    Looking to get a tv. I just moved into a basement studio apartment. But I would like a relatively large sized screen. I was looking into getting a 32" LCD, found a westinghouse for $1400. Is westinghouse anygood? I don't want a bulky 150 pound+ tv. I want hdtv, widescreen. I was totally into getting a lcd, but then I saw some posts about projecters. How are those with Video games? dvd's? and hdtv? How far back must they be? Studio isnt huge, but I want something nice. Thanx in advance for any and all help.

    Rob, projectors are great with all those sources. How far a projector is mounted from the screen is called the throw distance. It depends on the projector and how big of a screen you want. I have a 106" diagonal, 16:9 screen with my Infocus X1 projector and it's great. I use it for all our DVD viewing and occasional HDTV. You can use your wall as the screen, buy one, or make one for less than $40.00. You need to determine if you want DLP or LCD projector, and 4:3 or 16:9. For your needs,I recommend the Infocus 4805(DLP) projector. Check out Projectorcentral.com to read reviews and learn all about projectors.
