    Hello everyone...

    I thought this would be the forum for this since it involves gaming with consoles.

    I have bought an Epson S1+ Powerlight projector last year for over $1000USD and I noticed that projector prices have gone down quite a bit, and that they are much better quality. I love my Epson because it is super bright for presentations and other buisness apps, however for at home - the quality of the graphics could be better. I am trying to find another projector for use with xbox360/ps2/movies/etc that will have darker blacks with a higher contrast ratio, and also be closer to if not HD. I don't mind buying used, and ebay would be a nice place to find one - any suggestions on a model/brand that is affordable nowdays?

    Don't forget that with Costco the site and warehouses are separate. So what's on the site isn't always available in the warehouse.

    Wow I wish I could buy that. :)

    Well...I dunno...having already a projector in the house (Sharp) I find it nice but in terms of display I would rather have a Plasma or TFT TV.On the projector side , it depends where that thing is placed in the house , like mine, it's in the living and we had windows all over .,thus not so applicable when the sun is shining bright, but I visited a friend's house recently and he has that Dell's 26"....got me interested in buying it...by the way I don't really know whats the price like for a TFT or Plasma in your place ,but like me in Japan, a 32" would be in the range of 1500 US...and I won't mind paying the extra having the experience with projectors before and now....
