    It would be more helpfull if you specified a price range, but I'll reccomend the Infocus X1. You can get them for 900 dollars or less.

    I don't know of any new projectors that selll for only 400 dollars. You are almost certainly going to have to buy used. :hs:

    Good luck :o

    You could find one for that cheap, but you'll have to find one that has been used or refurb. Remember that the light bulbs for LCD/DLP/etc type of projectors might be $200-$400 by themselves. You might try some business auctions where they have a travel projector or a conference room projector they have already depreciated, and they might give it away for really cheap. Then you'll still need to buy a new bulb.... Find a couple of models that retail for $800-$900, then diligently search the net for a used one and you might get lucky.

    Just some ideas. Good luck.

    $700 is about the lowest you are going to get something decent for in the LCD/DLP lineups, go see the X1 in person if it doesn't make you sick after watching for 15-30min thats what I would go with.

    If it does make you sick I would say get the BenQ6100, thats what I'm getting rid of my X1 for.
