I am seriously considering a projector for everyday use. I would love watching TV and movies on a large screen. With that said I would need a projector with high brightness because my room is brightly lit during the day with one wall almost completely covered by two very large (8x6ft) windows. The sun does not shine through those windows but it is rather bright none the less. I have discovered the Dell 2300MP which has an attractive brightness rating of 2300 ANSI lumens and an even more attractive price of around $1400. It seems to have all the feautures and inputs that I would need but I don't know much about projectors in general. I also need some questions answered about screens and HDTV so here it goes: 1. I guess the main question would be, is the Dell a good choice? The reviews I have read were all positive and said it was an excellent value. I didn't even know Dell made projectors. Are there any other models to be recommended in this price range that have a brightness of at least 2000? 2. When watching HDTV on an XGA (1024x768) projector how does the picture look? I have never seen one in action and I have no idea. 3. This is a bit unrelated to projectors but I thought I'd throw it in because I can't find this info anywhere. Can an HDTV tuner tune regular analog stations along with HD stations? 4. When I use the throw distance calculator at ProjectorCentral it says it would be about 13 feet for a 67x37 screen which is what I would be using. Is that right? I don't know if I did it correctly. 5. What is the best kind of screen? I wouldn't want to spend more than $200. I found the Dalite Model B 37.5x67in manual screen at CousinsVideo.com for $124. Is that a good screen? Is glass bead a good type to get? Any other suggestions? About lamp life in everyday use. I am prepared to pay the price. I figure that if I put about $12 a month into a "Bulb" account replacing the bulb would be rather painless provided it lasts close to it's rated lifetime. Thanks for your time. EDIT: I have to add another question that is completely unrelated. Why has my post count reset to 1? It says this is my 1st of 1 post. I have posted several questions and at one time it was up to 16. Normally I don't worry about post count at all but I can't post any links untill I have 15 posts. Are posts tallied seperately in each section of the forums?
