    You probably want a real 16:9 projector.

    But if this one is some way amazing deal. It could / would be worth a shot.

    Yes I would like it to be native wide screen. Does 4:3 mean it cant be? If so Im confused since there are reports that it does wide screen.


    Edit:
    Bummer I see what you mean by the 16:9.

    Can you recomend a good one under 2000.00? I have also noticed the Optoma H31, ScreenPlay 4805.

    I have installed Qty.3 of the 4805's and all the owners are extremely happy with them.


    The Panasonic 700 really gets high marks for an under $2K True HD Projector.

    New to Projetcors????

    You need to make sure to accomodates the throw distance for the screen size you want.

    Given the 100+" screen, What are your projector mounting options throw distance wise?

    my room is 22 x 15 I have not ran cable or installed a mount yet so I can mount it anywhere. The wall is about 12 foot x 6 foot. I just want the best for the buck, I have a tight budget and still need carpet and seats...

    If cost is really an consideration, I'd get a 4805 and be happy really.. Amazing under $1K projo.

    Optoma H31, ScreenPlay 4805 or InFocus X2,BenQ PB6110, NEC HT410, or if I could work it out and get a good deal for a Sanyo PLV-Z3 (under 1500.00).

    Out of these guys what do you think is the best one (z3 might not be a choice due to cost but who knows).


    Thank you for your help

    I am hopefull some real projector guys will chime in.

    I only have experience with the 4805 out of your list. Most people I know are either RP of some sort or Plasma still.

    Front Projection just recently seems to be gaining in popularity.
