I finally decided to sell my plasma tv and get a projector, I was a little hesitant to spend even 1000$ though as Im a student still with not a lot of extra income. I went to my local best buy and they told me they had one projector (hd20) left. I was hoping they'd have a display to see, but they didn't. I explained I was iffy about spending 1000$ (500$ after selling my plasma) on a projector because I never had one and I never had see one in a home before. The associate looked and said this model was deleted and would be going "end of life" soon and they would ask the manager about a deal. They came back with a 649$ price quote
. So if any of you are still debating, you may want to ask at your local best buy on pricing.
Whats the opinion on the Optoma fixed screens? There are some on ebay for pretty cheap. Im wanting a 92" screen since my throw is only about 10.5 ft. Thanks for the links to the calibrating and the links to monoprice ceiling mounts, this thread has been FANTASTIC
