    DVD projector Views: 1001
     Thursday, June 26 2008 @ 02:13 PM EDT
    Got this fantasy about buying a DVD projector and a cinema screen and spending some evenings in my garden watching Doctor Who on the big screen.
    I wondered if any of yous had a DVD projector or could advise me as to the best to get, how much distance you need between screen and projector, surround sound options, etc.

    Right - firstly a disclaimer - I'm no AV expert (Oh you guessed that already Smile )

    Price is the key to buying a projector.

    In my What TV mag the best projector is the Planar PD7060 for 1900

    It uses the Dark Chip 3 and has 1280x720 resolution.

    Without knowing your price range it's difficult to say more.

    Cheers, daveac

    Thanks for replying Dave. Nah! haven't got that much cash. Just two or three hundred quid - saw some on Amazon for that price with some good reviews. Just wondered if anybody out there actually owned one. Just scared tht I'm gonna get one and then the resolution is terrible or you have to have a room that's at least thirty foot long or something.

    So, I finally plucked up the courage and bought one and it arrived yesterday and all I can say is wow! The Optoma DV100 with built in speakers and DVD player, massive picture from as little as 3m away and crystal clear picture (all that and a handy carrying case).Had it up and running within 5 mins and I am very very impressed.
    Watched the first of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy yesterday and it took my breath away all over again. It filled the entire wall of my living room (a great picture even against wallpaper). The sweeping panoramas were amazing! It really is how these films should be seen.
    So, the question is which 'Who' should I watch on the Big Screen first. I thought maybe the Peter Cushin movies as they were designed for the cinema. Any other suggestions? Answers on a postcard to...er...here, please.

    Great!

    Before you choose your Dr Who - and before you buy an expensive screen - think about buying some special paint - ScreenGoo

    Wow. That's just geek-a-licious. Anyone know how much that costs?

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    The Star Wars Shop was selling it for just under $3000. Sigh. It is currently unavailable there, otherwise I would had pointed you there with a link.

    Every time I see that video, it reminds me how much I would love to have it, yet in reality, I am not sure how often I would use it.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Don't have the R2D2 and yes...sigh...but with my little DVD projector, I have to stop myself from using it more than I do already. It's fantastic. It makes a film a film once more is the only way I can describe it. It puts back that certain film-iness gene that is missing when you watch a film on the small screen. It makes watching a movie an experience that is special, something different from just watching TV. Transporting, transcending, just bloody WOW really. Go on, treat yourself!
