There is a guy locally selling a VW50 for about $400 with a fairly new bulb. MOST of my watching is 2d, sports, and playing movies/video games on my PS3. Should I be looking at something newer? Or would this fit the bill? Oh, 92" screen.

Find out how many total hours on the projector. If its over say 3000 hours the blue LCD panel is starting to wear out .

Right on the Border I think. If it were ME considering you plan on using it for gaming I would look into the newer LED projectors. They will work fine for a 92 inch screen. I have a Pa70 I got at Frys onsale for 499.00 delivered and it looks fine> I don't use it as much as I thought I would but for gaming or everyday use its perfect and you don't worry about a lamp failing and costing you a couple of hundred bucks to replace it. The same applies to the epson as far as lamps go. Bohanna

It's not an lcd, and it's light years better than a cheap ultraportable.

its Still LCD technology and the Blue screen will eventually fail. They say they use an "inorganic alignment layer" but the Panels are still ORGANIC. The picture will be better than the LGPA70 as long as the panel lasts but if the guy plans on using it for any length of time he could be buying a headache!
