I'm moving into a new home and I need to get a television.
I've been looking at HDTV's like the good ol plasma, lcd, led and dlp sets.
I have a very large wall that I would like to get a large tv set for, but the more I've been reading, the more it sounds like a projector would give me the best bang for my buck. This would be going in a room that is 20' x 17'. There are 3 large windows in this room so there is a ton of natural lighting during the day (I'm considering getting black out shades/blinds for this room)
I have never owned or even viewed a projector in action, but I'm reading rave reviews all over for this projector.
Optoma HD20 Home Theater Projector
Using this projector calculator, it appears that I would be able to get a 110" across or 126" diagonal viewing area with the projector at about 9' away from the wall.
So, my question to all of you is this....
Who has experience with this? Are there any hidden costs involved with these or maintenance costs that I am not aware of? Is installation something that I could do or should will I need to hire a professional? Is there much of a difference in floor or ceiling mounted?
Thanks for all of your help!
