Epson HC2000 for $549 at Amazon

Lowest price I've seen on the Epson HC2000. I've had one for about 16 months and 2600 hours. Two year warranty and $99 lamp replacement cost makes it a great starter projector. :)

I have been tempted to get the P363 as rears as well, but really the P163s and even the P153s provide all the sound you will need... but the P363s do look better and don't require stands/mounts. On...
