I'm looking for a starter projector right at $1000-$1200. I don't want to deal with inexpensive DLP projectors with possible "rainbows" or eye fatigue. I'm looking at these two projectors: Proxima DP2000s Price: $1,049.00 Resolution SVGA (800 x 600) Brightness 1000 ANSI lumens Contrast Ratio 400:1 Uniformity -- No. of Colors 16.7 million Aspect Ratio(s) 4:3; 16:9 Display Tech. LCD; 0.55-inch Polysilicon TFT Compatibility Data Signals IBM PC or compatibles (VGA, SVGA, XGA, 1152, SXGA), Apple Macintosh. Video Signals NTSC, PAL, SECAM, EDTV, SDTV Video Resolution H Sync 15 - 100 kHz V Sync 43.5 - 130 Hz Dot Clock -- Connectivity Inputs Composite Video (Single RCA) x 1 S-Video (Mini DIN 4-pin (Y/C)) x 1 Computer, Analog RGB (Standard VGA, mini D-Sub 15-pin) x 1 PS/2 Mouse x 1 USB Mouse x 1 Computer Audio (Stereo mini jack) x 1 Outputs Computer, Analog RGB (Standard VGA, mini D-Sub 15-pin) x 1 Built-in Audio 1 Watt stereo Projection Lens Lens Zoom lens with manual focus and manual zoom adjust Image Size 40 - 200 inches diagonally Throw Distance Minimum 1.46 m - 8.85 m; throw ratio 1.8-2.15:1 Keystone Corr. Digital keystone correction ±15 degrees Lens Shift No Proj. Methods Front/rear, desktop/ceiling NEC VT460 Price: $1,199.00 Image Quality Resolution SVGA (800 x 600) Brightness 1500 ANSI lumens Contrast Ratio -- Uniformity -- No. of Colors 16.7 million Aspect Ratio(s) 4:3 Display Tech. 0.7" p-Si TFT active-matrix Compatibility Data Signals 800x600 pixels native, up to UXGA with Advanced AccuBlend Video Signals NTSC, NTSC4.43, PAL, PAL-60, PAL-N, PAL-M, SECAM, HDTV: 1080i, 1080i/50Hz, 720p, 576p, 480p, 480i/60Hz Video Resolution 1080i, 1080i/50Hz, 720p, 576p, 480p, 480i/60Hz H Sync 15.0 - 100.0kHz V Sync 50 - 120Hz Dot Clock -- Connectivity Inputs Component RGB (Shares mini D-Sub 15-pin) x 1 Composite Video (Single RCA) x 1 S-Video (Mini DIN 4-pin (Y/C)) x 1 Computer, Analog RGB (Standard VGA, mini D-Sub 15-pin) x 1 RS-232 (Serial) x 1 USB Mouse x 1 Video Audio (RCA x 2) x 2 Computer Audio (Stereo mini jack) x 1 Outputs Computer, Analog RGB (Standard VGA, mini D-Sub 15-pin) x 1 Computer Audio (Stereo mini jack) x 1 Built-in Audio 1.0W Mono Projection Lens Lens Manual zoom and focus Image Size 21 - 300 inches (0.5 - 7.6 m) diagonal Throw Distance 2.38 - 35.8 ft / 7.3 (Tele) - 10.9 m (Tele) Keystone Corr. +/- 30 degrees electronic (auto) Lens Shift -- Proj. Methods Desktop Front and Rear, Ceiling Front and Rear (1)Is it correct that if plug my DVD player up to the S-video input of either projector, the projector will line-double the 480i signal and display a 480p image? (2)It is true that betwen these two projectors, only the NEC will accept a 480p input from a DVD player via a component connection? (4)How is that connection made? (3)Do I need some sort of adapter? I don't see the standard component connection that is on the back of my HDTV, on the NEC. (4) Which of these projectors would produce the "better" image on a 7ft. wide screen? (5)Which of these projectors can be placed further back from a 7' screen? My room is approx. 20' long, and I'd like to place it as far back as possible. I picked a 7' screen because my couch is fixed as 12 ft. from where the screen will be, and 7'x1.75=12.25'. I'll listen to any more advice you want to give me short of convincing me to get a DLP projector thanks Jim
