I have one and love it. If you have the space and a little extra dough it is well worth it. I think you need space because a PJ is meant to project a large picture. I say some where along the lines of between 80-100 inch screen should be ideal. The better the PJ then the larger screen it can project without losing PQ
i've got a projector, but at the min im just using my 42 inch lcd as the projector isnt great for gaming for me (the blu's look awesome as hell though). i dont know if i have the projector too close or too far away but the top left and right corners seem a little fuzzy which is annoying as hell on cod when looking for an enemy in the distance. if anyone has suggestions theyre more than welcome lol
projector is an ally (il check model number in a mo lol)
the screen is plain matte white i think
input ps3 (hdmi 1080p)
I have never had that problem with my PJ. I dont play on mine all the time but i have sometimes. The thing i like about it is that is someone in a far distance moves its easier to spot them with a much larger screen then it would be in a smaller screen.
not yet but I plan on getting one! I am gonna Have a dedicated room with a 300" screen I believe that equates to a 25 foot screen with theater style recliners with buttkickers in them, I LOVE MY BASS(and not the FISH DARTH or 49girl or littlehorn)! Im looking at about 100 g's so it'll be awhile! about 2 years or so! But it will be worth it! Everyone's invited over! So what's going on with the clan meeting up somewhere and having a party? I got dibs at my house in 2012! Theater should be done by then! BYOB and POCORN THOUGH!
This be the projector I want! LIKE SEX FOR THE EYES:eek:

Tell me about it! Thing of beauty right there bro! Might build the room do all the wiring and such then do speakers,subs chairs and then top it off with the PJ. Should be down in price then! By then they will just have something even better!
