anyone who is recommending a 900 lumen projector for home theatre use needs to do some research on what can/should be used in the home as far as equipment. Please don't post replies to subjects unless you actually know what your talking about. People actually may take your advice. 1200 lumens is the recommended MINIMUM rating for in home use. That projector is a Business presentation projector and is completely inadequate for use in a home environment. Please nobody buy that unit or any projector for home use unless its a dedicated home theatre room that is dark. Remember no matter how great the projector is it can still only give you blacks that are as dark as the room it is in. Sony also makes a model number v2500 that is 1080p and the only major difference between the two other then obvious styling is the fact that the sony xbr2 series has the bravia pro video processing engine. This is the processor in the unit and on the Xbr is capable of improving lower level signals (1080i, 720p) up to 1080p. The xbr is well worth every penny though in my opinion as this is a very great feature to be able to upconvert lower level signals. Get the xbr you wont be sorry.
WOW, your first post has you digging up a 5 month old thread and acting like a TROLL.
Listen up dickwad, most CALIBRATED home theater projectors are in the 4-500 ANSI lumen range.
Learn how to read, it's a HOME THEATER PROJECTOR. Business projectors are the ones with 1500 lumens+ (to light up board rooms) and they're not available in 1080p resolution, as that res is for HDTV and HD-DVD/BluRay.
Oh yeah douchebag, any 1080p TV/Projector scales any lower res signal (720p & 1080i, 480i/p) to 1080p.
PLEASE, don't post replies unless you actually know what you're talking about. Wanker.
