I came across this kit on ebay when I was searching for projectors. All the customers seem to be satisfied with the kit and its workings. I was wondering if it is just going to be a waste of time or not.

It sounds like the quality of the picture will really depend on the quality of the monitor source you use. But for 10 bucks, I think I may try this because then I could just use my laptop to watch TV. I would only need a VGA to S-VIDEO/Component wires.

Avoid. They don't tell you who manufactured the fresnel lens and what the focal length is. For $10 you probably getting a cheap non optical grade page magnifier. You also need two fresnel lenses to get decent results. All the information you get on the disk is free from LumenLab.

What is involved in a quality DIY projector can be found here:

These are quality fresnel lenses:

Mike, you are a hawk man. You are all over this forum. :). Thanks for the insight. I guess that saves me 10 bucks. Now I'll go to McDonald.:yay:
I'll be looking into this a lot more though. Unless I can get a projector for cheap.
