If white is required that will rule out a few projectors straight away.

These are either white or light grey or white with some black on it.

Optoma HD20 £900
BenQ W1000 £1k
Sanyo Z700 £1100
Epson TW3500 £1300

A few others are available but black.

It is difficult to say which is better - LCD or DLP as you need to see both and decide which one you like.

All projectors listed by Keith have rich colours. There is not much of a difference between PJs in that price range.

I see that you have discounted the black ones. The Mit HC3800 is a good choice for large TV - it is DLP and is a very bright projector probably the brightest of all in that range.

awesome cheers, do you know if any of them in the price range can be fitted at an angle with the ability to adjust the angle of the lense. I don't think i have enough space to put it directly 5 ft away in front of the wall. I have a light in the way.
Oh also, has anyone got a white painted wall? will this do or do I still need a screen? (wall has just been painted white-matt emulsion white)
