If you're gaming, make sure to get one with low lag.

DLP might be the way to go but you'll have to see if you're RBE(rainbow effect) sensitive.

Even if they change it to $3, I'm not complaining considering we paid that much or more for VHS/DVD rentals from rental stores.

About how the wife and I felt after watching it this weekend. Very slow paced. We were hanging on hoping for redemption but the movie ended like a silent fart that lingered.

You can opt to just get the DSL for $50 a month.
