    Too hard to give specifics, here is why:

    I can't justify the price for a 1080P (yet), so infocus I'd get the x9 (720P). Thing is, you want to get a great screen for one. It helps SOOOOOOO much. I really like the Stewart brand. Don't get a business or education class projector (as their color pallets have extra white for "un-natural" brightness).

    yea, been eye ballin the RS10 & RS15, the specs& reviews sound great on them, just kinda gettin other feedback right now, before i make a buy on a new projector

    well, i'm thinkin 1080 is the way to go, i have a Panasonic pt ae700u right now, got it back in 05, along with a 93" Vuetec sliverstar screen, i have the panny connected to a HTPC, and have the resolution upscaled to 1280X720, it does pretty good job, but the blacks and grays colors it just cant do so well, time to get something better:cool:

    have been lookin at the http://www.projectorcentral.com/Panasonic-PT-AE4000U.htm but not sure its gonna be what i'm wanting, but the price point is nice :)

    That is a great price. Don't forget that blacks are the result of lack of light. So a new projector might not be the answer. You could just need new blinds in your home theater to block out the pesky sun.

    Also, I have seen nothing but good things from panasonic in their HD products.
