    Got myself a 42" plasma about a year ago.. trouble is, the picture is just not big enough.. maybe I'm just being greedy. Anyway, this has now led me to the world of Projectors.

    Basicaly, having spent a load of cash on a plasma, the misses would kill me if I spent more than about 500 notes, therfore..

    Either brand new Epson TW10H for about £470

    or

    Something 2nd hand, i.e, AE300..

    Any ideas?

    Only problem is, I'm after a big picture, say 7 - 8 ft, from a throw of 12 ft.

    Sitting about 10ft back from the screen, how visible will the cell structure be?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I have a Ptae 300 shooting onto an 8ft screen and sit/project from just under 13' away and its fine. Even sitting closer no problems.

    Hi PJ, the ET1 is a great price but bulbs are a bit "dodgy" it seems reading around as i did for my little brother. Better to get an Epson with more reliable bulbs and cheaper bulbs was the advice i gave him :)

    Cant remember all the prices and stats right now though!
