I have tested out (most of) the presentation gear. He found where I had set the computer cable down, which I _really really really_ needed, because the video outs produce very fuzzy text. It was clearly not the projectors fault, because crappy for-web video on the flash card looked better. But with the DV out, life is good. Fortunately, he had the relevant extender cable, so I don't have to have the laptop right next to the projector.

The screen is great. I set the projector and screen up on the dining room table, and the screen is so good that even with the dining room light on (which is _between the projector and the screen_) you can still see what's on the screen fairly well. Quite amazing, really. Needless to say, I had the light off for the most part.

Haven't tested the Safcord yet (don't think you're supposed to use it on oriental carpet), but the gear looks good. Lots and _lots_ of fun. Should be good for watching movies, too; we popped in a DVD and it looks nice.
