I'm still on the fence on FP vs. RPTV. I've been reading great things about FP here and at other forums. I've read the pros and cons on both video types. Still I'm leaning towards RPTV. My location for viewing FP is somewhat irregular, i.e., 16'x13', low ceiling (6'4"), and an obstacle (air duct about 10-12 feet from the proposed screen location). The viewing area as for removing outside lighting is great, since the location is my basement. And lastly, I'm not sure I can get used to viewing TV in darkness. My viewing habits are probably 4-5 hours of daily TV viewing, and more on the weekends. With that type of daily viewing I'll be changing the bulb on an FP twice a year!! That's another con that I see with having FP. And then there is my uncertainty as to which projector will be the best for my environment. Everyone here has so many opinions, pro & con, regarding each and every projector. That makes a newby like me confused . So help me here folks and tell me what I should do. Stay with RPTV or try FP?? My budget is $3500 to maybe $5000.
