    Hello.
    I know nothing at all about projectors, but i'm looking for one! What i want it for is to watch films, TV and use with my playstation. I'm looking at options under about £1700, the cheaper the better. I was also wondering, how well do projectors work with a reasonable anount of light on. Thanks for all your help, because i know nothing!!

    The Sanyo PLV30, NEC VT540, Mitsibushi MT1 are around £2000 (IIRC - actually, you'd better check the prices for the NEC and Mits).

    Also, the following threads may be of use to you:

    I've only seen the Sanyo out of these 3 and it looked fine in a room with a large window at lunchtime on an overcast day in Winter (i.e. moderate ambient light).

    Cheers,
    Liam

    If you're looking to get hold of one at a reasonable price I would advise you to keep checking on the auction sites such as www.ebay.co.uk or www.yahoo.co.uk, as they usually have the odd one available.
