Hello everyone! I have been reading the posts and also looking through old ones, and now I'm more confused than ever! :wink: Here's my situation: The television in my bedroom is taking about 15 minutes to do anything after I turn it on, (it's a 15 year old 27" sony). I plan on bringing my 36" WEGA into the bedroom because it is not big enough for my living room (32'x12' with 9' ceilings), my wife actually made the observation first (how lucky am I?!?!). I don't think it is worth fixing the 27", and I may as well take advantage and get a larger TV for the living room. The room gets a lot of light in the daytime, (we're in an apartment). Our viewing area is about 14-16 feet away from the television. We watch a lot of movies, and some television programs. I was thinking about the Grand WEGA, but I didn't want to spend all that much. The 60" and 65" sony rear projections won't likely fit through my door, so that kind of knocks them out. I found the GRAND WEGA for about $4400, but after reading everything, I have learned enough to know that I better ask some questions before I make such a large purchase, especially since I may be able to get something better.......I have read many posts and am now curious about front projectors, especially the new SONY (mainly because I'm slightly familiar with that brand). Btw, I also have a SONY surround sound system with built in 5 DVD player, etc., (no progressive scan....yet), and would like to use it with whatever system I get. I would like to stay under $3000 if possible, but if it is a HUGE difference I can stretch to $5000. Any advice, opinions, etc., would be greatly appreciated. My apologies for such a long message. Thank you in advance!!! -Morley D. p.s. please keep in mind that as much as I try to learn about all this technology, I really don't understand much of it, nor do I know/understand some/most of the terminology, so please keep it as simple as possible.
