lookin for a new lcd front projector around $4-5K any suggestions?
I really like Infocus and Sharp.
hmmm.. any models in particular?
JVC RS10 or the newer RS15
The RS20 and 25 are king of HT use for projectors under $10k, but the lower RS10 and RS15 are very good as well and can be had for ~$5k.
Too hard to give specifics, here is why:
I can't justify the price for a 1080P (yet), so infocus I'd get the x9 (720P). Thing is, you want to get a great screen for one. It helps SOOOOOOO much. I really like the Stewart brand. Don't get a business or education class projector (as their color pallets have extra white for "un-natural" brightness).
yea, been eye ballin the RS10 & RS15, the specs& reviews sound great on them, just kinda gettin other feedback right now, before i make a buy on a new projector
well, i'm thinkin 1080 is the way to go, i have a Panasonic pt ae700u right now, got it back in 05, along with a 93" Vuetec sliverstar screen, i have the panny connected to a HTPC, and have the resolution upscaled to 1280X720, it does pretty good job, but the blacks and grays colors it just cant do so well, time to get something better
have been lookin at the http://www.projectorcentral.com/Panasonic-PT-AE4000U.htm but not sure its gonna be what i'm wanting, but the price point is nice
That is a great price. Don't forget that blacks are the result of lack of light. So a new projector might not be the answer. You could just need new blinds in your home theater to block out the pesky sun.
Also, I have seen nothing but good things from panasonic in their HD products.
