started to look for projector any sites which may help me ??
Or recomendations ??
The people at AVS forum seem to be very projector inclined. And projector people ( a sponsor of the HTF) has pretty good prices. What are you looking for in a projector? And what is your budget? The answers to these questions would help in your quest for the best projector for you. I'm envious by the way. I want a projector too!
I want a projector which will play movies without changing the bulb to often and one which displays a big screen. The price which i was looking for is around $4000
The NEC LT150 is the one to check. There are threads in the Projector forum here and at AVS which will tell you more than enough.
Price these days is about $2400.
I calibrate, therefore I am
The Sony VW10HT is getting real close to that $4000 price point (I paid $5500 about 1.5 years ago.) A stellar performer for the money.

Just of out curiosity, how often do you have to replace your bulb? Just recently I have started getting interested in projectors. It will probably be a while before I ever get one, but that doesn't mean I can't learn more about them before that time arrives.
BTW, nice theater.

I'm gonna move this over to the Tv and Projectors area......

I hate to break it to you, but there isn't a "holy grail" cheap projector, or we would all have it!
That said, if you aren't subject to rainbow (search avsforum.com and you will understand) than the LT150 is a great deal. If you are, LCDs in your price range are the NEC VT540k i believe, and the Sanyo PLV-60 which is the same price as the 10HT now, and is a much better deal as it is one year newer, and has a bunch of new features.
I'll do a research on the Sanyo over Sony statement cause while the Sony 10HT is not perfect the Sanyo has lots of problems that imho make it inferior to the Sony...of course you'll be the judge.
CRT, LCD, DLP... Oh the choices are hard.
Hey RAF any dead pixel problems on your Sony?

You need to be clear on some questions.
1. What size screen / aspect ratio do you wish to have.
2. What room or area will you be setting this up in.
3. What will be the sources feeding the projector.
4. What are your viewing habits. In movies do you always view anamorphic widescreen material or letterboxed or 4:3 anime movies?
5. What are your buying options? Willing to buy online?
6. How important is overall picture quality to you. How tolerant are you of minor artifacts.
I see that u're in Australia, You will definitely benefit from visiting AVS Forums . There are a lot of Australians that hang around there.. maybe someone can give you a demo of each available technology since a budget of around US$4000 can get you a decent CRT/LCD/DLP projector.
