    Not seen a seleco but generally a well set up CRT will give a more filmic (many say better) image than a LCD or DLP.

    As to screen size I would say as big as you can (nothing like the wow of a big screen) but you will be limited by throw distances.

    If you have a good engineer local to you who knows how to set up a 350 properly then the CRT would give you a great picture.

    If you have no experience with CRT and plan to do all the installation and set-up work yourself then I would choose the DLP instead.

    The HT200 is also progressive scan compatible, where the 350 is not, so this may help you with your choice.

    Regards

    They are two very different projectors. It's a bit like comparing a point & click camera to an SLR jobbie. The SLR is better, but that depends on whether you want an easy life.

    I have a Seleco 350 myself, and am very pleased with it, I am not convinced it's superior to the HT200 though. When I demo'd a Sim2 dlp at 7oaks I felt it was comparable almost to the Seleco 400 I had at the time.

    Incidentally, if you go for the 350 I'll set it up for you for the cost of a return flight. I lost a packet in the New Dolmen casino last time I was in Buggiba, and wouldn't mind an opportunity of winning it back ;)

    Thats because sevenoakes and many other showrooms cheat like mad when demo the sim200 & other lcd/dlp models, i saw one at my local branch, they were full of how good it was, and it was good , but when i climbed up behind it the cheeky buggers had a cable that run into the next room where a scaler was, !!!

    and once i got them to run it without the scaler you could see the pixels,
    they disapear ok if you sit 13 feet or more away from the screen, but any closer they show up , and the rainbow effect was aparent when demoing Pearl harbour. nice for 7k

    when compared to CRT either 2nd hand or brand new for 6k or under, no comparison !!!
