    Default LED Video Projectors

    Any info on LED video projectors. 5000 lumen units can be had for around $300.
    They appear to have long light life and good lumen ratings.
    The contrast ratio is not that good, as "bulb" type projectors, unless used in near total darkness.
    Does 5000 LED lumens match up to 5000 "bulb" lumens.

    Are they worth the investment?

    Also beware that China apparently has their own scale of measuring lumens and it doesn't coincide with accepted U.S. standards. You might order something that's advertised as 7000 lumens and what you'll get is about one-tenth that, at best.

    TRUTH! Prime example is LED Flashlights. China sellers market "1000 lumen LED" flashlights...however light output is 100 - 200 actual lumens. My rule of thumb when looking at chinese lights is to lose the last zero. they sell 1000, I expect 100...that way IF it is brighter I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Thanks - the LED projector idea is out.

    What is the minimum protector resolution would you suggest for home video projection / mapping?
