    I currently own a 32" RCA television, and so my next television will logically be a widescreen one, I'm thinking front projector.

    Could someone fill me in on good deals, what to look for, etc. for 16:9 projectors?

    What's your budget?

    What size screen do you plan on using?

    What do you plan to use to drive it? Progressive scan DVD? Scaler? HDTV receiver? etc

    You didn't mention the Panasonic AE100, which starts at about $1300 I think if you import from Japan. Only 800-somethingx400-something tho.
    I have the Epson EMP-TW100 and it seriously kicks heinie [​IMG] for an LCD machine, but of course I'm biased.
