    theses seem to be the questions to ask when buying a projector

    How big is your viewing area? - 80in
    How far will you be sitting from the screen? - the rooms 8.5m long
    Can you darken the room? - yepp
    What screen are you planning to use? - electric roll down screen
    What will you mostly be watching? dvds and football (hdtv compatability would be nice '(hdmi connection)

    you have alot of options open to you for a grand but you are best off getting some demos first especially if you are determined to get a dlp,you need to find out if you suffer like me from the dreaded "rainbow effect",so dont discount lcd just yet.

    Hi

    Have a look at the Feb edition of Home Cinema Choice (if you can find it, may be on to Mar or Apr by now, knowing the way they date these mags!) - it has a head to head of 6 pj's in this price range including the popular Infocus 4805, Panasonic AE700, and Sanyo Z3.

    Hitachi PJTX100 matches your budget exactly and it is an excellent machine.

    Also have a look at sites like this for more info...

    Only other comment is that an 80inch electric screen won't be cheap...PJ
