woot Wrote:XYZZY

You are at Woot.com. Hovering in front of you is a button labeled ├ó┬Ç┬£I Want One!├ó┬Ç┬Ø
Today’s product is a InFocus IN76 HD Projector.

?> LOOK PROJECTOR

The InFocus IN76 HD Projector is designed to give a theater-style image at home. It uses Pixelworks DNX video-processing technology to deliver high-definition images through the use of multiple enhancement techniques. It has a removable swivel base and could also attach to the ceiling. It is a refurbished model, but it is perfectly fine.
There is an orc behind you.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!

?>ATTACK ORC

├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
You punch the orc with your fists.
The orc says ├ó┬Ç┬£I was only here to look at the 720p DarkChip2 DLP technology! It makes deeper darks and has a 3000:1 contrast ratio with a native 1280├â┬ù720 16:9 wide-screen resolution! But now we must fight! Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø

?>EQUIP MAGIC SWORD

You have your magic sword. It glows magically, but is still not as bright as the 1000 lumens of the InFocus IN76 HD Projector.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc hits you for 10 hit points.

?>ATTACK ORC WITH MAGIC SWORD

You attack the orc with your magic sword. You hit for 7 hit points.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc says ├ó┬Ç┬£After I finish you I will enjoy the two brightness modes on the InFocus IN76 HD Projector! High or Whisper!├ó┬Ç┬Ø
The orc hits you for 19 hit points.

?>HEAL

You focus on the InFocus IN76 HD Projector, considering how it can accept DVI, M1, HDMI, RCA Component, VESA (HD15) or S-Video as well as work with Standard, Enhanced or Hi-Def TV and a Computer. You feel calm and healthy.
You heal for 20 hit points.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc misses you.

?>GET REMOTE

You have the InFocus IN76 HD Projector’s included remote.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc hits you for 3 hit points.

?>ATTACK ORC WITH MAGIC SWORD

You attack the orc with your magic sword. You hit the orc for 35 hit points.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The ├ó┬Ç┬£I Want One!├ó┬Ç┬Ø button is beginning to shake and wiggle.

?>GET INFOCUS IN76 HD PROJECTOR

Your secure connection to Woot.com means the orc cannot see your credit card number. You buy the InFocus IN76 HD Projector.
├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!

?>ALLOW FOR SHIPPING

├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc hits you for 3 hit points.

?>ALLOW FOR SHIPPING

├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc hits you for 1 hit points.

?>ALLOW FOR SHIPPING

├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø yells the orc!
The orc hits you for 1 hit points.
The orc is bored! The orc leaves.

?>ALLOW FOR SHIPPING

Your InFocus IN76 HD Projector has arrived. There is a remote in the box.
In the distance you hear an orc yell ├ó┬Ç┬£Graaa!├ó┬Ç┬Ø

?>USE REMOTE ON INFOCUS IN76 HD PROJECTOR

I don’t know how to do that.

?>Q

Are you sure you want to quit (Y/N?)

?>Y

Damn this goes for RRP of 5K here in Aus. Shame about the 110V issue. DO they have selectable voltages or oare they universal?

The Aus dollar is close to .9US, not far of parity so that makes it a 1K projector - save 4K. Cant beat that

Dang, even I'M tempted by this....and there's literally not enough room in our rental even for its box. :-( Our eventual downstairs theater is sadly months if not years away...I'm hoping that by then, this will be a normal price (and woot's will be $300!)

well since that is what I got the IN72 for from woot a couple of months ago (well, $500 - $200 MiR), you may very well have a good point... projectors only seem to be getting cheaper every couple of months, so if you don't need it now, it is better to wait....
and possibly attack an orc...
I am not clear on what orcs have to do with projectors, but hey, what do I know?
