I'm opposed to most used PJs (you just have no idea how much wear and tear there is) and there isn't much around here locally anyways. So now I'm looking for 720P PJs. I know there are quite a few of them in the 300-400 range and wanted to know what I should be looking at as I have no experience with this part of the PJ market.
I would convince him to finish a wall smooth and paint it white, then add the money he was going to spend on a screen to the projector budget. If there was no budget for a screen, I'd wash my hands of the matter. He'll just end up blaming you for any disappointment he feels with the final result, and if his budget is unreasonable he WILL be disappointed with the result.
