I'm looking to set up a 100 - 120" screen projector over the next month - so
been researching projectors.  I'm sold on the idea of 1080p having seen a
few demos.  With Netflix renting Blu-Rays now for on a $1 more per month -
there will be plenty of opportunity for good source material.

The refurbished BenQ W5000
http://shop.benq.us/benq-us/product.aspx?sku=3964860&culture=en-US seems
like a great deal at the moment for a 1080p DLP for only $1299.  You need to
download the instruction manual for placement limitations (110" screen needs
13-16' throw if I remember correctly).  The Epson 6100 also gets good
reviews if you need more light output.
