+1 for the need light control thing
I have a Eiki LCX-70 , at 100" diagonal
everyone is pretty impressed with it, and I use no screen just a flat white painted wall
We run it at 1080i most of the time
considering I got it for about 1500$ , I have done pretty well.
The only thing that is annoying is bulb purchases.
The bulb it came with lasted a year and a half - minimal usage - video games and movies only
next bulb costs me 300$, lasted one year - medium usage = vids,games, and computer last three months.
the bulb im on now costs less at 200 dollars, but it seems to be doing great so far.
I would highly suggest advancedlamps.com for you other bulb buyers reading this. I found a place selling refilimented ones for 277$ !(that i popped two of in the first ten mins of usage)
so buyer BEWARE! use only OEM, and order by part number specifically to find some savings.
I'd say the worst part about getting a projector is building a quality mount (made mine of welded steel after seeing the costs of these things)
and getting drapes / light control.
