I have a 50" Samsung DLP that refuses to stay powered on for more than 10 minutes at time now, despite a new bulb. I've been debating what to do. I'd kind of like to go for a projector, but I dunno. I don't want to spend a lot, but I see no reason to do anything less than 1080P. I may not have enough space for it though. How far does a projector need to be from the screen and at what angle (straight? above?)? Ceiling mount isn't likely. I play a lot of video games as well as watching DVD and BD. Is there any reason not to use a projector for gaming? I've been playing games on my 24" LCD lately. I know my DLP had a "game mode." Are any of these HDTVs really responsive enough for gaming? Do projectors go on sale at all for xmas time? I'll probably consider my options on black friday if I'm still undecided.
