frostdotcom"power cord will not upgrade your projector."
Of course it will not change the projector at all that is obvious but it can result in substantially better perceived performance I would offer a recommendation for an improved cord but my cords are more expensive and the OP here is seeking a budget cord.
billandsol "clearthink, best cord I have tried is a Shunyata Alpha HC which I don't own. What was your experience regardless of price?"
The only budget priced power cord I can personally suggest or recommend is Aluminata which is about $3,500 USD although you can sometimes a get a little discount in my country but at this budget price level you are going to have to accept some limitations in actual performance.
While more expensive ones work better (tried it with other silver power cables when moving around some stuff) I use Cabledyne's Synergy for my broadcast monitor. 12 awg, 99.99% silver, solid core wiring, Teflon dielectric, good shielding, very flexible and not obtrusive, plugs have a good grip on them. They are $175.00 per meter, but often go on sale (were around $80 around Thanksgiving at one point, then later $90 for 1.5 meters).
Silver even when used with power cables for whatever reason brighten the image and help with detail/resolution. Seems absurd, but it does; why, I have no idea.You may want to check with companies that have a trial period though, don't spend the money if it doesn't make enough of a difference to you.
