Finally about to purchase a new DLP projector.
    #11239085 - 10/13/09 02:03 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Ive done so much research on whats the best and affordable at the same time, and I've narrowed my search finally.

I'm looking for something great for gaming, movies, and television.

I've narrowed it down to Mitsubishi

There is the Mitsubishi HC1600 :

Lumens:1700
Contrast Ratio:2500:1
HDMI (720p): Yes
HD: No
Price: $750

Then There is the Mitsubishi HD1000U

Lumens: 1500
Contrast Ratio: 2500:1
HDMI(720p): Yes
HD: Yes
Price: $795

I'm only willing to spend up to about $850.

If anyone is familiar with projectors, price ranges, compatibility, and the bar minimum of what a simple college gamer like me would be satisfied with, dont hesitate to do some research for yourself, and help me out with the best viable option.

Thanks guys!

I also just found out that they dont even really make the HD1000u's anymore, and now I have been recommended the Optima HD65.

Hmmm...

check out www.avsforum.com...a lot of people really know their shit there, and lots of discussions about topics like this.  yes, there are some stuck up assholes there, but if you ignore them, you can get some really good info.

peace

just be careful.  The bulbs for those things are so damn expensive.  I believe some warranties will cover bulb replacement.

Thanks guys.  I'm definitely going to check out that forum, I feel like I've posted there before.

I went to Bestbuy just to see what they had to offer.

Was previously recommended an Optoma HD70 by some guy in newyork I spoke with, but I found an HD71 at bestbuy for $650, original price on the internet was going for 1,200, and I managed to get someone to bump it down to 880.

BUT.

Best Buy will do it for $650, and the $250 dollar warranty covers me for 4 years, and includes one free bulb replacement.  Considering a bulb for one of these things is easily within the 200-300 dollar range.  I'm thinking this might be a great way to go, it comes to $888.98 after tax, and my roomate and I are planning on grabbing it this week.

Contrast Ratio: 4000:1
Lumens: 2,400
720p w/ HDMI

Optoma HD71

So what do you guys think?
