So I picked up a Lightware VP800+ this weekend. 800x600 resolution at 350lumens might not be anything to write home about but I can't wait to get it setup and running. Anyone else have experience with this projector (or any for that matter) in home use?

RCA video in, Svideo in, plus the older apple svga in... hopefully itll come in handy..

It really isnt that big, and I doubt itll be all that impressive.. but hell, considering the price.. it could be fun.

That's friggen great!

I've borrowed one from work (not that model) but hooked it up to my computer and run dvd's through it and projected it on a wall - absolutely the way to go - enjoy!

One night I did see someone in town have a World Series party with a projector, using the house next door as the screen - it was like a outdoor drive in. When the outfielders were shown they were actually bigger than life size - the screen must have been 40'+ diagonal.
