Hello everyone.. So, I'm just doing a bit of research as I want to get a projector. I would mostly be watching films and a bit of tv.. I first started my search online browsing various websites and as my budget is around £600 the InFocus x9 seems like a popular choice. I live in an open plan space with lots of light and though I would mostly be watching the projector at night, I'd still like it to be of a pretty good standard in the day if possible.. Apart from briefly thinking I want to go for a Canon XEED SX60 as there were a couple of 'refurbished' ones on Ebay for a good price, I wasn't sure I wanted to gamble, even though it was through an official Canon-represented seller. The Infocus x9 seemed like a good choice for the price, 2500:1 contrast ratio, 3500 hour lamp life, 28-30db noise, 1800 lumens... I took myself around Tottenham Court Road and went to check out some projectors instore.. Obviously this complicated matters.. First store I went into, the man was trying to sell me the LG AH215. He said the reason Optoma and Infocus sell their projectors slightly cheaper is because they get you on the cost of lamps in the future whereas with the LG lamps are under £100 and last 3000/4000 hours.. other spec: 1800 lumens.. 23db noise.. 2500:1 contrast ratio.. I then went to another shop and the guy there tried to sell me an Optoma GT7000. He mentioned that it has a lumens of 1600 and that I would not want any higher than that as for home cinema the strong colours would hurt the eyes after a while if the lumens was any higher even considering my bright roomy environment..???? The contrast ratio is 4000:1 (pretty good, right?) So, based on all that and/or what you may also know from experience or further expertise, what do you think? The HD65 also seems like a somewhat safe bet but the x9 seems generally more critically praised.. Any help, feedback, comments would be much appreciated!!!
