OK all...I was, and if it didn't die, very happy with my Infocus IN76. That being said it can't be repaired unless I find a power supply pcb for it....sooooo time to shop...

I don't "need" a 1080p PJ, as I'm totally happy with 720p (tv content is in 720 and all the movies we watch are 720p or below)

My theater is 15'W x 25'L x 10'H (vaulted roof but 10' at the roof line) The majority of the screen wall is taken up by the screen/viewing area also...
The PJ will be used primarily for movies and Xbox360 gaming and on occasion TV. Light controlled environment. Rear Projected.

I'm thinking I can get away with spending $400-$800 just from some quick searches online....what do you all think...suggestions please

Current screen size and throw distance? Pictures of the room?

Current screen size is approx 165" diag for 16:9. my throw, I prefer the PJ to be more towards the back of the theater...but can be placed anywhere within 22'L of the rm

OK so I ended up buying the Viewsonic 8200Pro...I must say I'm EXTREMELY happy....for the price, I believe it cannot be beat...plus they have a rebate right not for a free 80"-100" Elite Screen with or w/o a universal PJ mount.....pay shipping of coarse (even if bought separate it's a deal, cheaper for shipping than buying)
