    This will be for home theatre use - there are windows in the room, but they have shades and the room gets fairly dark

    looking for something 16:9 that would hopefully have component and composite inputs and hopefully a dvi connection

    i was looking at the infocus projectors, but the chepeast one of their good lineup is $1500 and is only 1000 LUMENS

    any suggestions would be appreciated as i'm moving into a new place in 2 weeks and need to purchase a tv - a friend of mine has a sharp projector, and its alright, but nothing amazing

    also looking for DLP rather than LCD and i would hope it can project 10 feet or so

    i actually just ordered one from woot for $385 or so shipped just to give it a try - if it doens't work out, i'll sell it and get something a little brighter depending on how this turns out

    i'm waiting on getting an m1 to anything cable yet because i'm trying to decide between hooking up a computer to it or getting an itv - just waiting on people to get all the different codecs and vlc fully working on itv before i get one

    how do you like the 4805? hopefully its good for a beginner projector and if not, it wasn't too expensive and i was expecting to spend $1000-1500
