Hey guys, We have a home theatre in our basement, and just recently the bulb burnt out. Considering the bulb costs more than the projector itself, we are looking to buy a new projector. Does anyone know the best projector to buy for a home theatre? It's black friday tomorrow too, so if anyone could find one on sale, that would be great. Thanks a lot guys

aha sorry i forgot the budget. Anywhere under 400 would be fantastic. Thanks!

For $400, all you can buy is a 4:3 aspect ratio business projector like Sam linked to. You need to get realistic and save more money.

Its not that I cannot afford anything over $400, I'm just trying to save money. With that, let me rephrase the question, What is the cheapest HD projector that you would recommend for a home theatre system? I apologize once again for being unspecific.

That would depend on ambient light(if any), screen size, where you have to mount it and the gain of the screen. You don't buy a projector like you do a TV... We need specifics to even give you an idea.

I don't recommend it in this day and age, but you can go with a 720p projector for about $500 to $600. The cheapest 1080p projector is about $900. Like Sam said, we need much more info. I would recommend you first decide between LCD and DLP.

The Optoma HD20 is a entry level DLP unit on sale right now for less than $800 on Amazon. That is about as low as I've seen full 1080p machines go new.
