I need as much input as possible. I'm shopping for projectors and don't have
a clue what to look for. Decent Brand, Price Range etc.....  Thanks

In the $2,000 price range, there are several new high definition models
that seem to offer substantially improved performance and are highly
recommended by several reviewers.  These include the Panasonic A900, the
Sanyo Z4 (which I have), and the Epson (model 550?).  These are
three-chip LDC  units capable of 720p high fidelity (but not 1080p or
1080i, which will cost you upwards of $10,000).  Regarding the costs,
you should understand that the lamps used in these  units may burn out
in the first, second, or third year (no guarantee), and that
replacements cost around $350. In the future, look for three-chip 1080p
DLP units, maybe with LED lamps that don't burn out so often, although
it may be a long time before they are available at popular prices.

But perhaps you were planning to spend $20K or more? If so, you have
several choices.   Personally, I'm still impressed  with our Sanyo Z4,
particularly with HD  wide-screen program material received through a  
Dish satellite receiver from local stations, using an outside antenna.

Projectorcentral.com Do some reading. I have an Infocus 4805 and love
it. There's a great thread about it, two in fact, at avsforum.com .
Think I'll head down and fire up some Lord of the Rings on mine this
afternoon. Too cold out to do anything else! :-)

Generally the Panasonic LCD units have gotten the best reviews as far as
picture/price value.  They are native widescreen and take HDTV signals
beautifully.

They just introduced a new model so you might be able to find a good deal
on the previous model (AE700U) on eBay or something.

Re: Projectors - Help!!!


      Still too soon to buy one.  Should be several true 1080P
projectors coming this fall.  I've been waiting 6 years now so I
understand your desire.  Panasonic 1080P lcd should be a winner when it
hits.  If someone does a 1080P Lcos that may beat it.  The current dlps
are only half the pixel count so don't fall for the lies.  I'm tired of
waiting too.
