    Since I don't think that InFocus makes a video grade projector, this is probably one of the conference room versions (and probably a portable at that).
    I've borrowed my company's InFocus a couple of times before I got my RPTV and they worked fairly well.
    The biggest problem with buying one is that these are not designed for a home theater so they exibit the following properties:
    • Loud cooling fan
    • Flaring whites
    • Stray light from the vents
    • Washed out blacks
    I would not spend $2000 for one. The picture on any RPTV of the same price is going to kill compared that lousy picture from one of these projectors. If the price is $500, then maybe I would consider one for special occasions like "drive-in" night outside, or superbowl parties.
