Ok, I think my id is taking over... I really want to get this done so I can focus on other plans for this spring(back yard deck and patio, or new kitchen counters).
If I said screw the sales prices, is there any reason a Panasonic PT-AE7000 is a bad idea? It would take my full slosh fund and I really cannot swing any more for the PT-AE8000 or Epson 5020. Since the full budget would go to the PJ and a mount, I will have to build a screen. I have some longish 2x4 I can rip down this weekend to set up a temporary screen to test the equipment.
