Well I always told myself that I would never start one of these threads (due to most things you can figure out by reading answers posted elsewhere), but here it goes. I visited one of the big box stores in town. They currently have an HD70, but it has not been clearance out yet. In talking with one the employees, it is a discontinued product there, and if I can believe they know what they are talking about, it should be clearance sometime soon. While I was browsing, I noticed a HC1500 that had an open box price of $60 less than I could find it anywhere else. From what I understand, the HC1500 is a better projector, but is it worth $250 more (if I can snag the HD70 at the clearance price)? Currently I'm using the IN72 with a 102" screen, and I sit around 13-14 feet away. The screen is a DIY made from the blackout cloth. My question is twofold, one, am I going to get a much better picture with either of those projectors than what I am currently using, and two, which is the better value? I really only use the machine for DVD's and gaming (currently an XBOX 360).
