    I posted a similar thread in the basics section, but I think that this is the more appropriate area.

    I am setting up a new FP Home theatre, and was wondering if anyone can give me some advice about whether I should spend the money and get a new DLP projector, or go for an older second-hand model without all the bells and whistles.

    I have my eye on a Barco Reality 6400. Big machine I know, but fairly impressive specs to I thought? (4000 ANSI etc.)

    Will the Barco do 16:9? Will I regret the purchase?

    Cheers,
    James

    It seems the Barco has a fairly low contrast ratio. Which Benq are you looking at? What room conditions do you have? What is your input source (HTPC, component), and what will you be viewing? (DVD, HDTV, Games)
