    A few things come to mind with those specs (I personally have not seen this particular model yet):

    1. 1000 lumens should be about enough for a 100" screen. I would suggest a gray screen to improve the perceived contrast though.

    2. Most projectors with UHP bulbs tend to to have pictures that run a bit cold. It may (may) benefit from a colored filter of some sort.

    3. 350:1 on/off contrast is kind of on the low end for home theater use.

    4. 800x600 is not quite wide enough for uncompressed DVD use (848x480 is the min).

    Is there a particular reason to want this specific model? The $1400 AE100 may be a better choice. Or perhaps some used models. You can get a used XGA 1000 lumen projector for right about $1000.

    gabriel,
    nope, no particular reason for this model.
    ill probably try to check the xw20. im located in the philippines so my choices are quite limited but i think the ae100 is available here.
    thanks.
