    I think the standard suggestions are Sanyo Z2 or Panasonic AE500 for LCDs and maybe the Sharp Z91E for a DLP, leaving cash for a screen. There are others of course, perhaps less popular but probably just as good, your best bet is read the threads here, all common machines are likely mentioned.

    Hi Andrew,

    i am not up with the throw distance of the new Domino 20H, but I can firmly reccommend this wonderful projector. I have seen it up against some stiff competition, and remarkably, it really holds its own. You owe it to yourself to at least catch a demo. Good hunting,

    Regards,

    Paul H

    Depends how much you intend to use it and what you mainly want it for. Consoles, sky ,pc.
    AE2/3/500 and z1/2 are good ones to start with and £2000 will buy you some impressive Dlp's sharp z91 and optoma 56 are worth a look if Rainbows do not bother you.

    Here's my two-penneth :)

    2k will get you a Sony VPL-HS20 (see pricerunner).

    Better all round than AE500 or Z2 in my opinion. I owned a Z2, demoed an AE500 and now own an HS20.

    Spend the money on the best projector you can afford... buy a budget screen and upgrade this later if you feel the need.

    best regards

    :)
