    Hey,

    I need a bit of help choosing a projector for my home cinema,

    Im not sure exactly what the difference is between LCD and DLP, but here are the 2 I found:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3048963609&category=22610 - DLP

    Or

    Panasonic LCD Projector PTAE200 - LCD

    Both around the same kinda price....

    After a clear picture for watching sky and playing xbox.

    Cheers

    You should ALWAYS try and view a projector before purchase.

    DLP's have artifacts that are quite different to those of LCD. Rainbow effect, halo effect. THe former can be quite distracting and in some cases cause nausia. Viewing the unit would answer the question on whether you would be affected. The Plus is a business device even although it has some cinematic features like 16:9 setting. I cannot comment on picture quality having not seen it.

    I would do a search for
    PLUS DLP
    Rainbow effect

    then

    Panasonic AE100
    Panasonic AE200
    Panasonic AE300

    This should give you a days reading on what sorts of issues you might come up against
