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 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)
