Hello guys, new here. I'm no expert when it comes to either projectors or home theaters so I'm looking for a nice projector to cover my needs. For what I understand is that LED projectors are better than bulbs, (So I guess) also, some high definition projectors, 1080p come in DLP. Since I am no expert on this matter, I've heard that 720P is just as good as 1080p, however, I may be wrong. I need to cover a fairly bright room, I have over 10 skylights, cathedral style ceilings, distance from wall to wall that I need this projector to work is at 20ft distance, where the projector would be installed and the projector screen on the other end which is a total of 20 feet. My idea is to install a remote electric powered projector screen in my living room. I'm an avid MMA/UCF/Sports and movie addict, instead of purchasing a 80 inch screen tv for almost 5k, give or take, I have to look at other options.
Also, I would like to take this projector out in the yard for movies/sports as well and possibly do minor presentations. So my price range is under $1000 for this projector, but I would like to remain in the mid price range of 1k, maybe $500, etc or so. I know that I maybe asking for too much but thats why I came here to get some suggestions/guidance. So I'm looking for the best bang for thew buck~ Again, thank you all in advance for your help~
If you are determined to walk down that road, then this is the list of 1080p projectors that use traditional lamps which can hit 120" from 20' lens to screen:
That list of TWO projectors, is it. Neither are 3D, neither are a new design, both are LCD models.
Take the budget up to $3,000 on the projector and you get these as options:
The BenQ W7500 is a brand new DLP model which is worth consideration.
Of course, if you don't intend to control the light, then you will get absolutely lousy quality.
Once again, I would recommend a TV based upon your room description, conditions, and viewing habits.
