Hello everyone! I am looking for a budget home theater projector that i will be running my ps3 and xbox 360 through and maybe a computer, i want as good a picture as i can get for as little as possible. this will be set up in my bed room so it does not really need to be projecting that far maybe like 8-10 ft or more, need help... thank you p.s. a tip and a good cheaper saround sound system 5.1...

Thanks in advance!

Re: What home theater projector should i get?

Here again is a plethora of choices and depending on what you're trying to accomplish. JVC makes some great projectors and fantastic prices. Truth is, I can't see your room and don't know what type of home you have. JVC will give you the best bang for the buck, but you're going to come in at around $5,000. You can get a cheaper presentation type projector, but you will quickly find you will not be satisfied with the picture. We tell all of our clients, if they can't afford something good, don't waste their money on something cheap.

However, if you're not planning on living there long, you may want to find a cheapo. You can also get some surround sound in a box reasonably cheap ($100-300) at some big box store. If it's just a bedroom and not your main room for entertainment, I'm sure you don't want much. A lot will depend on how you plan on using the room. A decent surround sound system can cost around $2,400 - 5,000. This will depend if it's 5.1, 7.1, etc. Really, for a bedroom, simple stereo would probably be more than enough.

We have some ideas on set up at our site at It will have more information on how to set up a room, etc.

Take a look at the Panasonic AE3000. A great projector at less than $2400.

JVC is the absolute **** - my cousin owns one and it is AWESOME. The DILA (LCoS) technology really brings out the picture compared to my DLP Panasonic

Re: What home theater projector should i get?
You should also consider the weight of a projector. If you are going to be mounting a projector, and leaving it, you can probably go for a heavier projector weighing 8 or more pounds. The bigger a projector, within reason, means you will be paying less. 6 pound projectors are also very cheap, and these are probably the best priced units for traveling with. Anything around 4 pounds or less will get very expensive. 6 pounds is not too heavy, and should be very easy to carry around in a shoulder bag.
