OK, here is the deal. I am *NOT* a big TV geek. I am not going to spend $40k building a home theater. I watch an average of 3 - 4 hours a week and 2 DVDs a week.

I have a room in the basement I can make into my tv room. I want to see a big picture and I am not picky about the image being perfect. I can handle screendoor effect and other minor issues. I just want a 60"+ screen to look at.

What is the least expensive way to get a progressive DVD image projected to a nice size screen? Should I even consider front projection?

Thanks for your input.

I have tasted front pj. I will never go back to anything less. As far as PJ is concern AE100 seems to be the least money for a great image IMHO. DIY mount and screen can be done for less than 30 dollars.

The AE100 is what everyone is raving about currently...

Davis units are dirt cheap (one was posted recently at 600 USD) and have a great image when paired with a HTPC or scaler...

LT150 is also popular but getting priceyer than the 1k - 1.5k mark...
