First, I'm new to the home theater scenario, and know almost nothing about projectors, HD, blueray... But I thought it was time to take the plunge.
After doing some research and reading volumes worth of reviews, the Planar P7060 for about $820 delivered (after MSLive rewards) seemed like a safe choice.
I have a cheaply built PC I converted for a HTPC with an AMD 2350 X2/2GB on a $55 Gigabyte board with built in DVI out.
I DL'd some blueray vids, and played them on...
