    If you want it for home cinema then you could do far better with a little more money. The model you mention has a native 4:3 panel, low contrast (400:1) is a bit on the bright side, and has fairly low lamp-life by comparison with the current crop of home cinema projectors (1500hrs vs. 3000 - 5000hrs).

    I'd suggest you consider spending about a further £3-400 and look, for instance, at the Panasonic AE500 (700 on the way), Hitachi TX100, Sanyo Z2 (Z3 on the way) - any of these models will offer you higher resolution from widescreen panels, far better contrast range and colour performance that a projector designed for the presentation market. There are also a number of DLP projectors on the market in the price range - do a bit of reading here and you'll se what people have to say about them.
