    $4000 Budget on new projector please help!

    To keep a happy home (or happy wife), I went ahead and bought the Panny 4000. I am totally satisfied with the purchase, going from the Panny 500 to the 4000 was like going from DVD to Blu-ray. It's freaking awesome I put Avatar in and almost lost it. I honestly don't see how spending $2000 more...

    $4000 Budget on new projector please help!

    So do you fellas think the JVC X3 will look significantly better than the Panny 4000? (is that a silly question? lol) By the numbers the Panny and Epson 9500 are better in terms of black level. And I'm all about black level, when I first joined this forum many years ago I was indoctrinated with...

    $4000 Budget on new projector please help!

    I did some research on this website and procetorcentral, etc, and found that there are a bunch of different things going on with 3D projectors. I was wondering what is the difference between the JVC x3 and RS40? They seem to be the same thing, but they are from two different series. I also...

    I haven't been on here in a couple years, and the site is sooo different. I'm looking for the member gallery myself. Does it not exist anymore?

    Lets talk Gears Of War

    It is by far the best game on the 360, and by far the best game graphically ever. I repeat all the praise that has been given. Problems....the game does have it's problems, only online though. I haven't seen any single player problems. Number one online problem is being able to have people...

    How do old video game systems look on HD-TV's?

    Using s-video or yellow rca on my 65" samsung looks terrible. It was the main reason I stopped playin my PS2. But on my 36" tosh PS2 looks great.

    HD DVD player's upconversion quality?

    You know what Ron? That's the only thing I DIDN'T DO!! But I did everything from changing res, to calibration. I figured (or hoped) that it was because of the hdmi to dvi convert that made it not look good. I also thought maybe because I have an old bulp that it didn't look good. But HD net etc...

    HD DVD player's upconversion quality?

    Well I went ahead and bought the HD-A1, and while I was there I figured I minus well buy a 52" JVC HD-ILA :-) Riddick in HD on the JVC was amazing, it was beautiful. The upconvertion of SD looks pretty good on the JVC. Problem I have with this player is that HD DVD and SD DVD don't look much...

    *** Official X-MEN: THE LAST STAND Discussion Thread

    Where to begin...first let me say that 80% of the movie was really enjoyable, the other 20% I didn't like just because I used to read the comics. For those who have never read them the movie should have been fine, except for those of us here whom really study movie intricacies, pacing, etc...

    HD DVD player's upconversion quality?

    Very good points Micheal you actually decribed to the 'T' what I couldn't put into words. Also I didn't consider the size of the screen, because more often than not the smaller the screen the better the picture looks. I guess because it doesn't have to work as hard and you don't see the...

    HD DVD player's upconversion quality?

    In your opinion Micheal do you think that the fact it was on a 1080p set played any part in making it look better? It was the Westinghouse lcd 1080p

    HD DVD player's upconversion quality?

    Let me preface this by saying I was at BB and they had the demo running. The HD material looked awesome but what was freaking me out was that the sd upconverted looked great as well. They had Charlie and the chocolate factory playing and it looked VERY good, better than it did at home. Now I...

    I thing fight night would be really fun if I knew how to play it. But for a gamer isn't this a great time to be alive, every game that comes out is better than the one prior to it. Did you guys down load the trailer for lost planet or what ever the hell it is. MY GAWD!!!! It's so damn pretty...

    I'm at about 1800 hrs, and starting to get nervous. :frowning: Let's say my lamp gives me 2200 hours. With 400hrs left, at about 4hrs per day, I have 3 months left. Scary. I really don't want to spend $300 on a light bulb, sheesh. :rolleyes

    Parker to answer your question, YES, the xbox will work. I took back my core and bought a Premium this past weekend and the harddrive was already used. I knew something was up because when I opened the box the xbox symbol on the hard drive had scratches on it. But what confirmed it was that...

    HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: The Fifth Element - April Fools

    Shame, shame, shame on you!!!! I didn't read this till today so there was not even a thought about April fool's. All I could think about was WOW I gotta go get one of these! But at the same time I guess I should thank you for the thousands of dollars the "joke" saved me from spending. But...

    DVD Review HTF Review: Get Rich or Die Tryin'

    At first when I read this, I thought it was funny, because I took it as you making a joke. But then when I thought about it, the sad thing is it's true! If you do that it will give you some street credit. If I went to an older white guy's house, middle class (what have you)and I look on his dvd...

    New Basement HT...A few beginner ?'s though

    I thought this myself too, I remember when I first joined, I used to be on here all the time. This particular forum (contruction) used to be a hot spot for me, but I guess so many of us already have our theaters built that we don't visit so much any more...pity.

    opinions on jvc hd70fh96

    I'd like to know Micheal's opinion on this also, I'm a big fan of the JVC's. I saw one with HD-DVD 1080p material on it and was floored.

    I want to retract some of my previous statement. I am still a little burnt out on world war and Nazis, but COD2 does look awesome. I have replayed it from the begininng last night and changed my PJ to game settings, the settings I had my PJ on were for movies and it was way too dark. I couldn't...

    I think I'm burnt out on the Call of Duty series. I played so many on regular Xbox, and now on 360 it's like, "It looks good, it's cool but.....so what". I think I need some new games, I think I'm all world war and Nazi'ed out. I really want to play something on this 360 that the HD really...

    I usually play a game on normal, but that's usualy because I rent, since I'm actually paying for these games (parish the thought), I think I may actually play it on hard to make it last.
