Sports nuts need a bright, high-def projector that can capture every minute of the game. With a 120Hz refresh rate, the 1800-lumen LG CF181D handles fast-motion scenes, like a receiver sprinting down the sideline or a game-changing interception, with ease. Sports nuts will have such a great view of the game; they’ll think they’re there.
True film buffs want a projector that delivers the most cinema-like viewing experience. With advanced technology and an incredible contrast ratio of 200,000:1, the 1600-lumen Epson HC 8700 UB brings the movie theater to the living room. The projector’s 1080p D7 chip, C2FineTM technology and 3LCD display provides deep, rich blacks and exceptionally sharp details. The film buff in your life will appreciate the Epson’s anamorphic (stretch) mode, which displays 2.40:1 cinemascope content in its original format and eliminates the annoying black bars around widescreen movies. The feature-rich Epson HC 8700 UB raises the bar for home theater entertainment.

Gamer extraordinaires have the hottest games, the newest consoles and the latest cheats. But what’s the point of all that if they’re playing on a dinky 32″ TV? For total immersion, gamers need a bright larger-than-life display, like the crystal clear 120″ image provided by the 2000-lumen Hitachi CP-DW10N. The 8-lb short-throw CP-DW10N features built-in 10W speakers and a full host of inputs, making it the perfect portable all-in-one gaming projector.
Those unsightly black cables running from the cable box to the projector in the next room are a serious design no-no. Clean it up with OwLink’s HD Fiber Optic Connectivity System. The kit includes a crystal clear “fishing line” multimode fiber optical cable that can transmit uncompressed digital video and audio up to 1,000 feet. Say goodbye to that cable nest!

Your favorite gadget guru will love how this projector is rechargeable, fits in a pocket and can make a ‘scene’ anywhere.
