[Amazon.ca] LED HDMI Video Projector $40 (native 480p)
- Deal Link:
- Amazon Canada
Just sharing this cheapo projector (posted about it on another thread but it deserves a thread on its own) for two reasons:
- Price is good for what it does ($40 for a toy HDMI projector with modest brightness and DVD quality image). MSRP used to be $130 with sale around the $100, so it's being cleared as of earlier today for $40. Aside from nonserious viewing, partying and lightweight video gaming check @redkulat Halloween use case here.
- As a reference line for people posting overpriced toy projectors thinking it's a good deal just because the seller decided to reduce an insane MSRP markup to lower insane sale markup.
Deals on these projectors can only be had below the following thresholds:
$50 for native 480p
$100 for native 720p
$150 for native 1080p
Deals can only be had when FBA sellers are forced to clear out amazon warehouses inventory (they are still making money, but at least reasonable enough for what they are selling) or when stars align and they start a lightning deal with a coupon still active.
The seller seems honest enough not to post fake brightness numbers but like most similar projectors it's probably something between 40 and 60 real lumens (and between 2000 and 2600 advertised fake lumens).
This is the same projector as the ABOX T22 that FBA scammers are charging $109 for it (with 4/5 rating over 750 reviews of people who mostly don't know any better or being compensated for these reviews). The ABOX never went below $90 since it was first available on amazon more than 2 years ago (the most recent review was just 2 days ago).
