I was in the same boat. I had $5k to spend tho. So I was going to buy a Mit 84in DLP HDTV. Then, the guy at best buy showed me a Mit projector and it looked amazing. It's just different looking at a movie through glass and looking at it on a screen. It's just more crisp, like how a movie is supposed to be seen. I got a 1080p projector, receiver, sound system, 6 leather theater seats, and a 120in screen for what I was going to pay for that tv. Now, I'm a HT addict. That was 2.5yrs ago and I have had about 10 different projectors. I usually get one used for cheap, and sell it to one of my friends. Whenever someone comes over, they have to have one. I keep at least 3, because I give them away or sell them.
I have a nice 75in Carada screen, which I got for $25, in my room and a 120in in my living room. I use my $500 short throw Optoma GT720 in my room and outside on my 220in screen. I use my $400 Acer H5360 in my living room on my 120 HP screen for 3D games, sports, PC, and HDTV. My new JVC RS55 is going to be for blu rays, Miami Heat games, and NFL games. No TVs in my place anymore.
