    I just saw that SAMS club has the Infocus Screenplay 110 for $1988. Compared to say the X1 or similar projectors, is the Screenplay 110 a good buy? Some of its features are: HDTV compatable, DLP technology, 800x600, 1000 Lumens, 600 to 1 contrast. Does both 16:9 and 4:3. Anyone know about this unit? Thanks for your replys.

    I personally would not pay $2K for the Screenplay110. For that kind of money, I would kick in a few hundred and go with a Sony HS20. Also, you can save money and opt for the newer $1K Infocus X1 but try to do a demo if you can, or make sure there is a return policy just in case what you see you don't like.

    It depends on what you want to do with the projector. The X1 is incapable of doing a true anamorphic image that is capable of negotiating the full 852/3x480 resolution of dvd, you lose a bit of detail with the x1, but if you don't have anything to compare it to, then this is essentially a non-issue. Both projectors have the Faroudja processor, so thats fine. The Screenplay 110 has a 4x color wheel instead of a 2x on the X1 making rainbows and visual artifacts very hard to see. The 110 also has standard component and a DVI input on the back as well. These are all great features, but in the end it is your call, are more "features" worth the extra 900 bucks. I don't know. I considered the 110 very hard, but I ended up making the decision to go with the Panasonic AE500U complete HD support 1280x720, with all that stuff for a couple hundred less. LCD technology, but with Panasonic smooth screen technology, you can't see screen door very easily.
