    I have about 2500 bucks to put into a projector for my home theater. Any suggestions? I will primarily be using this for movie watching, but I am sure there will be 4:3 applications that will be seen as well. But, I am looking to set it for it's main usage for movies. I have about 19' for throw distance, but will probably mount it somewhere in the middle of the ceiling.

    TIA

    Since its main usage is for movies with maybe a little 4x3 viewing, can I suggest a 16x9 projector and 16x9 screen as well?

    will definately be going with a 16x9 screen and have been looking at the benq line. The PE 7800 and the PE 8700. The 8700 is clearly better, but I have those money constraints. debating waiting a few months to get the extra cash or going for the 7800 now. (negotiated my way down to 2600 bucks on the 7800). any insight???
