I was dead set on getting the epson, until I saw the Mitsubishi 6800 refurbished for 850$! The projector is going in a dedicated theater room with total light control. I can place it anywhere. I would like to use a 1.1 gain 120-125" elite screen. My main concern is image quality. However I am on a budget so the 300 dollar difference makes the mits look very attractive. What is the better of the two? If I go with the mits would I be disappointed? I have never had a projector as this is my first. Is the epson worth the extra money? Anyhelp in making this descicion would be appreciated.

i am no pro at all but i really really like the mits quality i had the mits hc3800 and watched it everyday for movies and games

i should write that i have had the mits for like 3 years

the 6800 is a big upgrade over what i had and i couldnt see how it would b a bad deal
this is just my opinion

You have compared the 6800 and 3800 and feel it's it's that much better? Looks like the price difference is only $150 and I'm getting ready to make a purchase.

I haven't made a decision yet. I have several months before my theater room is complete and I am trying to find the best picture from a sub 1500 peojector I can.

If you pick up an Epson from them directly and use coupon code BTSNOW it's down to a $230 difference. Get the refurb from Epson with the coupon code and you're down to only a 50 buck difference. Just to make it harder. ^_^;
