Y’know I really hate press releases like this… it’s like false advertising, at least it is in my opinion.. it says Sub-$1000 1080P projector… guess how much it is? $999… sure it’s below $1000, what? A whole dollar under $100! WOW what a deal….but seriously it’s not really, especially if you consider tax that we all must pay..
