Hey all! So we're about to break ground on a new house that will include my very first media room. Plans are for a dark room, dark ceiling (but not black). I will have a couple of windows on a side wall because it will be used a lot for sports watching, but will have blackout shades.
Anyway, I'm doing my early research and was considering the Epson 6050 for the lumens but went into a retail store yesterday and they had a Sony VW295ES in one of their showrooms and it looked fantastic, even with the lights on and a ton of light flooding in from the rear of the showroom through large glass doors. Even my wife who was previously rolling her eyes about my theater room, is now excited after seeing it. He said they have a couple of these that were open box, either returns or used as a demo. Full 3 year warranty, etc. Price was a substantial savings vs retail.
Even with that good of a price, is it dumb to buy a projector that will literally sit in a box for probably 9-12 months before it's actually turned on? I imagine a lot of things can change in the projector world in that amount of time?
