    Because you could build it yourself for about one third of that price, the optics would be good quality and properly adjuststable, the lasers are much more likely to actually output the stated power, it won't fall to pieces and if a part does fail you won't have to pay to ship a 50lb package to China only to have the thing held ransom for the cost of a part that is excluded from the warranty because you have been 'a sirry iriot' for switching it on during a Wednesday evening.

    EDIT: 68lbs

    EDIT2: Really really shit optics setup - pieces of bent tin - shocking at that price

    Yes, this forum.

    Just go digging back through the forum and look for 'New projector build', New RGB build and similar.

    Unfortunately the search system isn't very good, but Google's is so those search terms will very likey bring you back here from a Google search.

    It does, I've just done exactly that, see here
