Depends on your requirements.


Most "data" uses are not very exacting: put a picture on the wall so that we can read it, don't worry very much about color, contrast, etc. Brightness is the only criterion.


I use my machine (an old Infocus LP400) for HT in my living room and also for business presentations. When I use it for HT, I am very thoughtful about how it is set up and adjusted.


When I go to an office to set up for business, I generally don't have the luxury of even a screen onto which to project it. I was in the office of a major publisher in NYC last week, and projected onto a brownish-colored wall; the folks said, "We always use it, its fine."


I would suggest that you buy for HT use and then argue that it will meet your data needs as well.

Here is the link to the Dell projector. Dell 3200 MP link


Sorry, but how good is this projector really? Could I use a 120 inch screen and get a decent quality HD image? I am really green on this subject and I have a pretty new HD monitor right now, but like a lot of other people I am wishing I had gone bigger. I end up sitting about 4 feet from my TV right now just so I can wonder at the detail that HD offers. Any advice would be great. The two grand sounds about right. Can anyone offer up a comparably priced projector that would outperform this one?


TIA

The Dell Projector does not have a standard DVI input, it has a P&D input, also called a M1-DA for your analog/digital/component/HDTV signal. The projector does come with cables so that if you want to this output directly to component or VGA you can. I have this projector and it is very nice for both DVD and HD quality. The only problem I have with it now is wanting dual imputs through the M1-DA, see the following posts:
