    I'm __slowly__ finishing my remodel of my basement into an HT.

    I've decided that a front projection display is the way to go because I can't afford plasma and don't like the "altar to the TV gods" look of a huge CRT.

    Any thouhts / comments on this projector? It's the front runner in my dollars / peformance analysis right now.

    How much can you get it for? Based on the MRSP, there are better projectors for the money. For instance...

    - Panasonic L300U
    - Sanyo Z1
    - Sony HS10
    - Sanyo 60HT
    - Boxlite 13HD

    The Sharp does has a fairly low ontrast ratio of 450:1. Any of the above projectors will yield a much better image, some of which even have wide panels (great for widescreen viewing).

    Take a read through this thread in the FAQ area... Front Projection - How do I select one for my needs?

    I actually just bought one for $1,000. At that price it looked a bunch better than the InFocus X1 so I jumped on it.
    Hope it wasn't a mistake.
