    I dunno, most things would look like crap on it, even at 1080P (the whole half dozen things that output that high). You'd have to sit so far back it wouldn't even matter that you had a TV that big. I'd be very curious to see what an HD movie would look like on that screen.

    I concur. They've come a long way with projectors. I am thinking about getting one.

    Wow. Though the first place I went mentally was with Joe. You'd have to be a half mile away to get "good" picture out of it.

    Don't they do 4000 lumen projectors (with decent bulp life) now, for a decent price? I remember seeing some multimedia HD enabled projectors a few months back.

    Anything brighter than that and I reckon it'll outshine the sun...

    If I pay 80,000 for anything it better go 0 to 60 in less than 7 seconds.

    If they have projectors rated at 4000 lumens, I doubt its anything that you could easily watch a movie on. The colors would most likely be all washed out.

    That being said, I have next to me a Epson Cinema 550 and I must say that if you can controll your light, the picture quality is simply amazing! Also, Epson seems to make the brighter home theater quality projectors, so you turn the birghtness up and can get a great picture even with some light in the room. The portable screen I've got now is only about 92 inches, but if I were to build/byt a bigger screen or throw the projector on the wall, I can easly get a screen size bigger than that TV. So to those saying that a projector would be better espically for the price, you've made a wise decision there. :thumb s

    Fun thing about that projector is that everyone I talked to about it didnt like the idea of a projector (said a normal TV would be better)... But then they saw it and really seemed to be amazed by it.:D
