Choosing the right projector for your home theater  

I knew that one of the most expensive pieces was going to be the projector so that's where I started my research. As with almost every aspect that I'm going to cover on this topic my search always begins with google. How did we ever live without this tool folks? :)

I figured that there must be droves of information on creating your own home theater. I even thought that I would find the perfect website explaining everything I ever wanted to know and more. I was horribly wrong. In fact, it's one reason that I decided to sit down and create this blog to share my experience.

I started doing a lot of research on projectors to find out what the state of the technology was. I kind of knew what I wanted but also was afraid to find out what that was going to cost me. I looked at many projectors from Panasonic, InFocus, Sony, Dell, IBX, and Gateway. I probably looked at others as well but can't recall all of them now. To my surprise it really didn't take me that long to decide on the InFocus X1. It was receiving great reviews and made the top 10 list in it's price range.

Since I was looking for a projector primarily for playing DVDs, the X1 had exactly what I needed and for about 1/2 the price of the competitors. The following reviews will give you the skinny on the X1.

InFocus X1 Reviews:

I found the X1 online for $915 at www.onlinemicro.com. Last I looked it was even cheaper. :L

I got the projector about a week later and hooked it up immediately to my DVD player. I watched The Matrix: Reloaded on my dining room wall complete with shadows from the chandelier and a vase on the table. It was pure ecstasy.
