Oh ok. Why don't they care about margins, how do they make money? Would there any markup on screens?

Ah, fair enough. Learn something new every day, didn't know about that rule.

So do you know if employees get discounts on items available on bestbuy.com or that they have to special order?

Do Best Buy or other retail employees get decent discounts on projectors?

What's the markup like on projectors, would an employee discount be significant?

I heard Best Buy can special order many items. Do employees get a discount on items that are not carried in store...

Gotcha. I should mention this is a pull-down screen going in FRONT of my entertainment center, wouldn't the black bars then be negligible w a 2.35 screen in this case as the screen is not on a wall?

Sorry I just wasn't understanding the way it was being explained. The illustration he drew didn't have black bars on one of them. So you're saying I should get the 16:9 for the menus?

I don't have it set up, it's something I only temporarily setup once in a while to watch movies.

By what you're saying shouldn't I be using a 2.35 screen?

How much are my speakers worth?

I am helping my brother sell his Klipsch KLF-10 floor standing speakers. I did a search on eBay but not much luck.

Btw, I ONLY watch movies on my projector, NO TV or video games. I was told most BluRay movies are 2.35:1. Shouldn't I then be buying a 2.35:1 screen?

So when I'm shooting on my wall it's displaying it at 2.35:1? Does that defeat the purpose of buying a 16:9 screen?

I have a BenQ 1070. The movie is King Kong. It says it is 2.35:1. Should I be customizing my setup to fit this ratio or is it just as good at 16:9?

Edit: I use the projector exclusively for...
