    £1400 puts you in the 720p. price bracket and I would say you are better to get a DLP in preference to LCD for less screen door effect. ie visible pixel grids. on the other hand some people have problems with seeing rainbows on DLP, and/or find the image less relaxing to view. It would be best if you could see examples of both before you decide.

    Seems like prime Optoma HD73 territory to me...

    Do a search for HD73 in this forum and have a read.

    :)
