With a resolution of 480x320, you'll be enjoyed sub-SD quality blown up to 70"...
You're better of with probably anything else you can find.

I did have my hands on one before, it was rather loud and didn't look too good.

The one you've linked there is 480x320 resolution.  You're not going to have much fun watching something on that.

Not to mention "Brightness: 100 lumens"

I view 3,000 as a minimum, so 100 is horribly low.

3000 might be good for a data projector but is way brighter then most HT projectors. 1800 is a bright HT projector.

would a higher lumens give the ability of greater contrast naturally? (and would the reverse be true?)
