    Hi all.. I'm keen to get a budget LCD/DLP setup in our new living room. The picture size will be limited to around 180cms, and expect will use VGA only (playing DVDs/DivX movies from a laptop). Will occasionaly stick PS2 in too (have gold s-video lead for it). I am considering a BenQ 6100.. about £700 or thereabouts.. wondering of there's a better unit out there for similar cost ?!

    You might like to add the Infocus X1 to your list but demo before buying to make sure that you are not one of the few who suffers adverse affects from rainbows.

    have a search of the forums...
    Very basically, the way DLP works is that it only has one colour on the screen at a time, hence certain people are able to break the picture into these colours and they can see rainbows on the screen if you glance across it.
