I'm __slowly__ finishing my remodel of my basement into an HT.

I've decided that a front projection display is the way to go because I can't afford plasma and don't like the "altar to the TV gods" look of a huge CRT.

Any thouhts / comments on this projector? It's the front runner in my dollars / peformance analysis right now.

How much can you get it for? Based on the MRSP, there are better projectors for the money. For instance...

- Panasonic L300U
- Sanyo Z1
- Sony HS10
- Sanyo 60HT
- Boxlite 13HD

The Sharp does has a fairly low ontrast ratio of 450:1. Any of the above projectors will yield a much better image, some of which even have wide panels (great for widescreen viewing).

Take a read through this thread in the FAQ area... Front Projection - How do I select one for my needs?

I actually just bought one for $1,000. At that price it looked a bunch better than the InFocus X1 so I jumped on it.
Hope it wasn't a mistake.
