video projector for $99 new

I was shopping today when I came across the Shift XL-90 video projector for $99. I did a little googling and came up empty. I do see some on ebay selling for more than what the local store is selling them for. Has anybody seen one of these in action? I assume they are crap but I'm curious to know just what they are good for.

It looks like the same unit. Think it is? How are they doing this?

It is likely the same Chinese import, rebranded.

Two "reviews" here say it stinks...

I saw elsewhere that it is not very bright. And resolution supposedly is 480x240.

480x240-- is that less than half the lines of an analog NTSC signal?

At $50 it is in the toy category and I would not expect much from it. I tried to think of a situation I could use it in but came up empty. I still want one of these though...

If it's not good enough resolution for porn, then why even bring it up?

I've had a PK10 for about 2 years now: [www.amazon.com] (first link I found...check around).

...with a battery pack and it works great. Perhaps worth checking into.
