    Hi, after toying with the idea for ages, I've decided to take the plunge and get a projector (instead of a widescreen TV).
    How much would I be looking at for the minimum requirements for using with a dvd player?

    What else do I need (apart from the screen)?
    Would second hand be a better way to go, and if so are there any links?

    Many Thanks

    I went for the Panasonic PT AE100. It isn't the most stunning of projectors...but for the price, about £1300 it is fab.
    There has been a lot of reports about this projector failing but I am hoping it was down to a bad batch of early models.
    Go for a DVD with progressive scan component output if you can.
    Toshiba 510E....I think is affordable at £260.
    Or build a home cinema PC...the option I took. It will cost more but should deliver the best possible pictures to the projector.

    Cheers
