DIY: Build your own LCD projector for dvd playback and gaming

  • Hi and a good day/evening to all,

    To those who own projectors or are into home theaters, I need your suggestions on whether to keep my Sony Bravia W800C 43" TV and get a projector probably next year or sell the TV and get the projector now which will also leave with an extra $174.61.

    I've found a projector that I really like and have no problems with it but I would like to hear suggestions because I might be missing out an idea.

    Pros:
    1. We can save so much space! (I don't like mounting my TV on the wall so it's currently placed on a table. I'll leave the table and this is where the projector will be throwing its light, of course above the table. I can also place small plants when the TV is gone.)
    2. We are renting so it'll be really easy to move around with it.
    3. We don't watch TV or local channels but if we do then it'll probably be just for news and the projector will be enough.
    4. Lesser maintenance. The TV and table gets dusty really fast so more work for us to maintain it.
    5. I love the cinema experience.

    Cons:
    I can't think of any so this is where your suggestions might fall into place.

    Thank you.
  • ^you already answered your question.
    Cons of using a pj is having a short bulb life.
    Other than that, looks like youre all set to get a pj
    If you can, get one thats using a led bulb

  • Is this better than DLP projectors?
    Nabasa ko kasi na ang DLP projectors ay better than LCD projectors?

  • may nakaka-alam ba kung san makakabili ng 4k 120hz 7inch lcd panel at controller? TIA
  • Meron po ba ditong pwedeng pagtanongan sa lcd controller board?
  • guys question lang. sinubukan ko kase palitan un LED Chip ko kaso ang problem kapag nakadikit na ung LED chip sa watercooled heatsink ko di nagpa-power ung LED Chip, pero pag nakahiwalay sya or wala syang contact sa heatsink, nagpo-power naman.

    any hints o kaya tips? TIA
  • ^ Try installing a thermal pad between the LED and the heatsink?
  • tried, gets too hot and doesnt transfer heat well

    ung unang build naka dikit ung LED chip sa heatsink at may coat lang ng thermal paste, sinubukan ko rin mag reapply ganun din nangyare, di mag power un LED chip.

    btw, tinest ko kung may current na dumadaan sa watercool block at meron akong nakukuhang continuity.

    Why not a large heatpipe-based CPU cooler like a Hyper 212 instead?


    If you're desperate, look for some beryllium oxide sheet. AFAIK it's the most thermally-conductive material that's also an electrical insulator. Don't try to grind it though, as the powder is carcinogenic. :O
  • hi guy!

    hope someone can help. Im planning to re-finish my projector screen. meron bang nagbebenta ng projector screen paint sa pinas?

    btw, im using a 100" motirized na screen, parang satin white yung finish nya. mejo madumi na eh, balak ko sana palitan ng mejo grayish para mas maganda kahit may konting ambient light

    salamat!

  • Are DIY projectors still relevant these days, or have they been eclipsed by readily-available LED projectors?
