Hi All, Probably asked 1 million times here before but I can't decide, I just got paid so now it's time to purchase. I want a display device for my lounge, light can be easily controlled when it needs to be for films etc, but how good are projectors in normal use, i.e. normal for me is curtain closed and perhaps a couple of small lamps on (40w), I never have ceiling bulbs on. I know the projector will suffer when not in complete darkness, but how are they for general use for times where there will be some light? The projector I'm considering is the Panasonic AE-500 at £1,000 from Komplett The TV is was looking at was the Thomson 32Wb643 for £750 from unbeatable (does prog scan, some hdtv standards, hi-pix, component in, etc). I wouldn't want to spend loads on a screen, I know they are important but my pockets have limits, so I'd probably go with a huge piece of MDF painted and screwed to the wall and some black border. What do you think? The projector is tempting, I know films are likely to be allot more immersive with one, and If I move house, which I probably will do in a couple of years, they are allot more portable than a 70kg TV! Remember this will be my only display device apart from my pc which has a digital tv card, so really i'm wondering how practical projectors are for general use, i know they are allot better for films, but for an all rounder is a tv better? the room will never be flooded with light, i prefer my lounge pretty gloomy.. Thanks.
