    Hi,

    Apologies in advance as I guess that there will have been hundreds of threads like this already. I've wanted a projector/home cinema room for a while now and I've just moved house and I'm going to take the plunge.

    I'm looking for a projector which will project to a (ideally) 100" screen from around 2.5-3m away (3m at an absolute push) which is under £550?

    I'm looking for:
    • 1080p - I watch Bluray/1080p movies & TV.
    • I'm Not bothered about 3D (It would be nice but isn't a huge selling point to me).
    • Throw distance ideally would be around 2.5m but the length of the room is around 3m
    • No speaker needed - I have my own speakers for this.
    • Occasionally used for gaming... mainly PC.
    Possible Options I've found:
    • Epson EH TW5100 @ £459 (Amazon)
    • Epson EH TW5200 @ £590 (Amazon) - Is there much difference to the TW5100? Also out of budget.
    • Optoma HD141X @ £449 (Amazon)
    • Optoma GT1070X @ £570 (Amazon) - Also over budget but 1m throw sounds good?
    • BenQ W1070+ @ £599 (Amazon) - Pretty much out of budget I think..
    • BenQ TH681+ @ £459 (Amazon) - Is 144Hz an advantage (it is when using for FPS gaming on Monitors but won't be playing FPS on this...)

    I'm also looking at screens, I would like an electric screen but don't want to break the bank a huge amount - this would be a cost on top of the projector costs above, am I being unrealistic wanting to spend under £100?

    I've found these:
    Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this and I'll welcome any recommendations!
