I am currently in the process of researching my next television. I live in canada and all the products and prices mentioned below will reflect that.
I have been pondering whether a projector or a LCD would be a better fit? I will be setting up a Home Theatre in my basement, and thus i have complete control of lighting. From very dark to quite bright.
I have a budged of $1,500.00 maximum for my television, however i would like to spend no more than $1,200.00 on a tv, taxes in.
For LCD I am considering the Acer 37" either 1080p if i can find a good deal, or just regular HD, and the viewsonic 37" both around $1,000.00 CDN.
For a projector i am considering the Optoma HD70 as it has the required connections (HDMI, VGA, Component) (again around $1,000.00 CDN.)
What are some of the pro's / con's / things i should be aware of?
For instance, if i buy a projector and ceiling mount it, i will then (i suspect) have to buy at least 20' cables to be able to position my components near my screen?
What are some other things to be wary of?
Thanks for your time, I appreciate it!
