    You can either get:

    1. Used CRT
    2. Used Digital projector
    3. New Panasonic PT-AE100u

    What kind of room do you have? How's your light control? What size screen do you plan on getting?

    I've had good luck at ProjectorCentral though some people have purchased through ebay and ubid. You can also look at the for sale section of this forum and other home theater forums.
    Ideally, you want as dark of a room as possible, since the blackest scene in your movies will only be as dark as the light coming into your room.
