You can't compare a 3k projector with a $4k RPTV.
I recently paid $211 for my front projector CRT. The picture on my Barco Data 701S is better, IMHO, than any RPTV I have seen. (For example, better than the $5,000 Pioneer Elite).
But hey, now I have the money to buy a screen...
Can I get one for $30? I'm on a budget! I need to build my $10,000 home theater for less than $1,000!
Ha Ha Ha
Just kidding....... about some things. But my 5 year old Barco did cost more than $10,000 a few years ago. And the picture is phenomenal!
