I have had an LT150 for almost 1 month however it is still returnable. I want to know whether there is another projector I should audition?


It would have to be comparable quality wise and be around the same price (I paid $2400 for my lt150)


Any help would be appreciated.


thank you again.


PS, I really like the Lt150 despite its few flaws. I just want to maximize my investment.

Try XGA LCD like the NEC LT154 or Sanyo XW-15 (800-900 lumens) for around $2200.

If you don't care about HDTV, you could buy an LT85 (SVGA equivalent of LT150). I got mine through a recent Dell 20% deal for about $1550 delivered. Aside from the LT150, Dell "mistake", I think that the LT85 may actually be the best bang-for-the-buck deal.

I've messed around with the LT155 which is the LT154 with an MLA.


I think the LT150 is much better than it. The only reason I would get the LT154 is if you were sensitive to the LT150's rainbows.

I really like my LCD XGA Sanyo XW15:

http://www.projectorcentral.com/proj...m?part_id=1200



PROS: no rainbows, quiet fan, 5 lbs, zoom lens, component in, decent scaler, cheap (~$2000 if negotiated well), nice warranty, I have 0 (zero) dead pixels with ~100 hrs, very nice remote, color tuneablility (though I just rented a Video Essentials HT calibration DVD from Hollywood videos and all I felt I had to adjust from delivered settings was to lower the contrast, sharpness, and red levels a couple/three clicks (on a 1-64 scale with 32 being as delivered). The colors are gorgeous and with a progressive DVD player (the Pannasonic RP56 @ ~$200 is nice) the images are quite stunning.

BTW: Just got my free DVD from www.BMWfilms.com with all the short movies and it is really neat. Email them for a free copy.


CONs:relatively low lumens (~800, low compared to much more expensive projs) and merely acceptable contrast and blacks (compared to DLP).


Try one out if you can - the noise issue may mean a lot to you.


good luck
