I'm a newbie here and as all newbies seem to do, I'm asking for a little advice on my first purchase. I'm setting up a theater in the second bedroom of my apartment. Its 9 x 14 and I'll be able to make it completely dark, so ambient light will not be a problem. I'm trying to keep the purchase of my first projector around $1000 dollars and build upon that as my knowledge grows. So the basic question I have is what are your guys' feelings on the BenQ PB6100 and the Optoma H30? I'm leaning towards the BenQ mainly because of cost, but was wondering if its worth the extra $400 or so to upgrade to the H30. Any help is greatly appreciated and if you need more info then what I've given, just ask. Thanks.
