I am looking to set up my first projector for my apartment, please bare my ignorance. I understand that it also depends on my room, but I'm not looking to set up anything too complicated. I want something that displays as clear as an HDTV. Is there a cheaper alternative than the 5020ube? I have read numerous other threads, and seen people using projectors that cost way less. The photos of the display looks clear, but course I can't tell without seeing it live. Please help, thank you!

I would definitely get the JVC RS46 over the 5020 - it's about $2,600 or so brand new. It also will make a better transition to a home theater if you go that route.
But, the entry level DLP projectors produce one of the sharpest images out there for the money. The HD131X has had some reported focus issues, but that may have been a manufacturing issue that has been resolved. The BenQ has some minor focus issue reports as well.
Keep in mind, a 120" screen will be nine times the size of a 40" HDTV without any more resolution. So, it will never be as sharp from the same distance. But, it will still be very sharp looking.
for the best of middle of everything the HD 25e could be the unbeatable projector in its price range and class..
