    Well I'm still waiting for that sub $2000 RP LCD or DLP or PLASMA (obviously not RP).

    As it seems I will be waiting quite some time I am still tempted by a $1000 range FP. My questions for the FP owners are:

    1. What's the best in this price range?
    2. What do you do about cable routing considering the components are at the front of the room?
    3. Can I assume you are all using something else for standard and HDTV (and decent CRT maybe)?

    Cheers.

    1. Some swear by the Infocus X1 (800x600 dlp; 4x3). If you can go a bit ($300 +/-) higher, many swear by the Infocus 4805 (854x480 +/- dlp; 16x9). I'm quite happy with my Sanyo Z1 (960x540 lcd; 16x9). It's quite good for HDTV among other things.

    2. Some hide cables in the ceiling. I have a big area rug, so I run the cables under the rug and then under the chairs, so they're pretty much hidden (except for an ugly run up the back wall). My projector sits on top of a wall shelf unit (Lack--$20 at Ikea!)

    3. I watch very little TV (in fact, I just disconnected my cable). That being said, I use my projector for everything. Regular really isn't that bad on a 100" screen. After all, the more you focus on the lousy picture quality, the less you notice the lousy program quality.

    There is also a good following for the Benq6100.

    I have the 6200 which I use for HD, DVD, and xbox. Any standard tv viewing I do is on a 32" direct view.

    My components are in the back of the room, so no problems with cables for me.
