I know this question is asked a lot, and for that I'm sorry, but I just wanted to get some advice before making a decision I may regret without some help.
This will be my first projector. I've wanted one for many years but it just hasn't worked out. I've been reading through the forums for a little over 3 months now just trying to soak up as much information as I can before making a purchase.
I'm planing on using our living room for the set up, it's 10.5' by a 21.5'.
There isn't much ambient light, some but it's through blinds and dark curtains. Walls are dark green as well. I would however, like a bright image just in case there is some extra light. My wife doesn't like total darkness like I do for movies
. I'll probably hang it from the my 8' ceiling. So placement isn't really an issue.
I would like to have a 100"+ screen that I'll build using Wilsonart laminate.
My budget is around $600-$900 which should get me a decent 720p projector.
Although, I know I could get a used one for cheaper, which would be nice to save some money.
Some that I've been looking at are; Screenplay 7205, Planar 7010 or 7060, there are some other entry level projectors that I've heard good things about as well but some aren't quite as bright as I would like.
Any suggestions would be great, although I do understand this question is a little redundant.
Also, if there is anyone who has a used 720p projector in good condition that would like to sell, please let me know.
Thank you so much,
