Members will need enter the coupon code HT1100FORUM. The coupon section appears on the 2nd page of the checkout process so you must enter your billing & shipping info first. This coupon code will discount the projector by $250 (from $4195 to $3945).

In addition NEC has a mail in rebate of $150 droping the final price down to $3,795.

Here is a great review of this project at Projector Central.

There will be a short wait for these as they are not in stock but this special pricing is good this coming Friday the 30th.

These prices are for new units and not factory refurbs. TV Authority is also an authorized dealer of NEC products.

Sounds like a good buy but I only have enough money for one good TV set. Do people use the above projector for DVDs/HDTV only, and how do those compare to a 50" DLP or Plasma (which is about 3K instead).

Do people use the above projector for DVDs/HDTV only

Oh no, people use projectors like that for the same things you'd use a Plasma for. Standard Def TV, console games, computer display, VHS, and DVD's and HDTV. Of course sources like SDTV and VHS don't look too great on a huge screen, but that isn't the fault of the display type.

The quality of the image on the projector mentioned will look just as good as a Plasma if you take into account the size of the image. In other words you could project a 50" image with the projector (but who would want to?Posted Image) and it would look as good or possibly better than the Plasma. As you increase the size of the projected image, artifacts in the source will become more visible (with a constant seating distance), and screendoor will become visible at a certain point, but it you keep the viewing distance in the proper range, that won't be a problem. For instance if you sit 13' from a 96" 16x9 screen with the HT1100, it'll look fantastic. You would have to sit about 6.5' from the 50" Plasma to get the same sense of immersion.

One of the main differences in the two types of systems, is that a front projection system needs to have a fair amount of light control to give you a balanced image with good black levels. So in an "everyday family room" type installation where some family members want to watch TV while others read, play board games, etc., a Plasma might be the best choice. But for a more dedicated theater environment (or at least a family room where lights are controlled while viewing), it's hard to beat a projector.
