[Amazon.ca] VANKYO Performance V600 Native 1080P, 6000 LUX 300" Movie Projector- Lowest Price ever- $243.47

I bought this projector two months back for $280 and it has been a pleasure to watch movies in native 1080 P on a 120" screen.
This is a great price for anyone looking for a native 1080P projector at an affordable price.

I have this...its a solid 'temporary' projector meaning I put it away when not in use. I suggest others do the same because these ones allow dust to easily collect.

I bring it out usually in the summer time and play music videos or movies.





Made a vid when I got it testing the quality and native sound:

My party setup during the summer. i used heavy duty velcro to stick the projector to the fence:

Projector in action. I had the sound connected via bluetooth to a wireless amp to the outdoor speakers:

Seems way too good to be true. What's the catch? 100 hour lamp life?

I believe these use the LED bulbs which means tens of thousands of hours of life... but NOT replaceable. It's far more likely that the unit will break down or technology obsolete before the lamp gives.

The catch is that the actual brightness / contrast are likely no where near what is claimed. Note first off that they claim brightness in LUX rather than the industry standard Lumens. LUX is brightness per square meter, rather than brightness of the bulb. This is an easy number to manipulate because the distance from the projector to the surface changes how much light you get per sq meter, thus changing the "LUX" value.

If you are hoping to project > 100" or view in ambient lighting it's probably going to be a bad experience. Also black levels / etc are going to be quite poor, think bottom entry level Epson 3LCD, but possibly even worse.

That said... This is the one "chinese" projector that seems to get shat on the least in the tech forums... a decent option for those on a tight budget... as long as they understand what they are buying and don't think they are getting an Optoma 143x level experience for 1/2 the price.

Thanks OP. Does anyone know if the Vankyo V630 is worth the extra $50 premium?

It's an okay projector. I was disappointed with it considering all the "rave" reviews on Amazon.

I find the colours are washed out.

For that price it's okay. If you're looking for something with vibrant colours and a long-term investment, I would consider something else.

i have this, ordered when it was 150 - 20 coupon, okay for the price. just for fun when the kids watch.

any 1080p projector that can correct angle? not sure what the technical term is.
I put my projector at an angle, so the screen isn't fully flat

I find with the v630, colours aren't that bad if you lower the red and up the green.

Most projectors have keystoning and you can adjust for the angle.

keystone! yes, but most of them have vertical keystone, i need horizontal keystone - putting it on a shelf that's not directly center of the screen

I doubt any of the cheap Chinese projectors will have horizontal correction, maybe someone can suggest an affordable brand name that does.

The v630 has horizontal and vertical keystoning, so maybe the v600 does too.

Just mentioning again, the v630 is loud.

I just got an Epson 1060 which has vertical and horizontal - also has a short throw distance and zoom. I'm projecting 108" from 9ft away.

I experimented with these Chinese projectors and while they are certainly bright thanks to the LED's, its almost impossible to get something acceptable in terms of colour reproduction.... Great for games/cartoons, but horrible on live action.

I got this projector for a friend and it was CRAP! Couldn't even watch a hockey game on it. The light is measured in LUX couldn't figure out how many lumens to compare. Returned it after a day and got the refurbished Epson directly from Epson for just a bit more and the quality was night and day.
