i'm looking for a good projector to project my images onto a big screen.
screen size i'm looking at is approx 2.5meters by 2.5 or 3meters tall.

1)anyone knows what brand is good?and also, these projectors, can they watch tv with it?

2)are there any that i can connect a dvd player to it to project the pics instead of connecting my laptop to it?

3)let me know what kind of price i'm looking at (including the screen), with installation.;)
TIA

Why do you want to project the image this way? Are you doing it for presentation? The resulting image on the screen will not be that good. Personally, photographs are still best viewed and appreciated via prints.

actually the screen has less resolution than the images and computer monitors
so don't need to worry about pixelation

colour will be off... how much??? depending on screens...(can't control, unless you request manufacturer to built according to your specs.

pixelation shouldn't be a problem unless you give those resolution like 320x240.

A good decent video projector + screen + cables will cost you around $5k or more (depending on the quality that you are looking at). Forget about using those business projectors. They are for PowerPoint presentation. The colors are really bad. I'm using a 92" screen with a Panasonic AE700 video projector. PM me if you need more details.

local HT forum... a lot of good info about projector.

since your budget so powderful, you should get the full 1080P projector like the sony ruby or something like that. Get a big stewart screen and some form of calibration to get the correct colors. I using a cheapo spyder pro to calibrate my projector. Ok lah, not too bad the colors.

One thing about projectors is they they DEPRECIATE like crazy. Speakers/ amplifiers/ screens are all good "investments" but projectors are :nono:

But for image viewing, I think the dell 30" LCD is a better buy or even one of those pro LCD displays. If you want big, just seat closer lah..... it is the resolution that counts.

Still I would recommend you to get a projector for Movie watching purposes. I still feel that they are much better than Plasma/LCDs.

the image on the projector is not washed out if you have light control. I have a 42" plasma in my room and a projector in the living room. The image from the projector is better by far. With good light control, the image from a good projector is really quite stunning.
