If you don't mind someone else's opinion on the Pyle projector - stay away from it. It is nothing more than a toy. Don't be afraid of looking at used on craigslist, there are some great deals to be had. I just did a quick search on Adhuntr (search all of craigslist) There are three or 4 Optoma HD66s (3D, 720p, 2500 lumens, 4000:1) listed between $300-$400. The are also some Epson 705HDs (not 3D, but 720p, 2500 lumens,3000:1) in the same range. I bought my HD66 from a guy in Illinois, $350 shipped with a new lamp in it. I got my indoor projector (Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 720 (720p, 1600 lumens, 6000:1) for $250 out of Dallas. I just got a Panasonic PT-F300U from Ebay for $235 shipped. This is a 4000 lumen, 600:1 XGA (not 720p , but on the outdoor screen you can't tell) with 2200 hours on a 5000 hour bulb. This is a beast of an outdoor projector. It is bright, well built, has wireless networking capability. It's my new toy. Whatever you get, buy a quality brand name. The projector is the heart of the system, you don't want to skimp on it.
