    Hi,
    One of my friends has just ordered a Sharp XR10s projector. Not sure how much he's researched into things much, but I thought I'd ask yourselves if he's made a good choice or if there is a better choice for the money.
    I don't know much at all about projectors, so just looking to see what's best at that price.
    Use mostly for DVD's, requires Component input I'd say and will be used in a slightly dimmed room. Room currently is small (say 3.5mX3.5m), but he'll be moving this year to a larger room in his new place.

    Any advice appreciated....
    Dan.

    Thanks, I've sent him the link to it.

    Sorry, was just in a hurry as he'd already placed the order and am at work atm. If I'd had more time, I would have researched plenty before posting.

    Great. Don't suppose you know how it compares to the XR10s do you?

    He's recieved his PJ now and it's not bad at all.
    Not ideal on a bright day but for the money pretty good. Don't think I saw compoent input on it tho, but he's happy

    Thanks anyways!
