    I'm finally retiring my 20" monitor as the heart of my home theatre.
    UPS is scheduled to deliver my new Panny PT-LC75 (LCD front projector) this afternoon, and I suspect work is really going to drag...
    More details after I get it up and running.

    It's a true XGA LCD projector (1024x768x3 panels) 1200 ANSI lumens. I haven't seen an ANSI contrast measurement; the full on/off is something like 400:1. (I'd guess that puts the ANSI contrast somewhere in the 200:1 - 250:1 range.)
    More details later - I really need to get a flat screen for it. (The very short-throw lens makes for really interesting geometry, really fast.)
    Also, I believe a gray-screen is a must.

    Congrats! As a recent projector buyer, I can tell you that watching movies on a regular TV becomes downright boring after seeing them take up your whole wall. A lot of people are very happy with the Panny too.
    And you're right, a gray screen is usually the best solution for a digital projector. I'm waiting on samples from Stewart for their Grayhawk and Firehawk materials before I decide on the screen.
