Hey all. A few months back I was asking about making a walking dead illusion in my front yard and got some great suggestions. I just came back from Walmart and they have something called a ZOOMBOX. It's a DVD player/projector so you can project scenes onto your walls, ceilings, etc. It was normally $252.00 on sale for $99.00. I just wondered if any of you were familiar with it, what kind of job it does and if I should go to the bank, get some money and go pick one up. Any help is always appreciated.

That has possibilities. You could project a video of rising ghosts, zombies at play, etc onto a scrim wall. I wonder how large the projected area could get before you lose resolution, though.

Got a zoombox for only $139 at walmart....

Just pick one up with carrying case at walmart ($139).........very decent little unit.......room does need to be pitch black......and not bad even on a 84" screen..........but with the low resolution looks better at about 6' away.......will be great for projecting faces and various other video images on 3 D props as well......has all the AV hook ups..........just don't expect HD quality here.......it is a toy projector but well worth the money........we are quite please with it. They are hard to find right now........sold out at most places........and we had to hit a lot of Walmarts to find even one......it was a hot item for x-mas and I can see why.........teens love it !

I bought one of these at Christmas time, and it is one of the few things I have ever returned to the store. I absolutely hated it. I loved the concept, mind you, but the technology is just not 'there'.

You could NOT read the graphics unless the projector was close and you got like a 17" picture. And the room was VERY dark. So was this projector. There in lies the problem.

Bozz, I'm glad that you are happy with your unit. Maybe I just got a lemon. But I cannot recommend buying one based on my personal expirience. My Zoombox was straight up crap.

Sorry to hear that.......I've had 2 of them.....both excellent images when focus.......you do have to man. focus them for a few minutes....by turning the lens outside of the unit.....we watch a movie from 10' on a 74" screen and it was fine.......now video games don't transfer quite as clear.....tv images were perfect.....again not HD quality but good anuff for the $$....the reviews have been good.
