    Just curious what LCD projectors would be really cool to look for as good used projectors? XGA or SVGA? What brands or models should I look for? I would want a projector that is as close as possible to the quality of an ae100. I'm guessing an XGA would be needed. A one or two year XGA LCD PJ that sells for less than an ae100? Impossible?

    Just curious, but if you are looking for the quality of an ae100, why don't you buy an ae100? Screen door?

    Try a Sony VPL-W400Q. They can be had used and in excellent shape for about 1500.
    Some will still even have a warranty.

    I have thought of the 400Q but for $1500.00 USD I might as well go for an ae100 right? Unless you're talking $1500.00 CAD??
