    After many attempts to convince my dad to let us build a home theater, i have been sucessful. We are moving into a new house, and supposedly there is plenty of space in the basement to build a HT. I have talked him into about a $12,000 budget, of which I want to spend around 4-5 on a projector. I was thinking an infocus screenplay 7200 or the BenQ pe7800, but I would like to know what you guys think is the best projector at around 4-5 thousand.

    Thanks for the help,
    Peter Keeling

    For DLP, the Benq 8700 is a favorite - very popular recently. I also hear very good things about the Epson 500 and the Yamaha LPX-510, both of which are considered the best LCD projectors. I'm not sure if the latter two are in the $4-5K range though.

    I have a Benq 8700 myself...I love it! All I need is a hushbox and it'll be perfect...well, perfect for the price anyways. [​IMG]
