I'm planning on buying a projector for my home theater for use with DVDs, XBOX 360 and PS2.
I'm moving to HK on Monday, so in the meantime I've been browsing ebay.com.hk for market examples. It seems that the ebay market is flooded with one particular model, priced between HK$3,700-HK$4,500. Here's a link for reference:
eBay.com.hk : HD LCD build in Digital TV Projector DVB-T HDMI BHD (item 180382862815 end time Jul-25-09 02:11:13)
I'm wondering if any of you could give me some buying advice by answering some of my questions and/or chiming in with other relevant info:
1) Does this ebay item look like a low quality albeit inexpensive option? Why? Why not?
2) Although I'm new to projectors, HK$3,700-HK$4,500 seems quite low, almost too low. I'm looking for a projector of high enough quality to function trouble-free for at least 3 years, perhaps panasonic, sony, etc. That said, what price range should I be looking at?
3) From my visits to HK I've noticed abundant electronics shops in Mong Kok. Am I correct to guess that this is the place to go for the best balance of quality, service and price?
4) Could any of you suggest some specific sellers?
Many thanks for any and all help!
