know the bulb will probably soon go out as its passed the 5000 hours of the bulb life but it will only be 100 to buy. By the way my screen was only 100 and projector a year and half ago like 900, 1000 total for a movie and surreal experience. Mind you a little afte 1080p tvs came out i paid like 3000 for my 50 inch lg smfh and now they are cheap like 1000 or less or more depending on what you want.
I suppose I'd get a projector, at least until VR lets you use it with everything.
