Hey thanks a lot for the reply! I actually ended up getting the Benq 770st. I am still looking into a projector for the bedroom. Leaning towards the 550 cause when I did use it I loved it. I really like the Idea of LED. Reason I went with the benq for the living room is well, the specs. bulb replacements if going generic seem resaonable priced and I dont plan on this bulb dying out or at least a year. All in all, very happy with the benq, have it ceiling mounted, with a 120" pull down. Beautiful picture. Never had a chance to compare it to the 550 against a screen as I returned the 550 in order to get a refund for the benq. What do you think about a completely dark room (bedroom, only has one window) for watching movies at night against a painted wall. slight sheen on white paint give a good enough gain for an even cheaper LED projector? trying to keep it cheap, not looking for quality. I suppose my question is, in a completely dark room will a cheap $300 LED projector be decent quality or am I better off saving my pennies for something else? I would go with another DLP but, id rather only have to change one bulb a year rather than two. again thanks a lot for the reply, very informative and I appreciate it!
