What Projector to Buy?


Active Member
Hi, i am going to be moving into my new house and I have decided to put a projector in my upstairs loft. I have managed to get the builders to get my wiring put in before hand so the distance of where I would like the projector to go to the (screen) wall is 392cm.

I am looking to get a second hand HD projector but not sure which one and where to start.

If somebody could please advice, would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

The projectors forum would be a good start. I have been more than happy with my 720p Hitachi and could recommend it if you can find one. Remember when buying a projector you have to factor in the cost of bulb replacement so try and buy one with some life left in the present bulb and also research the cost of a replacement. I would imagine that there are deals on current new models. I got a free bulb when I bought mine 3/4 years ago.
