Ok im new to this and i read the av fax page so dont link me there. I might ask some ignorant questions but just bare with me. Im interested in buying a video projector for my home under $1,000. I dont mind second hand but I have no idea what brands are good and which ones iIshould stay away from. Also how big are most the pictures put out by the projector, 8 feet wide? Last question is how much distance to I need from the screen and the projector or whats recommened? Thanks in advance.
