(sorry for cross-posting)
I just recently decided to buy a new LCD monitor to replace my 21" CRT. While looking at my options, I realized that projector prices have come down to the same price-range.
So, my instant thought was "why can't i just replace my monitor with a projector?" While I know a few IT guys at work that use projectors at home with computers, it's usually used for movies, games, etc. as a supplement to their monitors. I haven't heard of or seen anyone actually replace a monitor with a projector. I would appreciate your help with the pros/cons of doing this. I'm assuming a fairly dark room, projector/reflective paint on one wall, and needing at least 1024x768 (XGA?) resolution. My budget is around $1500. Am i nuts with this idea?
I don't need feedback like "the video isn't as good as CRT" in this case because I'm already past needing perfection here. The *kewl* factor trumps these issues. I am, however, interested in feedback like:
-"dude, the color wheel starts making noise after a month of daily use"
-"your eyes bug out when writing emails and such"
-"your video card can't handle video games on projectors for sustained periods of time"
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
