If you want a true home theater experience without spending a fortune, you have some good options but you'll need to choose carefully. There are lots of "HD" projectors out there but many of them claim to butin something of a deceptive marketing practice. Instead, they accept an HD signal and dumb it down to a lesser resolution. The key term we're looking for is native resolution, and the has that at a healthy clip of 1080p. The home projector is currently marked . We even secured a free shipping CNETFS to use at checkout.
I've tested Vankyo projectors. They're easy to set up and the 1080p models deliver excellent pictures for all your action movies and concert videos. This projector's spec sheet is very solid considering the budget price. You can project an image of 46 to 300 inches at 5 to 30 feet. This model also has a 5,000:1 contrast ratio and 50,000 hours of lamp life. This should bring plenty of projector power to turn your living space or outdoor hang into a home theater for you and the crew. It's rare we find a native 1080p model for this cheap.
The V600 is normally double the price. The same model is selling forwhere it gets solid buyer reviews.
