OK here's my situation, and I call on you merciful HTF Projector Gods to help me out! (The long story, skip this and go down before if you are in a hurry or want to get to the point!) I'm a young guy who doesn't have a bunch of money. I only got a 27" about 2.5/3 years ago or so. Ever since I've had a 27 inch tv, I've become increasingly bored of watching DVDs. They just don't have a huge impact on me, although I am a huge movie buff. The smallness of the screen when watching especially letterbox stuff becomes more and more noticeable as time goes on (I *love* widescreen/OAR, don't get me wrong). I'm sure LCD projectors aren't as good as others, maybe don't display blacks as well, I've heard that. That's OK for me. For now I just want big, I can get over stuff like that. Alrighty! I've decided I really want a projector, here's why: I live in an apartment, size is an issue. I just can't haul in a 55" television set or whatever, and plus when I move, that would just suck. My apartment isn't the world's largest, it's not tiny, but a big WS television would look out of place for sure. So portability and size are both big issues. Cost is another, and that leads me to this post... Like I said, I'm not Donald Trump. I will sacrifice quality for price, because there will be nothing unless there is a decent price. I'm talking $1000 here. What I'm thinking about is a used $1000 LCD projector (I have a computer for it with DVD-Drive + decoder). $1000 would be perfect, however I will be saving up for that and it may be even a year or more before I can get it. What I'm looking for is a nice big image for $1000 with passable quality. I'm thinking a 640x480 would be fine, I don't need HD so that would work for regular movies. I know this place is quality over price oriented, but I'm really on a budget here so $2000 would be impossible. $1200-*maybe*1500 might be doable, but really $1000 is it unless that's simply impossible. So what I'm interested in is: A) Can I get a decent(not very good) quality used LCD projector for $1000 or less? B) Where is the best place to look for such a device? Ebay? C) What brands/types are the best in that range/category? What specifically should I be searching for on Ebay or wherever? Thanks so much for any help. I'll probably get a cheap screen to go with it, but for now I want to focus on the LCD projector first.
