This projector was on WOOT yesterday for, I think, $1200. It does HD. Just keep an eye out and it will probably show up again real soon.
InFocus ScreenPlay 7210 HD DLP Projector

Hey, look, the Infocus Screenplay 7210 HD DLP Projector is back! Once again, it’s even cheaper than it was last time – despite the fact that it remains one of the best home-theater projectors on the market today. It’s like that thing Matthew McConaughey’s older-dude character said in Dazed & Confused about how he keeps getting older, but the chicks stay the same age. Only not sleazy, or potentially illegal, or…well, OK, it’s not that similar at all. We just like thinking about Dazed & Confused.
And we like watching it on the ever-cheaper Infocus Screenplay 7210 HD DLP Projector. If you’ve been here before, you’ve probably seen this 720p hi-def, high-end, high-value pitcher-shooter before. You’ve probably marveled at its 2800:1 contrast ratio and 1100 ANSI lumens. You’ve been titillated and intrigued by tales of its deeep DarkChip 3 blacks. (Yes, “deeep” with three e’s – it’s just that black.) You’ve assumed the phrase “Carl Zeiss optics” was a misprint. And your eyes have goggled at the ludicrously puny price.
And then you decided it was still too expensive.
So it’s back, cheaper than ever, now somewhere south of half its list price with all the same potent entertainment powers. It’s like that thing Matthew McConaughey’s older-dude – oh, wait, we said that already. Point is, we can’t be sure the Infocus 7210 will ever again be available at this redonkulous low price. Jump on it while you can. Act now – supplies are limited. Carpe projectorum. For all we know, this will be the last – the very last! – time we’ll be able to sell this eye-popping projector at this eye-popping price.
Unless there’s a next time.
