Ok the majority of the threads i have seen are really really outdated. I noticed one a few down for projector under 700. I am really looking to know which are the better brands. What should i be looking for? My price range would be about the same 700 but if it is a significant difference then i could spend up to 1500 on one (with a screen and mount). Do i need a screen? I do have some ambient lighting in the room that projects onto the wall that i would be mounting on. I am always trying to find a good deal like off of slickdeals or something. So by any means if there is one that is an excellent deal let me know. Thanks so much!

We would need to know a lot more about the room you want to use. The first is to solve the ambient light problem because projectors can't deal with any light hitting the screen.

Smart enough to know better, to old to care

Well it would be in the living room. It has 2 windows that i have black out curtains on, A small window behind in the kitchen area which has a blackout curtain. Then the sliding glass door to the patio which doesn't hit on the wall.

Any of the entry level 1080p projectors are what to look at. Optoma HD131, HD25, HD25lv the BenQ 1070 or for LCD tech the Epson 2030. You will need to do a lot more research read, read and read more through these threads to learn what you can about projectors. We can't explain everything to newcomers in just one post.

Also, you have to consider that you will be spending at least 150 bucks on the screen and projector mount.

 

I paid for peripherals (screen, longer cables, mount, simple HDMI switch, no 3D stuff though) another 250USD if not more (didnt really keep count) plus shipping costs.
