    I wanted to ask your opinions if this would be a good deal. It's at the shopathometv.com website but I'm not sure which infocus model they have. My viewing would be dvd and xbox, but I'm aware that hd would be downcoverted so that would be an issue down the road. A comprimise I guess for their current price of 1399.
    What's your thoughts?

    Just to let you know, that package is for the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805, with the Draper Luma screen. I think this is a terrific deal for the price.

    That is an absolutely good deal. John! [​IMG]

    Yes, the InFocus is the Screenplay 4805, the Draper screen is measured diagonally at 16x9. Also, the Screenplay 4805 is equipped with a DVI input and is fully capable of handling 1080i so that's not an issue. This machine can do it all.

    Front Projection, it's the only way to fly my friend, go for it! [​IMG]

    It is a decent deal, not a GREAT deal. The 4805's msrp was just reduced to 1299$. That means you are essentialy paying regular price for the projector and 100$ for the screen. Find out the regular price for the screen then you will be able to see if it is a good deal or not. Personaly I think you can find better. Right now through infocus you get the projector for 1299$ and a FREE 76" screen and a FREE 30' S video cable. Sure the screen is small but it can bide you some time to save up for a better screen than the Draper.....which as foar as I know is pretty bottom of the barrel. Good luck.
