Back in the mid 90's I used to do commercial video and I hung a LOT of Zenith Pro851X projectors. We used to just project onto a wall that was painted with Ceiling White paint and bordered with 1x2 black painted pine. It worked GREAT and I decided then that if I ever get to where I'm thinking about getting a big TV I would look into projectors first. I know the technology has changed quite a bit, although there are still CRT projectors out there. Basically, I'm hoping someone can break this down for me in a concise manner. If I'm looking for something in the < $1,500 range, what should I be looking for and what should I be avoiding, both in terms of technologies and in terms of specific manufacturers and/or products? BTW, because I know someone will ask; yes, I could spend more money if I chose to, but as I've gotten older I have discovered that it's usually good to set reasonable budgetary constraints and try to stick with them, so that by the time I'm already into something and emotions have gotten involved, I already have the budget pre-decided. It tends to help reign in my tendency to fall in love with a new toy and spend way too much. Thank you in advance for any help you are able to render.
